Maltese Dog Lover News & Tips

Maltese dog with baby

Fall is finally in the air and there is alot happening around here! First off, I'm sorry for not keeping up with this monthly newsletter lately, but I do have a good excuse. We just welcomed another member to our pack, our second son Conner. Here he is chilling on the couch with his big brother Disco. Fur sister Marley and brother Justin are also adjusting well to the changes.

I'm also excited to announce I've been working on creating a Maltese ebook. I noticed that there are no specific Maltese ebooks out there, so I'm creating one myself. I'm a professional Maltese dog lover and have learned alot over the years by having two of my own Maltese as well as getting feedback from the entire Maltese dog lover community through my website.

I want to include the best, most relevant information in this ebook.
Tell me what you want to know about Maltese and I'll enter you in a drawing to receive a free book. You'll also get a discount once the book is published.

Thanks so much for your continued support!

Question of the Month

Aggressive Maltese
My 4 yr old neutered male is starting to become aggressive toward my husband and me. He has never done so before and always loves everybody -- visitors too. Help! - Jacquie

This sounds like it might be frustration aggression. Dogs are emotional animals just like humans. In the same way you might snap at someone or get angry easily when you're frustrated, so do some dogs.

The key is to try to make the dog's daily routine more relaxing and remove sources of frustration as much as possible. Three things you can do right now are to use de-stress techniques, increase exercise and mental stimulation, and change the environment. Learn more about how to utilize these techniques in my upcoming Maltese dog ebook! - Katie
