My husband and I are thinking about getting a Yorkie for our daughters- ages 9 and 5.5.
They have been begging for one for a year, but until recently, i didn’t feel like they were quite old enough.
I have been in contact with a breeder who will release the puppies at 6-7 wks of age.
She says she starts crate training them early, but my dilemma is that my husband and I will be gone about 9 hrs during the day for work.
I could possibly come home at lunch for the first few weeks to let her out to pee/poop, but I couldn’t do it indefinitely.
It worries me that I will have to crate her for 9hrs a day, but I know there are many, many other dog owners who do it and have done it starting as a pup.
What are your thoughts? And believe me when I say she will get plenty of attention from the time we get home to the time we go to bed!
She won’t be lacking there!
