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.

Temperament

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.

Exercise

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.

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!
