If you're about to welcome a Pomerat into your family or you've already brought your new puppy home, you'll no doubt be searching for fun and exciting ways you can entertain your pooch. Pomerats love spending time with their people and thrive when given lots of regular activity and mental stimulation.

Is your Pomerat the cutest dog in the whole wide world? Do you snap photos of every adorable thing your dog does, ending up with a camera roll full of gorgeous shots at the end of each day?

Step
1
Create a profile
Head to your chosen social media platform and create a profile for your furry friend -- this is quick and easy to do from your computer or smartphone. All you'll need to do is enter your pet's bio, upload a profile pic and a few key shots, and then get ready to share your pooch's life with the rest of the world. You can start by adding or following friends and family and maybe following a few celebrity pooches.

2
Update and share
The key to building your dog's social media profile is to be as active as possible. This means posting regular updates and adorable pics of your dog doing whatever they're doing -- eating dinner, going for a walk, lazing on the couch, or whatever else the day holds. This will help your friends and family keep up to date with what your Pomerat is doing, and will also attract interest from other dog lovers around the world. If you're lucky, your pooch might even go viral and become a global star!

Where does your dog spend the night? While there are some dog owners who regularly let their furry friend sleep on their human's bed, this is something many other dog lovers never do -- and that's fair enough.

But if you're looking for a way to spoil your Pomerat and show them just how special they are, inviting them into your room for a doggy sleepover should definitely put a wag in their tail.

Your pooch will love the chance to spend the night as close to you as possible, and snuggling up on a warm and comfy human bed can be the perfect antidote to a cold winter's night.

Step
1
Choose a night
If you've never let your pooch sleep in your bed before, you may be a little uncertain exactly how your doggy sleepover experiment will go. So if your pooch is likely to get up in the middle of the night wanting a game, or is simply something of a restless sleeper, it's probably not best to welcome them onto your bed if you have to get up early for work in the morning.
Step
2
Make them comfortable
Some dogs will need no invitation to climb up onto your bed -- in fact, you might have already spent plenty of time teaching them that it's a no-go zone. Others may need a little more encouragement, so moving their favorite blanket or toy up onto your bed, and rewarding them with a treat and praise when they climb up as well, may help.
Step
3
Get some zzzzs
Now it's time to settle in for the night and snuggle up next to your canine pal. Your dog will love being able to sleep so close to their favorite human, and you might also find that you get a better night's sleep with your furry friend by your side. Of course, you'll want to hope that your dog doesn't snore and keep you awake all night long!

It's a beautiful day outside, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. You're looking for something fun and easy to do with your Pomerat, so what could possibly be better than taking your dog out for a picnic?

This is a simple way for your dog to get plenty of mental stimulation and spend some one-on-one time with you. And if you work in some play time or maybe a walk, your dog can get some exercise as well.

So, what do you need for the perfect pet-friendly picnic? All you need to do is follow a few simple steps.

Step
1
Pick your spot
The first thing you'll need to do is decide where to go. The most obvious requirement is a venue that's dog-friendly, but other than that it's entirely up to you. For example, you may want a sunny or well-shaded picnic spot, you might want somewhere with water views, or you might prefer a spot with a nearby dog park or hiking trails so your furry friend can get some exercise.
Step
2
Pack your lunch
The right food is crucial to a successful picnic, so take some time to think about what you and your dog will chow on during your outing. Make sure there's plenty for both of you to eat and drink, and don't forget to pack your picnic blanket and your pet's leash. Last but not least, throw in a tennis ball or a couple of your dog's favorite toys so you can enjoy a play in the park.
Step
3
Relax and enjoy
Drive to your chosen park, pick a spot in the sun (or in the shade) and spread out your picnic blanket. What you do after that is entirely up to you. You and your pet can sit down and graze on some delicious snacks, play chase or a game of fetch, or maybe just relax and watch the world go by. Whichever approach you choose, your Pomerat will love every second.
