Scampering around the house may not seem like
exercise, however over the course of a day if a Pom is moving around quite a bit, he can tire out just from that.
Puppies are special little creatures and oh-so cute. It is very typical for a Pom puppy to be supercharged with energy, romping all round, rolling over like a silly-head and bopping from here to there, only to tire out in a matter of seconds and fall asleep right where he is.
The energy level of puppies is like a roller coaster; so it is normal for a puppy to have intermittent time of being active, tiring and then napping.
As he matures, this will level out. When the Pom reaches his one year mark, he will nap a lot less and sleep better though the night.
Poms of any age up to about 8 years old should have good amount of energy, be alert to their surroundings, be ready to play, walk and accompany owners outside of the house.
An adult may take a nap or two here and there or may need some windows of relaxation, however he/she should not be overly tired and if this is noticed it can point to an issue as we will discuss ahead.
Senior Pomeranians can tire much easier than their adult counterparts, and in many cases this is a natural part of the aging process. However, marked tiredness that suddenly comes on can point any number of health problems, which we will go over next.
