Published on September 25 2022 562 views

You might be tempted to get a Yorkie puppy at four weeks of age, but they are still quite young and need a lot of attention. The breed is known for its high energy and needs extra attention during its formative years. But there are some tips that you can follow to help you raise a healthy and happy Yorkie puppy. The first tip is to feed the puppy nutritious, fresh foods according to the recommended feeding schedule. Make sure that the food you choose is a quality brand of canine milk replacer. Never use low-quality brands or other liquids. It may contain chemicals that could harm the pup. Another important tip is to let the Yorkie pups wean themselves naturally. This will reduce their risk of certain diseases and infections. Moreover, allowing the pups to wean themselves will reduce the risk of hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia and social anxiety are two common diseases that can affect small dogs, so it is important to ensure that they have plenty of socialization before the weaning process. While weaning your puppy from their all-liquid diet, it's important to remember that Yorkies are still young and need several meals daily. Typically, you should introduce a few solid foods to their diet when they are around eight or ten weeks old. The American Kennel Club recommends three meals a day during this period. You can also introduce dry kibble to your pup during this period. A game of tug-of-war is another great activity for your dog. Try to use a durable toy, like a ball or a rope. You can also play hide-and-seek and fetch with your Yorkie. Just make sure to follow the rules of the house. A Yorkie can develop a problem known as patellar luxation, which causes him to run abnormally. If the condition is mild, it won't require any medical treatment, but if it becomes severe, it may require surgery. A harness is recommended when walking a Yorkie, as it prevents the dog from getting too loose and causing damage to his joints. You can also socialize your Yorkie with children at an early age. Because Yorkies are small dogs, they need a lot of exercise. If they don't get enough exercise, they may become destructive. Playing with children gives your Yorkie a great workout and also helps strengthen the bond between you and your child. Just be sure to supervise your Yorkie around children as much as possible, as they can get quite aggressive.
