Cool Tricks To Teach Your Maltipoo

Table of Contents

Are you looking to show off your maltipoo’s smarts? Teaching tricks is one of the best ways to show off their big personalities and give them something fun (albeit a bit tiring, depending on which trick!) to do. From classic commands like sit or stay, fetching items from around the house, or even more complex tasks like opening a door – there are plenty of cool tricks for you to teach your furry friend!

How can I teach my Maltipoo to shake?

If you want to teach your maltipoo the basic trick of giving a paw or shaking hands, it isn’t that difficult – all you need is some treats and patience! First, get your pup to sit on command. Then present them with their favorite treat and slowly guide their paw into your hand. 

Whenever they make contact, give them the treat as positive reinforcement. With consistent practice and praise, any pup can learn how to shake in no time at all! Plus it always makes for an impressive party trick you can show off to friends and family.

Can Maltipoos learn to roll over?

Of course, Maltipoos can learn to roll over! Because they are highly intelligent breeds, Maltipoos can pick up new commands and tricks quickly. With consistent training and lots of positive reinforcement, your Maltipoo can be rolling over like a pro in no time! 

Keep in mind that even though these pups are super smart, they will still need you to provide leadership and structure. Be sure to make sessions short – around 5 minutes at the most – so your pup doesn’t get bored. Use treats as rewards for good behavior so that your Maltipoo wants to learn what you’re teaching them. After all, who doesn’t love a treat?! 

Finally, don’t be discouraged if it takes more time than expected. Remember that every pup is different and learns at its own pace depending on variables such as age, health, and personality; so just sit back and enjoy the process!

How do I teach my Maltipoo to fetch?

Teaching your Maltipoo to fetch doesn’t need to be a challenge. It’s best to start with a well-loved toy they already have an affinity for and make the session no longer than 10 minutes. 

Start by throwing the toy at a close distance and once they realize what they need to do, congratulate them for their success! The more you provide positive reinforcement in the form of treats or verbal compliments, the quicker your pup will learn this fun game. 

Once your Maltipoo has become comfortable with short distances, increase it slowly until he can fetch from across rooms or outdoor spaces. Each dog learns at his own pace so be patient! Your pup will eventually get there and you’ll both have numerous hours of fun together playing this classic game of fetch.

Can Maltipoos learn to play dead?

Maltipoos are incredibly intelligent, so it’s not surprising that some of them can learn to play dead! It takes patience and consistency on the part of the owner, but if you start teaching your Maltipoo early you might be able to get them to perform this trick in no time. 

The process is simple – figure out what phrase or action will act as your cue (like saying “play dead”) then use positive reinforcement training to teach your pup what they need to do when they hear it. A tasty treat or a few words of praise can turn to play dead into something your Maltipoo looks forward to!

How can I teach my Maltipoo to jump through hoops?

Training your Maltipoo to jump through hoops can be an entertaining and rewarding experience. The trick is to start slowly and build up gradually, as with any other training.

Have your pup get used to the hoop by introducing it to them at a distance; then begin encouraging and guiding them through the hoop, cueing their movements with treats and verbal cues such as “through” or “jump”. 

When they succeed, be sure to provide lots of positive reinforcement! With consistency and patience, your pup will soon master the art of jumping through hoops like a pro!

Can Maltipoos be trained to give high-fives?

Believe it or not, Maltipoos can be trained to give high-fives! If you’re looking for a mini thrill ride with your pup, teaching them how to do this trick is the way to go. 

Training takes consistency and patience but once your Maltipoo grasps the concept they will eagerly await their chance to perform the trick. Make sure to reward your pooch with lots of love and treats whenever they’ve been successful in getting their little paw up. 

Plus, it’s truly amazing watching these awesome pups learn something new and take owning it as part of their repertoire. Trust us, you won’t regret teaching your Maltipoo how to give high-fives!

How can I teach my Maltipoo to crawl?

Teaching a Maltipoo to crawl can be quite a challenge! You must take your time and remain patient throughout the process when training your pup. Start by getting down on their level, making sure they know you are paying attention by looking into their eyes and speaking in a calm voice. 

Make sure to reward them with treats whenever they try and follow your instructions. Once they become comfortable with crawling, take it one step further by setting up obstacles or pathways for them to get through while they are crawling—and don’t forget the treats when they complete the course! With some practice and healthy rewards, you’ll have your Maltipoo crawling like an expert in no time.


All in all, teaching your Maltipoo cool tricks can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Not only will it build a strong bond between you as the owner and your pup, but it’s a great way to get creative and have fun while learning new skills. While training a Maltipoo might take some time and patience, you’ll find that the payoff will be worth it in the end! Plus, you’ll have an adorable pup that knows some fun skills to show all of your friends and family.
