Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog breed from Great Britain. The FCI classifies him in group 3. Originally the Yorkshire Terrier was bred for rat and mouse hunting. Today, however, it is simply a popular social dog.

Characteristics of the Yorkshire Terrier

With a life expectancy of 13 to 16 years, the Yorkshire Terrier becomes relatively old. His height is around 20 centimetres, while his weight should not exceed 3.5 kilograms.

The fine coat of the Yorkshire Terrier is long and smooth and is characterized by its silky sheen. Its colour is steel grey with lighter shades.

The Yorkshire Terrier has a compact build and an upright posture. His ears are v-shaped, his eyes dark.

Yorkshire Terrier nature and character

Yorkshire Terriers are considered intelligent and have a lively, cheerful character. They are extremely alert and like to bark often, which can be a bit annoying for their masters.

Although the Yorkshire Terrier belongs to the particularly small breeds, it has a decidedly self-confident and intrepid character. This circumstance requires a consistent education. His playful nature nevertheless makes him an excellent family dog.

Activities with the Yorkshire Terrier

Yorkshire Terrier

Today the Yorkshire Terrier is a typical lapdog who also feels very comfortable in smaller apartments. However, since he is a former hunting dog, he has a strong urge to move despite his small body size.

Dog owners are therefore well advised to keep an eye on their Yorkshire Terrier when going for a walk. If he makes an exciting discovery, he tends to disappear suddenly into the bushes.

The fact that dog sport is not one of the greatest strengths of this compact breed is probably self-evident. If strength and endurance are not required excessively, however, one or the other sporty activity is still possible.

For example, the following dog sports are suitable for Yorkshire Terriers:

  • Clicker training
  • Dog dancing

Yorkshire Terrier Diseases

Unfortunately, the Yorkshire Terrier is particularly susceptible to a number of diseases. He often suffers from a sensitive digestion and tends to have problems with his eyes and kidneys.

In addition, the Yorkshire Terrier often suffers from skin problems, mostly due to allergic reactions to components of his food.

Last but not least, there is also an increased risk of complaints with the joints and bones. In addition to diseases of the hip joints and protruding kneecaps, bone growth in Yorkshire Terriers is also disturbed in some cases.

Yorkshire Terrier Food

The sensitive digestion as well as the tendency to diet-related allergies make a well-tolerated dog food for Yorkshire Terrier indispensable. A good choice might be our dog food with insect protein. Because this is particularly digestible and has almost no allergy potential.

In addition, it makes sense to prevent these diseases with special dietary supplements.
