So that, no longer hair remains inside the ears which can cause itchiness and some other problems regarding cleanliness. After cutting the fur, you are supposed to use a cotton ball in the inside of the ears. This is to clean the remains of little hair that might have been stuck in the wax.
Trimming Body Hair:

Even the hair under the tail region will also need short trims. This is to avoid the poop stuck in the anus region. This is also one of the major points to remember while giving haircut to it.
It is suggested to brush off the excess of tiny hair bits that remains in the body of the pup. This will not let your pup have any kind of itchiness. The short trimmed hairs can also be removed by giving your pup a gentle body wash. It is advised to bathe your dog once in a month. That will be amazing if you manage to give a bathe after trimming body hair.
Trimming Facial Hair:
When we talk about the face, the most important region for having the perfect trimming are near eyes and snout. Because Yorkie should be able to have complete vision while with longer hair it will not be possible. Also, the snout area needs cleanliness because that’s where all the food goes, thus, short hair is important. You can keep comparatively long hair at the snout region above the snout to give a sassy mustache line. But, it is advised to generally keep the hair around snout and eyes shorter.
The most important thing about making trims around the face is that the pup needs to be guided well. When pup goes scared or do not cooperate you while you attempt to make the fur short, there might be unwanted complications. Thus, pat the head, touch the face as if you are trying to calm the pup and let it be comfortable with what you are doing.
