In this blog post, we’ll be taking a comprehensive look at maltipoo ears – from size and shape to how to groom them properly. So if you want to learn everything there is to know about your pup’s precious ears, read on!

How do you trim a Maltipoo ear?

Trimming the ears of a Maltipoo can be a daunting prospect, particularly for those tackling it for the first time. But with careful attention and preparation, anyone can become an expert in Maltipoo ear trimming. Firstly, be sure to have every tool you need in one place – scissors, clippers, comb – so you don’t have to search around during the process. Next, lift each ear and use scissors to carefully snip away any excess fur.

Then, take your clippers and cut away the fluffier fur inside the ears until they look well-groomed. Finally, make sure to brush out any loose pieces of fur while running your fingers through the coat; this will ensure that no fur gets stuck between their toes or in other places where it could cause discomfort later down the line. With a bit of practice and patience, Maltipoo ear trimming becomes much easier!

What is the best grooming cut for a Maltipoo?

When it comes to grooming cuts for a Maltipoo, all owners have different preferences. Thinking of what best suits your pup’s features and lifestyle is key. A longer puppy cut or teddy bear trim can be great if you’d like the coat to look natural and cute, while a shorter cut with neat edges may stay cleaner and require less maintenance. Whatever style you choose, keeping up with regular brushing, bathing, and nail trim sessions is essential for their health and happiness!

How do I groom my Maltipoo myself?

Grooming your Maltipoo yourself is a great way to save some money usually spent on professional groomers. With regular daily brushing, you can keep your pup’s hair looking glossy and healthy. Some suggest that using a wide-toothed comb in combination with a grooming brush will help remove tangles and debris much better than using either one alone. Be sure to mind their eyes, ears, and nails while brushing.

You’ll need specialized tools like an eye dropper for cleaning the eyes, a dog nail clipper for trimming their nails, and cotton balls dampened with ear cleaner for gentle cleanings of the ears – all of which are easy to find at any pet store near you! After each session, reward your pup with treats so they develop positive associations for their overall grooming experience.

Do Maltipoos have big ears?

If you’re looking for an easily-recognizable pooch that stands out from the crowd, a Maltipoo may be for you. Unlike many small breed dogs, Maltipoos don’t always have big ears, but when they do, you can expect them to perk up their faces in the most delightful way! Whether they have the large and floppy ears of the Poodle or smaller ones of the Maltese, these furry companions remain alert and ever attentive to their owners. And while they typically don’t need a haircut due to their lack of shedding, those with big ears may require regular visits to the groomer!

Do Maltipoos have pointy ears?

A Maltipoo is an adorable mix between a purebred Maltese and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. Many people wonder if a Maltipoo will have ears like the Maltese (droopy) or the Poodle (pointy). While there is no definite answer, it really depends on their genetics! Some Maltipoos may end up with both pointy and floppy ears, but usually, it’s one or the other. Usually, at least one ear of the pup will be slightly more pointy than floppy. So when looking for a Maltipoo of your own, always take a gander at those ears when meeting them for the first time!

What does it mean when Maltipoo’s ears stand up straight?

When a Maltipoo’s ears stand up straight it typically means one thing: they are ready to listen! Not only can those cute, floppy ears stand up in attention, but they are finely attuned and ready to snatch up any sort of sound.

Thanks to their heritage as a cross between a Maltese and Poodle, these pooches have an incredible auditory power that is feared by many small rodents. If you ever need your canine companion to keep their ear out for anything, you can rest assured that a Maltipoo is always on the job.


Maltipoos have either poodle or Maltese ears, and their shape varies depending on the dominant breed in their genetic makeup. The size of a maltipoo’s ears is usually proportional to the size of his head and body. There are three basic ear shapes: button, rose, and tulip. Most groomers recommend that you clean your maltipoo’s ears weekly to avoid infection. Be sure to use a cotton ball soaked in an ear-cleaning solution recommended by your veterinarian. Never stick anything down into your dog’s ear canal! If you’re not comfortable grooming your dog, most professional groomers will be happy to do it for you.
