Welcome to the Forum! I would give treats to the Maltese when the new pup is around, so the Maltese knows when the pup is around good things happen.
My suggestions on things that I have learned and I am no expert....The Maltese is the Boss of the puppy, my suggestion is to treat your Maltese as the top dog (feed first, treat first, play first...you know.....
My pup loves me the best....in the very beginning, I spent the most time with the pup about 4 days, then I had to work 3 nights, then my dh had the puppy and I thought I would lose being the favorite, I didn't.....Dexter stills loves me the best!
It is a lot of work taking care of a puppy! Dexter is almost 3 months and I have become relaxed more, in that, I know what to do now. It seems like I was taking Dexter outside almost every 2 hours when he was a puppy during the day, which I was....lots of work.
Found out the pee pads do not work with Dexter. Havs love paper!
Read and study as much as you can on Dog Behavior, it has help me a lot. Keep reading the forum because you will learn a lot of important information.
Again, welcome to the forum! Please post a picture, we are dying to see new Havs!
