Pomeranians are sometimes called "Puffballs with feet" and require careful grooming. Poms do not need as much grooming as some other long haired dogs, however you should brush your Pom 2 or 3 times a week. Brushing and then combing will be important to keep tangles away. Be prepared to do extra brushing when your dog is shedding.
Ear mites will cause your pet to scratch at his/her ears, which will cause the hair in that area to matt very quickly. A quick run down is that you should bath your Pomeranian on a regular basis. It is very important to wash your Pom often because dirt and dust are abrasive to it's coat. Show dogs should be bathed weekly and at 4 to 6 week intervals during winter months. Bathing is helpful in stopping many of the skin irritations that Poms can have. It is recommended that show dogs be bathed 2 to 3 days before a show. The use of talcum powder should be done very sparingly. Nails should be kept as short as possible on this toy dog. Trimming should be done at least every 3 months. If your pet has any unremoved dewclaws, keep those trimmed short also. If nails are not trimmed regularly, they will become overgrown and continue to grow inside the dog's flesh.
