Introduction

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. 

Step
1
Get your gear ready
If you decide to bring your dog on a bike ride with you, you need to acquire the necessary gear. With the latest innovations in pet accessories and gear, going for a bicycle ride with your pooch is now a possibility. For a small dog like the Pomchi, a pet stroller is the perfect bike attachment. If you don’t feel like dragging a stroller around on your ride, you may opt to buy a pet backpack or special harness to put your dog on, which you will carry while cycling.
Step
2
Go on your ride
Once your ride is all set up and you are good to go, take your dog out for a spin. Find a safe, bike-friendly area where you can go for a ride. Keep away from high traffic areas that may cause a sense of nervousness in your Pomchi. Be aware of their comfort and remember to take breaks. You can make stops every once in a while so your pooch can admire the new sights.

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. 

Step
1
Search for must-do's
When it comes to going on trips, even if it is just within your hometown, planning is essential. Create a general outline or itinerary of where to go or what sights you would like to see. Also, find out which ones are dog-friendly and if there are any specific rules related to the bringing of pets.
Step
2
Go exploring with your dog
When you have finalized the itinerary for your hometown sightseeing, check out the places you have on the list and tick them off one by one. Take time to “do as the tourists do” and really learn about the site you are seeing. Be sure to bring along water for your pup and be aware of fatigue and dehydration. Enjoy the sights and cap off the day with a trip to the ice cream shop or a nice meal out.

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. 

Step
1
Choose a spa
If you do not have a trusted doggy spa that you usually go to yet, it’s time to pick one. A quick search online or through apps, such as Yelp, will give you a comprehensive list of doggy spas near you. You can also check the choices out for reviews, prices and services offered. Ask around at the dog park too, particularly when you see a pooch that looks especially dapper.
Step
2
Get your dog groomed
After you have made a choice on which doggy spa to go to, take your dog to the spa. Pick out the service/s that you want the spa to do to for your pooch and let them handle everything else. You could even go on a spa treat yourself; some places offer services not only for dogs but also their owners. It's pamper day for both of you!

Drive-in Movie

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. 

Playdate

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.

Conclusion

Owning a Pomchi is one of the best decisions a dog owner can make; this breed is fun, affectionate and truly devoted to their owner. While they can get a bit spirited, Pomchis can become the perfect household pet with the right amount of training and socialization, coupled with enough attention and time together with you.
