I definitely think it helps to have someone around all day, just basically to monitor them and see when they do go potty in the wrong place, although I'm sure many members were able to housetrain their Yorkie without being home all the time.

yes i think it is easier..... having someone there is just better for supervision too toby wasnt alone the first month he was with us, i think the first time i left him it was only for 3 hours but it felt like an eternity.

I don't see how anyone could think otherwise. If someone's home all day, the pup is going to be supervised and potty trained. I'm sure it's a lot quicker that way

i think housebreaking with someone home all day can be easier for the fact that the person who's home all day can catch any mistake right away, that way the puppy knows right from wrong AS SOON as it happens, they'll learn quicker.
if you've waited too long to tell em "uh oooh look what u did, don't do that again, NO" they kinda look at you like "did i do that? are you sure? i don't think i did that?" , hahaha they look confused *kinda the same principle with a toddler*
*but thats just my opinion, i dunno*
