POMERANIAN...
THE LITTLE DOG
WHO THINKS IT CAN!!!!
ON THIS PAGE YOU WILL FIND INFORMATION WHICH WILL HELP
KEEP YOUR NEW BABY SAFE IN HIS/HER NEW HOME...
WHEN YOU BRING YOUR POM INTO YOUR HOUSEHOLD YOU CAN
EXPECT AN ENTERTAINING AND LOVING COMPANION, BUT YOU
CANNOT EXPECT TO GET A DOG THAT IS A PLAYMATE FOR YOUR
SMALL CHILDREN.
BRINGING YOUR PUPPY HOME...
WHEN YOU GET HOME EVERYONE WILL WANT TO HOLD OR TOUCH
THE PUPPY. DON'T OVERDO IT. ESPECIALLY DON'T ALLOW
CHILDREN IN THE HOUSEHOLD TO HANDLE HIM ALOT. LET THEM
PET HIS HEAD OR TOUCH HIM IN THE CRATE, RESERVING MORE
ACTIVITY FOR A FEW DAYS LATER. THE STRESS OF LEAVING HIS
LITTERMATES AND ADJUSTING TO A STRANGE ENVIRONMENT WILL
STRAIN THIS LITTLE BABY. CUDDLE AND PLAY WITH HIM BUT
ALSO GIVE HIM PLENTY OF REST. DURING THE FIRST MONTH YOU
WILL NEED TO MAKE HIM FOOTWISE. A POM PUPPY RUNNING
UNDER YOUR FEET NOT ONLY ENDANGERS HIMSELF, BUT CAN
CAUSE YOU TO TAKE A NASTY FALL. TO AVOID THIS PROBLEM,
START TEACHING HIM TO STAY AWAY FROM YOUR FEET. SCOOT
YOUR FEET FOR THE FIRST FEW WEEKS UNTIL YOUR PUPPY IS
FOOTWISE.
UNSAFE FOODS FOR YOU NEW LITTLE ONE INCLUDE...
CHOCOLATE, GRAPES, RAISINS, AND SAUSAGE. IT IS BEST TO
AVOID ALL SPICY AND GREASY SNACKS.
*YOU WILL WANT TO GET YOUR NEW BABY TOYS WHICH OF
COURSE I THINK IS GREAT BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU
CHOSE FOR THEM!!! YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET THEM TOYS WITH
PARTS THEY CAN CHEW OFF AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET
THEM RAWHIDE, UNFORTUNATELY I KNOW SEVERAL POM
OWNERS WHO HAVE LOST THEIR POMS DUE TO CHOKING ON
RAWHIDE SO PLEASE DO NOT GET THESE FOR YOUR BABIES. I
KNOW THEY ARE SPECIFICALLY MADE FOR DOGS BUT BECAUSE
POMS ARE SO TINY THEY CAN CHOKE VERY EASILY ON A SMALL
PIECE THAT THEY MAY CHEW OFF. THERE ARE LOTS OF SAFE
TOYS AND TREATS OUT THERE FOR YOUR BABY - JUST KEEP IN
MIND THE SIZE OF YOUR BABY WHEN CHOOSING HIS/HER TOYS
AND TREATS ;-)
THERE ARE A FEW THINGS IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES THAT WE
WOULD NEVER CONSIDER AS DANGERS TO OUR FURBABIES, THESE
THINGS INCLUDE...
*RECLINER CHAIRS, BE SURE YOUR LITTLE ONE IS NOT UNDER THE
FOOTREST WHEN YOU PUT IT DOWN.
*COLORED MULCH AND SEVERAL PLANTS ARE POISNOUS TO ANY
DOG! PLEASE SUPERVISE YOUR POM WHEN HE/SHE IS OUTDOORS
PLAYING. AN EXERCISE PEN WILL HELP KEEP YOUR BABY SAFE.
*DO NOT LEAVE YOUR LITTLE ONE UNATTENED ON FURNITURE,
POMS HAVE VERY LITTLE FEAR, THEY WOULD NOT THINK TWICE
ABOUT JUMPING DOWN OFF OF HIGH FURNITURE.
*PUPPIES LOVE TO CHEW, PLEASE BE SURE ALL ELECTRICAL
CORDS ARE UP OUT OF PUPPIES REACH.
