Home Security: You’ll want to make sure your home is secure so you won’t worry about your dog while you’re out. This means looking into things like Security Choice and possibly motion detectors and if you’re still uneasy, think about crating your Pomeranian when you’re away from home so you don’t worry too much.
Vet Bills: Pomeranians are pretty need intensive when it comes to health and care but that’s part of why we love them. Their coats need cleaning and brushing and they’ve got a variety of eye and throat issues to consider, too. They’re worth it but you may want to get pet insurance.
