Ideal Environment

They do well in a farm setting or an apartment. They need plenty of exercise as do most dogs that have high energy.

The Pomerat is a very energetic dog. It needs its one hour of activity and exercise daily. These activities should be divided into two or three sessions. Their activities can be in the form of walks around the neighborhood, visit to the dog park, or simply playing fetch with the ball or frisbee in the yard. They can develop behavioral changes such as digging and chewing if not exercised properly. Another habit which the owners must pay close attention to is their habit of digging the yard and trying to escape. They can adapt the apartment style of living if they have someone around and get exercised. The family must take care of Pomerat during the winters and summers as they do not like extreme climatic conditions.
