Yorkshire Terrier Character: Pros and Cons
The character of the Yorkshire Terrier has its pros and cons.
The Yorkshire Terrier will never refuse to jump and play. This dog is so hardy and tireless that it can be worn all day. And I’m ready to go after my man to the ends of the earth!
By nature, Yorkshire terriers are affectionate and loyal, able to capture the nuances of the hosts' mood and well-being. York is always ready to help: console and cheer, if you are sad, or share your joy. At the same time, it demonstrates an amazing sense of humor.
York is not suitable for unsociable owners - it strives to make friends with every one they meet and cross.
They say about him that this is a big dog in a small body - he himself imagines himself a giant! Therefore, fearless and able to show firmness and insist on his own. If they weren’t so tiny, beautiful bodyguards would come out of them. But even so, this baby is always ready to rush to the defense of his loved ones - regardless of the superior enemy forces.
They are extremely smart and inquisitive. Therefore, they learn easily. But monotony and excessive repetition can not stand.
Mimicry of representatives of the breed can not leave anyone indifferent. They so amiably convey all the nuances of their mood that one cannot help but smile.
Yorkies can easily get along with other animals, although on a walk they can bully with other dogs or chase cats.
Sometimes they play pranks, play pranks and are very touchingly offended if they feel left out of their attention.
All these qualities of the Yorkshire Terrier character made the breed one of the most popular in the world. But do not forget that only a dog for which they did not spare time and effort can be a wonderful companion - for training and socialization.
The nature of the Yorkshire Terrier in relation to children
Yorkshire Terrier, like any decorative breed, it is better not to start if the family has children under 5 years old. A small child can inadvertently cripple a pet. And York itself does not always have sufficient tolerance to endure familiarity and importunity from young children who are not yet able to control themselves - and can bite.
You can only take a representative of the breed if the children are old enough to handle the pet gently, and understand that the four-legged friend has his own desires and needs.
Your responsibility is to explain to the child the rules for communicating with the dog. Then, if the child is old enough to understand the entire measure of responsibility, they may well have developed friendly relations.
