he Yorkshire terrier, or Yorkie as it is lovingly known as, is an ideal dog for apartment life. They are very active indoors and will do well without a yard. The Yorkie is sensitive to the cold and prefers warm climates.
Yorkshire Terriers are active little dogs, who need a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, they will still require you to take them for a walk. This will omprove theri temperment and behaviour. If your Yorkie runs around the house insanely, it is a sign that he needs to go on more or longer walks where he is made to heel beside or behind the human. Remember, in a Yorkie’s mind, the leader (or alpha dog) leads the way. They will also enjoy a nice solid long playtime in a safe open area off lead, such as a large fenced in yard or dog park.
