The Maltese are very gentle, friendly, clever and obedient.

They love to sunbath and need daily exposure to sunlight to keep it's nose a healthy, shiny black.

A Maltese has a single long coat which does not shed, and they should be combed and brushed daily. Having a white coat, they can dirty easily and so should be bathed once a week.

Tri-colour CavalierTri-Colour & Ruby Cavalier

Cavaliers are naturally well mannered.

Cavalier dogs need plenty of companionship and cannot live outdoors.

It is recommended that they are groomed at least once a week and bathed at least once a month.

Teacup Yorkshire Terrier

Teacup Yorkies have very special care instructions as they need plenty of tender, loving care. Some even liken owning a teacup Yorkie to having a small child!

They love social interaction and therefore need a lot of attention. They need to be groomed daily and trimmed regularly. They love to roam about and its not uncommon for them to be accidentally stood or sat on!

These diminutive dogs are loved for their size and are often seen poking out of their owner's handbag.


Chis are a lively, clever dog breed with attitude, and adore human companionship.

Chihuahuas should be fed three small meals a day. They should be brushed occasionally using a soft brush or cloth and bathed monthly. They are perfect for apartment living as they require little exercise.

Chis have a life expectancy of up to 18 years.
