Welcome to Poofy Poochies Pomeranian Behavior Page

Each Pom is different because each has his or her own particular personality. This type of dog certainly can not be
categorized by one or two words that carries over across the entire breed. One very interesting trait of the Pomeranian
temperament however, is that once a Pomeranian becomes comfortable with its owner, he will begin to copy the
behavior of its owner.

For example, if a person is very loud and full of energy, so shall their Pomeranian become. If a person tends to be quiet
and shy, they will usually find that their Pomeranian is shy and quiet. Companion analysis: A Pomeranian will always be
a perfect match to their owner. Proper house training, controlling unnecessary barking and biting will ensure a great
match.

Although a Pom is a very small dog, 3 to 7 pounds generally, he doesn't know it and do not try to tell him! This breed
was originally a much larger sled dog and therefore the instinct to protect and guard its owner is still inbred in the
Pomeranian. Even if your Pom is a quiet dog, do expect its behavior to turn up a notch if a stranger comes to the door.
A Pomeranian will bark as if he is a pit bull if he senses a stranger or feels there may be impending danger to its owner.
This dog shows no fear toward anything if he is in "protection mode". This breed shows great loyalty to their human
family members.

A Pom will generally adapt quite well to just about any situation. The type of environment or home that is perfect for a
Pomeranian is which ever home its owner is in. This dog will be happy as a clam in a sprawling farmhouse and just as
content in a small apartment. However, a Pom must be an inside dog. Going for walks and playing around in warm
temperatures will always be fun for him, but he must never be considered an outside dog!

Any owner must be 100% willing and able to keep this dog living in the house as a family member. For jaunts out into
the snow, icy or very cold weather, it is recommended to put clothes on your Pomeranian for protection, both for core
body temperature and to protect the paws.

behavior and temperament however, is that once a Pomeranian becomes comfortable with its owner, he will begin to
copy the behavior of its owner.
