Having a Maltese puppy in your home could be a great source of pride and joy for you and while these dogs are a pretty hardy small breed, there a few precautions you may need to undertake to keep your Maltese puppy safe, happy and healthy. A Maltese pup is often sold to their new owners after 12 weeks and these new owners are often unsure of what they need to do to keep their pups healthy and to have them grow normally.

Crate Training

Crate training is one of the first things that Maltese pup owners usually do. When you talk about crate training, you are basically teaching your puppy that there is a place for everything and the crate is his place for security, not for messing up or for peeing and pooping in. There are a lot of different kinds of crates for dogs available in the market and finding the right one to suit your Maltese puppy is simply a matter of preference.

The crate that you choose for your pup will be the crate he or she will be growing up in and you should have considerations for that in place. The crate should be placed in an area that is easily accessible to the pup during the day and safe and comfortable for him during the night. This could mean that you may need to place you puppy's crate in the living room area during the day and take it with you at night to your bedroom. The crate can be lined or cushioned for your pup's comfort and this will serve as his bed and resting area.

Puppy Proof Your House

While you may want your puppy to be able to roam freely around the house, you may need to do a little rearranging to help get your house puppy ready. Since puppies are very curious little creatures, much like little children actually, you may need to move a few things out of their reach to not only avoid damage of these items but to keep your puppy safe as well.

You may need to install safety gates like those being used for babies in areas that you don't want your Maltese pup to get into. You will also need to tape down any visible electrical wires, cover up any unused electrical outlets and keep other possible sources of electrocution out of your pup's way. Your Maltese pup, along with any other kind of puppy, is still in a stage where everything is new and novel and they do not know which things can harm them. They take to chewing everything in sight as a part of this curiosity and moving things to keep the puppy and your things safe is the one sure way to help keep everything in order as you raise your Maltese puppy in your home.
