About Maltipoo

History of the breed

Maltipoo breed begins its history since 1990.

Maltipoo is a designer canine breed that combines two popular breeds the Maltese and the Toy Poodle, Firstly, Maltipoo appeared in the USA.

The dog is playful and very energetic. Maltipoo puppies are gentle, extremely intelligent, eager to please, easy to learn and very loyal to their owners and families. Maltipoo is a real family dog. They tend to love everyone they meet. Maltipoo gets along well with children.

The colour varies from cream to brown. The coat is soft and fluffy, slightly wavy. It may have a different texture depending on which dominant gene the puppy inherited.
The size of Maltipoo depends on its pedigree. Maltipoo can be:
  • Teacup (Extra Micro) – less than 1.5 kg
  • Micro 1.5 - 2 kg
  • Mini 2 - 2.5 kg
Choosing a puppy, you should pay attention to the bone structure, physique and height. There is also a “standard” size - from 2.5 to 4 kg.
The dog is miniature and lightweight. The physique is slightly squat, but harmonious. The body has an elongated shape. The chest is wide and the stomach is tightened.

Head and ears
Its head is proportional to the body, visually round, the transition from the forehead to the face is evident. The length of face and skull are the same. The eyes are round, closely spaced, slightly pop-eyed, with a dark iris (the pupil is practically not visible). The nose is small, turned-up black. The mouth is small. Lip pigmentation is dark, tightly fitting to the gums. Normally Maltipoo has 42 teeth. The ears are hanging, medium-sized and covered with hair. The neck is strong and long enough.

The hind and front paws are straight, parallel, relatively short. The limbs have a rounded shape. The hock joints are well expressed. The musculature is well developed. The paws are tightly closed in a ball. The color of claws is often light.
There are 3 main types of Maltipoo hair. It depends on which genes predominate the poodle or the Maltese lapdog.

Straight and silky:
puppies with a lot of Maltese tend to have a very soft & silky coat, and it is mostly straight. The coat is thick, from medium to very thick.

Thick and curly:
if the poodle genes are dominant, Maltipoo will have a thick curly coat. The texture will be rougher and prone to dullness and tangles.

Wavy and stiff:
this type of coat is rare and because of its harsh coat, it is very difficult to take care.
Maltipoo is a hybrid of Maltese lapdog and Poodle, so the character depends on the ratio of the parents’ blood. Some dogs have the habits of a poodle while others are similar to Maltese.

Distinctive features:

– A sharp mind and learning ability
A sufficiently high level of intelligence, which was inherited from the toy poodle, contributes to fast and high-quality training.

– Maltipoo is non-conflict
They aren’t aggressive, so they easily get along with other pets and children.

– Maltipoo is full of curiosity and likes to play
So you can always have fun and amusement. They love to walk and explore the house.

If you work a lot and you are often not at home, then we do not advice this breed, because this breed needs attention, care, walks and games. Maltipoo dogs love their family and it’s very hard for them to stay alone.
It is known that Maltipoo puppies are very smart, playful and affectionate. They can easily adapt to new conditions and they are so friendly.
Keeping and caring
Maltipoo can be kept both in a house and in a flat. The dog needs a personal place to live (a couch, bowls, toys, etc.)

Choose and place a couch away from windows. This breed does not like drafts.

The pet does not need long walks. 30 minutes walk in the fresh air is enough. It is necessary to walk Maltipoo on a lead to avoid loss, theft and attacks by other dogs.

  • The claws should be cut 1-2 times in 2 months
  • Teeth should be cleaned with a special toothpaste at least once a week. Also, teeth cleaning can be done daily
  • Ears should be checked and cleaned regularly with ear lotion once a fortnight
  • Approximately once in 2 months, the hair from the auricle should be pulled, using a special powder
  • Eyes should be wiped 3-4 times a week
  • Lacrimal paths can appear because of unsuitable nutrition

The difficulty of caring for the breed depends on its coat

You need to wash Maltipoo as soon as it gets dirty, but no more than 2-3 times a month. It is recommended to do it 1 time a month. It is necessary to use a special mild shampoo. You can dry hair with a hair dryer, but ALWAYS with cold air. Use a brush.
If the wool has matted, don’t wash the pet. First you need to unravel tangles using brushes & rakes and special sprays, only then you can bathe Maltipoo.
Care for straight hair
Long straight hair takes less efforts. You need to brush a dog about 3-5 times a week.
Care for curly hair
Curly hair tends to be tangled and the formation of tangles. Such dogs need to be brushed daily with a brush made of natural bristles (or a rake with rare teeth). Then brush with a slicker brush.
Care for hard wool
Wire-haired dogs need to be brushed every day. Also, you can use a slicker brush. Regular grooming is needed 1 time every 2-3 months.
Maltipoo can be fed with dishes made from natural products or dry feed. The choice of food depends on the preferences of the owner. The main thing is not to mix dry feed and homemade dishes.

If the owner chooses dry feed, it should be at least premium class (super premium class is preferred). Cheap dry feed can cause allergies, urolithiasis and digestive disorders. It is produced from offal and waste from slaughterhouses. Flavor enhancers are also included in the list of its ingredients. Such components are highly addictive. Better to choose super-premium feeds. They contain useful and & healthy ingredients and meat. There is no corn and other allergens in a good food. Oat is used to add weight, but there are also grain-free feeds. Taking all these points into account, you reduce the risk of allergies and food poisonings of your pet.

There is a special food for Small Breeds.
If the owner is a supporter of natural food,
the following products should be included
in the dog menu:
  • boiled meat (beef, rabbit, poultry, lamb)
  • well-boiled offal
  • boiled sea fish (limited)
  • cereals (rice, buckwheat, oatmeal)
  • raw chicken or quail yolk (no more than twice a week)
  • boiled egg white
  • fermented milk products (cottage cheese, kefir, curdled milk)
  • vegetables (carrots, beets, cabbage, cucumbers, sweet peppers)
  • garlic clove (once a week for the prevention of helminthiasis)
  • seasonal fruits and dried fruits of home production (except exotic ones)
  • finely chopped greens
  • vegetable oil (a teaspoon per day)
  • as a treat - a few walnuts with honey (they can be given no more than once a week)
An adult Maltipoo should receive food in the morning and in the evening. Meat should make up to a half of the daily diet. It is better to boil until cooked. It is permissible to give raw beef. To avoid infection with worms, the meat is stored in the freezer for several days and defrost before serving.
Due to the low energy value, the amount of fish is doubled. Pre-remove the head, fins, insides, bones and tail. It is recommended to give preference to marine and oceanic fish. The river fish carries the eggs of worms. Fermented milk products replace a full meal. They can be given as an afternoon snack.
The list of prohibited products:
  • pork, liver
  • milk (not absorbed by the body of an adult dog)
  • boiled bones
  • tubular bird bones
  • potatoes, legumes
  • grapes and raisins
  • soy, fresh bread and yeast flour products
  • smoked meats and sausages
  • confectionery products
  • fried, salty, spicy, fatty
  • additives and spices

Regardless of the type of food, Maltipoo should have clear water constantly.
Training and education
Maltipoo puppies are well trained, but they tend to be stubborned. You cannot use brute force and raise your voice to them, otherwise they will not be able to concentrate and they will lose the desire to study.

From the first months of life, the pet needs to be shown who is the boss in the house in order to avoid manipulation in the future.
For productive training, exercises should be conducted regularly according to the incentive system. Trainings should not be long, 20-30 minutes is enough, but on a regular basis. To cheer up the pet, after each success, you can give him a treat, play, say something nice.

Education and training must begin from the first months of life. It is necessary to observe the prohibitions and rules in relation to the pet by all family members on a permanent basis.

Determine your own rules of dog behavior in the house and follow them regularly so that all upbringing does not go down the drain.
