The Maltese has graced the laps of luxury for thousands of years. This elegant little dog comes from the now-extinct nation of Malta. As Malta was invaded and colonized, the beautiful little white dog breed spread across the world. The Maltese was never meant to be anything but a companion, and thousands of years of dedicated breeding have made a truly wonderful best friend.

These tiny dogs are unaware of their small size. They are fearless, playful, and endlessly charming. If you know somebody who doesn't like dogs, introduce them to a Maltese, and you may change their mind. Maltese are hardy and adaptable. Their fearlessness makes them good watchdogs but also will help them win over anyone. These little athletes can excel on the agility course and look truly stunning showing off their athleticism in full coat.

Maltese are truly beautiful little dogs. Their pure white coat grows continuously. When kept in show coat, the ends of their hair sweeps the ground. However, Maltese can also be clipped short for a low-maintenance and easy to clean coat. The coat is low shedding and easy to maintain with regular brushing.

Maltese can be willful, and their affection natures do not respond well to harsh training techniques. Therefore, consistent positive training is essential in order to shape your dog's behavior.

Learn how to best train for a Maltese’s willful and sometimes stubborn nature. Find out the basics of grooming this gorgeous coat. Decide what to feed and how to supplement your Maltese’s diet in order to keep them healthy well into their teens. This audiobook can guide you through every element of life with your Maltese.

nothing I already didn't know. some of it was just completely wrong! ignoring excess barking is not a way to deal with it. ridiculous. letting a puppy graze at will, completely blows up potty training. ridiculous.
