Although this breed seems easy to handle considering their small size, providing them with maltese training can be challenging especially to inexperienced pet owners. New or potential owners must be aware that like most dogs under the toy group, maltese dogs have extremely lively and playful personality hence making them hard to handle. However, this isn’t supposed to discourage you from getting a new puppy or adopting one from the local maltese rescue center. There are many ways to get positive training outcome only if you are responsible and resourceful enough to find them.

Consider these suggestions to enable you to train your furry friend without difficulty:

1. Whether you are adopting a grown dog or getting a pup that is at least eight weeks of age, start maltese training right after your new pet arrives home. Training doesn’t necessarily need to involve commands or other complex tricks. What is important during this phase is the opportunity to expose your pet to things, places and scenarios of everyday life. A pet that is correctly socialized is less likely to develop undesirable habits at the same time easier to train compared to those that are not socialized.

2. Most dogs learn by doing things regularly. Taking a walk or exercising him, feeding and toilet breaks must transpire at almost the same time everyday to help him develop a routine.

3. Stay consistent whether with your commands or the training tactics you are using. If you are using the command “come” presently, remember to use the same command in the next days to avoid confusion. The commands “come here” or “come here boy” may mean different to him. The same holds true with maltese training methods. When addressing his jumping behavior, train him to do so no matter what the situation is. He will not know the contrast between your work clothes and pajamas so permitting him to jump on you when you are dressed in your pajamas and prohibiting him from doing so when you are wearing your finest suit will potentially cause confusion.

4. Although they’re known for their intelligence, it is best to tackle one command at a time during maltese training. If he has perfected the command you are teaching him, that is the time to proceed with the next command.

5. Recognize and reward good behavior. One way to let your pet know that you are pleased with what he did is to give him rewards. It could be his favorite treat, toy, time to play or praise. However, it is essential to regulate using treats to prevent him from becoming treat-dependent.
