  11. 11. Tips & Warnings A Maltese's hair is easy to break and damage. Some owners prefer to use a mink oil spray to keep her coat moisturized and easier to groom. To keep hair out of his eyes, use hair bows and buns, which should sit at the front of his head's crown just in front of his long, flowing ears. Keep her nails trimmed using nail clippers as needed. Trim just the ends, being careful to avoid cutting the quick, as it bleeds and causes your dog pain. Most owners, particularly of show dogs, keep their Maltese's coat at full length. If you'd rather keep it more manageable, you have several options. To give him a short trim, use a # 4F blade. For a longer trim, use a #30 blade with a #1 comb. To trim his stomach, use a #10 blade.
