hi, we think Teddy has a collapsing trachea which is apparently a common problem in Yorkies so we don't want to put a collar back on but lack of walks is making him naughty. We have a harness and are going to try that.
Does it get better? can they grow out of it. Teddy is 11 months old

Welcome. I hope it is not a collapsing trachea. Have you had him diagnosed by your vet? If not they can tell pretty easily. It usually occurs in dogs over 5 years of age but can happen ay any age. Definitley a harness will help. I hope he is ok.
