Pomeranians were always one of my favourite breeds since I was little.

2) What attracted you to the breed?

Their unique personality and furry coats.

3) Has owning a Pomeranian lived up to your expectations?

Absolutely, life with a Pomeranian is never boring!

4) Can you give an insight into Pom Pom Chewy’s personality?

He’s very aware and also curious. He can tell how the people around him are feeling and will act accordingly. He loves playing fetch and find the toy.

5) What are the challenges of owning a Pomeranian?

Barking is something that can get out of hand with a Pomeranian due to the nature of their breed. We focus on training and keep him from being bored.

Yes and no. They are very smart so need lots of stimulation and unique training but being smart means they pick up training very quickly.

7) How much exercise does a Pomeranian need?

Pom Pom Chewy is small and will tire somewhat easily. What he likes the most is natural exercise, hiking and exploring.

8) What other stereotypes do Pomeranians have and are they representative of the breed?

Being cute, fluffy, yappy, hyper. They can be but with proper training and exercise they aren’t yappy or overly hyper. Cute and fluffy absolutely!

9) If you could dispel one myth about Pomeranians, what would it be?

That they are aggressive, its like any breed, proper training is everything.

10) Do you think Pomeranians are a good option for first-time dog owners?

They can be a bit hard but if you do a lot of research and have time to commit to training then absolutely! Small dogs tend to be treated like objects rather than dogs. This can be harmful for training.

11) Why did you decide to start an Instagram page for Pom Pom Chewy?

My friends and family were tired of me posting dog photos on my personal page ha!

12) How much time do you spend on your Instagram page?
