Spitz grooming has two basic aspects. You will need to keep good care of his or her coat of fur and you also must pay attention to their nails. The fur will matt if not groomed correctly and nails will keep growing until they are ingrown; at that point not only will your dog be in pain and suffering but may even need surgery to fix this issue.

Spitz's are famous for their fur and they do require some extra care. Brushing your dog is very important; this will prevent the matting. It is best to brush when the fur is wet. You may bathe your Pom or you can use a spray bottle with a mixture of 90% water and 10% dog fur conditioner.
You should bathe him or her at least one time a week, more if your spitz is outside a lot. The type of dog shampoo you use is very important and human shampoo should not be used. Generic dog shampoos can dry out the fur and even cause moderate to severe itching. Please use a hypo-allergenic shampoo that will keep the fur healthy.

The dog shampoo that you use, along with the brush, will have a large impact on the healthy of your Pom's fur.

To properly brush and accomplish the goal of keeping matted hair away and maintaining a fluffy coat you must use the proper brush.
A cheap, generic one is not sufficient; Spitzs are small, fragile breeds and you need a special brush for thick, full fur. The brush should have bristles that are wide spaced to allow easier brushing and should be sized for a small breed dog. The brush you choose will have a big impact on the health of your dog's coat.


Combing and brushing each day will reduce the odds of a large matt. Why is this so important? Because if a matt cannot be worked out, it will need to be trimmed off. Doing this too often will ruin the appearance of that famous spitz fluffy coat!
Using a wide tooth comb will help you find tangles that the brush does not. Gently go over every area. Do this slowly and gently in case you do come across matted fur. Removing them properly is vital. You will find that if you brush your spitz
 every day, matts are unlikely to occur and this will save both you and your dog grooming time and frustration of matted fur.

When you brush your dog, you will want to make sure to brush all areas of the body; this even includes the fur on the paws. Although it may seem as if your spitz has one coat of hair, she has two. Lift the long layer of the top coat so that you can brush the bottom layer. Think of it as a person with layered hair; you can't always see a drastic difference in layers unless you look closely. Brush gently and use a motion of down and out away from the body. Remember, to get your spitz to look fluffy, the most important part of grooming a spitz is to brush up and out.
Trim around the anus to keep your dog clean and tidy also.
