Character
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.

Does your Pomeranian bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
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.
Care
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
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.
Training
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Pomeranian puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Pomeranian Questions

My Teddy Bear Pomperian eyes water all the time. Why and can I do anything to stop staining under the eyes?

Answer:
Unfortunately, the way the Pomeranian is bred now-a-days a large portion of the breeds eyes water most of the time. There is nothing you can do to prevent the watering. However, there are tear staining products that can get rid of the stains. These can be purchased at a vet, online or at a pet store. The best one I have ever used is called "Angel Eyes".

How long can Pomeranian's live?

Answer:
The average life span of the Pomeranian breed is between 12 - 16 years. Life span will all depend on the quality of breeding, how the puppy and dog is taken care of throughout its life as per the food the puppy/dog is fed, regular vet visits, and the regularity of exercise.

We lost a Pom in May. He was a great companion. We are retired so cost is important to us. What is an approximate cost of a puppy?

Answer:
The average cost of a Pomeranian will all depend on where the breeder lives, the linage of the dam and sire and if the pup is sold with breeding rights or has to be spayed/neutered. The average cost could be anywhere from $450.00 - $1700.00.

Answer:
We bought our first Pom 15 yrs ago. We recently lost her and we are devastated. We paid $350 for her. She was beautiful. I do not understand why they are so expensive. I would think that a responsible breeder would want their puppies to go home with loving people to safe environments. Just saying.,.

Answer:
I agree with you. I just lost Chewy, he passed away on May 17th. I can barely handle this! I got Chewy by driving by a house. This man was sitting on his porch looking depressed. I stopped and began speaking to him. There was 2 puppies, his wife left and took all the money, the car, and the mother pomeranian. She has papers. This woman left him with 3 young children and no way out for this man. He gave me the 2pups, I in turn gave money and put money at the grocery store. Now that's unconditional love

How do you know if a place is a puppy mill breeding unhealthy Pomeranians?

Answer:
Most puppy mills are easy to spot, but some have their tricks. A puppy mill will always have puppies available and will advertise this or tell you this if you mention you may not be able to get one now. A puppy mill puppy will sometimes not come with shots at all, or even medication for Gerardia or worms. If a puppy is needing medication when you take him/her home, then that is a red flag. Puppy mills also do not do anything with their dogs. Responsible, reputable and qualified breeders work with their dogs. Pomeranian breeder's can do confirmation shows with their dogs, obedience work and agility. A breeder should want to show off their dogs. A good breeder will let you look at the dam and sire if on sight and where the puppies live/grow up. Trust your gut on this one. Health records of the dam, sire, puppy and littermates should be willingly given to you without a problem so you know the dogs are healthy. A health guarantee should be in the contract you sign that states that the puppy is healthy before leaving the breeder and that the breeder will pay for any problems with the puppy health wise if your vet finds anything when you bring him/her to a vet. There should be no terms as to which vet you choose to go too, and when you go and see the puppies, you should be able to see all of them, not just the one you are interested in.

Answer:
This is so true "Anonymous". I am a long time Pomeranian Hobby Breeder and always encourage my customer's to contact me day or night with any questions or concerns they may have... I also make myself available as much as they need to ask any questions prior to a purchase. I had over 100 conversations with a customer of a puppy recently re-homed prior to her even seeing her in person, and I was happy to engage in each conversation with her. I tell everyone who inquires "I want them to feel 110% comfortable with the choice they are making even if they end up purchasing from another reputable breeder". I will also refer potential customers to reputable breeders if I do not have available what they are looking for or add them to a waiting list if they choose to do so. I also encourage EVERYONE to do their homework as to where they purchase ANY Puppy/Adult no matter the breed and whether they purchase from me or not. Anyone looking to purchase a pup has the right to view the parents, Both Parents, they also have the right to view if not have a copy of the pups pedigree (depends on if they are purchasing a papered pet or not), to include that of its parents (always review the colors of the parents make sure they match on the pedigrees to ensure they are not "fake" as these are easy to make yourself on a computer, and people who fake these documents don't usually take the time to make sure they are accurate and they make mistakes, like spelling errors). Never do I breed for Quantity but ALWAYS for Quality, as I want to ensure each and every puppy produced here at centerfoldpomeranians.com is a Compliment to it's breed. Each breeding requires a thorough inspection of each adults pedigree generations back comparing colors, and quality of each to ensure the best pups with each breeding. Especially when dealing with the exotic colors. Can't just breed any female Pom to any Male Pom, as it should be with any breed. Also, beware if a "breeder" has several different breeds they are offering puppies of the chances are they are a Puppy Mill... Also, NO PUPPY SHOULD LEAVE A BREEDERS HOME PRIOR TO 8 WKS OF AGE, for smaller breeds and smaller pups THEY SHOULD REMAIN WITH THE BREEDER UNTIL 10 - 12 WKS OF AGE. In some cases, EVEN UNTIL THEY ARE 16 WKS IF NECESSARY. All Pups should have by 8 weeks at least their 1 st set of shots, been through a de-worming cycle and vet checked within 3 days of being purchased & come with a Health Guarantee. A Reputable Breeder Stands behind what they produce.
