Yorkshire Terrier and his education
Yorkshire Terrier is a cute decorative dog. But such a reputation misleads many owners, and they believe that this dog is not needed to be raised and trained. This is absolutely wrong. The dog is quite intelligent, loyal to the owner and in need of contact. A long stay in solitude such a dog suffer painfully.
At first, the puppy should be left in the pen, and let out to run around the house only under supervision. The bones of the animal are very fragile, the joints are subject to dislocation. Falling from a low height may cause a paw fracture. It is necessary to monitor the change of teeth, which occurs by four months. Baby teeth do not always have time to fall out at the time of eruption of the permanent. And if after 4 months your dog has 2 rows of teeth in your mouth, then immediately go to the vet. Since this situation does not add health in the oral cavity, but only aggravates.
As a rule, such dogs are accustomed to the tray or diaper and walk infrequently. But at home they need to provide outdoor games with a ball or a stick, for which they will be happy to run. On the street it is better not to let york off the leash. A curious dog can get under the wheels of transport or get lost. Walking should be started only after all vaccinations and treatment from parasites.
Feeding fractional and limited range of products. If a dog eats ready-made food, then, as a rule, its composition provides the animal with all the necessary substances. Do not feed the dog with leftovers from the owners table.
Doggy wool does not have undercoat. The consequence of this, on the one hand, is the absence of molting, and on the other, the dog is cold in winter, for walking outside it should be dressed in a warm jumpsuit. Not be superfluous to be matched to size shoes.
The structure of york hair is similar to human hair, and needs care and haircut. Bathing a dog is made every 10 days using shampoo and balm-conditioner. Combing hair needs daily.
Terterchik are cut, both independently and with the involvement of a hairdresser for dogs. Usually they leave a beautiful “skirt” and flared on the legs. The hair on the head is shortly sheared, or with the help of a hairpin they make a cheerful “palm tree”.
Claws dogs need to cut. This is done about once every two weeks. First, the claws are cut with guillotine nippers (little by little, avoiding damage to the blood vessels), then they are turned to smoothness with a nail file.
Teeth Yorkshire terrier need periodic inspection by a veterinarian. Due to the viscous saliva and the characteristics of the jaw structure, the dog’s teeth are prone to the accumulation of tartar. At home, Yorkies brush their teeth with special toothpaste and give out special toys for cleaning the mouth.
As you can see, the care of such a dog is not easy. The possibility of the occurrence of a disease is not excluded. Thus, one should decide on the acquisition of York only after studying all aspects of owning a dog of this breed.
