First ever Yorkie pup :)
I have just put a deposit down on my first ever yorkie puppy.
Can you please give me some advice on how to take care of him.
For example ...... how old should he be before he leaves his mother, I have been told that I can collect him when he is 6 weeks old, is this correct.
Also what type of food will I give him, I did want to start him on dry food rather than the tinned variety, would this be ok?
I would be most grateful for some tips and advise.
Congratulations!!! You will enjoy your yorkie pup sooo much :)
I would not pick up a yorkie pup before 12 weeks of age. This was some advice given to me by a yorkie breeder. They told me that up to 12 weeks, it is important for the yorkie pup to be weaned by his mum and it is an important part of socialisation training for him to play with the others in his litter.
Feeding your pup dry food would be fine, just check for the instructions on the back of the pack to see how much you need to dish out.
There is lots of advice on this website on training, nutrition, grooming and much more.
Please browse through the website and if there is anything you want more information on please ask us here :)
