Studies show that owning a pet helps lower blood pressure, reduce stress and wards off the sensations of depression and lonliness.While nothing can top the love and companionship of your Maltese, there are some unpleasant behaviors that are a no-go – from howling all evening to defecating on the floor to eating your stuff while you’re not around.
If your Maltese exhibits this type of behavior, it may be misbehaving because of boredom, pent-up frustration or because of no home-training. With the right lifestyle adjustments and disciplined training, you’ll be well on our way to having a pleasant, well-behaved pet. The following suggestions will help your furry friend become better behaved:

How to Train Your Maltese:Spay or neuter

The Humane Society of the United States suggests that this common surgery should help your Maltese live longer, be more virile and improve behavior issues.

Similar to people, Malteses do get anxious, bothered and stressed out. That’s why some veterinarians advise giving your Maltese a calming product, such as pet calming spray, to help alleviate hyperactivity.
Formulated from all-natural ingredients, pet calming spray moves quickly to relieve anxiety, fear, doubt and aggression and lets antsy pets sleep through the night.

Training The Maltese:Have a workout routine

Pamper your Maltese with regularly scheduled neighborhood strolls two times per day. This will help your Maltese avoid boredom, which could lead to destructive behavior.

Keys To Training Your Maltese:Go to obedience school

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, enrolling your Maltese in an obedience school will educate you how to temper your Maltese’s actions both safely and humanely.

Keys To Training The Maltese:Be patient

Even though teaching your Maltese to be more disciplined will require focus on your part, it’s surely worth it. After all, as man’s best friend, your Maltese will appreciate bonding with you during the process.
