While Pomeranians do require frequent brushing and grooming, they are a great breed for those looking for an independent companion that do fine when left alone. Pomeranians are a very active breed. However, since they are known for their petite size (around 10 pounds), they do well in small spaces. This breed loves to communicate so you can expect barking and a variety of other sounds, but this can be combated with some good housetraining. They are also known for being extremely smart, quickly picking up on tricks and commands.
