If you decide to buy a Yorkie, it’s an excellent choice as you will never have such a loving and loyal pet. At the same time, having a Yorkie is a great responsibility and, first of all, you need to know how to potty-train your Yorkie in the right way. You also need to take into account their dependability on their owners and any owner needs to be protective in relation to this pet. In rare cases these dogs are shy but most of their representatives are social and easy to train.

Training should start early and it needs to be started as soon as you bring your puppy home.

It is great when you can stay home all day long and you can spend a lot of time on training as at the beginning you need to take your pet outside rather frequently, every two hours or even more often. Besides, every Yorkie is an individual and training needs to be optimized to meet your needs and the needs of your pet. The bladder of your Yorkie is not completely developed till he has grown.

The thing is that the scent will help the dog find the pad next time. A Yorkie puppy will not turn a perfect dog if you do not pay the needed attention. That is why you need to control the behavior of your puppy.

They can be rather excited sometimes and they will always show limitless energy but at the same time they can behave as a child who would need some quiet time. Considering potty-training, you need to take your puppy to the potty spot every time after he has had something to eat or drink. Also, your puppy needs to visit this potty spot after a long nap or after walking in the morning.
