Havamalt Breed Maintenance
The Havamalt is hypoallergenic with low shedding levels. Despite their hypoallergenic qualities, the Havamalt requires weekly grooming to maintain its long, silky hair. The Maltese parent has trouble with tear staining, and lighter colored Havamalts may need their eyes cleaned to prevent staining as well. The long hair on and around the ears may attract and trap dirt, debris, and moisture. You can avoid ear infections and foul-smelling ears with regular ear cleaning with a veterinarian approved solution. Otherwise, your Havamalt is not known to have a doggy odor. Havamalts are known for their playful and attentive natures, which make them easy to train. Their energy and intensity levels are moderate, and though they require daily exercise, they can get away with a light run around the house.
