That's the best idea.

I leash walk Lady in a neighborhood full of people of all ages so she is used to being petted by very old people who live in the nearby retirement home and also very young children. I also take her places with me so she is exposed to many people that way, too.

I always make sure I am holding her so people aren't swooping down on her and don't frighten her, plus that way I can monitor the young children (although they are always gentle). I can even play "where's her nose", etc. with the little kids. Lady holds as still as a statue for the kids.

I think a well socialized Maltese is just an easier dog to live with. I can take her anywhere with me and she is very well behaved.
