If you want to have a Pomeranian as a pet, it is important to train it to avoid problems as it grows; keep in mind that Poms can be stubborn and overbearing with a “big dog attitude in a toy dog body” demeanor. This behavior could also be the reason why they are quite possessive and aggressive if need be. But don’t worry about the aggressiveness displayed by your Pomeranian, as this can be tamed. There are certain things to look out for with a Pom’s aggression that may help you resolve it. You should be able to answer a few questions before determining how to deal with your Pom’s aggression.
- How aggressive are the displays?
- What actions are performed by the Pom in its aggressive state?
- How often do these views occur?
- Does Pom have any health problems?
- Was it trained by you or by a professional trainer? Is there any need to involve a coach?
- Did you know that famous Pomeranian landlords in times gone by included Mozart, Marie Antoinette and Queen Victoria!
- Modern pompom lovers include P Diddy, Samantha Mumba, Sandra Bullock, Sly Stallone and several Hiltons.
- The Pomeranian is also classified by many as a teddy bear dog!
People sometimes refer to the Pomeranian as a little lion. They have a pointed face and a small, very furry body. Its head is pointed and almost fox-shaped. They have a narrow muzzle and erect ears. Its tail is high and hangs back, leaving the body. A long stretch of fur covers it.
Pomeranian Health Problems
Although Pomeranians are reasonably healthy dogs, they are prone to a number of health problems. Many of these issues are very expensive to treat, especially if your Pom needs long-term medication or surgery.
The Pomeranian breed is prone to problems with teeth.
A Pom’s jaw is quite small and the teeth are densely packed, which can lead to plaque buildup. This further leads to numerous dental problems such as periodontal disease or gingivitis. Daily tooth brushing is essential if you want your Pom to avoid this type of problem.
Are Pomeranians aggressive?
Despite their small stature, Pomeranians are a dog breed that positively oozes fearlessness and spirit. In fact, looking at them, you would imagine them as quiet and meek dogs, but in reality, they have a bark that far exceeds their size, that’s for sure! However, if you find that your beloved Pomeranian is growling at you or occasionally biting you, it’s entirely natural to wonder if he’s aggressive.
According to experts, Pomeranians were bred as companion dogs; therefore, their natural protective and combative instincts are relatively low. Although Pomeranians are often suspicious of those they don’t know and undoubtedly other dogs, Pomeranians rarely display overtly aggressive behavior.
Are Pomeranians aggressive?
Not really, but it sure looks like it! They have a classic case of the big dog trapped in a tiny body. They are arrogant and commanding and rarely give up on anything. Its resounding warning bark can be heard far and wide. It’s a good idea to start obedience training early and teach your Pomeranian to bark a few times as a warning, then be quiet.
The Pomeranian is a compact and active toy dog with a double coat. a soft, thick, abundant undercoat and a profuse, coarser textured outer coat. I absolutely love their fluffy coat and feathered tail that sways back and forth when they’re excited. Their inquisitive nature and cocky gait make them really fun dogs.
