Country of Origin, History of the breed
This breed of dog belongs to the
Spitz family, which hailed from the Prussian province
of Pomerania. Because of their herding instinct they
were widely used as shepherd dogs. The breed was owned
by eminent royal families across Europe and was popularized
in England by Queen Victoria herself in the 18th century
when she first opened a Kennel club to breed her Pomeranian.
Later these dogs were bred down in size and became
popular as Show dogs.

Temperament of the Dog
Bold, fiery and courageous, Pomeranians
are also an active breed. These little dogs are intelligent
creatures that are always ready to learn. Moreover, they
are extremely devoted to their owners. They are not friendly
towards strangers and are given to unabated barking. They
are alert and hence, owners can use them as watchdogs if
they train them properly. These dogs are demanding and bossy
and owners should always try to exercise control over them.
They even become snappy in their old age.
Controlling unabated barking through consistent
training is a necessity. Pomeranians love company and hence
it is advisable for the owners to provide them with another
They are friendly with other dogs and
pets in the household. However, they might intimidate larger
dogs in their locale if they feel threatened for some reason.
These dogs are usually good with children
but Pomeranians are often mistaken for toys and children
might even end up harming them. Teasing makes them snappy.
Better suited to an indoor or outdoor
They are highly active indoors and hence
they are suitable for the apartment lifestyle. Households
without yards can also have these dogs.
Are they suited to homes with kids?
These dogs are good with older children
and are also good companions for the elderly. Teasing often
makes them snappy.
How to take
care of the Pomeranian Puppies?
Pomeranians puppies need lots of
care especially at this stage since their immune system
is not fully developed. They should be fed high quality
food, devoid of preservatives, vaccination and de-
worming being a must. Owners should provide them with
spacious crates and chewable toys or restrict their
movement with baby gates. Harmful chemicals and electrical
chords should be kept out of reach.
Spicy food should never be fed to Poms
since these can make them really sick. They should be fed
pieces of liver and dry canned food which would be good
for their health. Giving them chew sticks can make their
teeth stronger. Moreover, Pom puppies are susceptible to
hypoglycemia and often require doses of nutri-cal to maintain
proper sugar levels.
It is not very difficult to train these
dogs since they are intelligent and hence highly trainable.
But they dogs are moody and owners should deal with them
firmly to train them and to inhibit their excessive barking
habits. Moreover, certain basic commands like: come, wait,
heel, no, stop should be taught through consistent training.
Owners should always take their Poms out on walks after
each meal and after every nap. This will prevent any messing
around in the house. These dogs need socialization.
They do not require much exercise but
enjoy long regular walks. They love playing and are extremely
Pomeranians should be taken out on walks.
However over exercising them might cause hypoglycemia in
the old age.
The dog should be brushed every two to
three days with a rolling comb and a small sticker brush
behind the ears. Their coat should be trimmed and their
nails should be clipped at least once a month, aside from
regular teeth care. They have a tendency to shed. Owners
should never use harsh shampoo because harmful chemicals
might harm their coat. Their anal glands should also be
Cautions about Breeding the Dog
The breed suffers from the following genetic
diseases entropion, globoid cell leukodystrophy (very rare),
growth hormone-responsive and adrenal sex-hormone dermatoses,
hydrocephalus, patellar luxation, sick sinus syndrome, tracheal
collapse, cyclic hematopoiesis, hypothyroidism, intervertebral
disk disease, methemoglobinemia, progressive retinal atrophy,
Inexperienced breeders should never breed
their dogs since the chances of losing both the mother and
the litter are very high. Owners who intend to breed their
dogs should always do thorough research before starting
off. Toy breeds like Poms develop lots of complications
while whelping. Litters with genetic disorders are tragic
consequences of ignorance on the part of owners and so a
prior genetic test should be conducted.
