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

I have two kids. One loves dogs, the other is afraid of them. My mother offered to buy me a Pomeranian for Christmas. I want my daughter to know that dogs can be friendly. Is a Pomeranian the best choice?

Answer:
Pomeranian's are not the best choice for small children, especially if one of your children is afraid of dogs. Pom's are high active, barky and tend to become attached to one person in the family. Since your child is afraid of dogs, I would suggest getting a lower energy breed, or an adult dog so that the dog is not so unpredictable and scare your child. Breeds that would do well would be the Basset Hound, English Bulldog, and the Beagle. If you are okay with a larger dog, then the Golden Retriever, Labrador, and Rough Collie are all great dogs with children. If you are okay with even bigger dogs, the Newfoundland and the Great Dane are amazing and incredible dogs for children.

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
