                        About Pomeranians  

        Pomeranians are short and small toy dogs. They have soft dense undercoats with a coarsely textured outer coat. They have heavily plumed tails that lie flat on their backs. They are medium boned and sturdy in appearance, despite their small size.

       Pomeranian should have a head that is in good balance to the rest of the body, with a short, straight muzzle. They have very alert expressions. Their ears are very small and erect and are mounted high on the head. They have a very large ruff around the neck that is a striking part of their overall appearance. Their eyes are dark and almond shaped and very bright and alert. They have a black nose and teeth that meet in a scissors bite. Their necks are short and they carry their heads quite high.

     Pomeranians have a double coat, which is one of its most noticeable features. The undercoat is soft and dense, but the outer coat is long and straight, with a very coarse texture. Their coats are very thick and stand off from the body, making the dog look significantly larger than he really is. The coat on the head and legs is tightly packed and shorter than that on the body. The forequarters and hindquarters are well feathered. 

       Pomeranians are vivacious and extroverted, which creates a great show dog. They have a smooth gait and appear very well balanced. Once trained, they are a standout in the show ring, for they truly enjoy the limelight and love to be watched.

     Pomeranians are extremely intelligent and extroverted. They are very spirited dogs, and do well with spirited owners. They prefer a lot of interaction with their owners, and are often used as companion dogs for single people. They love going everywhere with their humans.

     Pomeranians tend to be very willful and dominant in their personalities, so training very important. They are somewhat cocky, and often will not hesitate to take on a dog that is four or five times their size, as they seem to have no recognition of how small they are. They are independent and curious and are usually happy and alert dogs. They are full of energy and active, but since they are so small, they are not usually a nuisance. They love to do tricks and bond well to their owners, but are not typically overly clingy. 
                                        
    It's very important that your Pomeranian knows that you're the boss. If this fact is not established early on, this breed can become very demanding and possessive of their owners and will refuse to listen to even the simplest commands. It is also important that these dogs are socialized early on to prevent them from being overly suspicious of strangers. Spend plenty of time working on appropriate and inappropriate barking, as Pomeranians are known to be excessive barkers when not properly trained.

     These dogs are very intelligent, and with the proper training, can be taught to do nearly anything they need to do. They love to do tricks and can be quite proficient at them. Pomeranians are very curious and inquisitive. This makes them somewhat easy to train. Find a place where they can be focused, with few distractions.

     Pomeranians are suitable for many types of tasks. With a high energy level, they can be very hard workers.  Pomeranians have been used for search and rescue dogs, particularly in post earthquake searches, where small dogs are needed to locate survivors. They are often used as the therapy dogs for the elderly and ill. They can be trained to be used as companion dogs for the hearing impaired.

     Pomeranians are very hardy. They enjoy outside exercise in the winter. Our poms often lay stretched out on the snow to sun themselves on bright days. They have hair on their feet and are well protected from the winter by their thick coats.

    Pomeranians can be hard to housebreak. Because they are so small, they can sneak off to any little corner and go to the bathroom without you ever knowing it. Don't let them establish a  bad pattern.  Crate training is absolutely necessary. They should not be allowed to roam the house unsupervised until their bodies are mature enough to hold their urine and they are well trained enough to understand the appropriate places to go.

     Pomeranians can do well with other pets in the home, but they should be introduced early.
