    Hello, Pomeranian parents!
    Day 1-7: Introduction and Routine Establishment
    Understanding Your Pomeranian: Recognize that Pomeranians are intelligent, energetic, and can be stubborn. They respond well to positive reinforcement.
    Create a Safe Space: Set up a comfortable area for your Pomeranian with a crate, bed, and toys.
    Routine: Establish a strict schedule for feeding, potty breaks, playtime, and sleep. Consistency is key.
    First Potty Breaks: Take your Pomeranian out for a potty break first thing in the morning, after meals, and before bedtime.
    Week 2-4: Consistency and Training
    Regular Potty Breaks: Continue with frequent potty breaks at the same times each day—praise and reward when your Pomeranian goes potty outside.
    Signal Training: Train your Pomeranian to signal when they need to go out. This could be barking, sitting at the door, or a specific sound like a bell.
    Supervision: Keep a close eye on your Pomeranian. If you notice signs they need to go (sniffing, circling), immediately take them outside.
    Accidents: If accidents happen, clean up without scolding. Use an enzymatic cleaner to remove odors.
    Month 2-6: Refinement and Socialization
    Reinforcement: Continue to reinforce good potty habits with praise and treats.
    Socialization: Introduce your Pomeranian to different environments and people to build confidence.
    Crate Training: If using a crate, associate it with positive experiences. It helps in potty training as dogs typically avoid soiling their sleeping area.
    Professional Training: Consider enrolling in a puppy training class for socialization and basic obedience.
    Beyond 6 Months: Ongoing Training and Care
    Routine Maintenance: Stick to the established routine but gradually increase the time between potty breaks.
    Health Check-Ups: Regular vet visits are important. Please talk about any concerns like irregular potty habits.
    Advanced Training: Continue training for advanced commands and tricks to keep their mind active.
    Patience and Love: Remember, every Pomeranian is different. Patience and consistent positive reinforcement are key.
