Gosh, I'm surprised they require a fenced back yard for a Maltese. That just doesn't make sense. I have a fenced in garden area but K&C are outside just a few minutes a day and that is when the weather is not too hot or too cold .... and they do all their playing and bathroom stuff inside. Requiring a fence leaves out a lot of people including people who live in high rises, etc. It just doesn't compute!
