by Arttu Kari

Most people would agree that Yorkies are great-looking little dogs. They have a beautiful coat and an adorable face. However, their looks aren't the only reason why you may want to bring home a Yorkie when you decide the time has come to bring a new family member into your home. You can learn about some of the many other things that make Yorkies such great pets by reading the rest of the information that's offered below. 

Yorkies are great dogs for companionship

Yorkies are such great dogs for those looking for companionship. They love to give and receive affection and will be happy to curl up on your lap while you are enjoying a good book or watching a movie. In fact, Yorkies love to offer companionship so much that you shouldn't be surprised to find your Yorkie has become your shadow, happily following you around while you tend to household chores. If you want a dog that will love your cuddles, then a Yorkie would be a good choice. They are also very loyal, so you know your Yorkie will truly become a loving member of your family. 

Yorkies are smart dogs

Another nice thing to know about this breed is that they are intelligent dogs. Along with being intelligent, they also have a desire to make their family members happy. This combination makes them easy dogs to obedience train. You'll find they are quick to pick up on things like leash walking, housebreaking, and more. If you want to have a lot of fun with your Yorkie, then you should consider teaching them fun tricks because they will also have a great time learning, showing off to you, and just spending time with you while the two of you work on those tricks. 

Yorkies have a nice little size

The small size of the Yorkie also makes them a great choice for families who live in any size home, including a very small one. They don't take up much space, and they don't require a lot of space to exercise. They will also fit right in the car with the family, and this is good because they also tend to love going on family trips, or even just going with the family to run some errands and get out of the house for a bit. 

Yorkies can help secure your home

You may want to laugh when you think of a Yorkie as a watchdog, but it is true. One of the things that can prevent burglaries is a loud barking dog. Yorkies will often naturally guard their home, and when they feel their family is being threatened, they will relentlessly bark and alert your household to a problem.
