Teaching your Yorkshire terrier tricks can be fun and exciting. They are very eager to please their owners so that helps. Offering plenty of positive reinforcement as they work to master them will help them feel confident in their abilities as well.
Yorkies are very agile as well as full of energy. Therefore they have the right combination of abilities to be able to do many different tricks successfully.
You want to take your time teaching them to your Yorkshire terrier though. You don’t want them to become confused or overwhelmed. Make sure you only work on one trick at a time.
Give your Yorkie plenty of time to learn one before you introduce anything else. Be consistent in your efforts too so that what is learned will remain fresh in the dogs mind.
Try to spend about 10 or 15 minutes each day going over that particular trick. Do it again and again until it becomes a habit for your Yorkshire terrier. If your dog is losing interest then cut down the time frames for each session to fit their level of concentration.
You need to make sure all the tricks you introduce are safe though. Don’t push your Yorkshire terrier to do risky tricks that could jeopardize their health.
