Do Maltese bite their owners?

No, Maltese don’t bite their owners.

A Maltese puppy will bite or nip at you when playing due to teething, but they bite hard or out of anger. However, you will still need to train them so they don’t develop a habit of biting.

In order to train your puppy to stop biting, provide your Maltese with different chew toys and sternly let your dog know that it is not okay to bite you.

If you do not train your Maltese to not bite when they are puppies, they may bite strangers when they feel nervous or anxious. Even though a Maltese will bite a stranger when they are scared, they won’t bite their owners unless they are being abused.
