A cross between the Maltese and the Poodle, the Maltipoo is one of the most sought-after designer puppies in the country. Their hypoallergenic, non-shedding coats make them a perfect fit for any allergy sufferers. These dogs were bred to show love and be loved, once in the presence of a Maltipoo it may be hard to go to any other breed. And if that doesn’t make them desirable enough, they are very easily trainable and enjoy the process.
Appearance and Grooming
These puppies have a low shedding coat and a fluffy, soft and wool-like texture which is medium to long and varies from slightly wavy to curly. The coat can have different colors such as cream, white or silver. They require regular brushing to keep their coats clean and clipping of their coats once or twice a year, though trimming around the eyes, muzzle and ears is recommended more often. The ears also need to be cleaned to get rid of dirt, debris and moisture. This breed needs to have regular dental check-ups and nail care. It is recommended to start the grooming process in childhood to get it used to it.
While both Poodles and Maltese are very loving and affectionate dogs, the Maltese has a tendency to become overly assertive and reactive in certain situations, and may nip if provoked. On the other hand, the Poodle, particularly the Miniature, has a milder temperament and is far more tolerant, and this tends to shine through.
Family and Companionship
This quintessential companion dog, adores attention and loves to cuddle, and should never be forced to spend long periods alone, as it is prone to separation anxiety. Expect this puppy to be lively, inquisitive and eager to play. They make an exceptional family pet as they enjoy socialization and children.
Though designed for indoor life, your new puppy will still need daily exercise to stay healthy, happy and out of mischief. The have lots of energy and if not burned in a constructive manor can result in destructive behavior. Taking short walks and both indoor and outdoor play sessions are perfect for this small pup.
Training and Socialization
Known for their intelligence, affection, sociability and loyalty, these dogs become very attached to their owners. This in combination of its inherited intelligence of the Poodle and the sweetness of the Maltese that makes training simple as they are eager to please. Early socialization is highly recommended in order for these dogs to interact with different people, pets and places. Be sure to use positive reinforcement tactics such as food rewards, play and praise.

Between 2-3 months old it is recommended to free-feed a puppy. This means that fresh food should be available to the puppy at all times. Between 3 months - 1 year your Maltipoo should be on a schedule of eating 3 meals per day. From 1 year and on most adult Maltipoo’s need to have at least 2 meals per day.
General guidelines for feeding a Maltipoo are: • 2 to 4 lbs. 1/3 to 1/2 cups per day. • 5 to 8 lbs. 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day. • 8 to 10 lb. adult = 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day. • 10 to 12 lb. adult = 3/4 to 1 cup per day. • 13 to 16 lb. adult = 1 to 1 and 1/4 cups per day.
They love to hear themselves bark! This makes for an excellent watch dog and will alert you of anything suspicious. Their barking can be controlled if nipped in the bud at an early age through proper training and socialization.
Never leave your Maltipoo outside unattended. Although they are active and should receive daily walks they are best left indoors. Their small size makes them an easier target for predators.
The average lifespan is between 12 to 16 years.
Baths should be given every 3 weeks. Any more than this can cause their skin to become very dry and flaky.
Yesterday was the one year anniversary when Sugar (formerly Fallon) came into our lives. And we couldn’t be happier. After doing a great deal of research on the breed we wanted (Maltipoo) my wife and I searched for the best place to find one. We came upon Premier Pups and were overjoyed. PP was very professional and extremely helpful and informative in explaining the process. We picked up our Sugar at the airport in Boston and our lives have never been the same since. She is the most loving and friendly puppy that we have ever seen…and smart too. We will be forever grateful we found you.
Our little guy just celebrated his first birthday on 8/14/20 and is as happy and healthy as ever. From start to finish, my experience with Premier Pups was fantastic. Hudson is the first dog I have ever bought for myself, so understandably I had an obnoxious amount of questions for the staff in the weeks leading up to his availability. The staff, however, answered each one quickly and thoroughly. As soon as I can convince my husband that Hudson needs a sibling, I will definitely use Premier Pups again!
I am so thankful that I found Premier Pups (by accident)! I was a little skeptical purchasing a puppy online, but after days of looking at the pups on the website and reading the reviews, as well as looking at a few videos on YouTube from people who purchased, and the icing on the cake was having a Face Time video with Marley. I was in love! I thought about driving to Ohio to pick him up, but I wasn't excited about a 12hr round trip drive. So after reading the reviews from people who had their pup flown to them, I thought I would do the same. It was easy pezy...the staff at Premier Pups provided the flight information and tracked Marley's flight. He arrived and he was perfectly fine. He's had his first vet check and they said he's healthy. He's the smartest dog in the world...he's been going to the bathroom outside from day 1! He started puppy training 3 weeks ago and is catching on very fast. Everyone who meets him falls in love. In closing this is a funny...I purchased a bottle of shampoo, and after getting home, I realized that the my Marley looks like the dog on the bottle...I said, "Marley you can be a model!" LOL! Thanks Premier Pups for blessing our family with such a wonderful fur baby!!
I have to say, when we first started looking for a puppy for our family I didn't know how extensive and exhausting it would be. We found some puppies but always felt unsettled with either the breeder or company. I came across Premier Pups in my search, but initially bypassed due to the the distance. However, after seeing an amazing review on YouTube and then looking at all of the other reviews online, I started to get 'that feeling' of excitement. I then looked for a dog on their site and came upon 'Rita' the maltipoo. She was so unique looking for her mix, and I just knew she was the one. Even though it was above our price point, Premier Pups made this decision easy! The were prompt in answering questions, helped us with selection and gave us the assurance that we were looking for. Even when we decided to have her shipped, she was flown in, in style. From the time of her preparation and departure to when she arrived with all of her supplies and info, I can not tell you how 5 star the experience felt.. We are beyond pleased and know she was EXACTLY for us... We have recommended everyone to Premier Pups! Just amazing!
Buzz is now named Cooper . I am so in love with this little guy. He is happy, healthy and a wonderful addition to my home. At first Cooper was having a rough time transitioning into my home and Priemier Pups went above and beyond helping with the transition. They have called me every day checking on him.
We drove to Premier Pups from Chicago IL. The staff at premier made us feel comfortable with Jagger and helped us help him adjust to his new home and family. Jagger basically potty trained himself so that was also amazing. Me and my family love Our Jagger and will definitely be coming back to Premier Pups for our next puppy!!!
We were so exited to pick up Slugger (previously Chadwick). Everything went perfectly and we loved him from the moment we met him. We were provided with all instructions needed and everything went smoothly. I would recommend Premier Pups to anyone looking for a new puppy. They even called the next day to make sure everything was fine. They are professional, reliable and their puppies are adorable!
We got Lacey 1 year ago and we couldn’t be happier! She is a very loving, caring and very smart companion! We love her so much and enjoy her daily! Premier Pups made the entire experience easy and very enjoyable. I’m so grateful we found you and trusted in you! Thank you for my sweet baby girl Lacey!
After lots of research we decided to get our Maltipoo pup, Yuki (formally Kashmere) from Premier Pups in Oct 2019. Great service and care! This is our first puppy and they provided a lot of info and support for our pup. Yuki flew from OH to us in MN and did amazing when we picked her up at Delta cargo. Delta called us when she was ready to be picked up. She was just under 2 lbs. did well on the flight. She is so playful, sweet, loving and gentle. She ate her kibbles right away when she arrived at home. We trained her on the potty pad in 2 days and did well during crate training. No crying only woke us up to potty and sometimes play for a little bit lol. Never pee or poop in her crate. We continued with royal canine food as recommended by Premier and Yuki has not had any GI issues. Poops solid since day one! I did a DNA test for fun and health and Yuki is 100% Maltipoo! I’ve seen so many people being told they were sold a Maltipoo but ends up being a mixed pup only. Yuki turned 1 year old in August 2020 and is healthy, so calm and sweet. She does well with my rough, naughty 7 year old daughter! Yuki has no separation anxiety. We socialize/exposed to lots of noises as soon as we got her per the info/sites recommended by Premier. Yuki only started barking at our door when she was 8 months but we trained her right away not to. She still tries sometimes but knows it’s a no no. She thinks she a big dog hehe. Yuki does well on walks. No barks at all even when other dogs are barking at her from across the street she just looks at them and then moves on. She loves people and other dogs of all sizes. We took her to our neighborhood park (pre COVID) and about 8-9 kids swarmed around her taking turns holding and playing/petting her. Yuki was in heaven. She just loves playing so much! Yuki is very heathy. So far only sick vet visit is for 1 ear infection due to water in her ears. She is fully grown now at 5 lbs and 4 oz. right on per Premier’s estimate (5-7lbs). How big was important to our family because of our lifestyle. She’s so perfect and such an amazing dog! This has to do with great breeders! Thanks Premier Pups!
We have had our pup ‘Buddy’ for about a week and he is wonderful. The puppy selection and pick up experience from Premier Pups was great... organized, professional, clean and informative. I was so impressed, that I have purchased and will be picking up another pup for our family soon. - Thanks Premier Pups!
