Compatibility with Children and Animals
Children and Yorkshires usually get on very well. However, given the size of this animal it is necessary to take precautions. In the same way as children can sometimes be rather brutal with their toys, these dogs can be injured by a child who shakes it and lets it drop. Having said this, the Yorkshire Terrier can teach children lots about affection, trust and mutual respect. Concerning other dog breeds, the Yorkshire can live perfectly well with them as long as they are the same size or similar.
Keep in Mind
If you acquire a Yorkshire Terrier do not forget the following:
- Their food must be rich in vitamins to keep their fur strong and shiny.
- Tie its fur back at the crown so as not to irritate its eyes.
- To keep its fur in a good state this dog must be bathed, groomed and taken to the hair salon regularly.
- The Yorkshire Terrier is a strong dog which does not often get ill.
- It needs exercise to get rid of excess energy.
The Yorkshire Terrier at Home
Yorkshire Terriers get used to living indoors easily and are ideal for a smaller area. Owing to their size they do not tolerate cold climates well and adapt better to warmer climates. It is important that they be taken out for a walk daily so that they can socialize with other dogs.
