Are Pomeranians high maintenance?

No, Pomeranians are not high maintenance. Poms are considered to be low maintenance because:

  • Compared to other breeds, they’re easy to train, especially with lots of positive reinforcement.
  • They have lots of energy but can burn it off playing inside with toys or on short walks.
  • They’re not aggressive and, as long as they’re properly socialized, get on well with other dogs.
  • Although they have a thick coat and shed twice a year, regular brushing and 3-8 trips per year to the groomer will take care of it.

However, they do require a lot of companionship, so if you’re looking for a breed that can be left alone for long periods, a Pomeranian is not the ideal choice.
