Training a Yorkie requires endless repetition and lots of positive reinforcement. Although they come across as tough and standoffish, Yorkshire terriers remember a bad experience and will shy away from a trainer who uses negative reinforcement.
Yorkshire Terriers are known for their soft, beautiful coats and energy. According to the American Kennel Club, these dogs are one of the most popular breeds. But before breeding this type of canine, it's important to have a few tips, such as choosing a dog for breeding and understanding how often to breed the dog. In addition, you'll need to carefully monitor the pregnancy to safeguard your canine's health.
The Yorkshire terrier breed began in Great Britain. Originally called a "broken-haired Scotch Terrier," the breed was renamed the Yorkshire terrier in 1870. They came to the United States that decade and the American Kennel Club (AKC) admitted them as part of the toy group in 1885. In 2009, Yorkshire Terriers had the third highest number of AKC registrations.
