Yorkies: Make Dog Walking Services a Part of Their Routine!

Yorkies may seem like they are low maintenance due to their small size, but they still need daily walks and exercise! There are various dog walking services here in Miami, Florida that can be tailored to your Yorkie’s needs. Exercise has many benefits such as improved overall physical health, reduced stress and anxiety, better behavior, and a stronger bond with their owner. Plus, daily walks and exercise give your Yorkie an opportunity to socialize with other dogs and people- your pup will thank you for that!  

First, a Little Bit about the Yorkie Breed

The Yorkshire Terrier, commonly known as the Yorkie, were once used to chase rodents in textile mills by Scottish weavers who migrated to England in the mid 1800s. Today, they are popular lap dogs. A standard, full-grown Yorkie is about 7-8 inches tall on average, weighing about 7 pounds. Despite their small size, they have an energetic and feisty personality. Yorkies have long hair that some owners prefer to be trimmed short into a “puppy” cut. There are larger Yorkies and also teacup Yorkies. Please be very careful when purchasing amy size, but especially the teacup Yorkies. Do your research to find a reputable breeder that breeds for health, first. 

The Yorkie nature

Yorkies make amazing family pets and are perfect for those who live in small apartments. Yorkies are affectionate, playful, and sometimes bossy little dogs full of personality! it’s important for them to be mentally stimulated. Yorkies require a lot of grooming due to their long, hair-like coats. Despite their small body size, Yorkies sometimes think of themselves as guard dogs and can sometimes be excessive barkers. With the proper training, you can teach them to be quiet. 

The Importance of Regular Exercise for Yorkies

Yorkies need plenty of exercise throughout the day due to their energetic nature. They do not like to be left by themselves. Around 45 minutes of proper daily exercise will keep them stimulated physically and mentally. Wondering how to exercise your Yorkie? Here are some ideas:

  • Play hide and seek with their favorite toys
  • Play a gentle game of tug-of-war
  • Play fetch by throwing a small tennis ball 
  • Let them search for treats using a snuffle mat/food puzzle
  • Play chase with them
  • Take them for walks during the cooler hours of the day
