Guide to Breeding the Hybrid Maltipoo

Table of Contents

Maltipoos are the hybrid offspring of two pedigree parents – a Maltese and a Toy Poodle. They have all the best traits of both breeds, making them popular among dog lovers. If you’re thinking of breeding your maltipoo, this guide will help you get started. From choosing the right parents to preparing for the arrival of the puppies, we’ll cover everything you need to know. Let’s get started!

What is a hybrid Maltipoo?

A hybrid Maltipoo is a mix of two breeds, the Maltese and the toy Poodle. These dogs often make wonderful pets because they are easy-going, loyal, and playful companions; however, it’s important to remember that every animal is unique and will have traits from both breeds that may be more dominant than others. That said, hybrid Maltipoos are typically good for owners who don’t have the time or space for larger dogs but still want some degree of companionship.

They usually range in size from 6-12 pounds and come in a variety of coat colors like white, tan, black, silver, and cream. Some may even have curly coats! In general, these furry little pups require daily exercise along with grooming to keep their coats healthy. Hybrid Maltipoos are endearingly affectionate creatures that make wonderful additions to any family.

Can you breed a Maltipoo with another Maltipoo?

Breeding a Maltipoo with another Maltipoo is something that many people consider due to their increasingly popular status as companion and therapy dogs. Although this can technically be done, it is not the most ideal choice for several reasons. This includes the potential of health conditions being passed down from the parents to the offspring, as well as a greater risk of genetic deformities or abnormalities.

For both ethical and practical reasons, a different breed should typically be chosen if breeding two Maltipoos. However, if someone does choose to proceed with breeding two Maltipoos, any puppies produced must be provided with proper care to ensure their optimal health throughout their lives.

How old should a Maltipoo be before breeding?

If you’re wondering how old a Maltipoo should be before breeding, typically it’s recommended to wait until the dog is at least two years old. This gives the dog time to mature both physically and mentally as well as time to mature to get checked for potential health issues that could be passed on.

There are still some risks with waiting until a certain age of course, but this age can lower the odds of serious health problems down the line. Breeding is an important decision to make and both male and female dogs should always be in optimal health before attempting it.

How many puppies does a Maltipoo have the first time?

A Maltipoo is a popular hybrid breed that combines a Maltese and a Poodle. When they give birth, these pups can have litters ranging from 3-5 puppies. Because of their small size, the litter can be quite a surprise for first-time owners.

The moment these adorable bundles of joy are born, people are amazed at how tiny yet lively they are. Maltipoos also make great pets since the hybrid breed has fewer health issues than purebreds – another great reason to get one!

How long is a Maltipoo pregnant?

A Maltipoo, a mix of a Miniature or Toy Poodle and a Maltese, is a popular breed today. While high in demand and well-loved, not much is known about their gestation period. Pregnancy for a Maltipoo typically lasts between nine and eleven weeks. Female dogs can become pregnant as early as eight months old, with the ideal breeding age being between one and four years old. It’s important to monitor the mother’s health closely throughout the pregnancy.

After giving birth, the puppies will need to be monitored by their veterinarian until they reach twelve weeks of age when they can receive any necessary vaccinations. The experience of having a litter of new puppies is an unforgettable one, but it requires patience and commitment from the owners before it comes to fruition!

How much food should a hybrid Maltipoo eat per day?

A hybrid Maltipoo is a designer breed of dog, created by crossing a Maltese and a Poodle. As its parent breeds come in different sizes, so does the Maltipoo. Feeding amounts for each can vary depending on their size and activity level — there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Generally speaking, an adult hybrid Maltipoo should have about one cup of high-quality dry food per day, divided into two even meals with healthy snacks in between.

If your pup is active or growing quickly, you’ll need to adjust the amount accordingly. When in doubt about what to feed your furry little companion, it’s always best to consult with your veterinarian for personalized advice.


You now know everything you need to about the maltipoo and how to successfully breed one of your own. This guide has provided you with all the information necessary to make sure you get started on the right foot. Breeding a maltipoo is a fun and rewarding experience, but it’s important to do your research first. With this guide in hand, you’re well on your way to becoming a successful breeder of hybrid dogs.
