Q. Well I have a 3 year old Yorkie. I don't walk him everyday and he has a lot of energy. He also tends to lick scratch and bite Himself.
A. It is a good idea to walk your dog daily, especially if he is full of energy. Most healthy dogs do best with 30 minutes of activity a day. The licking and biting himself may indicate that he has fleas or a skin problem. It is important to have him seen by a vet to determine the cause of his condition. Make sure you are applying a monthly flea preventative.

A. Well, he has a lot of energy probably because you don't walk him everyday. You should walk him at least once a day for half an hour.
The biting and scratching are probably not related. This could be due to allergies, fleas or mites.
