I have been a small, in-home Yorkie breeder for 15 years having raised close to 25 puppies to adulthood and through their senior years in that time. I have delivered nearly 100 Yorkie pups in that time myself and assisted others in delivering their own Yorkie pups and raised them following all AKC guidelines.

Learners will want to materials necessary to take notes.
