Facts - Overview
Here is an overview of Pomeranian breed information that can help you understand your dog better. Pomeranians, or Poms as they are often lovingly referred to, are small dogs (weighing an average of 5 pounds) that have a much larger personality. They are very active, curious and always on alert. They love to take in their surroundings, and explore. They also love to play. Most often, these adorable pets are looking out on windows or sitting in places where they can view the world around them.
They have dense double coats which will need lots of attention and regular grooming. The Pomeranian dog breed is also known for their love of being the center of attention. In fact, Poms are known to get into mischief just to get as much attention as they can.
Pomeranians are perfect if you have limited living space because of their relatively small size. However, they will enjoy running around in wide open spaces, like most dogs do. Make sure you let him loose once in awhile so he can burn off his excess energy.
There are some who find training Poms difficult because of their charming nature. These adorable dogs also have the tendency to be manipulative and stubborn. But with a gentle but firm hand and consistent training, Poms can turn into well-mannered, socialized and obedient pets. One of the best motivators to get Poms to do almost anything is food. Training sessions should also be kept short, but do not let Poms dictate when to end each session. Remember, they can easily harm or boss anyone around and they know it and will use it whenever they get a chance.
Poms also need to exercise a little bit of independence. Over-sheltering leads to a highly-strung personality. Patience is also a requirement when taking care of the Pomeranian dog breed. While they are great companion dogs, they are also known for their frequent barking. They bark at pretty much anything. It’s their way of getting attention or at recognizing the things around them. They are highly curious dogs, after all.
Facts - Personality
Pomeranians are one of the world’s most adored toy dog breeds. Its small size is fully compensated for by its adorably huge Pomeranian personality. Poms are very curious dogs and love attention. They are alert and take in everything that goes on in their surroundings. No wonder owners would often see them looking out the window and watching the neighborhood. They would also often bark at anything that interests them, which is often.
Pomeranian temperament is best suited for people who can devote a lot of attention and time playing with them. Poms can live in houses of all sizes- from small apartments to spacious rural homes. What they essentially need to keep a good temperament is daily walk to allow them to burn off their excess energy. Running and a few minutes of yard time in a week is also a most welcome activity to keep them happy and well mannered.
These smart dogs also need activities that keep their minds active (and away from mischief). If left on their own, they will likely engage in mischievous behavior. Most owners keep their Poms happy by enrolling them in agility trainings designed to keep the Pom’s body and mind in top shape. It is equally important to let the dog walk when strolling around instead of carrying them in fashionable dog totes. This is good for them to learn socialization.
While Poms relatively live well with children, toddlers and smaller children are not advised to be with this breed. Poms have a tendency to be possessive of food and toys. They also demand attention and easily become jealous of small children that compete with their’ owner’s focus.
Facts - Care
Knowing the proper Pomeranian care is a must in order to raise your puppy in the best way possible. Pomeranian training is something that a lot of owners find a bit difficult. This dog breed can be a bit stubborn and bossy at times. If they can’t get away with bossy behavior, they use their charm. However, proper training is very important in order to have a well-mannered, happy and healthy Pom. With the proper motivation and knowledge, Poms can be trained and be a socialized, well-mannered dog.
One of the most important things to do in Pomeranian puppy care is early socialization. Pomeranians are inherently standoffish when it comes to strangers. This standoffishness can easily turn into fear or aggression. Through more social interactions, Pomeranian puppies can be taught that new people, animals and situations are exciting.
Agility courses are also ideal for Pomeranians, once you have established your leadership and they have learned basic obedience. These courses cater to the Pom’s inclination of engaging in activities where they can use their brains to good use. This is also a good bonding time that Poms would really love.
Pomeranians can get really stubborn and would at times refuse to budge or do as they are told. Sometimes, it would also be difficult to get them to do something. Offering food as rewards and motivators are great ways to motivate these dogs during training sessions. Keep sessions short without waiting for your dog to show he is no longer interested or already tired.
Facts - Grooming
Pomeranians are small toy dogs that are very fluffy. Their undercoat is soft and thick while the top coat is rough, long and straight. Longer hair strands line the neck area, forming the ruff. The Pomeranian’s tail is plumed, with the hair lying flat that fans out over the back. This tail characteristic becomes evident as the puppy grows older.
Because of their long hair, it is very important to learn how to groom Pomeranian dogs. They are moderate shedders, with males shedding the undercoats once every year. Females (unspayed) shed undercoats when in season, under stress or after giving birth. Pomeranian grooming needs include brushing the coats at least twice weekly. This helps prevent tangles and remove any loose hair. Brushing also helps release and distribute the hair and skin’s natural oils. These help in keeping the coats healthy and shiny.
Trimming the hair is also part of good grooming practices when taking care of Pomeranians. To maintain a neat appearance, trim the hair over the rear area. Also trim hair around the ears, face and feet. Trimming can be done on a weekly or monthly basis. Some dogs would require less frequent trimming, depending on how active they are.
Brushing their teeth is also very important, especially that most Pomeranians develop dental problems later in life. Brushing once a week is the minimum, but daily brushing is recommended to prevent tooth loss when the dog grows older.
Ears should be checked regularly too, as part of grooming. Check at least once a week. Look for any signs of irritation or infection. Have the dog treated immediately should there be any. Also, check the inside of the ears for wax buildup. Remove when wax starts to accumulate using a cleanser approved by a veterinarian and a clean cotton ball. Remember never to insert a cotton swab inside the ear canal of your dog.
Nails should be trimmed on a monthly basis. You will know it is time for nail trimming when you hear their paws clicking on a hard surface. The nails are already too long at this point.
Facts - Health
Nutrition is an essential in any dog’s life. Pomeranian nutrition requires a proper, balanced diet to live healthy and prevent disease. Pomeranians generally live long but can be affected by diseases and some health problems, like most toy dog breeds. A relatively common problem is collapsing trachea (weakened tracheal walls), dental problems, and hip and leg disorders. Catching these problems early and getting immediate treatment increases the chances of a full and speedy recovery. For instance, Pomeranians would sometimes have their kneecaps slipping out of place (luxating patella). One you notice your dog hopping or limping when running, take him to the vet immediately. Also, get your dog regular knee examinations to make sure things are well.
Pomeranian health problems also include their coat. A few conditions can cause these dogs to lose their coats such as abnormalities with their growth hormones and thyroid disorders. Hair loss can affect their entire bodies. Once you notice shedding more than usual or see small bald spots, get your Pomeranian to the vet for treatment immediately. Also, proper and regular hair grooming helps to prevent these problems from occurring.
Eye disorders may also affect Pomeranians. Tear duct problems, cataracts and progressive retinal atrophy are some eye conditions that can affect this breed. Regular vet check up should also include eye examinations to catch any of these diseases early.
Facts - History
Pomeranians come from a line of sled spitz-type dogs in Iceland and Lapland. This breed was relatively lesser known until 1870. The name originated from a region in Northern Europe, Pomerania, which was located on the coast of the Baltic Sea.
In Pomeranian history, a few well-known historical figures had them as pets. Queen Victoria of England had a favorite dog named Turi, a Pomeranian. This Pom was so loved by the Queen that they were together until the Queen died in 1901. Other lovers of the breed included Emile Zola, Marie Antoinette and Amadeus Mozart.
Pomeranians were originally large dogs, which made them perfect sled dogs and sheep herders. It was because of Queen Victoria’s preference to small Poms, which sparked the worldwide demand for this type, that prompted breeders to develop the small size they are today.
The history of Pomeranian breed officially dates back to its recognition as a separate breed in 1870, when it was recognized by The Kennel Club in England. In America, the breed was first shown in 1888, classified under the Miscellaneous Class of the American Kennel Club. Full registration as part of the Toy group was in 1900. Pomeranians had their 1st specialty show by the American Pomeranian Club in 1911. Pomeranians today are excelling in various disciplines, such as agility and obedience. They also exhibit exemplary skills in conformation show rings.
