In the previous publication we told you why separation anxiety happens, especially in small dogs like Pomeranians, and at the same time we gave you some small tips to avoid your dogs suffering from it. If you missed this post, you can read it again by clicking here. In this post we will talk about three types of toys that help Colette to cope with separation anxiety, all having in common that they include treats inside. (more…)

Because of its small size, because of our way of treating them/pampering them, Pomeranians have a tendency to suffer separation anxiety, which causes them a state of anguish, stress and depression, moments before their human leaves and while they remain alone at home.
If your dog suffers it, these reactions will not be unknown for you, but just in case we indicate that this anxiety is manifested in behavioral problems such as: (more…)
EXPLANATORY NOTE! This kind of posts regarding health and nutrition, which you will find in Pom Pom Dog, are written after having consulted several specialized texts and read different opinions. That is the reason why in case of doubt or problem, ask ALWAYS your veterinarian.
Taking advantage of the fact that we took Colette to the veterinarian to be vaccinated today, we find interesting to explain you in a simple way, through a practical vaccinations calendar, in which moment you have to get your Pomeranian vaccinated, as well as tell you which are the adverse reactions in their little bodies to these vaccines. This information will be especially useful to those who have puppies or who will have them soon in your homes, and for those who already have adult Pomeranians, it never hurts to remember it. (more…)
Lately we have attended with Colette a series of informative talks organized by Espacio Animal, a shop specialized in natural therapies and positive education located in Madrid, Spain. These talks, besides being useful to keep increasing our knowledge, are for charity, since the money collected goes to an animal protection association.
In one of these talks, the expert in veterinary nutrition and dietetics Mónica González Tovar analyzed the different kind of food and proposed us practical suggestions to improve our pets’ diet, no matter what diet we are following, dry, wet, dehydrated or raw. (more…)
One of the best ideas to feed and to hydrate our best friend in the summer heat while he’s having fun is giving him an ice-cream.
There are lots of video tutorials on the Internet to do homemade ice-creams, but this time wanted Colette to taste a processed ice-cream but with a homemade preparation, which contains a 120 grammes tub and a bag with powdered yoghurt and lyophilized fruit (this time, banana).
The final amount obtained is too much for our little Pomeranians, so you can give him 1/3 of the ice-cream at the most….and the rest is for you! : )
Are bananas good for Pomeranians? (more…)
Tips when moving with dogs
We want to apologize because since the last post about Colette’s holidays on the floating houses, we haven’t updated the blog. The main reason: we were moving and Colette and I will be living in Madrid since the 1st October.
Taking advantage of this circumstance, in today’s post we want to talk you about the moving, because even if, unlike cats, dogs tend to be more attached to their owners than to their surroundings, it is always good to have some tips for before, during and after the moving for calming our Pomeranians down and make them less likely to suffer anxiety in this situation.

When in the middle of May we knew that Pets&Poms, the hairdresser where Colette goes since the first day, has opened its canine SPA, we were looking forward to take her there, but because of her heat and then her shedding period, we didn’t find the time to go…until last Saturday when Colette made a ‘complete treatment’: SPA, cutting and brushing, that Colette really needed. When you will see the before and after photos in this post, you are going to hallucinate! (more…)
One of the first issues that arise when we have our puppy ready for a walk for the first time, after having vaccinated it, is whether using a harness or a collar.
This is a very personal matter that, as always, will depend on you, the owners, and above all, on how your dogs feel more comfortable.
After taking into account all the harness and collar pros and cons, we’ve come to the conclusion that we prefer to use a harness for Colette, especially for health and safety reasons. (more…)
