Hi, I'm Robyn O.
Hi, I'm Robyn from Pomfire Pomeranians! We are just starting our entry into the world of Pomeranians, but have been an experienced breeder of Beagles for over 20 years, under the Bimberi prefix. Our mission is to breed exceptionally healthy dogs - always as pets first, but also for the show ring to promote the breed (and we have a lot of fun doing that!). Pomeranians are gorgeous, intelligent, and very trainable dogs - every interaction is a memorable one. And we especially love how therapeutic it is to comb their gorgeous coats while watching TV!

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
The first step is always choosing the correct parents, and checking their temperament before mating. We also start Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) training at three days old, and this continues right through their development. They are constantly socialised - raised in a household of people (and one cat!), but also meeting other breeds through socialisation classes through DogsACT. They are primarily indoor dogs, raised in the…
We conduct all the relevant health testing for our breed - all of our dogs have been genetically tested and have had a full breed analysis through Orivet. All our dogs are checked at least annually at the vet, with all the most vulnerable points examined (eyes, ears, etc.). Diet is also extremely important - we ensure they are eating right, evaluating the feed and seeing its impact on the dogs. All puppies will of course come wormed,…
Our pups are raised indoors for the first two weeks, and are monitored 24/7 - by us, not by a camera! - to ensure mum and pups are safe and healthy. Pomeranian babies are very delicate, so they need constant monitoring and attention. From 4-5 weeks, they start to get used to an outside environment. They are predominantly indoor dogs, but have access to our yard with a big outdoor space that has lots of options in terms of where to…
Included with our puppies
Before the pups leave, new owners are given an electronic booklet with all the details they're going to need, including emergency info, feeding, training, daily maintenance, and how to puppy-proof their home. On the day they leave, the dogs will have a familiar-smelling blanket and toys (to help them adjust to their new home), a week's worth of food, info on how to transition them to other recommended diets, and bowls.
Pomfire Pomeranians conducts 1 out of 1 core health tests which RightPaw believe are most important to conduct for the Pomeranian.
Dogs affected by patellar luxation have loose kneecaps that may pop in and out of the knee joint,…
Pomfire Pomeranians conducts 3 additional tests available for the Pomeranian.
Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy (GCL) is a genetic lysosomal storage disorder that causes neurological problems. It can affect several breeds including Cairn Terriers. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Hyperuricosuria (HUU) is a genetic disease that causes a build-up of uric acid in the urine, predisposing to painful bladder and kidney stones. It can occur in a range of breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) in dogs is a type of genetic eye disease causing deterioration of the retina and eventually, blindness. It can occur in various breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
About the Breeder
A little about us
I'm Robyn from Pomfire Pomeranians! I've been breeding dogs for over 20 years - most of my career with beagles, but now moving into Pomeranians. I've wanted to breed Pomeranians for a long time, but wanted to have the time to do it properly (their coat uptake is a lot more intensive than a beagle!). I've been working with my mentor Dot Williams for ten years, and she is an expert on the breed. We are excited to start our lines and first litters as a kennel.
Why we got involved in breeding
I've always loved animals. As a child, we had animals everywhere, and we entered into showing because we wanted to help preserve the breeds, and maintain them as they should be for their original purpose. We are a preservation breeder, and this is something we are really passionate about.
Our special touch
I believe that training can be more about the people than the dog! We want to be there for all our owners, and stay in contact with every buyer to help them on their journey. We try to have an annual catch-up with our extended puppy family, with a puppy picnic at our house for all those who are able to attend. If owners are far away, I try to put them in touch with a support mentor that I know in their area. I also love hearing about how our pups are growing, exchanging photos and keeping up to date with them.
