17 Yorkshire Terrier Facts That May Surprise You

Start getting your Yorkie used to being brushed and examined early, preferably as a puppy. Handle his paws a lot – dogs are sensitive about their paws – and look inside his mouth. Make grooming a positive experience, full of praise and rewards, and they set the stage for easy vet checks and other manipulations in adulthood.

As you groom him, also check for sores, rashes, and signs of infection such as redness, sensitivity, or inflammation of the skin, nose, mouth, eyes, and feet. The eyes should be clear with no redness or discharge. Their careful weekly check-up ensures that potential health problems are caught early.

#2 Most breeders will not sell puppies to families with children under the age of 5 or 6.

#3 They simply fall out of children’s arms too easily, are kicked by them, or are held too tightly.
