Grooming a pomapoo

Pomapoos require regular grooming. Straight coats need less maintenance than curly coats. A puppy pomapoo will tend to have shorter, fluffier coats that require less brushing than an adult’s. Pomapoos should be brushed at least once a week. Straight-coated pompous can be bathed as much as two times a week, but if the dog is mostly kept indoors, it can be bathed as little as once a month. Pomapoos with straight fur should be brushed with a steel brush. Curly-coated pompapoos should have the same bathing schedule, but they need to be brushed more frequently than straight-haired pomapoos. Curly-furred pompous should be groomed with softer brush to prevent excessive hair pulling.

The pomapoo’s nails should be trimmed at least once a month. It is also advisable for owners to trim hair around genital areas for sanitary purposes, and also around the dog’s paw pads.  The dog’s teeth should be brushed each time it gets a bath. Pomeranians are known to have bad teeth, so preventative care is important.

Pomapoo physical health

Pomapoos generally are healthy, especially because they are hybrids. They can live to about 13 or 16 years. One common health problem to watch out for is teeth problems. Other possible ailments include dislocated knees, heart defects, collapsed trachea, and cataracts. Part of a healthy pomapoo lifestyle is exercising twice a day, such as by going on walk. In terms of diet Pomapoos should be fed dry kibble. The dry kibble helps maintain their teeth, preventing decay. The food they eat should be “small-bite”.

Temperament of Pomapoos

The temperament of the Pomapoo can vary between that of a poodle or pomeranian. Pomeranians err on the side of somewhat aggressive, while the Poodle tends to be more calm and obedient. Pomerarians, and therefore pomapoos, can be noisy dogs; their inclination for barking means that pomapoos can make good guard dogs. In addition, Pomapoos are an intelligent, loving, and loyal. They love attention and are often eager to please. Pomapoos are usually very socialable. Itss personality can range from being outgoing and friendly (poodle qualities) to the more independent personality of the Pomeranian. If their social stimulation needs are not met, Pomapoos can easily get depressed. Pomapoos are companion dogs, and must live indoors with the family. They should not live outdoors.

Some pompous can be stubborn and take more patience to train, while others are quite eager to please. Positive reinforcement is the best way to train all dogs including the pomapoo, rather than harsh training that involves punishment.

Pomapoo Overview

A Pomapoo is a type of dog that is a hybrid of a Pomeranian a Poodle. Because it is a mixture of two recognizable breeds, it is considered a “designer dog.” Pomapoos are also called by names such as Pooranian, Pom A poo, Pom-a-poo, or Pompoo. Pomapoos are generally small in size, ranging from about eight to twelve inches and they weigh up to about fifteen pounds.  This crossbreed inherits some coat qualities from the poodle so it has a non-shedding coat. Appearance-wise the Pomapoo tends to take more traits from its Pomeranian side, although the coat texture can vary from straight, curly, or wavy. They can come in various colors such as black, white, sable, and brown, which is the most common.
