If you’re the proud owner of a Maltipoo, you know that they’re full of energy and always up for a good time. But what do you do when your Maltipoo is just too hyper? Here are a few tips to help calm your hyper maltipoo.

How do you calm down a hyper Maltipoo puppy?

Keeping a hyper Maltipoo puppy calm and relaxed can seem like a difficult task. Fortunately, it doesn’t need to be! The easiest and most effective way to calm them down is with plenty of exercises and physical activity. From going on long walks to playing fetch, exercising your pup can help reduce their energy levels and overall stress level. Additionally, incorporating puzzle toys into their playtime can also be beneficial in keeping your pup’s mind busy while working out their body.

An added benefit of this type of play is that it tires the pup out without them running around wildly which helps keep them from getting too overstimulated. In between physical activities and play times, try taking time for cuddles – when done consistently, snuggling and petting your pup will help both of you relax together and make the bond between you even stronger.

At what age are Maltipoos most hyper?

It’s no secret that Maltipoos are an energetic breed of dog. Generally, these loving pooches tend to be most hyper between the ages of 1-3 years old. This is the time in their life when they are most curious and exploring the world around them!

Although young Maltipoos may require a bit more attention than older dogs, they bring lots of energy, fun, and love into their owners’ lives. Plus, it’s always a joy to watch the transformation that happens as Maltipoos progress from mischievous pups to well-mannered adults!

Are Maltipoos high-energy dogs?

Maltipoos, a cross between a Maltese and a Toy or Miniature Poodle, is quickly becoming the most popular pooch around. Not only are they cute and fluffy, but their small size also makes them perfect for apartment living. But don’t let the small size fool you – these dogs pack a lot of energy! Whether it’s chasing after balls, playing tug of war or just running around out in the yard, these pups have plenty of energy to spare.

A great way to exhaust some of that energy is with daily walks and playtime sessions. Most Maltipoo owners report that their dogs are good at settling down when there’s nothing else to do – making them an ideal pet for households with kids or other pets where attention can be in short supply.

How do I teach Maltipoo to settle down and relax on cue?

As a Maltipoo owner, you know how quickly they get excited by the world around them. It’s important to teach your pup how to settle down and relax on cue so that when it’s time for them to be calm and restful, they can listen to your command and do so without fuss. To do this, start by showing your dog that settling down isn’t a punishment, but rather an enjoyable activity. Offer treats whenever they sit or lie down on their own accord, encouraging them with soothing tones of voice.

Once your Maltipoo is comfortable with the practice, add a verbal cue in the form of a word – may be “relax” – and provide treats each time they respond. Eventually, they should learn that the cue means they should restful and tranquil. With patience and perseverance, teaching your pup how to settle down on cue can be achieved quickly!

How do I train Maltipoo to be less hyper?

Training your Maltipoo to become less hyper is an achievable goal, but it’s important to remember that it won’t happen overnight. Start by figuring out what might be causing the hyperactivity – is it boredom or anxiety? Take steps to alleviate that root cause and create positive outlets for their energy. Training can focus on reinforcing good behavior like ‘sit’ and ‘stay’, while at the same time ensuring they learn how to control their impulses.

With patience and consistency, you will soon find them calming down in situations where they were previously over-excited. Don’t forget lots of rewards – even a small treat or scratch behind the ears can go a long way!

What calms Maltipoo down?

A Maltipoo is a crossbreed of a Poodle and Maltese, combining all the friendliness and intelligence of both breeds. These guys can get worked up easily, but there are some easy tips for calming them down. First and foremost, consistently set limits on behavior; this helps Maltipoos feel more secure and creates a clear boundary for them to understand where they stand. Secondly, distract them with treats- if your pup starts to bark or act out, answer them with treats as a reward for good behavior.

Finally, bonding activities- spend quality time with your pal by going on walks or playing fetch in the park. This physical relationship helps to create a trust that makes it easier to calm them down in tough situations. Taking care of a Maltipoo requires the right balance between discipline and love, but when achieved it’s sure to provide years of companionship!


If your Maltipoo is bouncing off the walls and you can’t seem to get them to calm down, try out some of these methods. Each dog is different, so it may take a little trial and error to find what works best for your pup. And as always, consult with your veterinarian if you have any concerns about your dog’s health or behavior. With a little patience and effort, you should be able to help your furry friend relax and stay calm.
