Yorkies are affectionate, but they also want lots of attention; the breed is a good choice for someone who wants to dote on a dog. Yorkshire terriers make excellent watchdogs. But they can be snappy toward other children if not treated respectfully or gently.
Yes, the Yorkie breed is quite vocal. They have a lot to say and will bark at everything from an unfamiliar noise to when they want to play. Incorporating training measures early on in your Yorkie’s life will help stifle a bad barking habit before it becomes fully engrained.
Yorkies are not the easiest breed to train. It’s not because they aren’t smart; they are quite an intelligent breed. But they tend to be confident, curious, and a bit stubborn—all of which can make training more difficult.
The average Yorkie lifespan is 12.6 to 14.5 years, according to two studies completed in the UK and Japan.
According to their national breed club, Yorkies should be about 7-8 inches at the shoulder and weigh 3-7 lbs. But some individuals are smaller, and many are quite a bit larger.
With most children under about the age of 9 or 10…. no. That a child meant well is little solace to a Yorkshire Terrier who has been accidentally stepped on, sat on, rolled on, squeezed, or dropped onto the patio. In addition, many Yorkies feel overwhelmed by the loud voices, roughhousing, and quick movements that children can’t help making — and stress and fearfulness (even defensive biting) may be the result.
Yorkies are a great choice for first-time dog owners because they are so adaptable and require less work and attention as bigger dogs. They are lovable companions who are very loyal to their owners. When socialized, Yorkies are great with older children as well as other pets, so they do make very nice family animals.
According to canine psychologist Stanley Coren, Yorkies are “above-average intelligent” dogs. In fact, they’re ranked the 34th smartest dog breed out of 138 qualifying breeds. Even so, the Yorkie’s true intelligence comes from their ability to understand human emotions and communicate effectively.

Oblivious to its tiny toy stature, the Yorkshire Terrier has the bravery, energy, and confidence that might be expected of a dog several times its size. An intelligent dog, it responds well to obedience training. However, it is inclined to take advantage of owners who let it get away with behaviour that would be unacceptable in a larger dog and can become yappy, snappy, and demanding. With proper handling, this terrier displays its natural character: sweet, affectionate, loyal, and spirited. The Yorkshire Terrier was developed to catch the rats and mice that infested the woollen mills and mine shafts in the north of England. It was gradually miniaturized through breeding from the smallest individuals, and over time became a fashion accessory that was carried around by its lady owner. However, such pampering is at odds with the Yorkshire Terrier’s dynamic nature and it is much happier when allowed to walk for at least half an hour each day. The long, glossy show coat is wrapped around folded papers and secured with elastic bands to protect it outside the show ring. It is very time-consuming to maintain but the dogs generally love the extra attention.
The Yorkie’s origins trace from Scottish terrier lines in the Victorian era, specifically the Waterside terrier crossed with Paisley, Skye, Clydesdale, and rough coated Black and Tan English terriers. This terrier went to Yorkshire England from Scotland as a companion for immigrating weavers. They were brought to the USA in the late 1800s, and AKC recognition occurred in 1885.
