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.

If 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.

My 6 month male pom continually barks and growls at people that come into our home, what can we do Our 6 month pom barks and growls at anyone that enters our home,what can I do

Let your Pom meet the people who come in the door

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.

What 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.

is 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.

What is the recommended feeding schedule for a one year old Pomeranian What is the recommended feeding schedule for a one year old Pomeranian, once a day, twice a day or more?
7/22/2013 3:48:35 PM
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.

Are red Pomeranians rare? I rescued a mill 3 yr old she has stolen my heart . Was just wondering if the red Pomeranians are rare she was a puppy mill when they were done with her she was left at a groomers thats how i got her.
7/10/2013 6:55:47 PM
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.
