Take your Yorkie puppy to its first veterinary examination. During this visit, the puppy should get its last round of vaccinations.

Buy supplies for your puppy. It is important to purchase food that is specially formulated for puppies. The breeder may give you a small amount of food, but you will be responsible for the bulk of the food. You should also buy soft toys, a collar and a leash.

Create a bed area for your Yorkie puppy. You can purchase a puppy bed, or you can get a couple of blankets and place them in a crate. The puppy should have its own space for rest. When the puppy arrives in the home, make sure you introduce them to their bed or crate.

Housetrain your Yorkie puppy. You can put down pads around your home, so your puppy can relieve itself. When you first place the pads down, take your puppy to it.
