There is always a reason for barking. It could be boredom, stress, territorial, guarding, play, lack of exercise... If you want to prevent the barking, give your dog a distraction such as a cue to "come" or "sit" for a treat, or play with them directly.

Yorkshire terriers are a single coated breed, meaning their skin does not produce the nature self-cleaning and moisturizing oils that double coated breeds do. This means that they should be bathed regularly. Usually for small breeds, once per week to once every 3 weeks is enough, depending on how long and how dirty their coat gets.

The Doberman breed is a double coated breed. This means that their skin produces natural oils to help keep their coat healthy and relatively clean. Double coated breeds do not ever NEED to be bathed. However, if you wish to get rid of the smell of his natural dander or any dirt in his coat, you should bathe him no more than once every 4 weeks.

Adding a flavor to their water bowl--such as low sodium beef broth--can help encourage dogs to drink more water. Also dogs tend to get thirstier after exercise, so try providing some exercise such as a brisk walk or a game of fetch until your dog is panting, then provide some fresh water.
