Yorkie breeder spoils her babies with song and a tiny house - Yorkies of Austin Jacqueline Harrington

Austin, Texas Feb 25, 2022 ( - Critically acclaimed professional-exotic Dog Breeder, and "Once in a lifetime " Recording Artist Jackie Harrington is toting her own podcast show on Spotify and Anchor entitled  "My Breeders Life Music and Me". 

Dog breeders get a really bad rap and Jackie is here to set the story straight letting you know dog breeders love their animals willing even to take them back if there is an issue with the home they were placed in. 

How did you begin your dog breeding journey?

Initially, my son bred American bullies, but  I wanted to have an input in his entrepreneurial journey so I had a business plan to show him what he needed to do to be a good business owner. With the business plan done, I found him a Yorkie, and with confidence, I thought he would take the idea and run with it, but he refused and stated he wanted to continue breeding  American bullies. By that time I had bonded with the dog and a while later I got him a girlfriend and the rest is history. 

Did he become more to you than just a dog? 

I started taking him everywhere and he became my emotional support dog. He did so much for me, even though he was for someone else, it happened and I didn't even realize until a year later. I had been on pain medication, but I didn't go to the doctor as much as I used to. It wasn't planned, it wasn't premeditated, it was just the fact of having him there, taking him everywhere, having him by my side, and unconditional love and everything. The breeding came later on. Four years in I still have my issues, but my health is much better. It's definitely a testimony as to how I got started and how I ended up here. 

What do you do as a breeder that is different than the breeders we hear about on the news?

From the moment I started I said it's not what you do is how you do it,  and I'm going to be the best breeder. So while these babies were growing up I was educating myself, I got my breeders license, which you don't have to have but  I wanted to be regulated. I wanted to know the different rules and regulations, having licensed people come and tell me what I needed to do to be different and to be held to higher standards. I wanted to be held to a higher standard because I know about the horror stories that we hear about puppy mills and the negativity surrounding the ill-treatment of these precious animals. What makes me different, and what sets me apart? I went for the gusto, not the money, but I went for "how can I provide the service? How can I make people comfortable? How can I get them to believe in what I'm doing?"I lead by example,  having a breeders license, having a tiny house for the dogs which I built myself, and we're on YouTube. First, I care about the well-being of these dogs to the point where we do almost anything to keep them alive, safe, and healthy. I stay in contact with my clients and if there's a problem, even after they are placed,  they know they can call me. My clients send me videos of the dogs, they send me photos of birthdays, dogs on motorcycles, and most of my clients are going to spoil these little bitty dogs.
