    Female Yorkie Puppy

    Hi, from Texas. I have a 4 month old female yorkie puppy, Fancy. Love her!!! She became a part of the household 4 days ago. We are trying to learn when, and where to do our potty business. I have a small fenced back yard and a crate. When I take her outside to potty, she waits until we come back in the house. Any tips?

    In my experience was to make sure to take mine out shortly after they ate, & after they played alot, or wakes up, I found that some dog treats are expensive, so what I used was Cheerio's cereal, when ever mine went outside to the bathroom I acted excited and told them they were good girls and gave them a cheerio cereal as a treat, and they seem to go out to go just to get a treat,but it worked, but they do still have the occasional accident in the house, especially over nite, so I found if I pick up their food and water after 6:00 in the evening and put it back down in the A.M. this seems to help, but that is what works for me! I think it might be differ for different ppl

    I have Yorkies also and I can tell you they are the slowest breed to catch on to potty training. My 2 year old Yorkie still will go in the house (and I have a doggie door) !! Good luck!

    Thanks for the advise. Seems to be a good idea. I eat frosted flakes and already have some in the house, do you think they will work as well?

    May I add you as a friend?

    I'm going through this now with a 5 month old mini schnauzer that I acquired 6 days ago. I have had to set my alarm half an hour earlier than normal to "wait" my puppy out. She loves being outdoors and prefers to explore rather than do her business. Luckily, I'm in SE New Mexico and the weather has warmed up enough that I can sit on the front porch and wait her out.

    If, after about 20 minutes she hasn't done her business, I immediately put her back in her crate inside the house and try again about 30 minutes later. When she has finally pottied, I let her back in the house free to run, play and have a doggie treat. There have been a few accidents in the past 6 days and I wonder if it's partly my fault because I cannot see my front door from my den. It's possible that she's waiting for me at the door and I just don't see her.

    I had good luck with the crate method with the last puppy I housebroke, but she was only 4 weeks old. I'm wondering if it takes longer with an older dog because they have to unlearn prior behaviors.

    Good luck with your yorkie!
