Puppies biver-yorkshire terrier: how to choose the right
We do not doubt that every owner wants to get a purebred and healthy puppy. How to do it right? Probably, it is not necessary to say that such a dog should be bought only in a specialized kennel.
First, examine the accompanying documents on the puppy, look at his parents. Do not be surprised if the mother for cutting the offspring will be cut.
Now you can see the kids. Immediately pay attention to the dental formula - it should be complete, incisors 6 x 6.
Color must comply with the standard. On the body is not allowed the presence of red hair. Put the puppy in a rack, but rather ask the breeder about it, estimate the silhouette of the baby. Of great importance is the back - it should be wide, straight and level. Look at the puppy in motion.
When you bring your baby to the house, in the very first days he will start to amaze you with his mind, wit. Beavers are infinitely friendly, always cheerful, but at the same time this crumb has its own opinion, and it will achieve its goal, showing incredible perseverance. Therefore, raising such a dog, you need to be tactful and persevering.
This process is conventionally divided into three parts. The first stage begins before weaning the baby from the mother. A puppy must understand that next to him are people who have rights and obligations, he must learn the rules of life according to the laws of the pack. During this period, he will have to learn to attack and defend, play, get food, but at the same time, if possible, get rid of stubbornness. Watch the mother raise her puppies. She lovingly teaches them liveliness, fun, but if the need arises, she punishes the mischievous for every offense.
Do not purchase a puppy that grew up without a mother. If the animal has not known maternal affection and love, it means that it has not received initial education. Subsequently, such a dog will be emotionally incapable of treating people with love.
The second stage begins after the relocation to a new home. This usually happens when the puppy is 6-8 weeks old. At this time, he learns the rules of coexistence with man. The kid should understand that it is impossible to whine at night, that he should sleep only in his place, not chew on shoes, furniture, etc.
After some time, the beaver puppy goes with the owner for a walk. From this begins the third phase of education. The puppy will have to learn to walk on a leash, not pick up anything from the ground, understand the commands “Fu!” And “Come to me!” If the owner lets him go off the leash.
This is not a cheap dog - Biewer-Yorkshire Terrier. The price of such a baby in Russia ranges from 25 to 50 thousand rubles.
