The Yorkshire is a small puppy, but very explosive and energetic. We are facing an animal that always barks, jumps, spins and moves; it is like a small and devastating tornado. In addition we have a race that is unwilling to be submissive and obedient, which makes its training much more difficult! So how should you give your dog a proper Yorkshire Training?
We are facing an animal that exists only to be whimsical and adorable. With its small size and manners it becomes an excitable dog that everyone wants to pamper. But be careful! We can’t overdo it. There is no worse mistake than to educate a Yorkshire give it everything that we can imagine. He needs to earn it … and being irresistibly adorable is not enough. Although it is difficult to say no to its lovely face, think it’s for the best.
A Yorkshire’s restless nature is very excitable and it has a large amount of energy. We should have that in mind when we are about to educate it: it means that because of its capricious personality and sometimes even dominant, we need to be very strict with it, more than we would be with a more docile dog.
The Yorkshire won’t consent you to hit or yell at it, it will only accept a firm owner, very confident and that never gives in. If you decide that your Yorkshire won’t jump to the couch, don’t you ever allow that. If the dog sees weakness and an opportunity to become the master of the house, you have to make your dog remember that you are the boss. Otherwise your dog will become a disaster.
In resume, what should you do? The Yorkshire Training is not so different from training a Collie, a German Shepherd or a Bulldog. Just make sure to be very firm and sure, and above all, consistent. You should be like this every day, every hour. Don’t let its adorable appearance make you say, “Well, just this time it can jump to the couch.” Be lovely, but not too much, and certainly not when he asks for it: only when it deserves it. This is how you will get a perfectly balanced and educated Yorkshire.
