Affectionate, loyal, and loving, the Pomapoo is not recommended for homes with small children. They do well with dogs and other household pets they have been raised with. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time and will become destructive and bark incessantly if bored or lonely. Pomapoo's are wary of strangers and will bark to alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Depending on coat type, the Pomapoo may require frequent brushing or professional clipping. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss.
They may be prone to such health issues as hypoglycemia, patella luxation, eye infections, skin problems, epilepsy, and PRA.
The Pomapoo requires a moderate amount of exercise. It is fairly active indoors, but enjoys a daily walk or playtime outside. The Pomapoo is a good match for apartment life.
The Pomapoo is intelligent and eager to please, making it easily trained. Positive reinforcement is best; harsh training methods will likely prove counterproductive.
