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.

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.

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.
I purchased Nico (formerly Gavin) from Premier Pups in November, and absolutely adore my new best friend! The staff was amazing and made sure to check in with me throughout the entire process. They were always available to answer any questions I had. I will always recommend Premier Pups to anyone in the market for a new family member.
We had been looking to add a pup to our family for quite a while and when we saw Barkley we knew we had to have him. Premier Pups delievered beyond our expectations and we could not be happier with our baby boy!!
I adopted Oscar almost a year ago. He is an absolute joy and a fortunate addition to my family! He is so beautiful sweet and lovable! Every time I take him out in New York City, I feel like I am with a celebrity... everyone falls in love with him!
We have been searching for a puppy for quite some time. We wanted the Percy pup to our family. I have stumbled accross many webpages that sold puppies and were skeptical about the process. After reading reviews we decided to go for it. We found Kingston and decided to put an offer in. From that day forward we have had outstanding support from premier pups. From purchasing him, to receiving him, and care for him after arrival. It’s been an amazing experience. We are so excited to have Kingston home with us and our family couldn’t be happier! It’s been an exciting first week for all of us and we’re even looking into getting another one! I will keep you all updated! Thank you premier pups!
I bought a Maltipoo puppy by the name of Joyce. She's so full of energy and loves everyone. They were very helpful with my little girl moving and settling in. I couldnt be more grateful with my choice and the smooth process Premier Pups provided. I would definitely recommend purchasing your bundle of joy from Premier Pups!
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!
My tiny fur baby just celebrated his first birthday. What a sweet little guy in your lives.
Brought Dolly home 2 years ago this Thanksgiving! She is the sweetest fur baby and I tell everyone how amazing Premier Pups facility, and staff was when we came to get our girl. We will definitely be back for Dolly’s little brother or sister :) highly recommended!!
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!
My wonderful husband surprised me on my birthday 3 years ago with our precious maltipoo. She was only 1.8 pounds and it was love at first sight! She works as a therapy dog in my counseling practice and brings joy and peace to many clients every day! We have referred dozens of people to your business in our rural area. We have been very satisfied with our baby girl! Thank you!
