FUN – LOVING – ENERGETIC
A designer Doodle Breed, the sweet Yorkie Poo is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Mini or Toy Poodle. Aside from their canine warrior nature, the Yorkie Poo dogs are very affectionate, smart, and playful. They enjoy dog sports, play dates at dog parks, family adventures, and snuggle time. Yorkie Poo puppies train easily, are very fond of grooming/spa sessions, and make fast friends with other dogs and kids.
With a strong and attentive demeanor this breed is very in tune with their owner’s emotions and attitudes and with their environment. They can be protective if necessary, though they are not known to be aggressive. They have active minds and bodies that need constant stimulation and play, without adequate activity they can become bored quickly, which may lead them to be destructive. This can be easily fixed with plenty of toys and room to run.
Training and Socialization
With their strong devotion they are easily trainable as they are eager to please their owner. It also helps that they inherit the intelligence of both parent breeds. Though, they show enthusiasm in learning new tricks, you must keep in mind that their curiosity can steal their attention. Reward based training will surely keep their focus! Because of their sociable nature and desire to meet new people and pets, regular socialization is recommended to let your puppy’s true personality really shine.
Appearance and Grooming
A perfect blend of both parent breeds, it has small black eyes that set above a medium size muzzle, like that of the Australian Shepherd and a soft and silky coat that can be straight, wavy or curly like the Poodle parent. Regular grooming should be scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain a healthy coat and clipped nails. This breed coat colors include white, blue, black, yellow, brown, red, silver and gray.
