Pomeranians are one of our most popular breeds.  With early socialization they can be very friendly and easy to groom. They can have a tendency to be shy with strangers so an early introduction to the groomer is highly recommended. They need frequent brushing to help keep the undercoat from getting too matted.  Many of our customers prefer to keep them in short clips or scissored well to make home grooming easier. When they are well groomed, they are certainly one of the handsomest toy dogs that we do.

Keep in mind, dogs of the toy group are not recommended for small children as they may be temperamental—but for older children and adults they are known to be eager to please, gentle and affectionate. Patience is required in housebreaking them and they have a tendency to bark if not properly controlled.
