"Taking out Hard Knots"
I have found using a product called "ShowSheen" a Showring
shine original hair polish and de-tangler product that is often
used on horses can also be used on Maltese. This ShowSheen's
original formula has been enriched with pro-vitamins and silk
proteins to strengthen hair and give it a lustrous, healthy, shine, a
lasting shine that lasts for a full week.
This product will help you reduce your amount of work time in half
getting out all the tangles from your Maltese puppy. After using
this you might want to bathe your puppy as it may make your
Maltese hair too greasy.
I prefer to use
Oatmeal Puppy Shampoo
Tear - Free
Natural colloidal oatmeal
Moisturizes for 24 hours
These products are available at most local store
It is very important to brush your Maltese every day if possible.
When brushing out your puppies hair
knots start from the ends of the hair
gently working towards the body
taking a little bit of hair at a time.
With the hard knots soak the hard knots with
ShowSheen to make it easier to remove.
"Remove Hair From Inside of the Ears"
It is Important to Keep the Hair out of the inner ear
to make sure that the ears stay nice and dry
to avoid ear infection and facial eye stain,
"Bathing Your Maltese"
Jhirmack Silver Plus Brightening Shampoo
is a great Shampoo for whitening the hair...
I love it!
test the water first while poring water into the sink or bath tub
make sure it’s at the right temperature then shampoo.
Silver Plus will not turn your Maltese blue.
Then rinse well with warm water removing all of the dirty soapy
water leaving your puppy beautiful white and squeaky clean.
For every day use I would recommend Oatmeal shampoo or
Pantene Prov Shampoo & Conditioner.
Refill the sink/tub again with
warm water adding a few drops of Neutrogena Body Oil
with your favorite conditioner
in clean warm water. Remove your Maltese puppy and towel dry
completely removing as much water as possible ... Don’t
forget to dry out their ears!
Comb or brush thoroughly gently brush

the Maltese hair look and feel silky, smooth and shiny, easier to
De-tangle, without weighing the hair down. I always use this oil to
keep the skin soft and from drying out from the summer heat or
"New Born Puppies Do Not Need to be Bathe"
Puppies do not need to be bathed. They are cleaned up by their
mother ever so often.
If you have to clean them up, I would use an
unscented soft baby wipes and warm water.
"Affordable Dog Shampoo and Conditioner"
Shampoos and conditioners I would recommend would be
Oatmeal Puppy Shampoo, Jhirmack Silver Plus
Brightening shampoo, Mane ’n Tail or
Pantene. If you’re Maltese scratches always use
oatmeal shampoo. These products
are affordable safe to use on your Maltese.
"For professional dog shampoo, conditioner"
I recommend Pure Paws, #1 All System,
Bio-Groom, Coat Handler
and Crown Royal.
"Keep Hair Trimmed Around Potty Area"
This is very important. What happens is when you don't trim the
hair around the potty area it becomes matted and poop will
become compacted on the rear. This is a painful
thing and requires soaking in warm water and clipping the hair
away. You might have to apply some kind of Ointment like
Neosporin, Desitin or coconut oil to heal and soften the area.
Please take notice this can happen anytime to any dog or puppy
that has long hair. Just raise that tail and keep an eye on it!
Good Luck and have fun with your new baby puppy.
