Maltipoo Puppies For Sale In Alaska
The Maltipoo is a small dog breed, reaching about 7-14 inches in height and only 5-20 pounds in weight. While these dogs do well as a member of a family, they may not be the ideal pet for households with very young children as these small dogs could get hurt by mistake.
The Maltipoo can live for about 10 to 13 years, though some have lived even longer.
Shedding and Hypoallergenic
As we mentioned above, the Maltipoo was created as a hypoallergenic canine companion for allergy sufferers. Neither the Maltese nor the toy Poodle shed all that much, however, all dogs to do leave behind some hair and dander. The saliva in dogs can also cause allergic reactions in those who are susceptible. While the Maltipoo is considered hypoallergenic, your reactions to the dog may vary. The possibility exists for someone to have no reaction to the dog at first, only to become allergic later on. If you’re considering a Malipoo for its hypoallergenic qualities, try to spend some time around them first before you bring one home.
The Maltipoo is rather easy to train because they are a very intelligent breed. But keep in mind these are also small and somewhat emotionally sensitive dogs, so it’s best to take things slowly and refrain from any aggressive or harsh training methods. You don’t want to yell or scream at the dog if he or she is not learning your commands or disobeying them altogether. It’s never a good idea to take this approach when training any animal, dog or otherwise. Taking a hard-line attitude with sharp, angry words will only damage the relationship with your pet and trust will be lost.
If you are unsure about how to go about training your Maltipoo properly or you don’t have the time to do so, you may want to hire a professional dog trainer to do it for you. Maltipoos can be trained for a whole variety of things, including therapeutic purposes.
What are the benefits of having a Maltipoo
3 pros of Maltipoos
1. Good for apartments
Maltipoos can range in height from 4 to about 14 inches at their shoulder and they weigh between 3 and 20 pounds. This makes them ideal candidates for apartment living. For most apartment complexes with pet weight limits the max weight is often around 25 or 50 pounds, both of which keep the Maltipoo in the running. Because of their small stature, they don’t require as much space in order to be able to play and exercise indoors too.
2. Low shedding
We’ve already mentioned the low shedding coats which can make these pups ideal for families where someone is allergic to pups. Although there really is no such thing as a truly hypoallergenic dog, its is believed that these poodle mixes can help keep allergy sufferers comfortable and allow them to have a dog in the house.
Maltipoos are friendly pups and can be great companion dogs for children and seniors alike. They can also thrive as therapy dogs working with anyone who needs a little comfort and cheer. We always remind new parents and new pet parents that even with a friendly pup it is important to supervise dogs and children when they play together.
4 cons of Maltipoos
1. Sensitive temperament
Maltipoos can have a more sensitive temperament and can be highly sensitive to changes in environment and chaos in general. If you move around a lot or have a very chaotic home, this might not be the right pup for you.
2. Prone to separation anxiety
While this may be true of a lot of “pandemic puppies” the Maltipoo as a breed is particularly prone to separation anxiety. Teaching your puppy from a young age that the crate is a safe space and that you’ll always come back (maybe with a tasty treat..) will help your puppy with any anxieties. Just remember to be consistent and enlist the help of a trainer if you need to.
3. Coats require some maintenance
The Maltipoo’s hair will need regular brushing and trimming. If you don’t want to enlist a pro for a costly groom (these services tend to be around $75) you might be able to learn to do it yourself. Just be careful not to cut the pup or trim down too far.
4. Can be expensive
Although Matipoos are not considered purebred dogs by the American Kennel Club, they can still cost upwards of $4,000 for a puppy. Why? Mostly because of consumer demand. These dogs make wonderful companions and family pets and breeders are cashing in. Because of this it is important to vet your breeder thoroughly to ensure you aren’t purchasing a puppy from a puppy mill. Not only are these mills not good to the parents who are overbred, you also risk bringing a sick puppy into your home which can be devastating.
Is a Maltipoo a good first dog?
Yes, the Maltipoo can be a great first pup for a new dog owner. Like any puppy, the Maltipoo puppy is going to be hard work. From teaching your puppy to use a crate and go to the bathroom outside to managing that puppy energy and teething, there is still plenty for a new owner to do. All of the training and care you provide to your new puppy will help strengthen your bond, making your puppy your best friend for life.
