This little breed is full of spunk and personality with an overwhelming sense of confidence. They are entirely aware of their appealing appearance and they love attention and praise. They make great therapy and companion dogs thanks to their people-pleasing attitude and they are very easy to train as well. Yorkies need a bit of mental and physical stimulation due to their terrier roots, but despite those roots they are a very loyal and competent watchdog. Yorkies are also known for their tendency to bark at strangers and unfamiliar sounds, but this habit can be curbed with proper training.
