Yorkies (Yorkshire Terriers)

Yorkshire Terriers are alert and agile dogs that make good family pets. They’re active and love to be outdoors, but don’t mind a cuddle and a snooze.

As a dog expert who focuses on family and companion dogs – I get asked often about the Yorkie breed. Their beautiful coat and temperament make them a top recommendation for families of all ages and sizes.

At Oodle Life we have covered Yorkies extensively, and continue to add information and advice. Yorkies are one of our favorite breeds (even though they are not an Oodle!)

Although they are not a Poodle mix, they are low shedding with a single coat of hair. This makes them popular for families with allergies.

Like Poodle mixes, their coat maintenance can be a little challenging to DIY – but it is manageable!
