Yorkshire Terrier dogs - Yorkshire Terrier exercise

Although a small breed, the Yorkie does require regular exercise to burn off their energy. If you think you have a “lap dog” think again, Yorkies although small and easily picked up and carried about, do NEED a good romp about at least twice a day. A good half an hour retrieving a ball, will keep your dog in good, muscular condition. If you live in a town, with no open green spaces nearby, two short walks on the lead will be sufficient to keep them trim and interested in their surroundings.
