Your Perky Pomeranian

By: Rosieallan
The frisky Pomeranian, a member of the toy group, makes a loyal, friendly pet. Pomeranians are ideal pets for seniors, singles and city dwellers or anyone living in a small space.

Dogs in the sporting group work at hunting and field trials. These dogs include spaniels, setters, pointers, and retrievers like the American Water Spaniel, the English Setter, the German Wirehaired Pointer, and the Curly-Coated Retriever.

The hound group works by tracking prey, either by scent or by sheer stamina. Scent hounds include the Bloodhound, the Basset Hound and the Beagle. While the Greyhound, Saluki and Whippet can outrun nearly any prey animal over the long haul. The Pomeranian, in contrast to these hard workers, was bred to be a lap dog, a friend and constant companion.

Pomeranians are confident to the point of cockiness, secure in their position as faithful sidekick to the leader of the pack. Your Pomeranian dog will command your attention, so be ready to provide it. These little dogs have giant personalities. They are alert, intelligent, inquisitive and animated.

Your Pomeranian dog wants to be with you all the time, so be prepared to have your dog sit in your lap or at your side while you read a magazine or newspaper or try to watch TV. These little dogs with huge personalities are inquisitive, intelligent, animated and alert.

Pomeranians can sometimes develop extreme attachments to their owners, becoming very protective when they think their master is threatened. This strong-willed protectiveness may lead to excessive barking when the dog becomes suspicious of new people and strangers. Some Pomeranian dogs bark incessantly when a stranger invades their territory, even if the stranger is their owner's welcome guest. Owners must not allow the Pomeranian to get the better of them. Undisciplined dogs may venture into unacceptable behavior like snapping and biting.

Don't let the Pomeranian's behavior issues dissuade you from bringing a Pomeranian dog into your life. Whether you get a Pomeranian puppy or rescue dog, these dogs are worth the time, effort and energy required to properly train and socialize them. Many Pomeranians are not suitable for homes with children because they can be temperamental. However, they are prized for their devotion to the elderly and to older children. They have a sweet disposition as long as they get plenty of care and attention.

The majority of Pomeranians, puppies and adult dogs alike, can be trained and socialized to be loyal, manageable companions. To be sure, your Pomeranian will provide you with endless entertainment and more than enough companionship to ward off loneliness. If you decide to get a puppy, ask your breeder to suggest an obedience trainer. If you are getting an older dog or a rescue Pomeranian, spend some time with the dog to see what its temperament is like, and seek professional training help if you run into obedience issues.
