I’m sorry, but certain dogs just look way too cute in dog clothes. Pomeranians are one such breed who really know how to rock their canine closet.
With their teddy bear-like appearance and their pocket-sized bodies, Pomeranians are like tiny furry babies just waiting to be bundled up in cute attire and toted around in dog purses.
Okay, if I’m getting a little too Paris Hilton for you, let me drop this disclaimer: Not all dogs enjoy wearing clothes and if your dog is one such dog, don’t force him to wear clothing.
Why? Because putting outfits on a Pomeranain who totally hates wearing Pomeranian clothes can cause undue anxiety, stress, fear, and even aggression.
However, many dogs don’t mind wearing dog clothing and some dogs even enjoy wearing certain types of clothes. My dog, for example, loves her cozy fleece sweater and immediately snuggles up into it and takes a nap the moment I put it on her.
The trick? I found a sweater that is comfortable and fits her just right. So, if you want your Pom to love her Pomeranian clothes, you need to do the same. And that’s where this article comes in.
If you are dying to dress your Pom up like the prince or princess they are, then this is the article for you. We are all about dog comfort and style, so we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of super cute and comfy Pomeranian clothes for your Pom that you both will be sure to love.
Let’s get started!
Is It Okay To Dress My Pomeranian In Clothing?
Small dogs like Pomeranians may actually need to wear sweaters or jackets when the weather is extra cold.
While we did touch on this briefly above, I want to reiterate that not all dogs need to wear clothes and many dogs will actually detest wearing anything other than a collar, leash and harness.
However, some dogs actually need to wear dog clothing like sweaters, jackets, and t-shirts to help protect them from the elements.
It’s true that Pomeranians are from the Spitz family and they are related to snow-savvy dogs like Huskies, however, their small size makes them more susceptible to suffering in colder weather.
That said, because of your Pomeranian’s thick, double coat, Poms can also be more susceptible to heatstroke than other small dogs if they are wearing dog clothing that isn’t breathable or comfortable in the summer months.
The trick to keeping your Pom safe, comfy, and looking cute is finding the right Pomeranian clothes for that are both comfortable and functional.
How do you do both? Let’s take a look.
Fashion Vs. Function – What Types Of Clothing Do Pomeranians Actually Need?
You can help your Pom feel more comfortable in dog clothes by ensuring the Pomeranian clothes are comfortable for her to wear.
As we discussed above, not all dogs need to wear dog clothes. However, some dogs do need to wear clothes in certain conditions. Small dogs, puppies, and senior dogs may need a little extra help staying warm in the cold. And since Pomeranians are small dogs, they fit into this category.
And while Pomeranian clothes can serve to help keep your Pomeranian cozy and warm, Pomeranian clothes can also help reduce the chances of sunburn to your Pom during the summer, especially if your Pom has recently gotten a shorter haircut.
Still, just because your Pomranian may need Pomeranian clothes doesn’t mean she will enjoy wearing them. It’s important to make sure the clothing you buy for your Pomeranina (or any dog, for that matter) is comfortable, functional, and easy for them to wear.
Let’s go over some key factors you should look for when looking for Pomeranian clothes,
What To Look For In Quality Pomeranian Clothes
Consider your Pom’s needs when picking out the best clothes for her.
When you’re on a mission to expand your Pom’s closet, make sure you take your Pomeranian into consideration.
It’s fun to dress our dogs up, but it’s important to remember that these are living, breathing creatures who may not always want to don a frilly tutu and blingy collar.
Put your Pomeranian’s comfort first by making sure you purchase Pomeranian clothes that are made with breathable materials and suited for your Pom’s body shape and size.
Try and follow measurement guidelines whenever they are available and if you aren’t sure of your Pomeranian’s exact size, always order up in size to be safe.
If you’re not sure where to begin when looking for fashionable and functional Pomeranian clothes, we’ve got you covered. Let’s go over some of our favorite Pomeranian clothes both you and your Pom are sure to adore.

The shirts are for small dogs like Poms and measure from extra small to extra large, but make sure you do your measurements to ensure the proper fit and comfort for your pooch.

Okay, so is this not the most ridiculously adorable doggy jean jacket you’ve ever seen? It’s perfect for your cool Pomeranian and ideal for those fall months when the temperatures are beginning to drop.
We love the little hood and the vintage wash of the dog jacket, but most of all we love that this jacket is designed for your dog’s comfort. It is lightweight and not too heavy, and made to allow your dog to walk comfortably and naturally.
It measures from extra small to double extra large and even comes in six different styles.
HoodDeal Plaid Dog Shirt And Bow Tie
We literally cannot get over this adorable and charming little plaid dog shirt and bow tie for Pomeranian dogs. The shirt only comes in one color, but it can work for both male and female dogs and comes in small to double extra large sizes.
It is made of 100% cotton materials and is therefore comfortable and lightweight for your Pomeranain. Best of all, it’s machine washable so it will be easy to keep clean.

The garment is best suited for small to medium sized dogs with back lengths between 8 inches to sixteen inches and sizes available in extra small to extra large.

Fitwarm Dinosaur Small Dog Pajamas
No Pomeranian dog clothing list is complete without a pair of cozy, comfy PJ’s. And since your dog is your baby, you need a pair of pajamas that are not only going to keep him snuggly and warm, but also insanely cute.
These jammies are made with a warm velvet material and are best for cold nights with your Pomeranian. They would be great for camping trips or overnight road trips when the temperatures drop.

We love this tank for when your Pomeranian has a shorter haircut and needs extra UV protection when out and about during the summer.
The shirt stretches so the fit should be comfortable, but the seller still recommends that you size up if you aren’t sure of your Pomeranina’s exact size needs. However, this is an over the head pull on shirt, so remember if your Pom doesn’t like Pomeranian clothes going over his head that this may not be the best option.

The jerseys are available in seven sizes and are made of poly-mesh, breathable material. Your dog can move and use the bathroom as usual and when the game is over, the jersey is machine washable.
Helping Your Pom Get Used To Wearing Pomeranian Clothes
Use treats and praise to help your Pom associate Pomeranian clothes with something positive.
Some Pomeranians act as if they have been wearing Pomranian clothes all their lives. Other Poms will struggle with the idea of having a shirt or dress put on their little bodies and you will have to use lots of patience to help them get used to it.
If you have a Pom dog who absolutely hates wearing Pomeranian clothes and doesn’t need to wear clothes, avoid making him wear anything that’s not necessary.
However, if it’s extra cold outside or your Pomeranian needs to wear Pomeranian clothes to help protect his body from the sun, try and work with your Pom to help make the process of wearing Pomeranian clothes easier and more pleasant for him.
If your Pom is afraid of Pomeranian clothes, that’s okay. Never scold or punish any dog for being fearful of something, as this will only make the fear and anxiety worse and can lead to other negative behaviors.
So, how can you help your Pomeranian get used to wearing Pomeranian clothes even if she hates them? First, find Pomeranian clothes that don’t have to be pulled over your Pom’s head. Most dogs hate tight clothing that has to go over their faces and ears, and this could be the root of the issue if your Pom cowers when you pull out her dog sweater.
Instead, look for garments that zip or button in the front and can be put over your dog’s body and secured at the belly. Also make sure the fabric is soft, has some stretch, and is breathable and comfortable.
Then pull out the treats. Using healthy training treats any time you introduce new Pomeranian clothes to your Pom will help her to associate the garmet with something positive.
And be patient. If you want your Pomeranian to come around and begin wearing Pomeranian clothes more regularly, the way you introduce your Pomeranian to clothing is key.
