Your Yorkshire Terrier is a fluffy, tiny ball of energy. She loves to be the center of attention so teaching her how to do fun and exciting tricks will give her the means to attract attention from members of your family, guests, and anyone you see along your walks together.
Yorkshire Terriers are intelligent and playful. If you choose fun tricks to teach your Yorkie, she will likely obey as long as the rewards are enticing and of high-value. You can teach her how to do all kinds of cute things from stand on her hind legs to spinning around or rolling over. Small dogs are great at drawing attention with tricks they can do with their light body weight. Train your Yorkie to be the cutest dog on the block, starting with basic obedience commands and then moving on to fun tricks.
Your Yorkie will need to have those basic obedience commands down first. Once she has the basics understood and can do them without pause, it will be time to move on to the fun tricks. You can choose from a variety of tricks for your Yorkie. As you compile your list of good circus tricks, place them in order from easiest to most difficult. Start with the easiest and build on those with the harder tricks as she learns more and more. Remember your little purse dog is intelligent but can tire or bore easily. You’ll have to make her rewards for training well worth her time. Be sure to always give her a treat for doing these fun tricks, even after she has them down like her own one-dog performance, otherwise, she might just stop performing.
Because your Yorkie is interested in the stakes at hand, she's going to require some delicious treats to learn a new trick. She's also going to want to have fun, so keep your energy high during your training sessions. Her attention span might not be incredibly long, so be sure as you keep these training sessions fairly short yet often enough for her to continue to learn.
