The Pomeranian is typically intelligent, outgoing, curious, and confident. It has a playful and smart nature, but sometimes it can be too demanding and may tend to disobey commands if they are not properly trained.
A Pomeranian has the makings of a great watchdog but it should be trained not to bark excessively. It makes a great companion for seniors and seems to be made for show rings. However, when it becomes nervous around young children, it may bite. If you have small children in your house, a Pomeranian is not recommended for you.
Loud noises and quick movements of kids may overwhelm it, causing it to respond by biting. However, you can control its unpredictable behavior by introducing it slowly to the kids, allowing adequate time for both parties to get familiar with each other. Your children should know how to handle the dog carefully as it is not a toy. Once your Pomeranian has become comfortable in its new surroundings, it will be more affectionate to all family members.
The Pomeranian should never be left outside your yard without supervision as it is often sensitive to new sights and sounds. You should be there to quickly stop it from making high-pitched excessive barks that could irritate close neighbors. A Pomeranian is not a submissive breed. It is very intelligent and it has a mind of its own which seems independent and manipulative. Therefore, it is important that you show from the start that you mean what you say.
