Frequently Asked Questions

There are some very common questions asked by people regarding our Pomskys. Here you will find those questions answered below, along with directions to other pages on the website which contain more information pertaining to the questions asked.

To what size will a Pomsky grow?

The size and weight of our Pomskies varies depending on a few factors. The generation, parents’ sizes, litter size and gender all play key roles in adult size. Our F1 (First generation) Pomskies range between 10-25 lbs. Our F2 (Second Generation) Pomskies range between 10-20lbs. We are actively working towards offering Pomskies under 10lbs. More accurate estimates of the size of your new Pomsky are provided closer to 6 weeks of age. We strive to match an appropriately sized Pomsky to meet their new family’s needs and desires.

Is a Pomsky a family-safe dog? Is a Pomsky recommended for house-holds with children?

Absolutely! We selectively breed for well- rounded temperaments in our Pomskies. This results in a friendly, trustworthy Pomsky that is a gentle, child-safe dog. We have many adoptive families enjoying their Pomsky with their children, whose ages range from infancy to teenagers. Please visit our Breed page for more information on our Pomskies’ lovely personality traits.

Is a Pomsky suitable to live in an apartment? Do they require a yard?

The living quarters of a Pomsky do not need to be large. The importance of exercise and outside time come into play here. The Pomsky may live very happily in a smaller house/apartment/condominium/trailer without issue. Your Pomsky will still require daily exercise outside of the home. The Pomsky does not require a yard, as long as they are receiving adequate exercise elsewhere. Please visit our Breed page for more great information concerning the exercise needs of a Pomsky.

How much does a Pomsky shed?

The Pomsky will have minimal daily shedding. The Pomsky’s coat has a double-thickness, meaning that there is a thicker under coat and a longer over coat or guard hairs. The undercoat is shed once or twice per year. Beyond that, the Pomsky has minimal brushing requirements. Please see our Breed page for more information on the Pomsky fur coat and its maintenance.

What is the expected life span of a Pomsky?

The expected life span of a Pomsky is 12-15 years. Please note that a healthy life style for your Pomsky is crucial to this outcome. A healthy diet, proper weight management, exercise and medical care, as well as genetics and size play important roles in establishing a great quality and quantity of life for your Pomsky. Did you know that spaying and neutering your Pomsky will help increase their life expectancy? Please see our Adoptions page for more information regarding the many benefits of spaying and neutering your Pomsky.

Is the Pomsky easy to train, including house-training?

The Pomsky is intelligent and highly trainable, resulting in house training, learning of commands and new tricks being easily achieved. With appropriate training methods, dedication and teamwork; your new Pomsky will impress you before you know it. That being said, the effort that you put into your new puppy will directly reflect on how well trained your new puppy will become. An educated owner equals an educated Pomsky! Looking for training tips and advice? Visit our Info tab for our helpful guidance.

Does the Pomsky tend to bark a lot?

No. Barking or any vocalization is a learned behavior which can either be encouraged or discouraged in your new puppy. Rewarding your puppy when they are quiet, encourages barking to not become a bothersome habit. Some of our Siberian Huskies enjoy talking on command as part of a trick we have taught, such as letting out soft howls and voicing sweet nothings!
