And to keep appearance of a canine friend as it should be, perhaps, it is necessary to dress a dog in overalls. Wash malteses with use of special shampoo and the conditioner for dogs.
Comb malteses special hairbrushes. The confused wool is untangled by hands, use of koltunorez and slicker brushes is not allowed at all – they spoil structure of wool.
