Don't Wait - Potty Train Your Yorkie Today

Most people get a Yorkie as a puppy when they are young. The pure breed Yorkie has specific characteristics that make them wonderful pets. However, training a Yorkie takes more time and effort as they tend to be a bit more stubborn. Yorkies usually mature into adults with the same patience and obedience as they mature in their puppy years.

It is important to start training the Yorkie as soon as you bring them home, or at least before your Yorkie is 2 months old. If you adopted your Yorkie from a shelter or a rescue organization, chances are that the dog has already been trained once. If that is the case, then they will probably be used to any standard commands. If you adopted your Yorkie as a puppy, then you need to start with basic commands like "sit" and "stay."

There are 4 types of Yorkie commands:

* Sit -Behaves towards the owner as if he or she is asking to be petted.

* Stay -Behaves towards approaching strangers as if they are asking to be petted.

* Down -Placing the dog on the ground in a laying down position.

* Come - Calling the dog when an unknown person knocks on the door or when they see you.

* Leave It - Leaving the dog alone when they have something to chew on or eat that they are not supposed to have.

The owner should consistently use the same commands for commands and the same tone of voice for each command. It is also important to train the Yorkie with the same exercise regularly. Dogs want to please their owners and they will respond to anything they perceive as praise.

A dog will also associate negative consequences with any given command and if the consequences are severe, he will not understand what is happening. For example, if you see your Yorkie chewing on your sofa, yanking it out of its pieces, then giving it a "leave it" command is counter-productive. Your dog will associate bad behavior with consequences that are too extreme.

A dog, depending on its breed, can have a hard time learning basic commands because of sound-level issues. A dog that you would want to allow to roam freely throughout the house with little supervision is not suitable for a Yorkie, who needs to be kept where you can hear yourself say "come." A dog that suddenly appears from out of nowhere in the middle of a cocktail party is not a candidate for the Yorkshire Terrier, who has a tendency to solitary confinement.

The Yorkshire Terrier also has a single word command for performing certain activities, such as "sit." People often confuse this for a more mature Yorkshire Terrier's "come here" command, but it is not the same thing. The Yorkshire Terrier "sit" means "don't move." One word is not necessarily better than the other when it comes to training a dog, but the Yorkie's "come here" command is sufficient.

The Yorkshire Terrier also has a habit of ignoring the owner's commands, a quality the owner must display a little bit higher than the typical Yorkie.  It is possible to train Yorkies with thisarsonian instinctseachborne in a slightly more stubborn manner than other dogs. After all, Yorkies are known for being a bit stubborn. As the owner, it is your responsibility to show Yorkies what is expected and what is unwanted behavior. ignored behaviour on the part of the Yorkie is not acceptable, and the dog will only get this message across in a firm but non-angry voice.

Your Yorkie will recognize you as the owner and rely on you for guidance. If you act like the owner when training the Yorkie, the Yorkie will recognize this authority within the relationship. Yorkies need to know their place in the "pack," and they will naturally strive to place themselves within the alpha dog position if they perceive the owner as being somewhat soft towards them.

A firm, yet gentle, hand is the best way the owner can ensure they maintain a dominant position in a relationship with a Yorkie. Small, aggressive actions taken towards the dog, such as shaking the dog or putting them up against a wall or table to establish who is more the dominant party, are considered aggressive and should be avoided. This action is however a way to deter the Yorkie's behaviour without inflicting physical pain. Yelling or speaking angrily is however stillagingistent, and will merely serve to scare the Yorkie.

Proper Yorkie potty training does not require the owner to scold, hit or punish the dog. There are training techniques that focus on positive reinforcement and discourage bad behaviour. Every Yorkie is going to have their own issues, and it is the owner's responsibility to focus on these and not act out against the dog. screaming or hitting the dog is never going to fix the issue.
