Maltese (Comprehensive Owner's Guide)

Flowing strands of pure white silk adorn the diminutive Maltese, whose dark eyes reveal the breed’s sweet nature and intelligent ways. The Maltese reigns as the most perfect of the Toy breeds, sailing effortlessly in his glorious floor-length coat, proudly carrying his aristocratic head topped by a well-placed bow. More than a priceless work of art decorating his owner’s home, the Maltese is a loving, close-bonding companion dog who lives to be near his owner and share his life with his chosen mistress or master. Written by breed scholar and Toy dog expert, Juliette Cunliffe, this colorful introductory guide provides a concise account of the breed’s history in Europe, as well as discussions of breed characteristics and standard, puppy selection, feeding, coat care and grooming, training, preventative health care and showing. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup’s arrival, housebreaking and preventing puppy problems. In addit

    This book has everything you need to know about the Bloodhound breed. It shows pictures of how to take care of your Bloodhound ect…. I bought this book to learn more about the breed and to train my Bloodhound to track game, and it has worked perfectly for my needs. The only thing they don’t really mention in this book is how serious the ear problem is for Bloodhounds. My Bloodhound for example needs her ears cleaned about every 3 days. If you don’t clean their ears that often they will get a really bad ear infection and the only way to get it out is surgery, around $500.00 worth. They are a very high maintenance animal but are well worth the effort.

    This is my favorite of several books I have read on this breed. I am a soon-to-be bloodhound owner, and this book combined good advise with beautiful pictures. Also, unlike some other books this book stays strictly about the topic with no generic filler.

    VERY informative book for the money. Of the three bloodhound books purchased this month, one was worthless, one was a little pricey, and this one was the best value.

    This review is from: Maltese (Comprehensive Owner’s Guide) (Hardcover)

    Though she steadfastly guards her own privacy, Juliette Cunliffe has established a reputation as one of the world’s great experts on toy and rare breeds. MALTESE, which she wrote for the Kennel Club Dog Breed Series, is a fine example of her work. Perhaps not as carefully researched as PUG or SHAR PEI, two of her other classic works, the love is obvious as you turn over the pages of her book. She cares for the humble Maltese, with its so-called “bridal veil” of white fur that tumbles over its brow and forms a fringe over its cute little black eyes, eyes which sparkle with affection and aristocratic breeding. On the other hand, you never get the feeling that Cunliffe has actually owned a Maltese herself, whereas her feeling for the Bichon Frise emanates throughout her handbook BICHON FRISE and the KING CHARLES SPANIEL book has a similar warmth to it which is oddly lacking in MALTESE.

    She is also very good at the racing dogs and her book on WHIPPER and GREYHOUND have some good tips in them. Of course the little Maltese will never be a race dog. His heart is closer to the ground! And once you own one, as she admits from watching friends with Maltese breeding, you don’t give your heart easily to any other breed no matter how handsome or lordly.
