We ordered this book after agreeing to rescue an "older" Yorkie that had been removed from a puppy-mill. We then went to our local library, reviewed most of the books on Yorkies and chose this book as the best all-around Yorkie-specific text for our needs, including common sense advice for all breeds. The book covers all the relevant topics in raising and caring for this fine noble breed, and then some. We have raised dogs for decades, and know that many breeds are unique in their needs for grooming and health care. The included DVD is a great addition for children who may not be willing to read the book but can learn from observing the training and educational segments on the DVD.
The book arrived in new condition, as advertised, was wonderfully well packaged and arrived within days of ordering. Couldn't be happier!

The only reason I did not give this book 5 stars is because it needs a good editor. If it were not for the editing needed, this would be the book I would recommend to anyone thinking about getting a Yorkie. It is packed with wonderful information.

Several subjects are repeated, like rewrites were accidently included in the book. Some subjects stop in the middle of a sentence. Like this Example: John bought a red car on Tuesday. Then later in the book; On Tuesday John bought a used red car, at good price. Then again; Alvin sold a red car to John on Tuesday. This is just bad editing or printing errors.

Being a trainer, breeder, and Yorkie owner for over 30 years I agreed with about 98% of Deborah Wood's information and training methods. She is brilliant about how Yorkies think and behave.
.
Two things I would revise in this book are age of spaying or neutering and the comments about mutant coat colors.
My research finds many vets now recommend neutering dogs AFTER a dogs growth plates have stopped growing. And they are sexually mature. This is usually between 8 months and one year of age. Younger is not better.

True nontraditional coat colors or mismarked patterns are frowned on by the AKC and show breeders. But not all off colors mean the gene that carries the color also carries health problems. Tri colored coats have happened in pure bred litters since the beginning and are now called Parti Colors. Most other colors do not mean health problems, Red , Chocolate, Golden, and Parti are just not the colors of the bred standard. To my knowledge only BLUE Born Yorkies have a greater risk of health problems including baldness. Most of the research I could find was with blue and red Dobermans.

Buy this book, but keep your red pencil handy to edit the mistakes.

Yorkshire terriers are so different from other dogs and this book will definitly help you out. It was so helpful and i used it as a constant resource during the first year. It helped alot during training and it gave some great grooming tips. I hope this book will help others just as it did for me and my yorkie.

Gives good information on this terrific breed but it's just an average book. The author doesn't know about proper dog nutrition; the only correct diet for them is a raw meat and bones diet. We wouldn't buy it for anyone and don't recommend it either.
