Bonding with your Yorkshire Terrier

It is essential that a bond be built with your Yorkshire Terrier. Without this crucial step, you will not be able to train them. Once you bring them home, immediately institute a loving and caring relationship with them.

Yorkshire Terriers will respond much better to training commands when they are secure in their knowledge that they belong to the family. As with any relationship, you mush have mutual trust between your Yorkshire Terrier and you.

Yorkshire Terrier Training - How Your Yorkshire Terrier Learns

You can expect the learning period for your Yorkshire Terrier to be divided into 5 phases:

Teaching - This is where you must actually demonstrate to your Yorkshire Terrier what it is that you want them to do.

Practicing - Once  you have taught them something, practice with your Yorkie what they have just learned.

Generalizing - Here is where you practice with your Yorkshire Terrier in different locations that offer slight distractions. Doing so will help them to retain the information better.

Testing - Once you are reasonably sure that your Yorkshire Terrier has achieved success, it is time to test his accuracy in locations with a lot of distractions. When and if this fails, don't lose hope. Keep at it. Remember; Patience, Praise, and Persistence.

Internalizing - The rewarding phase. Your Yorkshire Terrier does everything they are taught.
