It seems unlikely, but Pomeranians come from an ancient Spitz breed that used to pull heavy sleds and herd cattle.
While breeders downsized the Pomeranian breed because they wanted a small companion dog, Pomeranians still have a big dog personality.
Guide your puppy on how to drink fluids
When you get a new puppy, the first important thing you need to do is guide your puppy on how to drink liquid foods such as milk , toilet. You can help your puppy by giving him milk in a bottle.
As it grows a little, you can start by pouring the milk and water into a bowl. After 3-4 weeks, start with solid food mixed with milk or water, but give it in small portions so they can eat easily.
New Pomeranian Parents Should Change Pomeranian Dog Diet Gradually

Changes in the water that your puppy is drinking can also cause discomfort in a Pomeranian’s tummy, it is recommended to use bottled water for your Pomeranian puppy.
Where and when to exercise your Pomeranian
Walk your Pomeranian on sidewalks or parks, but never on the streets. You want the walk to be an enjoyable experience for both your dog and you. Also choose times of day that don’t require you to rush anywhere. If you can, exercise your Pom when he’s itching to go outside. Some dogs are not morning pets and others can’t wait to get out of the house first thing in the morning.
You will likely have to come to terms with your dog and find a time that works for both of you.
Also, if you have a backyard, you can exercise your dog by playing. Dogs love to please, and your Pomeranian will enjoy playing games like fetch and pull with you. It’s a wonderful way to deepen your bond with your Pom.
Misbehavior: Help, my Pom is chewing all my stuff!
A dog’s mouth is as useful to a dog as a human’s hands are to us. They use their teeth and sense of smell to understand their surroundings. For younger dogs, chewing can help them ease the pain of their growing underground teeth. For older dogs, chewing helps keep their jaws strong and their teeth clean. Or they are just bored and want you to play with them plain and simple. They also chew for fun and stimulation.
So how do we prevent our Lil’ Pom from biting and destroying our chair legs or telephone wiring or worse, his favorite pajamas? First, consider getting an anti-chew spray or paste, which you can slather on things your dog finds «tasty.» Place it on furniture and anything else you think is important. Once the paste is on the object, it makes it less palatable for the dog to chew and discourages him from doing so. If possible, pack away all your valuables and put them in your room. Don’t want to tempt them so easily!
