The Yorkie is among the most popular small dog breed in the US. Find out why…

There are many small dog breeds in the US. So many, I would not even attempt to count them. However, among them all, the Yorkie is right on the top of the list as the most desired small dog breed of all time.

The Yorkie might be small in size, weighing in around 7 pounds but do not let their size fool you. They pack a powerful love and bond for their human counterpart. With proper attention and a loving owner a Yorkie can be a great pet. Be careful bringing this dog breed into your home if you have young children that might not treat the little one in a gentle caring fashion.

A Yorkie can become aggressive if it feels threatened. This dog breed tends to remember when they have been mistreated and will show aggressive behavior if the same circumstances arise. For example, if a child visit’s a few times and each time hurts the Yorkie it is likely this dog breed will show aggression towards the child in an attempt to keep itself safe.

This particular dog breed is trainable, however they prefer to think they are the pack leader. You will need to be consistent with your training of a Yorkie because they also tend to be a little on the stubborn side of the scale. Food rewards work great with this dog breed, however do not always reward with a treat and keep the treat a healthy one.

A common complaint associated with a Yorkie is potty training. It is very important that you stay on top of teaching a Yorkie that it is only acceptable to go outside. By allowing this dog breed to take advantage of you, you are merely teaching him or her that they, indeed are the pack leader and you are beneath them. This can also bring about bouts of aggression from a Yorkie.

Once a Yorkie truly understands his or her role in the family, they can be very kind and loving little bundles of fur. This dog breed enjoys affection and exercise. It is important that you consider the size of a Yorkie when you are out walking. They have little legs and it takes a great deal for them to keep up. These dogs are best suited for a slow paced walker on short walks. But if you notice your Yorkie has a lot of energy left over after a walk, he or she might need to go on walks more frequently and for a little longer.

Yorkies have the ability to be a great dog. They require regular grooming, but less frequent baths. There are several health concerns that are typical in this dog breed. Among some of the most popular Yorkie health issues are tooth decay, spinal injuries, problems delivering pups and fragile bones. If your house is fairly rough because of larger dogs and children, it might be best if you do not bring a Yorkie into your home.
