Here are 8 rules to follow:

  1. Take your Yorkie to the same designated area every single time.

  3. Bring your Yorkie there before each walk.
  4. Be patient.
  5. Bring your Yorkie outside often enough.
Female dogs are often said to be easier to house train than male dogs. "Many pet owners report that female dogs are easier to house train and are more attentive to their owners than male dogs, with male dogs being more aloof," Johanna Reel, registered vet technician for NHV Natural Pet, told INSIDER.
Some puppies take a little longer than others to house train. Male puppies sometimes learn a little more slowly than female puppies. And Toy breeds can learn more slowly than medium and large breeds for some reason.
The Yorkshire terrier -- or Yorkie -- is one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States because of its loyal, lively disposition. These toy dogs, however, are also notoriously difficult to house-train. With consistency and plenty of encouragement, you can potty-train even the stubbornest of dogs.

Yorkies and poodles are two affectionate and highly trainable breeds.

The crossbreed of the two, the Yorkie poo, will catch on to potty training quickly with a little positive reinforcement and a consistent training schedule.

Take your Yorkie poo outside to the same spot each morning when you wake up.


How to Potty Train a Yorkie with Puppy Pads

  1. Place several puppy training pads down on the ground next to each other to cover a few square feet.
  2. Feed your Yorkie and take the dog to the pads about 20 minutes after eating.
  3. Give the dog a verbal bathroom command, such as "Potty."
Before that they pee the same, by squatting. Like humans there is no real difference in behaviour prior to puberty, and it's no harder or easier to train a male or female. House training ideally happens at 8–12 weeks.

Reduce the amount of puppy pads to two or three in the designated potty spot in your home.

Once your yorkie consistently eliminates in the same spot, begin using just one puppy pad.

Keep your dog on a regular potty schedule and feed them at the same times each day to encourage going to the bathroom at the same times.
