Confused HELP wild yorkie

Hi I have a female yorkie that I do not want to get rid of, but she is so out of control and I don't know what to do. When someone comes in the house she will bark like crazy and jump all over them. She does not bite.she smells everything. she runs around the house like crazy. she will go to the bathroom in front of you and take off and go in her create because she knows what she just did. I will take her out and tell her No then bring her outside. CAN ANYONE HELP IN THESE MATTER. I don't have money at this time to bring her to training classes. PLEASE I need all the help I can get.

maybe you can get a dog training book (either on line or at the library?) and see if there are any training videos on youtube? This sounds as though it might definitely help give her some focus. Good luck.

I too would like to know how old she is?
There is alot of training information you can read online and as Mom to Hot Rod suggested a training book would be a good and cheaper option other then classes.
If she is still a pup then this is normal behaviour and she should calm down as she gets older.
The only other thing I can suggest is to take her out for lots of excercise to tire her out

It really matters how old she is as to what approach to take.

You could try putting a peepad down for her in the house to see if she'll use it. If not, you will have to get her on a schedule. They tend to go potty first thing in the morning, after they eat, after playing, after napping, and before bedtime, and whenever they come out of the crate or any confinement. If she's not confined, it may be beneficial to limit her access to all but one or two rooms.

When you start training her, take her out every two hours. I she still goes in the house, take her out every hour. Give her a treat and a ton of praise when she does go outside. Give her a command like 'Go Potty' while she's in the act... then praise her like a maniac.

If she has an accident in the house, and you didn't see it, don't say anything to her, just clean it up. (No bad eye to her either). If you catch her doing something, try to pick her up and place her outside and give the command, 'Go Potty' (or whatever you want to use, just be consistant).

Never tell her 'No' to correct a pottying problem. Yorkies are very smart. You mean no potty in this place, but she'll learn it as potty, anywhere is bad, and just be confused. Totally no reaction at all on your part to accidents. If she goes out every two hours, she shouldn't have accidents in the house. If you work... plan this training to happen on the weekend, or when you're off 2 days in a row (is best).

This is Positive Reinforcement Training, and is how most Yorkies learn best. It may take longer if she's an older dog, but eventually she'll get it. You will have to make the time commitment of a weekend or two to teach her, and then do your best during the week if you're not home all the time.

Hope this helps...

I got her when she was 8wks and I just can't take it anymore. My house has rugs in all room. I keep her in a small area when I can't watch her. when I do let her out she is running around the house like crazy jumping all over couch and running in one room to another. When people come over and they don't like her to much.

My Yorkie has the same proplem!
I have to have him in a leash almost all the time, when he's going to run around i step on his leash, then he stops.
Try to have her always og a leash, to start with always hold the leash and make her follow you around, then she can't go run around, then start to let the leash drag after her when she walks, then put a shorter leash on and then finally take it off.
It works for me.
Then just give him lots of excersice! does she get enough excersise ?if not thats propably the proplem.
Yorkies are very energic dogs, if they dont get to walk much and run around they start to be really hyper.

I haven't studied psychology but wow it almost sounds like she is interpreting this differently. If she is smart enough to go to the crate after she has done her business she thinks that is what pleases you because she knows after she does it she has to go in there Not much help I know, just my two cents.

The pennies in a can has really helped me with Celine when she barks. I shake it and say "No Barking" she hates that sound.

Teach her to sit when people come over. Dogs can't train themselves. Maybe spend a few minutes with her on your lap and make her quiet down. When she is calm, reward her, so she knows that is what you expect. Like I said before, Yorkies learn best from being told what they're doing right, as opposed to what they're doing wrong.

This could also be a bonding problem. If you've lost your temper with her on a regular basis, it will make her be highstrung. I'm not trying to be rude or mean, just saying bc I have been there myself, and with Yorkies it will not work. Try to appreciate some silliness from her, she'll love you for it. Loose any preconceived notions you have about how you want her to be, and start to appreciate her for what she is and how she is. And then start to work slowly at eliminating any bad habits. Be patient with her and give her time to learn.

And no matter what happens throughout each day... never go to bed mad. Sit with her and tell her what a good girl she is and that you love her. You may think I am the one with the problem (not) but it is hard to say nice things with a grudge on your shoulder. Smile at her and pet her and cuddle with her. I have a rescue who hated baths. As I dryed her the first time, she got very snappy. Instead of yelling at her or correcting her, I told her 'What a pretty girl you are. Oh my, your hair is beautiful... and so shiny. You're so pretty!' Well, I don't think anyone ever told her that before, from her reaction. She calmed down and let me proceed with the brushing and drying. Did she understand what I said? Probably not. But she could hear my tone of voice and she felt safe.

Mine was raised around and by children. All she knew how to do was some tricks and how to play. All she wanted to do was play. Why? Because that's all anyone did with her, and people were nice to her when she played. I couldn't keep up with it so I had to teach her to calm down. I got her on my lap. and when she relaxed for 20 seconds I praised her and let her down. I extended the time in my lap gradually, bc she didn't like being held. Eventually she learned that quiet time was good too, and she came to me wanting to be held, maybe for 5 minutes or so, but what a difference from where we started. I still play with her, but it's no longer non stop. And with her it has to be positive reinforcement, as I fear her previous owner was a bit rough with her.

So treat her like a brand new dog from today on. Forgive her any prior bad behavior and just start fresh. Tell her 'Good Girl!' or if you use 'What a Good Girl!' you might get a better response. The 'w' sound seems to generate more interest from a dog and makes it that much more special for them. She will calm down.

Taking her for a walk around the neighborhood can be an excellent bonding experience, and she'll love you for letting her get out and about to sniff all there is to sniff and to learn about the world outside. Be careful tying her out... someone may steal her.

Get between her and the person and tell her 'No, get back' Move slowly towards her, and as soon as she backs up, reward her. When she learns you are in control of the door, the bad behavior will subside.
