Insurance for Pomeranians

The Pomeranian has a soft and thick undercoat that, when combined with its longer harsh outer coat, creates a unique and puffy look. With a wide range of colours ranging from orange to white, cream, and black, these little bundles of fur often have a signature frill around their neck and chest. Grooming Pomeranians is quite simple due to their small size. A few weekly brushing sessions are typically enough to maintain their coat.

Training and exercise

The Pomeranian is a delightful companion that doesn't need extensive exercise. Despite their small stature, Pomeranians possess a lot of energy and thrive on play within the confines of their home or the joy of being a lap dog. Engaging their agile minds through trick training is an excellent way to fulfil their exercise needs. Preventing them from jumping on and off furniture is important as their delicate joints and bones are likely to result in injury.
