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 [COLOR=green ! important][COLOR=green ! important]house[/COLOR] 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 [COLOR=green ! important][COLOR=green ! important]money[/COLOR][/COLOR] at this time to bring her to training classes. PLEASE I need all the help I can get.[/COLOR]

It sounds like you just need to spend a lot of time training... Almost all puppies are wild and hyper. One big misconception is they do not know unless they are told otherwise. You do not always need a trainer, youtube is a wonderful thing!
Yorkies are one of the hardest dogs to potty train, very hyper and super smart. As far at the potty training it takes time. If you notice her starting to sniff around, pick her up and bring her to her potty area. If it is a pad or out side you need to bring them there asap.
If they potty on the floor tell them no, bring them to their spot and tell them what ever word you want to use for potty. When they are puppies sometimes its best to bring them out every half an hour or so. When they go where they should, praise them! A create is another helpful tool. They will not go in there. If you put them in the create and take them out after a little bit bring them right to the spot.
As far as the people at the door its a lot to go over so I recommend using youtube to videos on how to handle this. Good luck and don't give us.
Ps. Dogs want to please you! They do not want to upset you by any means. So using treats and "good (name)" is one of the best ways for them to learn.

If the dog pees when company comes, it is called ecxcitement peeing and is not anything they can control. Mine does this and I know it, so I either pick him up or have the company meet us outside until he pees and settles down. One thing to do is to tell everyone to totally ignore him until you give the word that they can pet him. Turning your back on him may help him to settle down. Putting him on a short lesh can also help. Patience is a must. I never scold mine when he does wrong - only praise and treats when he does good. He has no clue that peeing in the house would upset me, because he has never been scolded for it. I only praise him when he goes where I want him to, the other I ignore.

I'm a little confused about the peeing. Is is submissive peeing, excitement peeing or are you saying that she is not house broken? I would put her on a leash and tether her to your side at all times and not allow her to have free roam of your home if this is a house breaking issue.

I understand your frustration. Cody is 8-1/2 months old and can be a handful. He's pretty well potty-trained .....unless he gets overly excited. When our grandkids (ages 4 & 7) come over, he goes nuts. I try to take him outside before they get here (or when they get here). As for the jumping, etc., Cody will do that at first if we don't calm him down. We use the command "off" and I use a water bottle with him when he gets too excited. He's now old enough and we've been using it enough that most of time I only have to show it to him and he will calm down. Like others have said, they are puppies and they will be hyper. Good luck.

My two Basset Hounds Pee whenever they get excited. They are potty trained most of the time, but when somebody comes to visit they pee. They are a little over a year. They're right about housebreaking a Yorkie though. I am still working on Zach who is almost 6 months old now. When I put him in his pen with his wee wee pad, he eats the wee wee pad and pees on the floor next to it. Zoe who is a 11 month old Shorkie housebroke by herself and now she is perfect. One day she went out to the back yard and has been going there every since.
