Home Alone Yorkie


I have a yorkshire terrier, Lolita, who I leave home from 07:30 in the morning to about 4:45 in the afternoon.

Is that too long for her to be in the apartment by herself?

Would she be happier if I got another yorkie so she could have company while I'm gone?


Many people have to leave their yorkies at home whilst they work.

Some suggest making sure their yorkies have lots of dog toys and some also suggest leaving the TV on so that their yorkies can hear voices whilst they are alone at home.

DogToys.com features dog toys selected especially for your dog breed.

If you are considering buying another yorkshire terrier it would be an idea to do it at a time where you have some time off work so that you can be there to supervise and make sure the 2 yorkies get along. The new yorkie would also have to be properly housebroken and in particular litter trained so that you don’t come back to any mess.

I hope this helps, please come back and let us know if you have any other questions.
