Raising york must begin as early as possible. It requires consistency and a certain hardness. Indeed, despite the fact that the Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog, she always strives to become a leader.
And since the owners often treat such dogs as eternal babies, they become especially aggressive and able to terrorize the whole family and its guests. Urgent measures are necessary if York suddenly begins to deteriorate behavior. In general, any terrier, regardless of its size, must undergo a course of training, at least for obedience.

It is imperative that when educating York they train him to use the toilet in a special tray. Every time he fulfills his needs in the space provided, the dog is encouraged. Then the training goes much faster.
The task of the owner in this training is at the right time to carry the puppy in his "toilet".

How to train York correctly: dog handlers advice on raising a Yorkshire terrier
It should be remembered that in this breed there are no fundamental differences between males and females. They are equally affectionate, willing to live in the house and do not differ in size. The first principle to be observed in raising a Yorkshire terrier is the principle of consistency. A Yorkshire terrier puppy must first learn to recognize its name and be able to walk on a leash. To achieve optimal results, you need to use its ability for associative learning.
For good behavior, reward him with tender words or delicacy; for a bad one, make a firm reprimand. Much depends on the correct choice of the name. Give your pet a short and easily recognizable name. During the first days, pronounce it so that it is associated with something pleasant. But when you reprimand him, in no case do not call him by name. Otherwise, the Yorkshire terrier puppy will begin to associate his name with unpleasant situations.
In any case, physical punishment is completely excluded. To teach a Yorkshire terrier to walk on a leash, start learning with introductory exercises. For example, offer him a walk holding your left foot, and if he obeys, praise him. Try to make your first walk where there are few people and cars so that your pet does not associate its first experiences with something unpleasant. Despite its small size, the Yorkshire Terrier needs a more varied diet than large dogs.
- It is better to train every day. If the owner is not confident in his abilities of the trainer, then it is better to contact the instructor-canine. Although it is possible to learn and self-study Yorkshire terrier.
- Start learning York should be at the age of one and a half to two months.
- Commands are pronounced distinctly and decisively, but not frightening. All training should be based on encouraging the right actions with praise and goodies.
When training York can not be beat, however, like any other dog. You can not shake him by the collar like a cat. You can call him to order and pay attention to yourself with a loud bang, for example, newspapers on the table.
