The Intelligent, Loveable And Sometimes Stubborn Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terriers are known for their compact and athletic builds. The Yorkie has a flat head with a dark nose and short . Their average weight is about 7-8 pounds and their height between 6 and 8 inches. They are an intelligent dog breed, but they can also be a little stubborn. Yorkshire Terriers lifespan usually falls between 13-17 years! Although they may be a small dog they more than make up for it with a big heart.

Yorkshire Terriers are some of the most loveable dogs you will have the opportunity to own. Known for their small size, make excellent companions, especially if you can handle their hyperactive and upbeat nature. Yorkshire Terriers soon become part of the family, being  a small, cute and adorable dogbreed probably has a lot to do with it.

Although Yorkshire terriers are known for their stubbornness, they are actually very trainable if you use the proper methods. Keeping the training happy and fun is a great way to get through to Yorkies. Terriers in general have a streak of independence that is best countered using treats, toys, and a and play during training. Being very intelligent they soon recognise different commands and are a joy to teach.

Yorkshire Terriers are sociable little dogs and enjoy being in the midst of all the activity and of family life. Terriers are extremely fun, energetic dogs that also love to lounge on your lap and they make excellent companions. Yorkies are a natural watchdog and they also seek and require a lot of attention. Mixing with other animals in the family is not usually a problem and they get on very well with cats and other dogs.

Being very picky eaters, Yorkshire terriers won’t accept a lot of foods if they don’t like them or if they’re mixed with other foods. They tend to be picky eaters with small appetites so keep your eye on them and try to stick to two hearty meals a day. Yorkie puppies should eat 3-4 times per day, but because of their small appetites they are susceptible to hypoglycaemia, which usually doesn’t last into adulthood.

Yorkies can be susceptible to problems with their teeth, in some cases early tooth decay. You will find that grooming instructions usually include help and advice on how to look after your Terriers teeth. While the dog itself is small, grooming can be a big job. Yorkshire Terriers are also popular pets for individuals susceptible to allergies, as their high-maintenance coat is virtually non-shedding.

All in all the is an absolute little bundle of joy that is quick to give and receive love, making them excellent companions and a fantastic addition to most families.
