Pomskies are a Pomeranian mix that has been bred with a Siberian Husky. Pomskies have become one of the most popular designer breeds around today, and they can be found in many colors and sizes. In this article, we will discuss Pomsky characteristics, Pomsky temperament, Pomskies health concerns, and how to train them.

The first thing you should know about Pomskys is their coat type. They come in three different coat types: soft plush coats (which are usually white), long-haired coats (which range from dark brown to black), or a mix of both long hair and plush fur. The second thing you should know about Pomskys is that they can live anywhere between twelve and twenty years. Pomskies are also very active dogs. They need to be taken on walks multiple times daily, or they will find something else to do like chew up furniture or dig holes in the yard. Pomskies are very intelligent dogs, so they enjoy learning tricks and playing games with their owners. Pomskies come from two different breeds that have different personalities – Pomeranians tend to be nervous, snippy little dogs whereas Siberian Huskies are calm and aloof dogs who don’t easily trust strangers. As Pomsky puppies mature into adults, you can expect them to take more of their Pomeranian parent’s personality rather than their husky parent’s personality.

Pomsky Temperament

Another Pomsky characteristic is Pomsky temperament. Pomskies are naturally friendly and energetic dogs, but they need to be socialized early on in order to prevent anti-social behaviors from developing. Pomskies are also very intelligent dogs that respond well to training, so it’s important that you train them early on with simple commands like “sit.” Pomskies typically enjoy the company of other pets and children, especially if they grow up together.

Pomsky Health Problems

Many of today’s Pomskies are bred by inexperienced Pomsky breeders who don’t understand how to properly care for their parents or ensure that they are healthy enough to reproduce. Pomskies often suffer from hypoglycemia (a condition where a dog’s blood sugar level drops too low) or PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), which is an eye disease that will eventually lead to blindness. Pomskies are also very small dogs, so their legs can break more easily than other large dog breeds. Pomsky owners should be prepared for expensive vet bills if they decide to get this breed.

Pomsky Training Requirements

Pomskies are intelligent dogs, but they aren’t easy to train because they tend to get distracted by new toys and smells while training them. Pomskies should never be allowed off-leash in public areas because even though they’re friendly with people, Pomskies will chase after anything that moves; including squirrels and cats! Pomskies have a very high prey drive despite their Pomeranian parent. Pomskies are easy to housebreak, but they may start to urinate indoors as they get older because Pomskies can be hard for them to tell when they need to go outside. Pomskies should always be kept on a leash or in a fenced area where they cannot wander off and lose track of time; Pomsky owners should expect this breed to wander off if given the opportunity. Pomskies also like getting into things (because of their curious and mischievous natures), so you’ll want secure lids on trash cans and cabinets that your Pomsky can’t open otherwise your furniture will be chewed up before you know it!

Pomskies are friendly, intelligent dogs that require a lot of training and socialization. Pomsky owners should be prepared for high vet bills because Pomskies will often suffer from hypoglycemia or PRA. Pomskies can also have antisocial behaviors if they’re not properly socialized as puppies so it’s important to train them early on with simple commands like “sit.”
