Pomeranian puppies

The Pomeranian dog breed is a member of both the toy and Spitz groups. This dog breed is considered toy because adult Pomeranians grow to a size of only three to seven pounds and eight to eleven inches tall. (A Pomeranian pup weighs mere ounces!)

The breed is classified as part of the Spitz group because of its lineage. Pomeranians are close relatives of many other breeds like the Chow Chow and Samoyed which all descended from large sledding dogs found around the Baltic Sea, particularly in Iceland and Lapland. In the 1700s and 1800s, it became fashionable to breed specific types of Spitz dogs to be smaller. The Pomeranian, for example, was bred down to its toy size from the much larger German Spitz breed.

The history of the Pomeranian actually begins in Lapland and Finland. Large sledding dogs from these regions were brought to Germany and Poland and bred down to a smaller size. The area of Germany and Poland, once known as Pomerania, is where the Pomeranian breed gets its moniker. Queen Victoria of England continued the downsizing of the breed in the late 1800s. Her beloved Pomeranian, Marco, and her active breeding and showing of Pomeranians, made the breed fashionable as a household pet.

Training should capture the Pomeranian pup's attention. Pomeranians are very intelligent and trainable once owners engage them. Pomeranian puppies have a tendency to bark and get underfoot. These are the first behavioral traits that they should be trained against for the well being of both the owner and puppy.

Pomeranian puppies require both discipline and grooming from day one. Their erratic temperament and tendency to bark requires Pomeranian pups to be trained against this from birth. The delicate size and thick double-coat of fur on each Pomeranian pup requires gentle handling and daily brushing. Every feature of the Pomeranian is tiny except for its personality.

hey have doll-like faces, dark noses and eyes, and small teeth. The breed suffers from dental problems so daily brushing of teeth is also a grooming requirement. Attention should be paid closely to the Pomeranian pup when around small children as it will snap if its tail is pulled or it is held too tightly. Adult Pomeranians grow to be only three to seven pounds and eight to eleven inches tall and they can be hurt easily if tripped over or dropped.

Raising and training a Pomeranian pup can seem daunting at first and buyers should actively ask questions of the breeder they have purchased from. Good breeders are more than happy to provide Pomeranian puppy care tips and have already begun the process of training while each pup resides in their home and/or kennel.

Buyers should be well versed on the breed they have chosen to buy from. Pomeranians have specific needs that are different from other breeds. Buyers should also have researched the breeder they are buying from to make sure they are reputable and that their Pomeranian puppies are healthy and happy.

Dog buyers should never buy from a pet store because there is no guarantee that these puppies have been raised in a positive environment. Good Pomeranian breeders establish a strong foundation of love, socialization, training and discipline for the dog owner to build upon when raising his or her Pomeranian pup.
