Why it’s Important to Choose the Right Harness for a Pomeranian

Pomeranians, often affectionately called "Poms," are a delightful and fluffy toy breed of dog with big personalities and luxurious coats. Despite their small size, Pomeranians have big hearts and bring immense joy to their owners. 

Originating from the Pomerania region in Central Europe, Pomeranians were bred down from larger sled-pulling dogs. Over time, they became a popular breed, especially after Queen Victoria fell in love with them and began breeding them smaller. Today, Pomeranians are cherished as companion dogs worldwide and have become increasingly popular with their adorable looks and lively nature. 

Because of their delicate size, choosing the right harness is important to ensure their comfort and safety and give you optimal control over these tiny companions.

Understanding a Pomeranian’s Energy and Exercise Needs

Pomeranians may be small in size, but they make up for it with their abundant energy and lively spirit. While it might be easy to assume small dogs don’t need regular exercise, that is untrue. That’s why it’s important to understand the breed’s energy and exercise needs to maintain their overall well-being. 

While they don't require as much exercise as larger breeds, Pomeranians still benefit from regular physical activity to keep them mentally stimulated and physically fit. One of the best ways to exercise a Pomeranian is through daily walks. Aim for at least one or two walks per day, allowing them to explore their surroundings and engage their senses. These walks should be tailored to their size and stamina, typically ranging from 15 to 30 minutes each. Remember to use a properly fitted harness to ensure their safety and comfort during walks.

The Importance of Training a Pomeranian

Just like other breeds of dogs, Pomeranians benefit from early training because it helps establish boundaries, instill good behavior, and strengthen the bond between dog and owner. Pomeranians are intelligent and eager to please, which makes them highly trainable. They also love spending time with their people, so training sessions make them as happy as snuggling with you on the couch! When you invest time and effort into training your Pom, you will have a well-behaved and happy companion.

Harnesses play a crucial role in training Pomeranians by providing control and comfort. Traditional collar and leash setups can put pressure on their delicate necks, leading to issues like tracheal collapse. Harnesses, on the other hand, distribute the pressure evenly across their chest and shoulders, reducing the risk of injury and providing better control over their movements.

Using a well-fitted harness during training sessions allows for effective communication between you and your pup. The harness serves as a connection point, allowing the owner to guide the dog's movements and redirect their attention when needed. For example, a no-pull harness with side-ring technology, like the ones offered by Joyride Harness, discourages pulling by redirecting the dog's attention to the side, promoting loose-leash walking habits.

What is the Best Pomeranian Harness?

Due to the anatomy of Pomeranians’ necks, they can be more susceptible to injury, which is why most pet parents prefer to walk their Pom on a harness instead of a flat collar. A properly-fitted Pomeranian harness should not touch the neck; instead, it should fit around the chest and evenly distribute pressure if they pull. A well-fitted harness should also be able to accommodate for Pomeranian floof and remain escape-proof. 

At Joyride Harness, we created our harness with Pomeranians in mind. Our fully-adjustable harnesses can fit the proportions and body shape of most dogs, including fluffy Poms. Additionally, with our easy-on, easy-off style, Joyride Harness does not go around your pup’s neck, enabling you to have a safer walking experience.

In addition to safety and control, we also designed our harness with comfort in mind. Pomeranians have sensitive skin, and our harnesses are lined in soft fleece to prevent chafing or irritation. 

The other benefit of Joyride Harness for toy dogs like Pomeraninas is our built-in handle. A handled harness is great for Poms because you can quickly grab them whenever necessary. Whether your pup needs a helping hand to climb up the stairs or you need to hold them back from a squirrel, you can take comfort in knowing you have control and won’t put pressure on their delicate neck. 

When it comes to exercising this spunky breed, safety and control are both important. Keep your baby safe with the best harness for Pomeranians: Joyride Harness. 


What Size Harness Should I Buy for a Pomeranian?

Most adult Poms will fit in our XS dog harness, which suits dogs between 5 and 9 pounds. If your Pomeranian or Pom mix is larger, they may fit a size small. If you’re unsure, we recommend using our size chart to find the best harness fit.

Love my harnesses!

This harness is so easy to put on on take off my dogs. The straps are wide and the harness is very well made, sturdy, and comfortable for my Pomeranian, Shorkie, and Bernese Mountain dog. I bought them a small, extra-small, and XXL respectively.

I have 3 Pomeranians and the XS fits all of them. Their weights are 5#, 6# and 8#. I also have a mini Aussie that weighs 18# and the S size harness fits her very nicely.👍�🤗😍

Exceptional product and quality. After putting on my 1 year old Pomeranian it was a pleasure walking her no more pulling. Definitely would recommend as I did to all my family and friends with fur babies ❤️💙❤️💙.

Our pups love this harness, and so do we! No fussing to put it on or take it off, even with our extra fluffy Pomeranians, Cecilia and Annabelle, the harness is easy to put on and take off without getting caught in all their hair and making it uncomfortable for them. Never thought it was possible for them to love walk time more than they did, but now they whine and cry next to their harnesses because they want to go out and walk again!
