This book is fantastic. I got my first Pom earlier this year, and have been collecting a library of Pom books. This one is by far the best. It has pretty much everything you need to know about owning & caring for a Pom. Every once in a while I cross reference to another Pom book, but generally this one is right on with what is best & most up to date! Very informative without being too biased, too.

I ordered this book a couple weeks after rescuing a seven month old pomeranian puppy. This book was a life saver!!! The information about house training was fantastic. Although the chapters about deciding on the breed and finding a breeder in the beginning of the book came a little to late for me, it would have been very useful. Whether you already have a pom, or are just thinking about it, I highly recommend getting this book!!

Much of this book is devoted to the decision to buy a Pom, advise about choosing a Pom, and how to care for a Pom puppy. Since I purchased an adult Pom before buying the book, it wasn't quite what I needed. That said, the information that was relevant for me was very helpful.

I received this product very timely and was well satisfied with it. I have owned a Pom for nine years and wished I would have read this book when I first got her. I had plenty to learn though and from past experience, the book is "right on." Recommend it to anyone who is thinking about raising Pomeranians.

Pomeranians For Dummies (For Dummies (Pets))

If you love your pom, you'll read this book and get to know your pet....that way, you can give it the care it needs and yearns for.

This book tells you in layman terms everything you would want to know as a responsible and loving dog owner. Pomeranians are a special breed with unique physical characteristics and a personality of its own. This isn't just another dog book, it's written especially for pom lovers.

In June of this year my husband got me a 3 mo. old pom for my birthday. I fell in love at first sight, but up until this point I'd always been a human society adopter and had never gotten a dog younger than 1 1/2 old. This book was very helpful in unraveling some of the quirks of the breed, explaining some things to watch out for and special tips to training a pom. Some of it was also a bit no brainer or could be applied to any dog, but it was still insightful in many other areas. With some help from this the fuzzball is well on her way to being trained, at about 5 1/2 months she was completely potty trained which was FABULOUS because my steam cleaner was getting a bit worn out =P. I would recommend this for new owners but just don't treat it like the Pomeranian bible. A bit of common sense mixed with educated information can go a long way with your new best friend.

I'll be honest, by the time I bought this book I had already done a lot of research on the breed online. I knew I was planning on getting a Pom and wanted all the info I could get my hands on. This book didn't really tell me anything breed specific that I didn't already know. So, if you aren't a google sleuth... it's a fabulous intro to the breed and dog ownership in general. If you want to save your money though do a lot of reading online and join some forums... they will educate you just as much.
