How to Maintain your Pomeranians Grooming at Home
Pomeranian’s are best known for their “poof ball” like appearance. My three Pomeranian girls are no exception, they are all a bunch of fluff! Being a “Pommy Mommy” I know how important it is making sure they are well groomed on a regular basis. I take the girls to a professional dog groomer every five to six weeks to get a “bath and brush.”
In between grooming appointment’s I like to keep my Pomeranian’s looking their best. In order to do this I follow these FIVE easy steps to make sure the girls are always camera ready!
To clean your Pomeranian’s ears, apply ear cleaning solution or a few drops of warmed rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball and wipe any build up or dirt away from the ear. When cleaning your Pomeranian’s ears make sure not to vigorously rub the cotton ball or go in to far to the ear. This can cause damage to the ear.
Thankfully Pomeranian’s eyes are very easy to keep clean and tidy. I know it may sound a bit nasty, but in order to keep your dogs eyes looking beautiful you need to gently remove the eye boogies! Pomeranian’s can get a small brown eye booger buildup. The best way to remove these is to use warm water and a baby washcloth and simply remove the brown booger from the eye.
In order to keep the fluffy appearance Pomeranian’s need to be brushed! The best tool that I found for the job is a Shedding Rake. I do a short brushing session (lasting no longer than 3-5 minutes) on the girls two to three times a week. The shedding rake significantly helps reduce everyday shedding.
It goes without saying that I love to dress up my Pomeranian’s! By always making sure to change out hair bow’s once a week your are ensuring that your little one will always be camera ready! It also prevents the elastic from the bow to not mat around her fur. If the hair has matted to much you may have to cut the bow out. This may leave a small bald spot that could have been avoided by changing the bow. For boy dogs there are many different colorful scarfs. Make sure to select a scarf that is the correct size to avoid injury. To top off your Poms look there are dog friendly fragrances that you can apply. They keep your dog smelling fresh and clean!
Make sure to purchase dog toothpaste and clean your Pomeranian’s teeth on a regular basis. Dog toothpaste usually comes in poultry based flavors or a peanut butter. By brushing your dogs teeth you are not only making sure they have fresh breath, but you are also keeping them healthy by not allowing tarter to build up and needing expensive dentals done by your veterinarian.
By making sure to follow these five easy steps your Pomeranian will always look and feel amazing!
