The Pomeranian: Cute And Adorable

Mar 31, 2008
Pomeranians are very intelligent and also courageous little creatures that live an active lifestyle. They may not be quite so friendly with little children because being quite small and delicate they may be mishandled. In any case, Pomeranians make excellent watchdogs though they often bark a lot unless trained not to. And this breed of dog is also quite difficult to housetrain though they are very smart and will train with lots of time and patience.

Taking good care of your Pomeranian is very important and you may want to take him to the vet for regular checkups. In fact your pet should be given a check up at least once in a year and should be vaccinated on schedule as well. There are no doubts about the importance of grooming your Pomeranian both for keeping it looking good but also for health reasons. For these reasons the Pomeranian puppy cut might be the way to go because it will keep him looking his best all the time and will even ensure that he lives a long, healthy life. You should also pay special attention to cleaning his ears, teeth and nails, which are all important parts of grooming your Pomeranian.

It is important to note that giving your Pomeranian a short puppy cut is not advised for show dogs. Some trimming, to make the coat look even all over, should not deduct any show points per American Kennel Club standards. But a complete puppy cut would be a disqualification. So if your Pomeranian is purely a pet then trim away as much as you want. The more you trim the easier it is to maintain, and the easier it is to limit shedding. If you have more than one Pomeranian pet there will be fewer health problems with the shorter puppy cuts.

Most Pomeranians do need some trimming to show at their best. Straggly, wild hair should be trimmed away. It is recommended that this trimming be done a little at a time, as cutting more is always possible. If you cut too much your Pomeranian may be disqualified right off the bat. Find a good American Kennel Club qualified Pomeranian groomer to show you how to trim your dog correctly.

Giving your pet a Pomeranian puppy cut can be a necessity for some. Busy working singles or physically restricted seniors may have trouble meeting the grooming needs of this sweet little dog. As a mostly indoor pet, the thick long coat might even be to warm for the Pomeranian. Every Pomeranian will have slightly different grooming needs, but will always be cute regardless of the haircut, as long as you meet its attention and discipline requirements.

Pomeranians are known for their long thick coats and also for the extensive grooming needed to maintain good looks and health. Whether cut short or left long, brushing the Pomeranians hair must be done on a regular basis. The hours of brushing the breed can be accomplished while watching television, chatting on the phone or even reading a book because a Pomeranian is satisfied lounging on your lap for hours and hours. This is an activity that both you and your Pomeranian will consider most enjoyable.
