Question – Is Artificial Insemination Always Required When Pomsky Breeding?
If you’ve been looking to buy a Pomsky you have probably seen the words artificial insemination when describing how their are bred. So when asked is Artificial Insemination always required when Pomsky breeding the short answer is no. The general answer is “it depends”. Let’s dive into the reasons for this.
Pomeranian to Siberian Husky
Artificial insemination is usually necessary because successful Pomsky breeding is rare. This is due to the fact that ideally a male Pomeranian would need to mate with a female Siberian Husky. Because of the large size difference the gender roles are a must. The size issue presents another dilemma.
Artificial insemination is required if you are breeding a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian for safety reasons as well as successful breeding rates. So if asked is artificial insemination required when breeding Pomskies in this scenario the answer is yes. Let’s move on to why artificial insemination isn’t required.
Pomsky to Pomsky
The Pomsky is a new breed and this type of breeding has only rarely been claimed. Currently the only one of our breeders to succesfully breed a Pomsky with a Pomsky is Vaca Valley Pomskies. As the Pomsky breed becomes more popular you will see this becoming the ideal and normal breeding method. There are several benifits to artificial insemination however. Artificial insemination for canines is much safer and stress free regardless of the breed.
The cost in the breeding process of Pomskies tends to be higher in price due to artificial insemination. When naturally breedings become the norm through Pomsky to Pomsky you may just see a price drop in the breed. This is likely a long time off as the still aren’t even recognized by the AKC and too rare to have “normal” breeding practices. I’m sure many potential Pomsky owners will be happy when the pricing point is lower and more Pomsky puppies are available!
When asked if artificial insemination is always required when breeding Pomskies the answer is really “it depends”. The current popular Pomsky breeding practice is a male Pomeranian and a female Siberian Husky which requires artificial insemination. There have been successful Pomsky to Pomsky breedings but are few and far in between.
