Yorkshire Terrier FAQs
Need more information about yorkshire terriers?
I have decided to compile a page on Yorkshire Terrier FAQs due to all the questions that I have been receiving about yorkies.
Below you will find firstly the most asked, but then afterwards comes the exciting bit. As a new addition to the site I have decided to make this page interactive for all my readers.
I want to know what other information about yorkshire terriers YOU need! It is the only way I can improve my site.
What does this mean?
Basically, I am inviting anyone and everyone who has a yorkie question to fill out the form you will find below and ask away. I will try my best to answer questions as they come in. Not only this, but anyone who feels they have any yorkie wisdom they would like to share can also join in and answer questions also.
If you have a question about your yorkies health you can ask a qualified, professional on our ask a vet page.
How does that sound? Shall we get started?
Yorkie most frequently asked questions
Read on to view the yorkshire terrier FAQs or ask your own
What is the Yorkshire Terrier personality like?
The Yorkshire Terrier is a very brave dog and is willing to put itself on the line for you. It shows great compassion towards its owner and is forever loyal to you.
With such a strong personality the Yorkie is a very independent dog around the house. It will come and go as it pleases and will investigate every nook and cranny it possibly can. Read more...
Do yorkies shed?
Yorkhire terriers do not really shed. Their coats are like hair, they dont have fur, so they will lose some but not shed like other breeds do. This is a very good breed to have if you suffer from allergies.
How much grooming do yorkshire terriers require?
Yorkshire terriers require a lot of grooming! Yorkshire Terrier grooming can be very time consuming and needs to be done if you dont want your Yorkshire terriers coat to matt and become a mess. If you cant commit to the frequent brushing that is necessary to avoid this then you will have to at least commit to trimming your yorkies coat and keeping it neat and healthy.
Do yorkies need a lot of exercise?
The Yorkshire Terrier is a lively breed but does not need a lot of exercise. They are very active indoors and will do well as apartment dogs.
A yorkie however, will benefit from regular opportunities to run and play. Their high energy level means they will enjoy playing games and going out for walks.
Are yorkies good with children?
Yorkies are affectionate dogs however they are not naturally good with children. A yorkie which has been exposed to children as a puppy and brought up with them should be fine.
Sometimes the problem lies in the fact that small children are not aware that they can easily hurt these small dogs. Therefore it is advised that yorkies and small children are always supervised.
Would you recommend I buy a male or female?
Male and female Yorkies have different characters. Female Yorkies are affectionate, but on a different level to male Yorkies. They enjoy lap attention and plenty of fussing. Male Yorkies are more sociable dogs. They do not tend to shy away from visitors and like their presence to be known, and sometimes felt, straight away. They enjoy playing on a more regular basis and do so with a great appetite for fun.
Do yorkies bark a lot?
Yorkshire terriers tend to bark a lot! This makes them excellent guard dogs because they will sound the alarm when anyone gets near, be it day or night. If this does not sound like something you want to put up with do not buy a Yorkshire Terrier. This barking problem can be resolved by the proper training.
If your yorkie question involves a health issue please ask the experts advice and use an online veterinarian. You can get a quick, professional answer by using the box below.
BUT if you have a puppy who is clearly sick, injured or in pain, please consult your own vet immediately!
Professional, online veterinary help is just a click away!
