How do I stop my Yorkie from peeing in the house?

Whatever you do, don’t give up on your Yorkie or give your Yorkie away. You should calm down the first time and do not blame your Yorkie strictly! Of course, you might need to get some additional help. In the meantime, be patient with your canine companion and try taking one or more simple steps to stop your Yorkie from peeing in the house.
Re-Train Your Dog:
Because your dog was probably once house trained, it can be helpful to revisit the training and repeat the steps.
Increase Potty Breaks:
Take your dog outside to pee right after drinking, eating, and waking from naps. Reward your dog for peeing outside in the appropriate places.
Identify the Trigger:
Try to figure out if there’s a trigger or stimulus in your dog’s environment that prompts it to pee inside. Eliminate the trigger if possible, teach your dog to live with it, or change any elements you can to calm your dog’s anxiety. For example, avoid sources of fear when taking walks, like the neighborhood’s aggressive dog or the area where jackhammering is going on. Play music or use a white noise machine in the house if there are loud noises outside.
Don’t Hit or Yell:
Avoid punishing or screaming at your dog for urinating in the house. This will likely backfire and instead of learning that urinating in the house is the incorrect behavior, your dog may learn that its people are unpredictable or unsafe to be around. Punishing your dog may make it afraid to urinate in front of you (even outdoors), which could lead to more indoor accidents.
Clean up Properly:
Thoroughly clean up each accident as soon as possible with an enzymatic cleaner that eliminates the smell. You don’t want your dog to recognize the urine smell and think that indoors is an acceptable place for it to urinate after all.
Get Professional Help:
If you’ve tried everything and are still unable to make any headway with your dog’s problem, consider getting a dog trainer or behaviorist involved for a single consultation or frequent sessions as needed.
