Dog Breeds – Pomeranians

April 10th, 2019

Pomeranians have a bold, lively and curious temperament. They are part of the toy group and can live between 12 to 16 years. Their weight ranges from 3 to 7 pounds with a height of 6 to 7 inches.

One of the most remarkable features of Pomeranians is that they have a heavily plumed tail with a double coat. This implies that they need constantly brushing to keep up their royal appearance. As they are active dogs, it’s important to maintain their nails short. Then, it’s recommended to take your Pom to a specialized groomer every 4 to 6 weeks for a full service that includes bath, brushing the coat, haircut, cleaning the ears and nails. 

The tiny Pomeranians have a lot of charm and they know it! Their smiling foxy face, alertness and vivacious personality makes them one of the most popular toy breeds! They are active dogs, being able to exercise with indoor play and short walks. They are easily trained and their favorite activities is providing laughs and companionship to their owners. They can excel in activities such as agility, obedience and working as therapy dogs. Housebreaking, however, can be a challenge. So, be patient and your cutie will get there!

Owners should pay attention to Pomeranians’ diet, as they are prone to getting overweight. Treats can be a good option to reward them, but too many can cause obesity. Feed your Pom according to his age – puppy, adult or senior.
