Housebreaking Yorkshire Terriers can be Difficult

Housebreaking Yorkshire terriers can be very difficult. Are you ready for it? This is a serious question you need to ask yourself if you plan to get one who is a puppy and hasn't been trained.

This will be one of the hardest aspects of owning such a breed of dog. So it is wise to find out all the details about it before you commit to this type of dog.

You can also get around it by purchasing or adopting a dog who is older. They will already be housebroken but they often come with other habits you may not be happy with.

It all depends on how they were cared for by the previous owner. So it appears you will have to take the good with the bad if you want to enjoy one as your own.

What you need to understand with Yorkie training is that they are difficult in this category. Not to be stubborn or difficult but that light just doesn't seem to go on with them as quickly as it does with other breeds of dogs.

With this in mind, it isn't going to do you any good to punish your puppy for having an accident. In fact, this could prove to be rather confusing.

It can even result in it taking long for you to successfully train your new puppy. If you are interested in learning how to train your puppy the right way you need to read up on it in advance.

There are plenty of methods you can choose from so doing your homework to discover what is available is important. Make sure you pay attention to the best reviews on training as well.

This will allow you to benefit from what has worked or not worked for other owners. Their information can prove to be invaluable to you when housebreaking your own dog.

What you will find though is that just about every success story has to do with crate training.

That makes sense as this is a very practical method of housebreaking all dog breeds. It rewards them for doing well and ignores their negative behaviors. Since they really do want to please you they will soon get that connection that you are happy with certain behaviors.

Even so, be prepared for your pup to have some accidents from time to time. That is simply a given part of this particular breed. If you aren't patient enough for the process or to handle the occasional clean up, you really need to reconsider owning this breed of dog.

Being consistent in your efforts will really pay off as well. It will allow you to work with your dog instead of feeling like it is going in the opposite direction.

While housebreaking Yorkshire terriers can be difficult, it can be accomplished. You have to be prepared, patient, and dedicated to making it happen.

You also need to make sure your dog feels safe. If they are full of anxiety then it will be extremely difficult for them to focus on following the logical steps in this process.
