Purina - Pro Plan Focus

One of the most common question we are asked by new Pomsky owners is "What food should I buy for my Pomsky?" We recommend Purina Pro Plan Focus. This recommendation comes from Cait of Snowoof Pomskies. Here is what Cait said about the Pomsky Diet: My fall-back brand is Purina Pro Plan Focus - their new line of foods that came out in the last year or so is incredibly well backed by research and really well-liked by people I respect. Cait clarified that there is no one single best food. She said: The best food for a Pomsky is a food that works for that individual Pomsky. The most important factor to me is a dog food with a solid, meat-protein-focused ingredient list that I can purchase consistently that comes from a company with good quality control- no companies who outsource their food production for me! There are some breed-specific concerns with some Siberians (zinc deficiency) but they're rare even in Sibes, so while pet owners should be aware, they shouldn't rule an owner's choices. You can see all of our recommended food in our blog Pomsky Diet – Best Dog Food For The Pomsky Breed.

Zukes - Mini Training Treats

Zukes mini dog treats are a must for new Pomsky owners. They are small enough that you don't overfeed your puppy, but tasty enough that your Pomsky will be wanting more. These are the treats I use for training, perfect for grabbing a handful to last for 10-15 minutes in a training session. You can see all of our recommended treats in our blog Best Dog Treats For The Pomsky Breed.

We highly recommend Zukes mini dog treats. They are small enough that you don't over feed your puppy, but tasty enough that your Pomsky will be wanting more. These are the treats I use for training, perfect for grabbing a handful to last for 10-15 minutes in a training session.

These will get you the most bang for your buck, these are the treats I use. 

Here is Zuke’s description: Perfectly sized for use as a training reward, these tasty treats let you congratulate him for a job well done whenever the timing is right. Each variety of Zuke's Mini Naturals dog treats is made with high-quality protein, wholefood berries and savory herbs with no corn, wheat or soy, so you make your canine companion's taste buds sing at snack time.

Cait of Snowoof Pomskies recommends these treats as well. Here is what Cait had to say about Pomsky treats: For treats, the most important factor to me is size. We clicker train, and a 'morsel' treat for a small pomsky puppy is typically VERY small- about half the size of a lentil! Treats that are either already very small, soft enough to break up easily, and don't crumble to treat-dust are a hit with us! Zukes Mini Naturals are one brand that we use fairly regularly, as well as freeze-dried liver and chicken breast, tiny silvers of string cheese, and canned pate-style dog food in a tube that allows us to squeeze out just a tiny lick as a reward.

Vanessa of Archangel Pomsky also recommends Zukes. Here is what Vanessa had to say about Pomsky treats:

At ArchAngel Pomskies we use zukes mines, and pet botanicals for our main training treats, they are just the right size to do a training session.

PetSafe - Easy Walk Dog Harness

Pomskies love to pull. If this is your first Pomsky, you are in for a treat. Once they are big enough, they will pull you all over the road. We highly recommend the easy walk harness by PetSafe. This is the harness we use, its the one I recommend first to all Pomsky owners. Pomskies, much like Huskies, love to pull when walking on leash. The easy walk harness deters pulling. Unlike traditional dog harnesses, the front leash attachment of the Easy Walk Harness steers your dog to your side to reduce or stop leash pulling. You can see all of our recommended treats in our blog Best Dog Harness For The Pomsky Breed.

Easy to fit and comfortable to wear, the Easy Walk Harness makes walking enjoyable for you and your dog. The front-chest leash attachment helps you steer your dog to the side and redirect his attention toward you. The chest strap rests across your dog’s chest instead of putting pressure on the delicate throat, so there’s no choking or gagging. Now you can take the lead and enjoy the freedom of stress-free walks.

Pet Zone - IQ Treat Ball

Pomskies are full of energy. You are going to need some engagement toys. OurPets IQ Treat Ball is my favorite engagement toy. Fill it up with kibble or training treats and let your Pomsky ware off some energy trying to get the treats out of the ball. This is a great energy management toy. I used this one for my puppies, highly recommend it. You can see all of our recommended engagement toys in our blog Best Engagement Toys For Pomskies.

Benebone - Wishbone Chew Toy

Your Pomsky is going to chew. Coming into your home, they will be chewing right away. And it's going to last for MONTHS. You need some chew toys. My dogs love the Benebone products. Here is one that I love (and my dogs love). It's the Benebone wishbone chew toy. It is a tough hard nylon material that cannot break (no matter how hard your Pomsky may try) so your pup cannot ingest the material. Also, it's flavored!  You can see all of our recommended chew toys in our blog Best Pomsky Chew Toys.

My dogs love the Benebone products. Here is one that I love (and my dogs love). It is a tough hard nylon material that cannot break (no matter how hard your Pomsky may try) so your pup cannot ingest the material. Also its flavored! You can view this on Amazon here.

Here is the description: At Benebone, we started with the premise that dogs experience scent and flavor in a way we can’t even grasp. So, we ditched the neon colors and loud squeaks. Inspired by the dog’s powerful sense of smell, we developed a long-lasting durable chew that’s jam-packed with real flavor. Once your dog takes a bite of our USA-made chews, he’ll be hooked.


Brutus & Barnaby - Dehydrated Sweet Potato Chews

Get some chew treats for your pup. I personally like the Brutus & Barnaby dehydrated sweet potato chews. This is one of my personal recommendations. These dehydrated sweet potato chews are healthy, organic, and dogs love them. You can see all of our recommended chew treats in our blog Best Dog Chew Treats For The Pomsky Breed.

This is one of my personal recommendations. These dehydrated sweet potato chews are healthy, organic, and dogs love them.

I like the Brutus & Barnaby brand. Here is what they had to say about the sweet potato treats: These All Natural Dehydrated Sweet Potato Slices are the best healthy snack for your dog. Sourced in North America these thick cut treats are ideal for a dog that would benefit from a lower fat, low glycemic index, vitamin packed treat.

  • 100% GUARANTEE as with all Brutus & Barnaby's products we back them with a money back guarantee no questions asked. These Sweet Potato's are perfect for the teething puppy or the senior dog on a diet
  • DEHYDRATED SWEET POTATO PRESERVES NATURAL ANTI-OXIDANTS, source of natures vitamins and minerals help complete your dogs nutrient needs without supplements- these are simply the best healthy snack or training reward.
  • THICK CUT and so can occupy your dogs time, no guilt giving your dog this treat often as there is zero fat, no added sugar, fiber provided by natural potato skins helps balance blood sugar levels so can be good for senior diabetic dogs. Can easily be cut or torn into smaller strips or chunks.
  • GLUTEN FREE, GRAIN FREE, easier to digest and can be great for dogs that may be allergic to other things. Excellent component to those who's dogs are on a raw food diet

FURminator - Deshedding Tool

Pomskies shed. You probably know that by now. You will need a good shedding brush. We recommend the FURminator Deshedding Tool. I've used a couple over the years, but this one by far worked best for me. This one is specifically designed for medium-sized dogs with long hair. Designed especially for dogs that weigh 25 to 50 pounds. It's designed to remove loose hair and reach through the topcoat to remove loose undercoat hair without cutting the skin or damaging the topcoat. You can see all of our recommended shedding tools in our blog Best Best Shedding Brushes For Pomskies.

FURminator professional-grade grooming solutions make the pet owner’s home happier by dramatically reducing loose hair from the undercoat. Our deshedding tools, grooming tools and hair solutions offer a grooming regimen catered to any dog or cat. The FURminator undercoat deshedding tool for dogs reduces loose hair from shedding up to 90 percent with regular use and helps keep the coat dirt- and debris-free. The tool is specially designed to reach through the topcoat to remove loose undercoat hair and undercoat without damaging the topcoat or cutting The skin (when used as directed). The ergonomic handle makes grooming easy, and the Furejector button releases hair with ease. The curved edge conforms to your pet’s natural build and shape for comfort. Use weekly on dogs with double coats. This tool is for small dogs with short hair. Brushing and combing are not the same as undercoat deshedding. FURminator undercoat deshedding tool removes significantly more loose hair than a standard comb. Undercoat deshedding removes most loose hair before your pet has a chance to shed it on the surfaces of your home! Use FURminator pet products for professional-quality, at-home grooming results as part of the FURminator Ultimate hair reduction system: brush daily to detangle and smooth fur; DeShed weekly to reduce shed hair; bathe monthly to clean and deodorize; and collect and discard loose hair as needed. FURminator offers a full line of tools, shampoos, conditioners and sprays to make sure you’re equipped for all steps of the grooming process.


Amazon Basics - Dog Crate

The best crate that we've seen is the Amazon Basics Dog Crate. It's a good simplistic option for a Pomky dog crate. I used this one with my puppies (though I didn't use it for long because they didn't need it). This one was super easy to set up, it easily folds for travel and was lightweight and easy to take from place to place. You can see all of our recommended shedding tools in our blog Best Dog Crate For The Pomsky Breed.
