The Pomeranian, also called the ‘Pom’, is a famous Spitz dog named after the Pomerania region in Europe. Their cute size, sturdiness and lively nature make them one of the most popular dogs in the United States and Britain. Discover more about our Pomeranian puppies below!

Breed History

The first Pomeranian breeds were huge working dogs found mainly in the Arctic region. They were known as the Wolfspitz. In the year 1767, members of Britain’s Royal Family brought the breed to England and influenced its evolution. 

Queen Victoria’s preference for smaller Pomeranians encouraged dog breeders to focus on breeding small Pomeranians. Over time, the Pomeranian became the smallest dog in the Spitz family. During the Victorian era, the size of Pomeranians was decreased by half. Ever since Queen Victoria’s exhibition of her small Pom ‘Marco’, they have become very popular. 

Temperament

Pomeranians are very extroverted dogs that enjoy meeting new people and new animals. Though they are small, they have big personalities. They refuse to be intimidated and can sometimes challenge bigger dogs. Pomeranians are very curious and alert. 

They bark at the sight of anything suspicious. The temperament of the Pomeranian has a lot to do with their training. Some Pomeranians are calm, playful and curious while others are loud and aggressive. 

To manage a Pomeranian’s temperament, it is important to socialize them from an early age. Expose them to new people, animals, experiences, and sounds. They also get bored easily and love to play.

Environment 

Because of their small size, Pomeranians are best kept inside a home. They love playing and being active so being around people is essential for them. The best home for a Pomeranian is one with children from the age of 12. 

This way the children can learn to handle the dog with care. Because of their small size, younger children might attempt to treat them like toys. A Pom can easily be injured if it is stepped on or dropped. Pomeranians also loved running around indoors so you don’t need a yard to own one.

Exercise

Pomeranians require a moderate level of exercise. Short daily walks and playtime is all they need to keep fit. They are active dogs that can enjoy taking long walks but shorter walks are better because they are highly sensitive to heat. 

Pomeranians can be kept fit during tricks training. Because they love being active and learning new things, this form of exercise will be welcomed by them. It also boosts their mental health and forms a bond between dog and owner. 

Grooming 

Pomeranians shed moderately. The males shed their undercoats yearly while the females shed after delivering puppies, when they are stressed or when in season. Pomeranians should be brushed properly at least twice a week with a metal comb. 

They can be bathed as frequently as possible – either daily or monthly. Pomeranians can easily suffer from dental issues so it is important to brush their teeth frequently with a soft brush and dog toothpaste. Also, trim their nails to prevent getting your skin scratched during playtime.
