History of origin

Today, few people realize that these charming little creatures with a good character are descended from large and hardy northern dogs. It is believed that the ancestors of the Spitzs from ancient times lived on the territory of modern Europe in the Neolithic era. According to other studies, the birthplace of this breed is Ancient China and Egypt from the times of antiquity. Images of dogs preserved on various objects are cited as evidence. However, there is no absolutely accurate confirmation of the hypothesis of the oldest origin of Spitz, therefore the version of the North European roots deserves more confidence.

Germans began to show increased interest in the breed from the middle of the 15th century. It was then that dogs appeared, the appearance of which resembles the modern exterior of a classic Spitz dog. As a result of careful selection, a breed that later became so popular was formed. Some experts claim that residents of the German city of Württemberg made a special contribution to the development of the breed, others believe that the spitz came from Pomerania. But without a doubt, dog breeders from Germany did everything to ensure that these cute pets kept the best habits of their ancestors and acquired new good habits.

The nature and characteristics of the black Spitz

Black dogs are a dwarf spitz. In accordance with the standards in force in our country, the growth of representatives of the breed should not exceed 22 cm. North America has its own standard, according to which the dog should not exceed 26 cm. If we talk about constitution and proportions, the length of the dog corresponds to as high as 1: 1. The Pomeranian Black Spitz has a strong and dry constitution, and its decorative elegance goes well with well-developed muscles.

There are some more features characteristic of these representatives of the Pomeranian breed:

  • small head with a short tapering muzzle,
  • obliquely set eyes oblong shape
  • triangular ears with a sharp top,
  • strong neck of medium length, covered with thick hair,
  • short but strong straight back.

Dogs have a black spout and expressively painted lips, tight to the jaws. The lively expression of the eyes gives the kids a special charm. They look perky and soulful. The short, but strong back comes to an end with a magnificent tail of average length covered with thick hair. The tail is set rather high, and at the base it is turned up and forward. It seems that he lies on the back of the dog.

Black Pomeranian Spitz by nature endowed with a luxurious fur coat. Wool is a long top coat and thick undercoat. The lush and fluffy cover is located on the shoulders and neck. Hind limbs covered with voluminous “pants”. The hair on the head, ears and forepaws is slightly shorter.

This spitz has a rich color with black and lacquer tint. No other shades should be present. Only puppies can have a brownish undercoat at birth. If there were dogs with different color among the ancestors of the pet, it is likely that after the first shedding of the black puppy, the coat color will change.

Black dogs, like any other type of Pomeranian, have a cheerful character. With these gentle and good-natured pets you definitely will not be bored. Active and restless, they are ready to run and play endlessly. For a dog of this breed it is unbearably long to be alone. You will have to postpone personal affairs and devote as much time as possible to this charming baby.

Despite the fact that the spitz dog is a miniature and funny dog, it is a real guard in the shower. If the owner is in any danger, the pet will protect it to the last. The only caveat: a small spitz is not able to really assess their size and capabilities. He is ready to resist any opponent, even if he surpasses his growth and strength. Going for a walk, be especially careful and try to avoid contact with potential opponents.

Training and care for a pet

Training plays a huge role in shaping the character and habits of the pet. You can begin to train a puppy from the age of one month. Be sure to encourage your kid for success, treating him with his favorite delicacy. In general, oranges are quite easy to educate. Surely you do not even have to scold them for self-indulgence: the dog adequately perceives commands. A strict enough look so that your passionate dog will return to the established framework of behavior.

Black Pomeranian pet is considered a long-liver. With proper care and normal conditions of detention, he can live from 14 to 20 years. Feeding pomeranians must be treated with special attention, because it is from this factor that the health of the pet depends.

Experts distinguish three types of feeding dogs:

  • natural,
  • mixed,
  • Ready dry food.

It is not necessary to sharply transfer the pet from one type of feed to another. Spitz does not perceive milk at all, but low-fat cheese will be his favorite delicacy.

It is important to ensure that the body regularly receives the required amount of minerals and nutrients. For this is used top dressing. Every puppy and adult dog should have protein, fats, carbohydrates, water, minerals, and biologically active substances on the menu every day.

There is a list of products that should not be offered to the dog categorically: potatoes, beets, beans, flour and confectionery products, sausage, tubular bones, pork. Under the ban, all spicy, salted and smoked.

Spitz dogs, like all purebred dogs, are prone to disease. Most often this breed has problems with teeth. The fact is that milk teeth of an orange have too long roots. And when it comes time to change them to the root, the pet may experience discomfort. In this situation it is better to contact the vet. There are problems in dogs and with the digestive tract. That is why it is so important to monitor their diet.

Bathe oranges no more than once a month. If heavily soiled, dry dog ​​shampoo can be used. Because of the thick coat, the dog must be combed at least twice a week. In order for your dog to always remain healthy and cheerful, it is important to carefully monitor its physical condition, appearance and mood.

Description and characteristics

The charming dogs have acquired their name thanks to the notorious historical district on the Baltic coast of Spitsbergen. However, the exact location of the appearance of Spitz was not possible to track. Many dog ​​breeders are confident that for the first time fluffy creatures were spotted in the north of Europe, from where the German spitz actually come from. Widespread breed reached in the 18th century. It is interesting that at that period the Spitz were for the most part pets of ordinary people and only after some time became the favorites of aristocratic families.

A bit of history. Since 1960, the Spitz gave way to the Pekingese, who seized the love and delight of Europeans, arriving from China. The Queen of England, Victoria, who ascended the throne, helped the Spitz to reclaim the fame - the dogs of this breed were considered her favorites. Gradually, the Spitz caught the attention of the Kennel Club of England. Breeders increasingly sought to create even more miniature individuals, because at that time there was a certain weight limit for participants of dog shows.

Spitz dogs are very mobile and playful dogs. Get along great with people, love children. Puppies easily adapt to the way of life of new owners, and if necessary, they can do without a walk for a long time and defend a tray. Shpitsev is distinguished by its flexible temper and obedience.

As for the interaction with other pets, everything is somewhat more complicated. In general, the spitz-dogs are quite peaceful and ready to accept almost any animal as companions, with the exception of cats - they dislike them. At the same time, the Spitz will clearly delimit the space, and will not allow outsiders to invade their territory.

There are 2 main species of dogs of this breed: Pomeranian and German Spitz.

Pomeranian spitz

Charming creatures resembling cubs or cubs (for this reason they are also called bear-type dogs).

Standard thoroughbred spitz weighs no more than 3 kg and should not grow more than 23 cm. The color of oranges is the most diverse: white, black and tan, reddish, beige, sandy, grayish. The hair of individuals of this breed is straight and hard, with a soft undercoat under it. A purebred dog's muzzle should not be too pointed or wide. Spitz's ears must always be standing and have a triangular shape. The presence of hanging ears is a sign of a defective individual. A small tail forms a perky little ring, clinging to the back of the animal.

German Spitz

Немецкий шпиц — своеобразное сочетательное понятие для нескольких разновидностей породы, причем каждая «ветвь» разводится и выставляется на соревнованиях отдельно. Зачастую в помете появляются излишне маленькие или, напротив, крупные щенки. В таких случаях молодняк проходит оценку экспертов и при необходимости родословную изменяют с учетом особенностей размеров конкретных особей.

К сведению. The concept of "Spitz" (including German) is used to refer to all animals of the spitz-shaped type. These creatures are distinguished by a pointed muzzle, erect ears, small eyes and a tail thrown back toward the back.

Black German Spitz is easily distinguishable from its Pomeranian counterpart, but for convenience, both breeds are termed as a short term. Going into the depths of breed differences - the case of the jury of dog shows. For admirers of charming animals, it is enough to know - a miniature "bear cub", fingering with its strong plump legs - an orange. A medium sized dog with gorgeous hair and long, graceful legs is a German Spitz.

Speaking about the standard indicators of the breed, it is necessary to take into account the different types of Spitz dogs:

  • Wolfspitz - 43-55 cm, 25-30 kg,
  • big spitz - 8-12 kg, 17-20 kg, 42-50 cm,
  • middle spitz - 30-38 cm,
  • small spitz - 4.5 kg, 23-29 cm.

The head of a Spitz dog is medium in size, the roll from the forehead to the face is clearly visible.

The muzzle is shorter than the forehead, on it are black lips. Teeth small, sharp.

Triangular erect ears are located close to each other.

The neck is strong, gives the impression of short due to the density of the hair of the animal.

The chest is massive and wide.

Paws straight, are parallel to each other.

The high tail is medium sized.

Features of care for dogs of bear type

Blooming appearance and health Spitz depends on the thoroughness of care. The main feature of Spitz dogs and their dignity is, of course, wool. It should be soft, thick and shiny. Of course, such a cover requires careful care, not too, however, difficult. Every 4 days the dog needs to be combed with a special brush and a regular comb.

Council Pomeranian spitz-dogs do not need to be bathed often, only in the case of heavy pollution and during periods of molting. Daily combing is also not necessary - it can deprive the animal of the undercoat.

Teeth of babies need careful care - they should be regularly cleaned with a special brush and paste.

You also need to carefully monitor the condition of the ears and eyes of Spitzs - they are inspected weekly and, if necessary, cleaned with a tampon moistened with boiled water.

What to feed dogs breed Spitz

Buying a dog from the breeder, you should ask about the feeding habits of the animal. Subsequently, dramatically change this diet should not be. If the transition is inevitable, a new type of food should be introduced into the diet of Spitz in stages, in small portions. The entire transition period should not exceed 7-10 days.

If the owner chooses dry food as the basis for his pet's ration, you should definitely choose only premium brands. The composition of the delicacy must necessarily include proteins. Also in the feed must be present vitamins.

You can diversify the spitz diet with natural products (meat, vegetables, fruits, dairy products).

And the products from the following list will not only be useless, but they can also do significant harm:

  • sausage and smoked products,
  • sweets,
  • too salty food.

Council Do not feed Spitz food from the common table. Adults should not be given whole milk, cabbage and legumes - they can cause intestinal problems. Spitz food should not be too cold or hot.

Walking the Pomeranian Spitz

This is one of the most playful and active breeds.. Pomeranets is aimed at new impressions and communication, therefore it needs daily walks in the open air, games and moderate physical exertion.

Arguments in favor of regular walks in the fresh air:

  • pet easier to adapt to the outside world,
  • learns to cope with the need outside the walls of the apartment,
  • The exercise has a positive effect on the metabolism and blood circulation of the animal.

Before going outside, give the puppy the necessary vaccinations and maintain a 2-week quarantine so as not to worry about possible infections.

It is interesting! Remember that the lack of walks (along with poor nutrition) directly affects the health of oranges, especially men, as they are prone to urolithiasis.

An adult Pomeranian Spitz is walked 2–3 times a day, spending at least 2 hours on it. Tune in to continuous movement, as the dog will not let you stagnate in one place.

Diet, diet

The puppy is fed at regular time intervals, in a permanent place and from the selected dishes, going from 5 meals a day (2 months) to 2 times a day, as soon as he is 8 months old.

Approximate diet of the Pomeranian Spitz in 2-3 months:

  • 1 meal - boiled fish with rice / buckwheat, vegetables, greens and vegetable oil,
  • 2 - low-fat cottage cheese or kefir,
  • 3 - boiled poultry meat, for example, skinless breast,
  • 4 - vegetables (grated carrot / apple with a tsp of vegetable oil),
  • 5 feeding (closer to sleep) - raw beef (chopped and scalded) with vegetable stew.

Both small and adult orange should not be given pieces from the table, including sweets, sausages and sausages, muffins, smoked meat and pickles. Fatty mutton / pork, as well as tubular bones of a rabbit and poultry are excluded from the diet. After 7 months, the Pomeranian Spitz is transferred to a full diet, consisting of:

  • fresh meat (with the exception of pork) and offal,
  • sea ​​fish (boiled and boneless),
  • porridge based on rice, rolled oats and buckwheat (about 10% of the daily ration),
  • turkey and chicken (skinned),
  • fermented milk products - cottage cheese is not fattier than 9% and kefir,
  • vegetables - carrots, fruits (ripe and dry),
  • any vegetable oil.

Do not spoil and do not overfeed orange, otherwise it will grow fat. When refusing food, do not replace it with something more tasty, but simply wait until the dog is hungry.

Upbringing and training

Pomeranian, despite its ridiculous size, is very ambitious and obstinate, therefore, training for good manners begins in early childhood.

Important! The desire to dominate (at home and on the street) is more typical of males, and it is for them who must immediately be shown who in your family "flock" is an alpha male.

The first thing you need to teach your pet is to recognize your name. He is obliged to respond to it before your first joint walk takes place. The fastening of the nickname is easiest when feeding. By the first half of the year, the Pomeranian Spitz can perform a number of basic commands, including:

  • "To me" and "Place",
  • "Near" - for walking in crowded places,
  • "Fu" - to be missed on the street, horrible,
  • "Sit" - is considered a transition team
  • "Aport" is a game team that every orange must master.

Any unmistakable pet action is encouraged by praise, stroking and refreshments. By the way, the Pomeranian Spitz often learns only to please its owner. Training should be systematic, without long breaks between them, otherwise the dog will forget all the material covered.

Care and hygiene

While the puppy does not leave the house, teach him to the tray, where are absorbent napkins or newspaper. The learning process will be short if you take your pet to the toilet after waking up and each feeding. Puddle in the wrong place is not a reason for abuse.

Pretend that you did not notice it and continue to carry the puppy to the tray, praising after successful emptying. Greatest concern will require printed wool orange. Comb it out every day to avoid tangling and dog hair flying around the apartment.

For the care of wool you will need

  • big soft puhoderka
  • metal combs (with rare and frequent teeth),
  • thinning scissors (one-sided),
  • scissors with blunt ends (they cut the hairs on the ears, paws and near the anus).

To facilitate combing, which always start from the head, spray the wool (divided into strands) with a spray of tangles or water.

Important! When washing, put cotton wool in dog ears and use shampoos for long-haired breeds. It is better to dry the oranges with a hairdryer: they have too thick, long-drying hair. If you refuse a hair dryer, the dog may catch a cold, and the hair will be tied into mats.

Give the grooming to the show dog a groomer - there are nuances known only to professionals. If the dog does not grind off claws in a natural way, trim them yourself, not forgetting to file. Ears are cleaned with a cotton pad with a decoction of chamomile, eyes - with boiled water. Once every three months, tartar is removed and teeth are brushed with animal paste.

Spitz vaccination

When purchasing a Pomeranian spitz-dog, you receive from the breeder a package of documents, including a veterinary passport with a list of vaccinations made. As a rule, the first comprehensive vaccination of oranges put in 2 months, conducting revaccination in 3 months, as well as inoculating at 6-7 months of age (after changing teeth). Adult animals after 12 months are vaccinated annually. Routine immunization is designed to protect against such infectious diseases as:

  • hepatitis,
  • coronavirus,
  • leptospirosis,
  • distemper
  • gastroenteritis,
  • adenovirus.

Before each vaccination de-worming is required. But the decision on vaccination is always taken by the doctor, given the dog's state of health.

Spitz attitude to children

Against the background of most breeds, the Pomeranian Spitz looks like a funny soft toy that you want to squeeze endlessly. That is why some parents think that an orange will become an ideal friend to their child, but this is a false conclusion. A serious breeder will never recommend the Pomeranian Spitz to families with small children.

Of course, the puppy will willingly play with the little ones, but both sides are not aware of the danger of such close contact. If you take a puppy in your arms, he will try to wriggle out and jump out of them, and the child will most likely not hold him. There are two possible scenarios, but both with an unfavorable outcome for the dog. She either falls to the floor, or feels extremely painful in close childhood embraces.

It is interesting! Spitz dogs, like all dogs, do not know how to properly fall from a height, and puppies are in the zone of increased risk. They are significantly injured, just slipping out of children's hands or jumping off the couch.

Unfortunately, not all parents are able to control several nonsense (his and spitz) at the same time, preventing dangerous fun immediately. Often it is in families where babies grow up, oranges feel particularly uncomfortable, which translates into neurosis: dogs become not only irritable, but also angry. It is better, nevertheless, to take the Pomeranian spitz-dog, when the child enters a conscious age, allowing him to measure the strength and its consequences for the dog's organism.

Cost of keeping spitz

Spending is divided into one-time, regular and periodical, but to calculate the total amount of content is quite difficult - it depends on many factors, including the region, the store (where you will buy accessories), health and even the exhibition claims of the dog. One-time costs include the purchase of utensils, toys and ammunition..

It will also be interesting:

Immediately buy a basket wider (for growth) - give 600–1000 rubles, 5 toys will cost 500 rubles, cups for food / water - from 500 to 1500 rubles. Box-carrying costs about 1,5 thousand rubles, a leather collar - 200 rubles plus a leash-roulette (7-meter costs about 300 rubles). You need to buy a couple of combs (this is another 500 rubles), an antistatic (350 rubles) and a nail clipper for 250 rubles.

Important! Regular expenditure - toothpaste (about 250 rubles with a brush) and shampoos. It is necessary to wash the orange once a month. If you are going to have a haircut in the salon, prepare about 1.8–2 thousand rubles. Rain overalls cost from 700 to 1500 rubles (you can sew at home).

The cost of feed per month - from 700 to 1000 rubles. With the finished diet, vitamins are not required. Go to obedience courses for decorative breeds - pay 500 rubles per lesson. One-time, but expensive event (up to 5 thousand rubles) - sterilization / castration, then vaccination and visits to the doctor (if necessary). The fee for taking / medication depends on the city and is often quite substantial (1-2 thousand rubles).

If your spitz is participating in exhibitions - these are additional allocations that will go to pay registration fees, groomer services, transportation to the place and not only. In general, as the owners of the Pomeranian Spitz claim, the largest funds are required for the initial arrangement of the dog's life; subsequently, it will be necessary to buy more food, toys and shampoos (rarely).

Rules for the care of the Pomeranian Spitz

The skin of this breed of dogs dry enoughtherefore, it is often contraindicated to bathe them. In this case, the appearance of the wool is strongly influenced by correct combing, and not bathing. Due to the thick vertically located undercoat, the hair of the Pomeranian spitz-dog looks attractive and requires special care. It should be noted that intensive combing of wool is recommended only during active molting.

For the rest of the time, it is necessary to do this with the utmost care so that the guard coat does not lose its support, due to which the dog seems like a fluffy bundle of happiness. After water procedures, puppy hair is desirable dry with a special hairdryer. This will make the Pomeranian dog even more beautiful and shorten the drying procedure.

It is very important to remember to regularly trim the claws of such a breed of dogs, since growing up, they can deform the paws and change the gait of the animal for the worse. For this, the edges of the dog's claws are very carefully bitten off with special nippers so as not to touch the soft tissues and not to hurt the puppy, which he will remember for a very long time.

It is advisable to accustom these procedures to the Pomeranian Spitz even at puppyhood. This will save the pet from the fear of water treatments, blow-drying and other beauty-guiding events. The dog will learn to endure such procedures, albeit not with joy, but at least with patience.

Proper dog maintenance - balanced nutrition

The personal hygiene activities of the Pomeranian Spitz are quite important, but in the foreground for a puppy's health is nutrition. When calculating the optimal portion for a pet there is no particular difficulty. It is just necessary to proceed from the average data depending on the feed and the weight of the animal.

It is very important to monitor the physical shape of the pet and how it behaves. If the dog is active and vigorous, this means that she is full, if she is hungry after eating, then the dosage of the feed slightly increases. Wherein you can not overfeed puppybut to keep him half starved is unacceptable.

The Pomeranian spitz-dog, as well as its larger relatives, needs the content in the diet of meat, which is given in both raw and boiled form. In addition to meat products for dogs, the following will be helpful:

  • various cereals in boiled form,
  • products containing cottage cheese,
  • dairy products.

You can treat your puppy with freshly prepared omelet or dried apricots and prunes. Spitz is also suitable for dry food, which the animal learns gradually. In most cases, it is easier to transfer a dog from natural products to dry food, and not vice versa. A puppy who grew up often refuses to take natural products on ready-made feed.

Features of spitz dog training

Training a puppy is not so difficult and depends entirely on the owner of the dog, who must persevere in the development of a team. Although this breed does not require the study of all existing teams, but the main ones that are found every day are simply necessary. Pomeranian spitz-dog can even train a child over 9 years old, but always in the presence of an adult.

This breed of dogs is very clever, and the animal quickly understands what is wanted of him. To wean the Pomeranian Spitz to gnaw shoes or to relieve the need in the wrong place is very simple. The only thing you need to show perseverance and perseverance in this matter. You should not abandon the dog if the person does not have enough knowledge in the training and education of the Spitz.
