Q. Any potty training tips for yorkies? Peeing outside is downpat but he doesn't seem to understand that he should be pooping outside too.
A. Crate training is definitely the easiest way to train a dog. Crate him whenever you cannot watch him to prevent accidents indoors. Whenever you take him out, keep him out until he poops. If he does not poop, put him back in the crate and try again in 30 minutes. He is not allow free range of the house until he poops and pees outside. When he does praise him and allow him to play outside of the crate. Also, feeding him twice a day at scheduled intervals will help you create a schedule for him because you will know when he has eaten and when he has to poop.
