The Pomeranian, also known as the Pom Pom, is a cute and furry toy breed. They may look like quiet and relaxed lap dogs, but you will be surprised. They make great watchdogs and require more stimulation and exercise than people would expect from such a small ball of fluff.
Pomeranians are full of spirit, energy and enjoys lots of entertainment. The bigger the crowd the happier they are. They need action and constantly want to do new things.
They are also very intelligent companions who will not agree with everything you want them to do, especially not being left home alone. Your Pom Pom may literally have a melt down when you leave and he realises that he can't come with you!
Pomeranians expect real interest not just ball throwing at the park. When you engage with them, they want your full attention. Many short walks a day and lots of adventures are a must for this small ball of energy.
They are alert, vivid and faithful companions that love being part of a busy family whose members have the time to play with them. Easy to train and loyal to their owners, they will alert of intruders. But don't expect your Pomeranian to protect you - he would rather avoid confrontation.
