A hybrid of two of the most popular dog breeds, the Pomeranian and Chihuahua, the Pomchi is a designer dog specifically created to become a companion dog. When developing this mixed breed, you never know what the outcome will be. Generally, however, Pomchis adopt a good amount of the characteristics of both breeds, particularly the Pomeranian’s sassiness and the Chihuahua’s feisty spirit. But behind all that cheekiness, the Pomchi is a really lovely breed that can surely win the hearts of dog lovers. If you happen to own this little fellow, be prepared to try lively and fun activities together.
Bred from two companion-type dog breeds, it should come as no surprise that your beloved Pomchi will warrant a lot of attention from you. After all, this designer dog breed was specifically meant to serve as an overall friend and companion. In fact, Pomchis can become quite clingy with their owners. A good way to enjoy some time outdoors without leaving your pooch with separation anxiety is to bring your dog for a bicycle ride. The Pomchi is a small dog and can be carried around easily and conveniently. Going cycling together is a great way to expose your pooch to new sights and an unfamiliar environment while also forming an even more solid bond.
More often than not, being a local in a certain town or city, you opt to go to other cities, places or states when you have days off or you are on holidays. But when was the last time that you ever became a tourist in your own hometown? If you cannot remember the answer, then it’s probably time to change that. Each place has a unique set of things to do and attractions to see and you’ll never know what spots you are missing out on. The best part? Your dog can become your adventure buddy as you go and explore your own turf.
Every dog needs to be groomed and kept neat on a regular basis. However, the amount of grooming and maintenance needed usually varies from one breed to another. For Pomchis, it is no secret that they will require a bit more maintenance and grooming than the usual dogs, particularly if they adopt the thick double coat that comes from their Pomeranian side. But regardless of which parent ends up being more dominant (the thick-coated Pom or the single-coated Chihuahua), the Pomchi will still be shedding quite a lot and should be kept groomed. So why not spoil your little one with a trip to the doggy spa? Not only do you save time and effort by letting the professional groomers do all the dirty work, your dog will also appreciate some rest and relaxation.
Outdoor movies are a popular activity for dogs and owners, especially during the summer. For a minimal fee, you get to enjoy some classic movies while on a picnic with your pooch. Some businesses and communities even offer viewings for free. Just make sure that you can keep your pooch calm and quiet throughout the film.
In the world of dogs, the Pomchi is considered a social butterfly. Additionally, socialization helps a lot in improving your dog’s overall behavior. Set up a play date where your dog can get the chance to meet and play with fellow canines.
