Learning About Yorkies

Feb 12, 2008
Attention is something that all Yorkies crave and they will almost stop at nothing to get it. Yorkies feel that it is their job to keep their family safe and it is this trait that makes them excellent guard dogs. The fast movements of children can upset Yorkies and this is why they are best kept from homes that have any small children in them.

Yorkies are slowly but surely finding a way to squeeze into the hearts of millions of people around the world. This compact but very sturdy animal is a great addition to many homes because of their fun loving and outgoing nature. Yorkies are generally not shy at all and take well to other people in the house and even to other animals. Living the pampered life is what Yorkies like to do best and whoever can offer this to them will be a friend forever.

With a full grown Yorkie being able to still fit into a backpack or a doggy bag, this pup can go everywhere with their owner. And this is something that the pup would love as they love attention, in fact, they cannot seem to get enough of it. But don't forget, even though they love attention, they also have a mind of their own and show this through their independence.

Even though someone may not think it at first, the Yorkshire Terrier can make an excellent guard dog for your home and for your family. Even though with their size, they may not be able to scare off a stranger, they can certainly alert you to the presence of danger by barking like crazy. It is because of their dedication to their home and family that the Yorkies are so vocal.

Yorkies are also known for loving to run around the house or in circles at times, as they love their exercise. With all of this running around though, it is important that the Yorkies get the proper grooming that they need such as daily brushing of their long and silky coat. Without the daily brushing, their hair can get matted and end up a complete mess which will be hard to deal with. So by taking care of their coat on a regular basis, it will be so much easier.

Even though it seems like Yorkies would get along with everyone, they tend to dislike small children. It is generally the fast and unswift movements made by children that can scare off the Yorkies. Remember, Yorkies are small in size and the way a child looks when he or she is jumping towards them must be a scary experience. When in fear of a child, it would not be uncommon for them to bite at the child, which could cause physical and emotional damage.

And it is also because of their independence that they are sometimes hard to get house broken. Some people have experienced that Yorkies take a great deal more time and patience to housebreak. But, that is not saying that it cannot be done. With consistency, anything can be accomplished. Also, if they had the choice, Yorkies would stay away from the cold and rain, as it is something that can't stand.
