When they perceive humans as a weak leader is it little wonder they become a "problem dog"? They don't need abusive methods - they simply need a leader so they don't have to try to fill the role! In the Yorkshire Terrier's history are records of a breed that once was larger, roughly 10 pounds, and developed to run down and kill pests on the farm.
