Pomeranian Breed Maintenance
Due to their little size, these dogs can do well in apartments and smaller houses that do not necessarily have fenced in yards. They do require a moderate amount of daily exercise, which can include several walks or play times. The walks can be long but it is important to keep in mind that, due to their small size, these dogs can be sensitive to extreme heat. In these cases, they would most likely appreciate a shorter walk instead. These dogs will love playing with toys, but can get bored easily so rotating the toys would be a good idea in order to keep things exciting. Toys that can challenge them will be even better. They should be fed twice a day, and should get a total amount of ¼-½ cups of food. Twice each week, a wire slicker brush and metal comb should be used to groom your pet. You should ensure that you brush all the way from the skin in order to properly distribute the natural oils and to fully shed the undercoat. To do this, you should start at the head and move down, parting the hair and brushing it forward using the comb. Some people like to trim their Pomeranian’s fur around the ears, face, the hind end and feet, but this is not required. They do not need to be bathed regularly, but can instead have baths as often as you’d like. Dental hygiene and nail trimmings are also important for your Pomeranian. Their teeth should be brushed daily, or once a week in the least. Nails should be cared for as often as needed.
