Yorkie with sore neck

My Yorkie appears to have a sore neck - we have been to the vet twice about it and of course he doesn't show any symtoms while there - is there anything I can do for a dog with a sore neck??

Did you have an x-ray done while at the vet? Do you walk him on a neck collar or harness - the small trachia (sp?) bones can be easily bruised / broken from a collar, particularily if he's a puller? What is he doing that leads you to believe that he has a sore neck?

Yes, we had an xray done - it showed nothing - he walks on a harness - but does jump off chairs etc. It seems sore for a few minutes after he gets up and then seems to lessen??
