The Pomeranian is a small dog that appreciates comfort and the finer things in life. So choose their accessories with care! This is even more true when it comes to their dog bed, as your Pomeranian will spend most of their time resting there to get their beauty sleep.

What Size Dog Bed for a Pomeranian?

When it comes to choosing your dog's bed, size does matter. A dog’s bed should be perfectly proportionate to their size - neither too big nor too small. There’s no point in choosing a dog bed that’s too large for your dog; they won’t be comfortable there. Dogs like to feel surrounded and protected. When lying down, the edges should just touch your dog on all sides, so that they feel safe and secure but not cramped. Choose a dog bed that’s about as wide as your dog when curled into a ball. To get the right size, measure your pooch from nose to tail. If you’re concerned that the dog bed is really too small, add an extra 10 to 15cm so that they can have a little leeway. For a Pomeranian, therefore, choose a dog bed of about 60 to 80cm.

What's the Best Material for a Dog Bed?

The choice of material is also important! If your pooch has destructive tendencies, you’ll be better off with a plastic dog bed, which is sturdier and much easier to clean than a fabric or leather dog bed, for example. A plastic dog bed also saves you from pest infestations, such as dust mites. Plastic dog beds are less comfortable than other types of dog bed, but you can make them cosy and comfortable by adding blankets and pillows. In any case, avoid wicker baskets, which are more likely to be destroyed. Your dog could swallow the debris, causing intestinal obstruction or suffocation.

You can opt for a basket-type dog bed with a raised edge to reinforce the impression of your dog being well supported and surrounded. Some doggies, however, don't like this feeling. In this case, a pillow dog bed without a rim will be perfectly suited to your dog. Some may even prefer a rug, a dog sofa, or even a cage. Pay attention to your dog’s preferences to ensure that they’re perfectly comfortable at bedtime. The same precautions always apply: avoid easily destructible materials, make sure the size of the bed is proportional to the animal, and prioritise their comfort above all else.

Where Should I Put My Pomeranian's Bed?

Where you place your Pomeranian’s dog bed is important, too! A bed in the wrong place could have unfortunate consequences. Choose a quiet area, such as a corner of the living room, for example. Your Pomeranian’s bed should be easily accessible to them but out of the way of everyone else so that they can rest without fear of being disturbed. Your Pom won’t want to be in a place that’s too isolated and far from the family either. Respect your dog’s sleep needs and avoid waking them up if possible. If you have children, teach them to respect your Pomeranian’s sleeping habits. No matter how nice your dog is normally, they might react badly to being woken up. These doggies can have a bit of a temper and could unintentionally injure a child, even with their small jaw!

But can you have your dog’s bed in your bedroom? This topic is the subject of hot debate. Some think it’s to be avoided at all costs, and others believe it’s no problem. We recommend that you avoid having your dog's bed in your bedroom, at least at first. You don’t want to encourage them developing an excessive attachment to you, which could later turn into separation anxiety. Your dog needs to learn to be alone, including at night. Learning to be alone is an essential point in your Pomeranian’s training. Resist the urge to let them sleep with you while they’re still a puppy. Later, you may be able to lift this ban if your dog is well trained.

Can Pomeranians Sleep Outside?

Pomeranians are not suited to sleep outdoors, despite their thick coat. As such, there's no point in buying your Pom a kennel. Being a small and popular breed, you could risk having your Pomeranian stolen from you in the night. It is much easier to steal an animal the size of a Pomeranian than a Bernese Mountain Dog or a Cane Corso, for example. Your pooch could also get into a fight with stray cats. The Pomeranian is a good alarm dog, but not big or strong enough to be a watchdog. For their safety and your peace of mind, always keep your Pomeranian inside your home, near you.
