Product Description

From the Author

Great resource for Maltese information
I was thrilled and deeply honored when Howell Book House (the premier publisher of dog books) asked me to author The Maltese edition of their Happy Healthy Pet series. The book was considerable fun for me to write. Many of the questions Maltese lover's are always asking was the basis of the book, such as: the origin of the breed, intrepretation of the standard, grooming, raising your puppy, living with a Maltese and health issues. Hopefully, you will find many of these answers in this book.

You′ll not only learn about the specific traits of your Maltese, you′ll also learn what the world′s like from your pet′s perspective; how to feed, groom and keep your pet healthy; and how to enjoy your pet through training and activities you can do together. The Maltese is written by a breed expert and includes a special chapter on training by Dr. Ian Dunbar, internationally renowned animal behaviorist, and chapters on getting active with your dog by long–time Dog Fancy magazine columnist Bardi McLennan.

5.0 out of 5 stars just what I was looking for 3 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I wanted a book about Maltese in anticipation of getting my maltese puppy in a few weeks time but did not want to pay too much so considered a used book and am thrilled with the condition - like new. Not read it all yet but it has all the contents I wanted as I have purchased a general training book on my Kindle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 15 Mar 2013
By Loriana
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For one who plans to acquire a Maltese, this books lacks in depth information. Half of the book is OK, but once it starts on training and health, it is hardly a book on Maltese, but instead a "all breeds info", that I already had.
