Do Maltese shed?

Yes, Maltese shed. However, they shed very little.

Many people have compared a Maltese dog’s shedding to humans and hair loss. If you brush or comb your hair, some of your hair will fall out. If you groom your Maltese’s coat, there will be some slight shedding.

Some owners say their Maltese shed a moderate amount of hair, but the moderate shedding seems to be due to the lack of grooming by the owner.

You should brush your Maltese dogs 2 to 3 times a week to cut down on shedding and remove any debris stuck to their hair.
