How to Groom a Pomeranian

Updated on October 20, 2016

Grooming Your Pomeranian

I have three beautiful Pomeranians. I remember the day I fell in love with my sweet Daphne. I had 3 other dogs already at home when I brought home my first Pomeranian puppy. She required special care that none of my other dogs really required. All dogs need grooming and care, but Pomeranians need a little more grooming, and A little more often. I was very fortunate to be given a few tips for taking care of my pomeranian before I brought her home, but I have also learned a lot while caring for all of my Pomeranians over time. Pomeranians are an amazing breed, they have alot of personality in that little package, and alot of hair in that beautiful coat. If you are considering getting a Pomeranian, please make sure you check out my other pages, you will learn a lot! For this article we are just going to talk about basic grooming.

The perfect grooming brush

Best Tips for Grooming a Pomeranian

Start from day one. Groom your Pomeranian every day in some way. Your pomeranian will need their eyes washed every day. If you do this they will not have the goopy dirty eye look. Cleaning their eyes is easy and they will appreciate it, as long as you start early and do it often. You will want to use a clean washcloth or paper towel. Just moisten your towel with warm water. Wipe the eye area, starting from the inside and working your way out. Repeat this step a few times with a clean section of your towel. Your pomeranian will also need to be groomed often just to establish the habit. My dogs actually enjoy this time, especially the cookie afterward! Most poms will need to be brushed at least every other day. You will need to use a pin brush like the one above. Start from the bottom and brush upwards, this allows you to expose the many layers. When you are done, just style as desired.

Bathing and nail trimming for your pomeranian

Bathing your dog is a really on an as needed basis. My pomeranians have a fenced in yard, so they need bathing often. They love to dig and get into trouble. Nail trimming will also depend on environment, but again start early and often. I hope these tips really help to keep your pom happy and healthy.

please check out my youtube pagehaloguy4900

where you can see tons of videos of my poms in action. thanks for reading, and have a great day!

      @IDoAlterations: Your Message Subject or TitleI also use a slicker brush, I feel the same way that you do, but I have tried many, and it works the best. It is great for my geoffrey who loves grooming, but tricky on the girls who tend to give me a hard time. thanks so much for your visit to my lens.

      My Pomeranian is an indoor dog and he naps most of the time so I don't have to bathe or brush him very often. When I do, he doesn't ENJOY it, but he tolerates it. I also cut his fur myself since groomers are a waste of money. In the beginning, he won't sit still for it, but by the end, he's standing like a show dog for me. I wish he'd do that the whole time! I do have a question. What brush do you use when you are blow drying your poms' fur? I've been using a slicker brush because it works well, but I think it pokes him in his sensitive skin.

      Everytime he has a shower we give the bitzy (fritz is the name) (Fritz the pom on squidoo, yes he has a lens about him) a brush.

      We have one Pomeranian -- Jyoti -- who is turning 11 this year... he does not like being brushed or combed and will snap at anyone who dares to touch his tail... but he does love to take long baths.... :))

      Not really...I have a golden retriever and I just remember to give her a bath and a brushing when she needs it. Plus trim her nails every so often. Good Lens though.

      When we had dogs, they did require a lot of grooming as they had "hair" vs fur. My folks have a Pom x Morkie with the most amazing, long poofy hair - she's always being groomed.

      Pomeranians are so adorable! Our dog LOVES to be groomed - she sits in my lap and looks so lovingly at me whenever I groom her.
