When you bring your Yorkie home from a reputable breeder everyone in the family is very excited and a lot of the times this might be your first Yorkie experience. Our breeders work very hard home raising their Yorkie’s so that the adoption into your new home is smooth and fun.
Yorkie puppies have lots of energy and natural curiosity, and they love to explore their new world in your home. This is part of what makes it so much fun for the family but can also lead your Yorkie into potential trouble and danger. Make sure you secure your home as you would for a toddler. If you are not sure and how to do this just read the steps below. It’s easy!
Know which plants in your home are toxic to your Yorkie and place them out of reach. Yorkie puppies love to smell and try new things like plants. Two plants that are typically found in your home would be Philodendrons and Caladium. Make sure these are out of reach.
Keep all medications out of your Yorkie puppies reach. Place them up high in your cabinets. Yorkie are chewers and will wait for your vitamins to roll off the table or the counter.
Put bathroom trash cans off of the ground including sanitary supplies and kitchen trash as well. Yorkie puppies will search for items that have not been introduced to before such as toilet paper, paper towel rolls, etc.
Although most of your furniture is safe for your Yorkie puppy there are still a few items you need to watch out for. Rocking chairs can sometimes harm your puppy’s tail or paw. Sliding doors can sometimes do the same since your puppy will follow you to love all over your home.
Electrical cords are possibly the most dangerous for your Yorkie puppy. Since cords are rubber/plastic and puppies love to chew this makes it a direct target for your Yorkie. Tie up your loose electrical cords and try to keep them out of sight.
Keep small objects away from your puppy as you would away from a child. Coins, knits, clothing, jewelry and anything else your Yorkie would love to chew on.
A fisherman needs to keep their hooks and lines away from your puppy.
Food scraps are your puppy’s desire! Make sure your Yorkie puppy never gets to your chicken bones and or any other scraps left behind.
DON’T WORRY! This is not forever. As your Yorkie grows with your family he/she becomes adjusted to the rules and environment of your home. Although there are many steps you must look into, it does not take much of your time. You as a Yorkie owner will also notice other steps yourself that may be dangerous to your puppy in your home. Once your Yorkie puppy is grown up it will all be about more fun for your family and your puppy.
