When people say they wrap their Maltese in rice paper, is that the rice paper we can buy at Asian market? The ones to make spring rolls?
Also, can a Maltese be kept on a long coat without having its fur wrapped?

Hi Tissa, I am not sure about the rice paper. However, my Nani has a long coat and I don't wrap her. I am pretty sure I have seen others on here who do not wrap their long-coated babies either.

Oh, Nani's Mom! Thank you for that info. :) As much as I can see the logic to wrapping; I can't help but wonder if the dog is really comfortable in that.

Tissa, wrapping is normally done by those who show dogs. There are special wrapping papers cut to the right size that most purchase on line or at shows. It is to keep the hair from breaking. I think it unnecessary for a pet dog who will not be in competition. Usually a breeder starts a pup on this regime early on & they are accustomed to the feel & standing still while hair is being wrapped. Sometimes only parts of the hair are wrapped. So rest at ease, not something you need to worry about.
BTW: it is not the same as the paper to make spring rolls!
