Dog Playpen or Gates:

Most new owners believe keeping a new puppy in his crate is the typical action when he’s not being watched closely. However, there are a few negatives to doing this:

  •  It may be regarded as a case of neglect if you confine your puppy to a tiny dog crate.
  •  If he’s kept confined in this manner, he may start feeling extremely stressed, possibly leading your puppy to cry, bark, yelp, and whine more, and he may become more depressed.
  •  Puppy has nothing to stop him from defecating and urinating each time he needs to and wherever he’s standing within the crate.

Your playpen or gated area needs certain elements to make it a comfortable “home” for your new puppy.

A Dog Crate Suitable For A Pomeranian:

If you’re not personally collecting your puppy, he’ll come in a crate. Such crates are great tools for housetraining and useful when traveling or as a bed.

Vets often request that you take your Pom puppy to his clinic in a carrier crate to help avoid spreading infectious diseases (e.g., Dog Flu or Kennel Cough) so he has the best possible method for controlling all animals in his clinic. Once you have found the right vet for your puppy’s needs, talk to him about his protocols regarding crating your puppy for clinic visits.

Pomeranian Puppy Food:

Good breeders will supply a diet chart as part of their file. Follow this to the letter for the first few weeks and make any dietary changes gradual. This also applies to “old food” he had been eating and whatever new puppy food you may use.

The key to dietary changes is to make them gradually, not quickly. Most puppies can’t cope with fast changes in their diet, so have plenty of old and new foods, so you set the gradual pace for the changes. Breeders sometimes offer food samples for new puppy owners, but these will only last 1-2 days.

Before you take ownership, get plenty of information regarding the variety and brands of food your new puppy has enjoyed eating. If you have enough food to last your pup for two weeks, that will be a good starting point from which to begin making gradual changes.

Giving your puppy tap water could result in tummy upsets. So, at least for the first few weeks, ensure your Pomeranian only drinks bottled water.

Pomeranian Sized Harness and Leash:

Pomeranians shouldn’t wear collars because they may cause injuries, sometimes even life-threatening problems, and a major, long-term effect on their life. Because of the possibilities of severe problems, check out the Pom Care section “Tips on selecting the perfect collar and harness for your Pomeranian.”

Water and Food Bowls Suitable for Pomeranian Puppies:

Bowls should be shallow for puppies so they don’t keep hitting their head or nose against the side when drinking and/or eating. All dogs should only use stainless steel or ceramic bowls. Puppies and dogs can be allergic to bowls made of plastic.

Bowls that have heavy dyes may leak into the food. Plastic bowls become scratched and nicked easily, and bacteria can grow from these areas. If your puppy’s bowl is colored, it can discolor his facial hair. These bowls are light, so they can be kicked, pushed, or tripped over very easily.

Comfy Dog Bed:

You must make a decision early on regarding where your puppy will sleep. This will quickly become his habit. If you want him snuggled up in bed for you, think first. He may love it, and you may also love it…right now, but what happens in five years, ten years, or more?

Adult dogs can sleep in an owner’s bed, but a Pomeranian puppy is small and won’t be housebroken yet, so think of the problems ahead if that’s where he will sleep. He’s best off in a comfortable bed of his own.

You may decide to allow him to sleep in your bed when he’s an adult. Regardless of your decision, he must have a suitable dog bed when you’re not home, or he needs a nap.

A Canine Car Seat Suitable for a Pomeranian:

Thoughts differ on whether a car seat or a crate is the safest when taking a dog in the car. This is not an item that needs to be purchased within the first week or so.

Spend time shopping for a seat to ensure your product is safe and strong and will last your puppy well into adulthood. You must learn as much as possible about canine traveling and the ideal products that are comfortable, safe, and reduce motion sickness.

Read the article – “Selecting The Ideal Car Seat For Your Pomeranian” for extra details.

A Good Veterinarian:

Although a vet isn’t a product supplier (generally speaking), you must check your contract of sale as most breeders will stipulate that you must take your new Pomeranian puppy to the vet for a complete physical within 24, 48 or 72 hours from the day when your new pet arrives.

This check-up protects:

a. The breeder – Although breeders will guarantee your puppy has no genetic health problems, your vet needs to run a full gamut of tests to verify that your puppy did come home with no health problems you’re unaware of.

b. The puppy—The breeder has had the all-clear from his vet. This examination will verify that he’s healthy and happy.

c. You – Owning a puppy is a huge responsibility, so you’ll want peace of mind by confirming that the puppy you receive is healthy, and then it’s your job to ensure he remains healthy.

The ideal vet for your Pomeranian may not be near you. It’s highly recommended that you interview at least three vets within a decent driving range to understand better how they work and care for the animals they treat. Make an appointment so you know you have time to get to know the vet and his practice.

New Pomeranian Parents Should Ask Questions:

  •  How many Pomeranians are current patients? He needs experience in treating Pomeranians.
  •  Do they answer after-hours calls? If they say no, you don’t need to waste more time.
  •  Do they have support staff available over the weekends and after hours? If not, you can stop right there, as you need a 2 a.m. call answered if your Pom has hurt himself badly.
  •  Will they do a house call if it is urgent? How do they define an urgent matter? Your Pom may be too unwell for you to drive him to the vet.
  •  How long has the vet been practicing? Sure, it’s great to try out new people, but when it comes to the health of your puppy, 2-3 years’ worth of experience is a minimum requirement.
  •  What are their requirements regarding bringing in your ill Pom? The right answer is that he should be in a crate and, perhaps, brought in through a different door as he may be affected by other dogs who may be highly contagious.
