White Pomeranian (Spitz) What to look for when choosing and how to care for him or her

At first only crowned heads and nobles could afford the white dogs. White has always been considered a sign of wealth and good taste. The white Pomeranian is a real miracle. He or she will bring a lot of positive energy into your home. This supremely "elegant", intelligent and charming dog captivates at first sight.

Choosing a Pomeranian puppy

White is one of the most difficult colours to breed and the breeder requires enormous experience and patience. Genuine pure-white Pomeranians are very few and far between, but due to their high price, unscrupulous breeders often try to pass off puppies with a light cream colour and sell them as white - be careful when choosing a puppy! Our kennel ot Pandy Sharm puts a lot of time and effort into creating genuine white Pomeranians with a “bear” shape. We brought the best white Pomeranians from top kennels worldwide and crossed them with champions of black and orange colour to create white offspring of the modern “bear” type with quality pigment in the eyes, nose and paws. It took 4 years to start getting good results and we can be justifiably proud of our white Pomeranians, who confidently compete in the show ring with dogs of any colours, win championship titles and win Best in show” in competitions. One of our white Pomeranians even holds the title of European Champion - an incredible achievement for a dog of this rare and very beautiful colour.

How to wash Spitz?

Despite its seeming impracticality, the Pomeranian's luxurious white coat is not so easily soiled. The white colour is not a reason to keep your pet at home, Spitz love to walk and walking is very helpful to them. Normally, if your Pomeranian is healthy and well-groomed, his hair will have dirt-repellent properties, and even if he literally gets covered in mud, once it has dried his coat will become white again. White Pomeranians should only be washed once a week.

It is a huge misconception that these dogs should only be bathed once every 4-6 months, this stems from the time when the quality of the hair-care products on sale was not so good. Regular combing and washing will keep the coat wool in good shape and condition. For washing, you will need a very high quality shampoo and conditioner; your breeder can recommend specific manufacturers and brands.

In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of shampoo with 10-20 tablespoons of water. Thoroughly wet your pet's coat and then take a small foam sponge (you can take a new sponge for washing dishes just take off the hard part) and put the shampoo solution into the wool. Lather the shampoo and leave it in the coat for 5 minutes. Very carefully rinse the shampoo out until the hair is “squeaky clean” and repeat the procedure if necessary. Dilute the conditioner with water according to the manufacturer's recommendations and put it on the dog's coat. Rinse. Don't wash away the conditioner completely - it will nourish the hair and prevent dryness. Wrap your dog in a towel and hold him for 10-15 minutes. Dry your dog with a hair dryer. At first, it is better to do this with help from an assistant, so your Spitz does not become afraid and jump, hurting himself and his limbs. The drying temperature should be comfortably warm and modern hair dryers are powerful enough. Drying should be "against the grain", use a massage comb with smooth blunt teeth to help straighten hair, lifting it from the roots. As a rule, after the first 6-10 washes, Pomeranians get used to the need for regular washes and begin to enjoy the process. Regular washing will make life much easier for you and your pet by making moulting a smooth process, because when washing and drying old hair can be easily removed, thus stimulating the growth of new hair.

Selection of combs and description of the procedure.

For combing Spitz you need a massage comb, a metal comb with long teeth and a small "slicker" brush for the wool on the paws and ears. Combing should be carried out once a week. For combing you need conditioner, diluted with water 1:13. We do not recommend ready-diluted products; the solution should be freshly prepared. The resulting solution should be poured into a spray bottle and sprinkled on the wool before brushing. This will help to unravel the little mats, if they suddenly appear, and further nourish the Pomeranian's hair, preventing breakage and dryness. Spitz wool is particularly vulnerable and requires additional moisture when the heating is on in winter or in hot, dry weather in the summer.

Caring for your puppy's fur

As soon as you have a white Pomeranian puppy, you should start to get him used to having his eyes wiped in the morning and his muzzle after eating. If the food is picked up correctly and your pet is healthy, your little white bear's eyes will stay clean during the day, but during the period of active growth and the changing of the teeth, leakage from the eye is observed in many puppies. Wipe your puppy's eyes with a special lotion from the veterinary department of the pet store or contact lens solution (sold in the pharmacy).

How to cut the nails of your Spitz puppy

Your puppy should also be taught about this procedure while he is still a "child". You will need a good nail clipper and nail file. Your veterinarian or breeder will show you how to cut your pet's claws. To avoid chipping, after clipping, each claw should be lightly filed. If you accidentally damage the living part of the blood during the clipping process and the claw seems damaged, it should be placed in a special powder (which can be found in pet stores); if you do not have this then potassium permanganate crystals may be used instead. At worst, even cooking meal can be used to stop the bleeding.

Grooming the Pomeranian

A haircut which is not too short and performed by an experienced groomer, will emphasize the dignity of your dog and will facilitate further grooming. Remember that short cuts, especially, those where clippers are used to shave the dog, are an absolute no - this can permanently damage the hair and even disrupt its growth and lead to hair loss and other problems.

Health and beauty of your pets!
