"How To Trim A Maltese Face and give a Teddy Bear Haircut"



Wash and clean your Maltese pup’s body and face with a whitening shampoo made for white dogs.

Clean under her eyes -- where tear stains often occur -- with a warm washcloth.

If necessary, use a commercial tear stain remover available at your local pet store.

Dry your Maltese’s face with a towel. Blow dry her body and allow her face to completely dry before trimming.
Comb her face and ears with a metal comb.

Hold your blunt-end scissors in one hand and tip your pup’s chin up with the other one. Trim the hair under her chin about 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

Trim her mustache evenly on each side. Take off about 1/4 inch on each side of her nose.

Cut the hair on his cheeks even with his mustache. Give the hair a rounded look by starting at the edge of his nose and cutting towards his throat.
