Psycho Yorkie?! Need training advice ASAP!
My mom gave me her 8 year old Yorkie since she is traveling so much and can no longer care for her. She only knows the commands "sit" and "stay". I am sure since it is a new environment it will take time for her to adjust but I want to know if she ever will.
She begs at our feet when we eat and cook. She tries choking herself out on walks from pulling so hard. I bought a harness and this prevents choking but not pulling. I gave her a Busy Bone, she paced the house for over 2 hours with it in her mouth. I took it away when I noticed she bloodied her nose trying to "bury" it.
How do I get her to calm down on walks and not feel like her bone will be taken so she can actually enjoy it? How do I reverse my mom's lack of training after 8 years of her thinking she is the boss?
