Stuff for Pomeranians and their people!
Tiny dog - huge spirit!
From the American Pomeranian Club: "The Pomeranian is a Nordic breed which takes its name from the province of Pomerania, now located in Germany. It was bred down to its current 3 to 7 pound toy size from larger ancestors which were used for herding and for pulling sleds. Their popularity was greatly enhanced by Queen Victoria of England, who owned the first Pomeranians to be shown. Pomeranians come in a wide variety of coat colors and patterns. These spirited, loving and loyal dogs excel in the show ring, companion events and as therapy dogs."
We know what your Pom wants!
Our shop, GollyGear.com, speciallizes in fun, affordable, and practical small-dog solutions. We have harnesses, toys, treats, collars, bowls and more - all scaled to sizes for small dogs.
Step-in Harness from Yellow Dog Design
Yellow Dog Design is known for practical dog accessories with splashy designs. These Step-in Harnesses for our little dogs are just that! The harnesses are well-made, sturdy and comfortable for our small dogs but are fun and affordable! You won't find these designs in any other collection - they're unique, copyrighted and made in the USA. They're colorfast polyester and are machine washable! And all the straps are adjustable.
Poochee Rolled Cloth Harness
The Poochee Cloth Step-in Harness is a simple, easy-to-use harness that's practical and stylish. It's instantly adjustable for any little dog! Just pull the sliders up, put your little dog's front paws through the openings, bring the leash up and adjust the sliders. We prefer a rounded strap on harnesses for thickly-coated dogs, it has less tendency to pull and mat their fur. Available in four colors (black, red, pink and purple) and five sizes (Teacup to Large).
Kong brings our little dogs teeny Tennis Balls that squeak! It takes quite a bit of pressure to make them squeak, but Roc, Hope's 10-pound Brussels Griffon, loves to carry his little tennis ball around squeaking it! (Since these little tennis balls are so small and they are hollow, be sure to supervise your little dog when they play with the Squeakers.) Each measures 1 1/2 inch in diameter. 3 Air KongÂ® Squeakers come in a mesh bag.
Rolled Microfiber Step-in Harness
Rolled fabric designs are really our favorites for avoiding matting with fuzzy dogs. The Rolled Microfiber Step-in Harness is a soft, inexpensive yet sturdy harness that fits the bill. Adjusting perfectly with sliders every time it's used, the Rolled Microfiber Step-in is available in three small-dog sizes and four colors: Black, Pink, Green and Purple.
Toy Temptations Treats
It's hard to find dog treats that are safe, healthy, and small enough to be a true treat, rather than an entire meal.
Toy Temptations fill the bill - sourced and produced in the United States, corn-, soy-, and wheat-free, limited ingredient treats only one inch long. Toy Temptations can even be broken into smaller pieces without disintegrating.
We know that Poms love to learn and rewarding them with "cookies" is a great way to keep them interested and motivated. Any of the seven available flavors is a great way to keep your Pom interested.
Clicking on all cylinders
The Click-A-Trick set (Clicker is included) is an introduction to the fun you and your dog can have with Positive Reinforcement (Clicker) training. 10 cards have detailed instructions on how to teach each trick and the steps you and your dog will put together into a complete performance.
Pomeranians are highly intelligent little dogs - if their minds aren't being engaged, chances are they'll find creative ways to keep busy, which usually means trouble! Training, even just 10 minutes a day, will not only strengthen your bond with your dog, but also tire him out as much as a much longer exercise session. She'll be working out her mind, as well as her body, and have a great time doing it.
