Coat changes

An acquaintence is thinking about getting a small breed dog and knowing I have a maltese, asked me about malteses. She said she read somewhere that some malteses go through a "coat change." Personally, I don't recall my Amanda every going through a coat change, or if she did, I didn't realize is.

Can anyone tell me what a coat change is (or how to recognize it), when it occurs and if one should do anything differently as far as care? Is this at the time they go from like puppy hair to an adult coat. I am just baffled by this question. Thanks for any information.
