You should have thought of that before buying a puppy; It's like taking care of a child. You have to always be ready to take care of him/her.

I had the same problem with my yorkie at first.  You'll probably have a few weeks of this, but every night, she should sleep longer and longer.  Thats how Kody was.  He's now 5 months and sleeps through the night (I'vehad him for 2 months).  Def. let your yorkie sleep in the bed with you, its a wonderful experience, and strengthens your bonds!

I got my baby boy 6 weeks ago and I paper trained him.  I kept papers down for him in the  kitchen and I slept for a few weeks with him on a roll out mat on the floor in my living room since he was too small to get up and down from my bed.  He would get up every couple hours to walk around a little and then would come back and sleep by me.  Yorkies love affection and sleeping with you is important to them.  Now that he is a little bigger he sleeps by himself sometimes but still prefers to sleep by me.  Try sleeping by your baby and she will be much better at night.

Actually I think Jennie is completely wrong don't let your yorkie sleep with you. You could crush it or worse.

I would have to differ.  I got my yorkie when she was 5 weeks old.  Ever since she was 3 months old we have been letting her sleep in our bed with us.  She loves it!!  She sleeps right in the middle and we have never had a problem with rolling over on her or anything like that.  When she is not in our bed then the only other place she will sleep is in our 6 year old daughters bed.  I wouldn't have it any other way.

I think everyone has there own opinion on what should be done about this, i think you should try what others have told you or do what i did i had my yorkie peewee for 6 months as long as your firm about it then he/she will stick to what you say and obey you. I also think kaakjiish1992 has her own opinion mixed up letting your dog sleep with you is a great way to bond it also gives the both of you a secure feeling knowing the both of you are together and safe, since when do you hear about a dog getting crushed, but hey its like i said before everyone has there own opinion.

what's with Jason?
He practically bit her head off for asking a common question.
I agree with Kaakjiish1992, your yorkie could also roll off the bed and seriously get hurt.

When my puppy (about 13-14 weeks) woke me up i knew i had to do something. I would suggest warm milk or try even sleeping with her when you do- so she feels your heartbeat. And this may remind her of her mother. My puppy tends to lay right near my chest, and she sleeps right through the night. Give this a try and e-mail me if it works at am012@cairodurham.org thanks

Sleeping with your Yorkie is completely fine! My boyfriend got a male and he comes over to spend the night with me and sleeps with me. He is very loving and loves to sleep on the pillow with me. You will not crush them. He is soo cute and i love to sleep with him, and he likes it too :)

I'm getting an 8 week old baby Yorkie. Can anyone tell me what I should be extra careful about? How often should I feed him? How often does he go to the bathroom? Will he sleep alot? Are they very noisy? I know he'll cry at night, but are puppies loud barkers?

i just got my puppy back in the end of march and my puppy does that when she is in her crate but since she has been sleeping on my bed she will sleep through the night fine. When we first got her we started crate training her to go to sleep in it well she would get up and whine or figit through the night and i would end up taking her on the bed anyways. So she just started to sleep on my bed and its not bad at all shell get down and go to the bathroom on the paper if she has to then shell come right back and go back to sleep she doesnt figit anymore since shes been on my bed.

I think Kaakjish is wrong. I sleep with my dogs at night and they are completly fine and our bond is very strong! and if you let them sleep anywhere on the bed they'll be fine. They'll wake up. And when you get your dog, you should sleep with them because they're going to be homesick and going to need your support.

I have a nine month old Yorkie who is spoiled rotten. In fact, that is his name, Spoiled Rotten, and I wouldn't have him any other way. He has slept in the bed with me from day one. He's never peed or pooped in the bed, but early in the morning I put him down on a pee-pee pad next to my bed and he does both things on the pee-pee pad. Then he jumps back up in the bed with me. We snuggle and cuddle a lot in the bed, and he loves to snuggle and cuddle. At 6:30 every he wakes up every morning and whines until I get out of bed and feed him his breakfast. Then he comes back and gets back in bed with me.

He is a well adjusted little guy, but as spoiled as they come. He wants constant attention, and he knows every conceivable way of geting into mischief. Yorkies are very clever little dogs, so you have to watch him. They will surprise you with their intelligence. So, to keep him safe, you have to out wit him, and anticipate what mischief he's going to get into next.

Love your Yorkie every day. Mine is my pride and joy. I love him every bit as much as I loved my grown human children when they were little. In fact, my little guy is my dog child, and I love him to pieces, and he knows it.

My little Sophie did that for a couple of days after we got her, but now she sleeps through the night she is such a good cuddle buddy, but we put her in a little carrier cage for puppies and put in a fleece bed inside of the carrier, and she loved it! now that she is big enough to sleep with me, i ditched the cage.  Hopefully it will not last very much longer so good luck!

I just got my pup a week ago, so she is 7 weeks.  I have a few concerns.  First do you think it would be ok to leave her alone all day while I am at work?  Secondly,  I will have her for 3 1/2 weeks when I will have to leave to go on a holiday. She will be staying with my mother for 12 days and then i will get her back for about a week and a half before I have to start my full time job, do you think she will be ok?

Sometimes if you put an article of your clothing in the crate with the puppy, they will smell your scent and it comforts them.

That is your new baby girl and she is going to wake you just like an infant.

There may be times when she is crying because she needs to pee and you will need to bring her to where you have her go usually. If your training your puppy to go outside you might want to put a pee pad ( sold in pet stores) down in your kitchen so you don't have to go outside at night.  

Pretty soon this will be a thing of the past :)  hang in there!

Yorkies require a lot of care and demand a great deal of LOVE. Yes your Yorkie should sleep with you and they are sesitive to touch so not likely you,ll roll on them . Like children they can become very spoiled. As an example my bell has to have a glass of water on the nite table by our bed. She sometimes gets up thru the night for a drink of water. Do I Love her? More than my own kids -they can get their own water.

No, you should. Just make sure it sleeps over the cover,s maybe with his/her own blankets. Or make sure they have a few soft toys in their beds to keep the warm. A hot water bottle might work, as it imitates the heat of you as its new mother or its birth mother.

I have a yorkie puppy and a 1 year old Maltese- "ToKo" ( small breed too) and they both are crate trained. I had my Maltese trained, house broken and not crying at night in 3 days. I have only had my yorkie baby "Blade" for 3 days and he already only whines for 5 minutes and sleeps completely through the night. Here is some tips ( not that I am an expert or anything), but it has worked for me twice:
1. Get a crate that is only big enough for your baby to stand up and turn around in. They WILL NOT pee or poop where they sleep. But if it is big enough for them to get away from it, then they will use it in their crate. Size matters!
2. When they are small, it is important that they spend a lot of time in their crate. This helps them to recognize this is their bed and their space, but most importantly, it helps with house breaking.
3.When you get your baby out, IMMEDIATELY take him/her outside to do their business and same rules apply after eating.
Be patient, let them whine, they will live through it. Hope this helps :)

Well, I have encountered the same problem with my 2 pound yorkie pup Coco. She too would get up and bark during the night and if I didn't respond, well, you know what happens when puppies get upset...they go to the bathroom. So, I put her at the foot of my bed. Now she sleeps comfortably during the night and instead of waking up at 4:00 a.m. she can sleep until 7:00 a.m.!! She also doesn't have to go to the bathroom during the night anymore!! =] I read that this gives the dog a sense of security and feels more like a part of the "pack" which can make other types of training easier....and since dogs have amazing reflexes, NO YOU WILL NOT CRUSH YOUR DOG.

Yorkies want affection and constant love. I have a yorkie boy whom I adore, and he is a very demanding little guy, but you will be rewarded with unconditional love. I got my baby from a breeder, had him flown in, and he wanted in bed with me for about the first three weeks, then he was able to sleep in his doggie bed on the floor next to my bed.
Do not worry. Remember, that on the 3rd day God created Yorkies.

I know it is hard to hear your pet cry but you really have to make him sleep in his crate when he is a puppy.  I made my new puppy sleep alone the first few nights paying no attention to his whimper and now just a couple of weeks later he goes into his create on his own after our TV time is over at night.  its all part of the training process.

i got my yorkshire terrier about 2 weeks ago.right now she is 13 weeks old. you should always get a dog when they are about 10 weeks old,they need to stay with there parents for that long. we got our yorkshire terrier at 11 weeks and she sleeps through the night and never cries...i don't know when you got your yorkshire terrier but if you got earlier than 10 weeks you might have a bit of trouble under your hands!
