Maggie Mahoney Reveals a Guide for Caring for Your Dog


Author Maggie Mahoney reveals a guide for every pet lover and owner who wants to learn more about Yorkshire terriers with her new publication, "Caring For Your New Yorkie Puppy." This practical book provides readers tips and information on how to care for this particular breed of canine. It also includes fun facts that they will thoroughly enjoy.

Mahoney uncovers observations and opinions of many Yorkie lovers and owners that one should consider before adopting or raising a Yorkshire terrier. The choice of a breed is one of the most important ones that one should make during this process. The breed one chooses should meet the family's needs and abilities. One should consider the activity level, grooming needs, exercise requirements, temperament, and mature size and yes, even the cost to purchase and provide for this puppy.

The Yorkie is considered to be a hypoallergenic breed. His coat is fine and silky with minimal shedding and is comprised of human-like hair which does not contain dander, the actual allergenic substance. This is what people react to and Yorkies have far less of it than most other breeds. Exercise requirements are not great but since he is such a busy little guy he needs a daily activity regime of walking and running which will make him a calmer dog.

Accompanied by colorful illustrations, "Caring For Your New Yorkie Puppy" is a valuable guide for those who want to raise Yorkshire terriers. Readers will learn all about safety, health, origins, hygiene, training and much more. It also includes the history and the nature of the breed.
