I have a yorkie pure breed my dog is 1 year old but

Customer Question

Hello, I have a yorkie pure breed my dog is 1 year old but since I had him I notice he real jumpy and too alert to the point he jump for any little noise he hear. It scares me because when I enter my house or anyone else he jumps and move around so fast he leap and cry sometimes twinkle but one day he jumped so high he landed on the floor so hard that he started weeping out loud.Can I please have advice. P.S I did consult a vet I was just told "Oh pay it no mind yorkies are hyper " .

Hello. Thanks for the question. This is something that is best addressed with a good trainer or a veterinary behaviorist. They will work with him to de-stress him and de-sensitize him to noises. It takes time, but it can be done. There is no quick fix for something like this. Here is a link to find a behaviorist near you: And here's a nice link on dealing with certain phobias: I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
