New Yorkie Puppy Care
Puppy proof your home
Yorkies are curious by nature and they will run around your home and chew on everything. Make sure the puppy doesn’t have access to the back of television cabinets, computer desks, wall units and other furniture
Hypoglycemia in tiny yorkie puppies
Hypoglycemia / Low blood sugar, is completely preventable. When you first bring your yorkie puppy home, I strongly advise you to feed yorkie you puppy. Make sure your yorkie puppy eats every 3-4 hours, even if it is a small amount and even if you have to hand feed your yorkie pup. Honey or syrup may also help as an emergency measure for low blood sugar
Dental issues can be prevented by brushing the teeth of your pet regularly to avoid the accumulation of disease causing bacteria on the gums. You can brush their teeth either in the morning or in the evening. .
Height and the tiny yorkie
It can be fatal for a yorkie to jump out of your arms when being held. When you pick your baby up, rather sit down and make sure you hold puppy. Do not put the puppy on a chair or couch as she can be seriously injured when jumping off.
Question & Answer
What should I feed my yorkie
I recommend Royal Canin, Eukanuba or Hills. Please remember, yorkies love chicken.
Should I get a boy or a girl?
The answer to this question may differ depending on the person that is being asked. Some people actually believe that one sex is better than the other sex. The battle of the sexes is not limited to humans after all. Some believe that the male dog is more affectionate and easier to train, while the female dog is more aggressive and protective of its owners and puppies. Well, the truth is that when it comes to dogs and puppies there is no superior sex. The qualities cited above are just the anecdotal observations of many dog owners. There is no study that has proved any general truism that a dog will behave a certain way because it is male or female. The behaviour of a dog will depend on how it is raised and trained as a puppy. Some dogs are more affectionate or aggressive than others because of the environment in which they were raised. The decision of whether to get a male or a female puppy is entirely dependent on the preference of the owner-to-be.
