Who we are

Our Practice

The tiny Maltese, 'Ye Ancient Dogge of Malta,' has been sitting in the lap of luxury since the Bible was a work in progress. Famous for their show-stopping, floor-length coat, Maltese are playful, charming, and adaptable toy companions.

Maltese are affectionate toy dogs weighing less than seven pounds, covered by a long, straight, silky coat. Beneath the all-white mantle is a compact body moving with a smooth and effortless gait. The overall picture depicts free-flowing elegance and balance. The irresistible Maltese face' with its big, dark eyes and black gumdrop nose' can conquer the most jaded sensibility. Despite their aristocratic bearing, Maltese are hardy and adaptable pets. They make alert watchdogs who are fearless in a charming toy-dog way, and they are game little athletes on the agility course. Maltese are low-shedding, long-lived, and happy to make new friends of all ages. Sometimes stubborn and willful, they respond well to rewards-based training.

Our Values

What brushes are best for the Maltese coat?

A bristle brush is a good everyday brush if the coat is kept short, and for puppies before their adult coat comes through. If you need to maintain a longer or fluffier length and keep it knot-free, you’ll a pin brush is a better choice than a bristle brush (you can still use a bristle brush to finish, but it won’t help with knot removal).

Using a pin brush, work through the coat section by section (line brushing). If you find any tangles or knots the pin brush can’t remove, use a slicker brush to ‘pat’ out the knot. Use detangler spray to make knots faster and less painful to remove. Once the coat is free of knots, you can finish with a bristle brush to condition the coat and help keep the ends from getting dry or brittle (a boar bristle brush does a great job for finishing). You can also get soft bristle brushes but they are best only for very thin coats, very sensitive skin, or a puppy’s much finer coat. They won’t help with tangles and knots.
