Maltese were named from where they originated, Malta, which is a small island south of Italy. This breed has roots that date back centuries. Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary adored this breed and kept them as companion dogs in their palace. The Maltese has a very established history as a quality dog that has provided many people with true loyal companionship.

Maltese have exceptional personalities and very warm and tender temperaments. This breed enjoys being around his family and enjoys engaging with them. Thanks to their non-aggressive behavior and gentle disposition, they make wonderful family pets who do well around children and other pets in the home. This breed is also used as a therapy dog due to its overall personality, demeanor, and genuine caring ways.

The Maltese has a stunning silky white coat that requires routine grooming and care. Many Maltese owners suggest a full brushing of their dog’s coat two to three times a week. Prior to brushing your puppy’s coat, apply a light spray of water or a detangling agent to his fur. This will prevent his coat from knotting and will allow a much easier and more pleasant brushing session for your dog. The Maltese also tends to do well with a bi-weekly bath and routine nail clipping. This will help your dog feel and look his best. Do not forget to clean his teeth about three times a week. Good oral hygiene is a great way to prevent health issues.

Keeping your Maltese filled with energy is important, especially in his puppy years. This is accomplished by using only quality dog food and on a set schedule. Many Maltese owners find that two cups of dog food per serving is best. These servings should be divided into twelve-hour segments. The actual amount of food you feed your dog will ultimately depend on his size and activity level.
