FIGHTING YORKIES
I have two Yorkies (2 1/2 and 1 1/2). They are half sisters. They have always been great friends, and I've had no issues, until last night that is !! Gabi, the older one, has decided that she no longer likes her sister, and is seriously climbing into her. This came out of the blue, at bedtime.

We have just been away for 4 days, and had to put them in the kennels. Do you think this may have had an impact on her behaviour?

What can I do to stop this fighting.

I know that Yorkies can be quite tempremental, but not having had a problem before, I want to discourage this behaviour ASAP.

Yes the time away will probably be the cause. Not only were they apart from you but also in strange surroundings. It will be advisable to install a DAP vapouriser in the home where they spend most of their time. Have they been neutered? Hoe close are their beds to each other?
