Many people say you should only wash your dog every couple of months but I feel that is not enough. Yorkie poos have longer hair and it sometimes its curly like my dogs, stuff will get stuck in her hair which means she needs to be bathed more often. You also need to keep your dog groomed by getting their hair cut every couple of months. Especially because the hair gets in their hair and if it gets to long they can not see. Your dog groomer will cut it long enough so they will be warm enough in the winter and cool enough in the summer. You should also brush your dog every few days, mostly around the times when they need a hair cut because their hair can get knotty very quick.
Training Yorkie poo's is pretty easy but they sure love to bark. My dog will bark at just about anything that moves. She is getting older and I do not know if it is because she is getting older where she does what she wants more often now, but I notice her barking more. When training this type of dog you have to let them know right off the bat you are the alpha male/female, and they must listen to you. Along with other dogs you have to keep up with the work of teaching them what to do and what not to do. Keep the same tone, and eye contact with them so they do not get scared or get the wrong idea.

Yorkie Poo Conclusion
I love my yorkie poo, she does do things now that she is older to irritate me but I love her and would not give her up for anything. My opinion is I would not leave young children alone with these or any other types of little dogs just because they are territorial and do not like children in their faces which is what tends to happen. These are good family dogs because one they live longer lives then bigger dogs, and two they are very good dogs to cuddle with.
