But, training your ‘Pom’ won’t be difficult as they are quite docile and very affectionate. If you train properly, they can be obedient to their owner. They can be socialized with other pets if they are trained at very young age. But, sometimes they get overprotective for their owners and snap at strangers, so, try to socialize it when it is a pup. There are certain more things that you need to take care of when you have a Pomeranian at house-
They Need Daily Exercises

This will work as energy booster to them.
Proper Grooming Is Necessary
