Pomeranian Grooming and Breed Care

Pomeranian Temperament

The Pomeranian is a small dog with an outgoing personality and plenty of character. These dogs are alert, energetic, and have lots of spirit. The Pomeranian is an intelligent dog and a quick learner, which makes training easy. The Pomeranian is a loving and affectionate breed, who thrives on the companionship and affections of his owners. He is well suited to those with little or no experience of dog ownership, as well as the more experienced. It is important to be confident and assertive with these dogs, as some can be bossy and a little big headed. However, they are also very amiable and friendly, making them ideal family pets. The Pomeranian will bark to raise the alarm if anything is amiss, and this makes him effective as a watchdog. He is a little on the small size to really have any impact as a guard dog, although his size may not deter him from giving chase to larger animals if necessary.

  

Bright and inquisitive, the Pomeranian enjoys playing with other animals. Their inquisitive streak means that they should have a safe, fenced area in which to play so that they do not escape. The Pomeranian's reaction to strangers can vary depending on the personality of the dog, and whereas some will be friendly and welcoming others may be standoffish. When it comes to children these dogs should not be considered for a home with younger, boisterous kids. He is a fragile and dainty creature, and should be around only gentle, older children for his own safety. Entertaining, plucky, and fun to be around, the Pomeranian can make a great pet for families with older children, as well as a great companion dog for those looking for a loving and very cute friend. These are dogs that enjoy being pampered as much as they love to play.

Pomeranian Appearance

The Pomeranian is a very cute, pretty, and dainty creature with a fragile build. He always has a bright, inquisitive expression, and looks alert and eager pretty much all of the time. He has a long, straight coat that is harsh in texture, and a dense, fluffy undercoat. The coloring of the coat can vary, and some of the colors include parti-color, cream and sable, cream, blue, red, orange, sable, and brindle. The height of the Pomeranian is around 7 inches, and he weighs in at 3-7 pounds.

Pomeranian Grooming

When it comes to grooming the coat of the Pomeranian requires brushing around twice a week, although this will need to be stepped up at times that he is shedding more heavily. You may also need to occasionally trim his coat. The Pomeranian is a medium shedder, and sheds more heavily during the spring and autumn months, so he is not ideal for allergy sufferers.

Pomeranian Health Problems and Life Expectancy

There are a number of health problems that are associated with this breed, and this includes: cataracts, PRA, low blood sugar, entropion, luxating patella, PDA, collapsing trachea, and allergies. The parents of the Pomeranian puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates. The life expectancy of these dogs is around 12-16 years.

Pomeranian History

The Pomeranian originates from Germany, and has a history that dates back to around the eighteenth century. Introduced in Britain in the nineteenth century, this breed used to be significantly larger, but its size was reduced through selective breeding.
