Preparing to Dry a Pomeranian

Before you start drying your Pomeranian, it’s essential to prepare them for the process. Here are some steps you can take:

StepDescription
1Brush your Pomeranian’s fur to remove any tangles or knots.
2Use a towel to dry your Pomeranian’s fur as much as possible before using a hairdryer.
3Preferably use a forced air dog dryer. If a forced air dog dryer is unavailable, use a human hairdryer with a low heat setting to avoid burning your Pomeranian’s skin.
4Use a brush to direct the airflow and dry your Pomeranian’s fur in the direction of the hair growth.
Denise Leo says, “It’s crucial to avoid overheating your Pomeranian, especially around the head and ears. You should also ensure that the hairdryer is not too close to your dog’s skin, which can cause burns.”

Using the Right Tools

Using the right tools can make a significant difference when drying a Pomeranian. A forced air dog dryer is a MUST for all Pomeranian owners.

Dryers for humans should be avoided if possible, as they are too hot and do not have enough force to dry the dog correctly.

Tools for Drying a Pomeranian

Here are some of the tools you might need:

ToolUse a brush to direct the airflow and dry your Pomeranian’s fur toward the hair growth.
TowelUse a towel to dry your Pomeranian’s fur as much as possible before using a hairdryer.
Hairdryer The best is a forced-air dog dryer.  If unavailable, use a low-heat setting hairdryer for humans to avoid burning your Pomeranian’s skin.
BrushUse a brush to direct the airflow and dry your Pomeranian’s fur in the direction of the hair growth.
Denise Leo says, ” Choosing the right brush for your Pomeranian’s fur is essential. A slicker brush works well for most Pomeranians, but you might also need a pin brush if your dog has thick fur.”

Make grooming a breeze with a forced-air dog dryer! If you don’t have one, don’t worry – a human dryer is a suitable alternative. Suitable fan-forced dryers can be purchased on Amazon or eBay. For example, I have found this ideal one on Amazon for around $100.”

How to Properly Dry a Pomeranian

To dry your Pomeranian correctly, follow these steps:

  • Towel dry your dog first.
  • Use a forced air dog dryer to start drying from underneath your Pomeranian. Then move on to drying the legs and ears.
  • Next, dry the sides of your dog in layers while brushing the fur toward the head area.
  • Dry your dog in layers, starting with the underneath, behind the ears, and legs, before moving on to the sides and back of the dog.
