Welcoming a Pomeranian into your home is something very exciting. The first thing you need to do when you bring your new Pomeranian home is to socialize it with your other existing pets, with your friends and with other people's pets. Most pets that already have an established social life will enjoy a newcomer as long as this newcomer is friendly and introduced properly.
You may start socializing your Pomeranian by allowing it to have initial contact with other dogs outside your home. You may do this by taking it out for a walk and having a friend of yours meet you somewhere with her dog. Then, take a long walk, so that the dogs can get used to each other's company. After this, you may take the dogs back to the house. Your friend and you may switch dogs and take a tour around the house with both dogs still leashed.
Another way to socialize your Pomeranian is by letting your other dogs loose while keeping the Pomeranian tied to you. Whenever he tries to mark the house anywhere, you may correct with a sharp jerk and a stern "No!" Never ever tolerate any marking. When your Pomeranian meets with other dogs, allow them to sniff each other as it is their way of saying "Hi!"
Whenever it is possible, invite friends and their animals to your home where you may let the dogs play among themselves. This will make your dog much more relaxed around other dogs and people, thus, making it easier to handle. A Pomeranian puppy may always generate warm feelings towards other people while an adult one does not. It is important that your Pomeranian makes a good impression on your friends and neighbors from the start, especially if you also have other pets.
It is always important to set rules for your Pomeranian. While still training them about socializing, make sure that you keep them leashed all the time when your friends are gathering in your home so that it will not attempt to jump on them. It may take a few weeks for it to learn how to handle this situation.
Aside from this, your Pomeranian should also be aware that it should not bark when the doorbell rings, nor should it run out when you open the door for your guests. Make your Pomeranian sit by your side and ask your guests to ignore it until everyone is in, so that it will have the chance to evaluate the new people around. Once it is calm, let your guests approach it for petting. If you have not yet established the control you need over your dog, you would have to wait until it is well-trained before allowing your guests to pet it. You should also train your Pomeranian to accept guests with four feet on the ground.
After you succeed in eliminating its obnoxious behavior and make it behave in an acceptable manner, you will indeed have a great addition to your family.
