Pomeranians are affectionate and tiny treasures that many people love. They are known for their intelligence and learn new things very quickly. If you bring a new puppy into your home you will need to learn how to potty train a Pomeranian.
Very young puppies will need to urinate often, even as much as every two hours. This will go on until the age of 5 months, or thereabouts. You will need to take care of the dogs needs as often as required, because at this young age they cannot control their bladder.
A regular schedule is important for both you and the new dog. When a puppy is fed and watered during the same time each day, you can expect that it will relieve itself around the same time too. Take your puppy to potty as soon as you wake up, before you go to sleep, and after every meal.
Dry dog food is often best to start with, because it will keep the stool more solid. This comes in handy if you walk the dog in a place where it needs to be picked up after. Provide lots of water with dry food, and make sure to remove both food and water several hours before bedtime.
You will need to get yourself a crate. When you can’t be around to watch the puppy, put it in a crate. Dogs try not to soil areas that they have to lay in. It would be in your best interest to place the crate in an area with a washable floor.
Remember that accidents happen. It is important to remove odor from spots where the dog has accidentally peed. Even if you can’t smell it, the dog can and may associate that spot as a toilet. Some people use a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water, while others head to the pet supply store for odor cleansers.
Learning how to potty train a Pomeranian is a necessary part of having the puppy. If problems occur, just examine your routine and determine whether it has to be changed. For more information, Pom expert Carrie Herst is the person to go to for all your pom needs.
