This dog is highly trainable as they are intelligent, quick learners, eager to please and work dogs. They are very sociable and affectionate which makes them perfect as family dogs. They get along very well with children and other house pets.
This breed's coat color usually comes in White but sometimes with patches of Gray or Yellow.
This dog's long, double coated hair needs to be brushed and combed regularly to keep it looking beautiful and tangle-free.

Suitable as a family dog, they are affectionate to their humans and very sociable that they can get along well with children as well as other house pets.

This breed needs careful grooming for their very long, double coated hair. Bathing and dry-shampooing should only be done as necessary. Be careful that they do not overheat in hot weather. Their coats should never block their vision so make sure that it does not block their eyes. This usually leads to an insecure dog.
This dog needs a firm, consistent handler that would provide them proper leadership. As a small dog, it can become a challenge to housebreak them. They also tend to be stubborn but a patient, confident, calm and assertive behavior of the handler should give this dog a stable, content and balanced life.
The Pom-Coton dogs are highly active and alert dogs. They are very well with agility skills in terms of dog sports. As long as they are taken to their long daily walks, they can do well in apartment or small space living. Play would also help drain their energy and running in a secured, fenced area but they still need to satisfy their primal instinct to walk.
