What Kind of Cut Should I Get for My Yorkie?

i have a male blue and gold toy yorkshire terrier , i havent got him cut yet cause hes only a puppy but for his first haircut im wondering which haircut would look best on him, i dont want it to be too short does anyone have any knowledge on this subject?
thankyou joan , im pretty nervous leaving him for his first cut and i want to make shure that the people grooming him wont treat him poorly , have you heard of any places that dont treat the dogs properly , if so what questions should i ask when talking with someone potentially grooming him ?

The Teddy Bear Cut is cute on Yorkies: http://www.flickr.com/photos/irinasphotos/478463999/

I also love the Lion Cut: http://www.yorkietalk.com/forums/attachments/general-yorkshire-terrier-discussion/332049d1291065335-lion-cut-hair-do-dont-100_2247.jpg

Both are good options if you don’t want all the maintenance of long hair, but don’t like the hair to be too short, either.

A Puppy Cut is another basic cut if you don’t want him to look too "groomed": http://www.yorkietalk.com/forums/attachments/general-yorkshire-terrier-discussion/55993d1149289176-yorkie-puppy-cut-after_2.jpg

    Best discussed with the groomer doing your dog since we cannot see or feel the dog. Simply be very specific in what you want & don’t want. Don’t use terms like – just not too short. What is too short in my opinion as a groomer may be totally different from what is too short in your opinion. Most owners get a westie head on yorkies since both breeds have a similar shape & prick ears. Body depends on what you like & can maintain. Know if your dog is matted or has tangled coat, you will get whatever the groomer can humanely do especially for a 1st groom.
