How to take care of a Pomeranian puppy easily? A complete guide

Teach your puppy to drink liquids

All puppies need to be taught how to drink properly. If they aren't, they will end up with a bad habit that can lead to problems later in life. You should start the process of teaching your puppy when they are four weeks old. They need to learn how to use their tongue and nose properly when drinking. If you don't teach them this, it can lead to problems later on in their lives as we told before.

First of all, you need to bring the water bowl close enough so that your puppy can drink from it without having to walk over to it. Don't put the water bowl too far away because then your puppy won't be able to reach it and will get frustrated trying to do so, which could result in them giving up on trying altogether. The ideal distance is about one foot away from where your puppy is sitting or standing at that moment, but not more than two feet away from the area where their head would normally be if they were standing upright.

In this way you can teach your puppies how to drink water.

Potty train your Pomeranian puppy

Teaching your Pomeranian puppy to use the bathroom properly is a vital part of its development. This means that you will need to take the time to make sure that your puppy learns what it is doing and where it needs to be going. It’s important for your dog to learn this, because if it doesn’t, it may end up going to the bathroom in your house ahead and this can be a mess for you to have to clean up. Here are some great potty training tips:

First of all, you should know that it is very important not to get angry at your Pomeranian puppy if he or she makes a mistake. It is best not to yell at them or give them a look that says they’ve done something wrong because then they will think that you will become angry anytime they go anywhere but their designated spot. Instead, praise them when they do go in the right spot and even give them treats as rewards so they will be more inclined to continue doing things correctly. If they do make a mistake, simply clean it up and keep moving.

Some common illnesses Pomeranians suffers from

Pomeranian puppies have got to be one of the cutest dogs out there. But like any other breed, Pomeranian puppies are susceptible to illness and disease. That's why it's important to know which common illnesses Pomeranian puppies suffer from. Being informed on these illnesses will help you identify them early. In the next few paragraphs we will know all about 


Parvovirus is a serious disease that dogs can get. Dogs contract parvo by being around other infected dogs and through shared spaces. Puppies are at greater risk than older dogs as they are still building their immunity and cannot fully protect themselves from the virus. Even puppies with shots can be infected if they live in the same space as other infected puppies. The good news is that most dogs recover from parvo but many times even with full recovery, it's possible for them to become ill again.

If you call to question whether your puppy is suffering from this disease you should immediately contact your veterinarian because if this virus is not identified early then this can be fatal for your puppies. To prevent sepsis, your puppy will be given IV fluids and antibiotics. When a dog has Parvo, he or she becomes dehydrated, which can be really dangerous.

In most cases, puppies become ill when they are in the house of breeders. In that case, you should buy it from reputable breeders who sell well-breed teacup pomeranian puppies for sale. The kennel should be registered by AKC or Americal Kennel Club. So be aware of bad breeders.


Distemper is an infectious disease caused by a paramyxovirus, which is a type of virus that can spread from animals to humans. It affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and central nervous systems of mammals.

Transmission of the virus

Wildlife such as skunks and raccoons can carry distemper without showing any symptoms. They can pass the virus to domestic dogs through direct contact with saliva, urine, or feces. The virus can also be transmitted through the air if infected animals sneeze or cough. Indoor cats are at low risk for exposure since they do not come into contact with wildlife.

Incubation period

The incubation period ranges from one to four weeks. Once infected, an animal will remain infectious for life. However, symptoms typically appear within three weeks after exposure to the virus.

There is no treatments for this disease but the supportive team can help dogs to get better by pushing intravenous fluids into them.

Grooming your puppy

Grooming your Pomeranian puppy can be fun, but it is a lot of work. It's best to start a grooming routine when your Pom is still young. You want your dog to get used to being handled in a certain way. Brushing and combing are part of the grooming routine. Be sure to brush against the grain of the coat. Brushing against the grain will help bring up the oils from their skin, which helps keep their coat shiny and healthy-looking.

You'll have to decide how often you'd like to bathe your Pom. You should bathe him or her at least once every few months. Not only will this make them smell better, but it also makes them look better. Just remember that they don't need baths as often as we do. Too many baths can cause their beautiful coat to dry out and become brittle and eventually break off.

As you're brushing and combing your Pomeranian puppy, you will notice some loose hair coming out on the brush or comb. To remove that hair, use a slicker brush (a flat metal brush). Use this brush gently to remove any dead hair from their undercoat.
