Making a Show Dog out of a Teacup Yorkshire Terrier

It isn't uncommon to see the smallest breed of dogs entered in dog competitions. They are very friendly, adorable, and energetic dogs that do quite well. You will find they are expensive to get your hands on though.

Breeders of this type of dog have to take the smallest and healthiest of their pups to create puppies that won't grow to be more than five pounds in weight. That is where a great deal of the cost that is passed on to the buyers comes into the picture.

It is possible to buy offspring from show dog winning Teacup Yorkies. Keep in mind that they are only bred a couple of times each year. With the lineage behind those puppies you can be sure they are going to fetch a premium price on the market.

You may find it is easier to take the dog and get it ready for dog shows on your own. It can be a winner even if it wasn't born from those in dog shows.

The best place to start is to look at photos of show quality pups. This will give you a good idea of what it is going to take for your pup to be one of them.

According to the AKC, they will compete in the toy group due to the size of it. There is no distinction though between this type of dog due to their smaller size, and the larger Yorkies for such competitive purposes.
