Having a Maltese definitely has good points and bad points. Good thing: they don't shed. Bad thing: constant grooming! Since groomers feel the need to charge upwards of $50 for a haircut and bath for the Big Man, we decided we could do it
However my friends, the Pet Head, Fears for Tears Shampoo and the Furtastic Conditioner are ahhh-mazing. No joke. The conditioner makes his coat so soft and shiny, and smells so delicious. So delicious in fact, I've been tempted to try it out myself. Ok, I haven't but I've definitely thought about it. Maaaaybe in a pinch. Anyway, highly suggest this. You can purchase at your local Petsmart, Target or cutesy doggie couture boutique.
