Well, a puppy at this age should be taken out do his business every 2-3 hours, and it takes a while for some breeds to learn. Now, the training, what do you mean by that? What he is not getting? The important thing is to research any breed before you buy a puppy, and see if that breed is up to your expectations. Now, since this is not a breed but a mix, you really do not know what you can expect as this puppy carries characteristics of two breeds and he can carry the best or the worst of the two breeds.
"A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself" - Josh Billings
well walking him, we have been trying to teach him to be right beside us and to heal and sit when we stop but stll nothing and as soon as he sees the front door you would think there was a big steak waiting for him
he is a puppy, a baby, you are expecting far too much from him. They have very short attention spans at this age. As for HB'ing he is just reaching the age where he should begin to understand & to have the physical ability to hold it. Yorkies are notorously hard to HB.
For the training, keep it short and always end on a positive note. Training should be kept in short 5-15 minute sessions daily. Carry tons of treats with you on the walks so when he is by your side, you give him the treat and say "good boy, good heel". When you stop, tell him to sit and when he does, give him the treat/praise...the important thing if you want a dog to sit/stay next to you for a certain amount of time is to also have a release command...For example, I give my dogs a command (sit) they do so, I give the treat ( at least when I was training them), then when it is okay for them to stand and continue on with whatever they were doing, you say "okay" or "free" (I'd suggest something like "free" because okay is used so often in conversations that it can be confusing for the dog.) As only a 5 month old puppy, you are expecting a lot of him...I would also suggest an obedience class or puppy class to socialize him as well as to help him learn all the commands you want him to.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender,your dog.You're his life,his love,his leader. He will be faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion
he thinks the walks are training sessions.. nothin fun at all and witht hat he is tence while on a walk... so of course when he comes in he relaxes again and realizes I need to go pee.... walk him on grass and let him run a bit.. It's a yorkie så you can teach him heel later... A great dane thoe... hahaha he'd have to learn to heal early in his life...

I have a 5 mth old Puggle. He was raised in a garage in a kennel. He can hold water 9 + hours but he has no idea where to Poop. We take him out immediately after eating and he goes, but sometimes he goes again later, no set pattern, there is where the problem comes. If we miss him for a second he is off pooping or he just poops as he walks. It doesn't bother him. When he does go outside we praise him and give him treats. I guess we just keep working at it, he has only been with us since 3/1.
Yeh, can you post a picture of you yorkie-poo? I have a new foster that I think is a yorkie-poodle mix. Yorkies in general have been known to be hard to potty train. they have small bladders so can't hold it that long. I'd say bring it out every hour to help instill the where to go. Give a tiny treat and praise the heck out of your pup. Act like he did the best thing in the world, just don't scare him.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
EVERY HOUR... do you not work? thats impossible when were home he goes out every two to three hours unless he lays on his side and puts his ears back thats his first sign i guess but we dont always see that
Every hour helps to eliminate the risk of accidents. When we brought our golden retriever home, I also put him out every hour. We have worked our way up to every 2-3 hours now. I would follow puttin's advice. Since it sounds like you work full-time, what about a puppy daycare? That might be helpful.
Every hour especially for that size dog is not too often. In the past we have had Yorkies one was oversized went 9 1/2 pds. the other was 5 pds. The smallest we got when he was just 7 weeks and it took a LOT of patience to train him. Their bladders are indeed very small. With as many dogs as we have had, read the advice you are being given! PATIENCE and PRAISE. it works with animals, and (works with kids too). Concentrate on your dog in just a few weeks he will be trained and you will all be happier.
