The Yorkshire Terrier, developed as a working farm dog, is not deliberately misbehaving with barking, toilet and separation issues.
It doesn't lay awake thinking of how to destroy the kitchen garbage cans and towels the next day.
His acting out frustration is the inability to figure out how to fit into our world - and often his owners’ frustration in not being able to teach their new pup basic house manners.
It doesn't have to be a battle! Simply look at it from the dog’s point of view.
You're trapped, alone and bored - can bark, chew or try to get out and find the leader.
Although he no longer has to hunt for food nor do a full day's work on the farm your Teacup Yorkshire Terrier still retains the instincts of his ancestors and even more of his species.
His role in our life has changed from exterminator to pet and with it our expectations of what this dog breed should be like.
What hasn't changed is his perception of our world, which can be confusing for a little dog! When you consider the world from the view of small dog it's a very different place.

He's now rested and excited to see you! He immediately is taken to the fenced yard to do his business while you change clothes - then gets to take a walk with you again.
He gets his meal and knows when he has to go (in about four hours) you'll let him out to do so then once more before curling up to sleep.
All is right in this new puppy’s world as he gets his needs met, not with clothes and fancy beds that humans think are cute but in things that make sense to him.
Exercise, discipline, structure.
He's a confident, loveable, household pet because he knows he can rely on certain things to happen on a regular basis.
He gets discipline as well as praise but naturally wants the praise so repeats those things that earn it.
Realize that Teacup Yorkies are first and foremost dogs, with dog instincts and thoughts.
He can't act like a human or react like a human, although many put human names to his actions.
Our world of words and emotion is confusing and inconsistent for the many puppies that inhabit it! Their instincts don't change and when we consider for a moment their view, we realize it takes little time and expense to make our loveable pets much happier dogs.
I will be back with some more tips soon.
All the best.
