The Temperament Of The Pomeranian Breed

Jul 30, 2008
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.

Examples of this group are the Newfoundland and the St. Bernard. The sporting group hunts by pointing, retrieving or setting. Irish Setters, German Shorthaired Pointers and Spaniels all belong to the sporting group. The herding group controls the movement of other animals, like sheep. Collies and Border Collies are members of the herding group.

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.

Surprisingly, Pomeranians are perfectly willing to share the household with other dogs, even another Pomeranian dog. If you have never had a Pomeranian dog before, you may want to consult an obedience trainer with your dog to learn how to correct any problems early on.

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.

If you have problems disciplining your Pomeranian, locate a dog trainer who has experience with the toy breeds. Consult the trainer with your dog present, so you can demonstrate the behavior that is causing problems. A competent trainer will advise you on what steps you can take to identify issues with your Pomeranian and deal with them before they become serious. By spending time training your Pomeranian every day, most behavior problems can be corrected.
