Default Alexis new member to the family

I have a new Yorkshire Terrier puppy. She is just so beautiful and very very active. I am in the process of house training, as I cannot go out in the winter as I have COPD and the cold weather does not agree with it. Any suggestion are welcomed. She is 5 months old.

She is beautiful! Watch her after she wakes up or shortly after she ate. I don't give them to drink after a certain time, like 7 p.m..

I had 2 Silkie Terriers (much like Yorkies) and they used the puppy pads for their whole lives...each made it to 16+. Have fun with your new little one...makes me want another but I just can't do it again.

I agree with the puppy pad advice. I used them to house-train my Yorkie when he was a puppy - 10 years ago.

She's beautiful! I've never used puppy pads, but a lot of small dog owners do with great success, they sure are smart little cookies, so it shouldn't be too difficult. My Bayleigh says hello and welcome to being proudly owned by a yorkie : )
