The Pomeranian is lively and eager to learn. They get along well with other household pets if given a slow and proper introduction. They make wonderful companions for families with older, well-behaved children and the elderly.
The Pomeranian is a compact, active toy breed. They are intelligent, extremely loyal to their family, and loving. They are eager to please, gentle, and affectionate. They also exhibit an inquisitive expression and curiosity.
The Pomeranian is confident, commanding, and outgoing. Due to the Pomeranians small stature they are not recommended for homes with small children as they may become temperamental. They make excellent guard dogs and will sound a bark when they sense danger.
In addition to grooming it is important for Pomeranians to receive excellent dental care. They are prone to tooth loss; so regular cleaning is a must. Dry food is recommended to aid in keeping teeth and gums healthy.
The Pomeranians long double coat requires brushing at least once weekly. It is important to lift and part the top coat and brush the cottony undercoat as well. This will reduce shedding. Frequent brushing can damage the coat.
Pomeranians respond best to firm commands and are quick to learn. They are easily trained in obedience. Their barking must be controlled or they will do so incessantly. They may be difficult in housebreaking, but with consistency and praise do very well either going outside or in a litter box.
The Pomeranian requires short walks and play time with other pets and family. They have the capability to learn tricks if done with patience and time. They may become bored if they are not given enough to do. They are excellent for apartment living and homes with small yards.
Help reduce the number of Pomeranian puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

AnonymousWhy are Pomeranians so expensive?
5/2/2015 9:21:12 PM
A pure-bred dog of any breed can cost a fair amount of money when the breeder is a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder. What most people do not realize is that the costs of raising a litter of puppies is much, much higher when you have a pure-bred breed. Every breeder will choose their cost of their puppies based on the amount of cost put into the litter, as well as the pedigree of the line and the area they are in. Future puppy owners must understand that the breeder is not just off-setting the costs of food and vet bills once the puppies are born. What to consider is the amount of time and money it cost to raise the sire/dam to their level (ie: championships in confirmation, obedience, tracking, ect), health tests for the dam and sire every time you want to breed (ie: OFA - hips, elbows as well as hearing, hearts and eyes in some breeds); and then the amount of puppies per litter.
5/3/2015 11:54:00 AM
Large breed dogs that have larger litters can cost less as there are more puppies off-set the costs. But in small dogs, there are an average of 1 - 4 puppies and so prices tend to be higher to off-set the costs. Raising a litter of puppies is a 24/7 job and if the breeder has another job, they will have to take time off of work. If you feel a puppy is too expensive, it is best to contact the breeder and ask him/her why their puppies cost that much. They should be able to give you a list of the expenses that they face in raising a litter. A lot of the time breeders will not make any extra money on a litter of puppies, especially if something goes wrong and medical intervention is needed.

AnonymousDo Pomeranians get separation anxiety like barking, destructiveness, and wheeping when left alone too much? A Pomeranian breeder told me I should consider a different breed when inquiring about one of their Pomeranians for sale after I mentioned I work 8 hours a day.
2/4/2015 8:31:49 PM
The Pomeranian breed is a companion breed of dog, they love to be with their owners and desire to be with them. The Pomeranian is a small breed of dog that has a small bladder, and can have issues holding their bladders for that long. But a well socialized and trained puppy should not have separation anxiety. If you have the ability to come back at lunch or have someone to let your dog out in the middle of the day, your dog should do fine.
2/5/2015 12:09:37 AM
I personally would not recommend a pom if you work 8 hours a day. I have had two. One I had until he was 13 years old. I wanted another pom and I see already he is like my first. They know when you are getting ready to leave and it will break your heart. They first bark and then they beg to have you take them with you. They are a high maintenance dog. That's just my opinion and I am home with mine all day and night. .

AnonymousPomeranian My Pomeranian is itching close to her vaginal area, what can I do to get it to stop?
2/1/2015 4:26:01 PM
It is time to see the vet. It can be anything from the dog going into heat, in which case, if she is old enough, it's time to spay her. But it could also be a parasite, dry skin, an allergy, or there could be a medical problem with her urine. But none-the-less, it is best to take your dog to the vet as soon as possible.

AnonymousIf your pom is a little bit constipated what do you do? My 4 month old pom is slightly constipated what do I do?
6/1/2014 1:42:47 PM
If your pom is too loose or is constipated, the best thing you can give him/her is a pit of pureed pumpkin. You can get it at any grocery store. But make sure it says "Pumpkin Puree", not "Pumpkin Pie Filling". You want the basic, just pureed pumpkin with water. No sugar or anything added to it. For the size of your dog, I would say give about a tablespoon into his/her food and wait 24 hours.

AnonymousHow much does a Pomeranian puppy cost? How much will the prices range from for a Pomeranian?
3/27/2014 7:03:05 PM
A Pomeranian puppy's price range will usually be from $400 - $3,000
4/13/2014 10:03:19 PM
On average- from a reputable Pug breeder that breeds ethically and doesn't purposely advertise to breed UNDER the recommended breed standard of 3-7lbs, around $700-$1200 (non champion sired pet quality).
1/10/2015 12:08:15 AM
Be very careful if this is your first experience buying a pom. There are excellent breeders out there and some that aren't want they portray themselves. I had a bad experience and remember you are the buyer. If you go look at the dog at someone's house, the house is a good indication of how the puppy has lived. Take your time and look at several before you make a decision.

i have had 7 poms in my lifetime and understand them. They are barkers and that is something I just accepted. They also are protective and growl at strangers. I let my puppies get use to people and let them be held by adults while I was present. They need to know strangers in your home are not a threat. I never yell at mine. I don't know how you can change a dog that just happens to be from a "barking" breed. If they don't like strangers after conditioning, just put them in a safe place until the stranger leaves. It's like expecting children to stay quiet and not unsure of strangers. Stay calm and the dog will learn people are ok.

Let your Pom meet the people who come in the door
2/5/2014 11:53:55 PM
Is your Pom neutered? He is coming into sexual maturity, and will be dominant if not neutered. A Pom naturally wants to protect his beloved owner. You must, must to be calm-submissive. At only 6 months, this will get worse. Read Ceasar Milan's books. They will give you the tools you need.
1/5/2015 8:57:22 PM
No ! The DOG must be "calm SUBMISSIVE" the PERSON must be "calm assertive"... I watch "The Dog Whisperer" constantly on UTube ;-)

AnonymousWhat are the best colors to breed together with Pomeranians I really like the orange sandy colors poms and also the white colored Pomeranians would they breed good together and make a pretty Pomeranian?
10/17/2013 10:51:16 PM
The color's of the dog do nothing to the puppies. It all depends on the linage of the dam and sire for the coloring.
7/15/2014 5:03:02 PM
It depends on what colors the parents carry for. It's never a good idea to breed two merles together though, as that can cause genetic defects.

Anonymousis a pomsky a real breed of dog? i heard its a mix of pomeranian and husky
10/3/2013 6:23:24 PM
Yes, Pomskys exist but they aren't what people think they are. The cute "pomsky" puppy picture circulating the internet is actually a picture of a Finnish Lapphund puppy. Actual "pomskys" look very different and that big puffy coat doesn't show up often since its a recessive gene. If you are looking for a "mini husky", there is a breed called a Klee Kai.
1/2/2014 4:41:30 PM
No, a pomsky is not a Breed of dog. It's a purposely bred mixed breed.

Since Poms can get low blood sugar they should be free feed.
12/6/2014 1:17:22 PM
As a pom owner and breeder- I also feel they should be free fed (allowed access to food all day to avoid symptoms of hypoglycemia *low blood sugar*). Small breeds burn off energy quicker than larger breeds.

After one of my Poms went into hypoglycemic shock, I free feed without hesitation.

no red (sable) poms are a very common color.
7/28/2014 4:02:38 PM
No red/orange is one of the most recognizable and common coat colors for poms. Red is essentially a very heavy orange. If they have black tips to varying degree they could be orange sable/red sable depending on the saturation of color. I have 1 red and 2 orange- one w/light sable and 1 heavy sable. Horrible that she was a mill dog.

Buy more wee wee pads and start at a place he/she is use to. Then each couple of days move the wee wee pad closer to the back door. (or where ever you have you dog go to the bathroom)Then once the wee wee pad is right in frount of the door you start taking your dog outside.

Anonymousmy pom has a breathing problem she sounds like she snorting alot and can't catch her breath
2/13/2013 7:24:18 PM
Mine does the same thing. When she is excited, she sounds like a goose. It's because they have narrow tracheas. I just calm her down and it subsides. I mentioned it to her vet and I think if it was serious she would have said something.
2/19/2013 10:30:13 PM
Pomeranian's collapse their tracheas very easily after getting very excited or running around. It's a normal thing. Just try to calm the dog down or even try to rub his/her throat.
12/11/2013 5:53:51 PM
All Poms should wear a tiny harness and not a collar. With their delicate trachea, just daily walks on a leash with a collar can cause collapse. Many Vets are unfamiliar with this problem in Poms.

Poms have a heavy undercoat and they do shed. They can be good with kids if raided with them and are treated nice by the kids. They do like to bark when people come to the door. I woudn't call them a super active breed like some of the terriers.

First get a HIGH quality dog food, I give mine NutraSource. Do NOT give in and feed her any table food. She may go even a couple of days but she will eat the dog food.. For a badly spoiled dog, such as yours, when I am fostering a rescue, I pretend it is a treat and offer a kibble of dog food while I am eating. They often gobble it up by the end of the day. Any slipups with the table food and you are back at square one.

In the USA there is one pomeranian breed which is in the AKC toy breed family(no such thing as teacup in poms). The pom was breed down from the larger dog breed, the spitz and these smaller sizes dogs got a new names. spitz, mittelspitz, klienspitz, and zwergspitz(pomeranian). Or some poms carry the spitz genes and when they both give it to a pup it produces a larger than usually pup, which we call a throwback.(Or larger pups can occur from mixed-breed breeding in the pedigree)

Anonymouslose hair do pomeranian pups lose their hair?
12/20/2012 11:17:49 PM
yes they (some) can go through a period referred to as the “puppy uglies” at around say 4-6 months of age when they shed their puppy coat and prepare for their adult coat to grow in. The baby fluff comes out and they tend to look very straggly or shaggy at that point, You may think you got jipped with some other breed or cross breed of dog even, say a longhair Chihuahua instead of your pretty pom pup. That is truly normal so have patience, it usually grows back beautifully, bigger and better than ever in a good quality Pom, so-so in a lesser quality Pomeranian.
Generally, by 10-12 months old (it varies a bit with the season -
coats thicken faster during the winter months) he or she is in a full coat.
