Introducing a pet to its new home is always a great experience

Introducing a pet to its new home is always a great experience. When you first get your Pomeranian, it is important to let him or her get to know other pets, people, and children he or she will be living with right away. It’s also a good idea to socialize them with your friends, neighbors, and their pets to assure that they are receptive and sociable with all new people and animals.

An easy way to start introducing your new Pomeranian to other animals and people is to arrange a “buddy walk” with a neighbor and his or her dog. Meet on “neutral” territory (outdoors), keep both animals leashed and take a long walk around the neighborhood. Allow them to sniff each other, as this is a natural way for animals to get to know one another. If the dogs are comfortable together, try switching leads with your neighbor and continuing the walk to get your Pomeranian used to being handled by other people.

Having puppy play parties is a good way to get your Pomeranian used to newcomers, both human and canine. While your pet is still acclimating to its new environment, invite your friends with pets to come have romp around your house with the new Pomeranian. Often times, puppy Poms are more approachable than the full-grown breed, which means it is imperative to properly socialize your puppy as early as possible.

There are some behaviors that will need constant correction until your new pup learns how to act. Keeping the pup leashed as often as possible during the first few weeks will make correction easiest. Your puppy will probably mark somewhere within the house and must be corrected immediately. Being lax with marking can cause a serious problem in your dog’s training in the future. Barking, particularly at knocking or loud sounds, is another behavior problem that will frequently need to be corrected in the early stages of training.

Another important aspect of training is how your Pomeranian will treat guests in your home. Puppies of all breeds like to jump on new people; this must be sternly corrected. An effective way of discouraging this behavior is to keep your pet leashed until all guests have settled themselves in your home, at which point he or she will have had sufficient time to calm down. When inviting people into your home, you must also be careful to train your new pet not to run out the door while your guests are entering.

With proper correction and positive reinforcement, your Pomeranian puppy will grow into an adult dog that is a respectful and loving member of your family.
