Are Maltipoos the perfect apartment dogs, or house dogs? Could be. Let’s talk a little bit more about them.
A Maltipoo dog is a crossbreed between a Miniature Poodle and a Maltese. Adult Maltipoos weigh a round 10 lbs making them perfect for lap dogs. These canines have a legacy with pet lover’s. They are extremely cute lap dogs. Due to their playful, loyal, friendly, and calm nature, they make it easy for any puppy training activity.
Advantages of Getting a Maltipoo as a Pet
Maltipoos are perfect indoor puppies because of their temperament. Here are some characteristics that make them great and lovely indoor pets.
1. The right amount of activity: Maltipoos are interesting and one minute they can be on the move, and the next they are content sitting with you on the couch with you. Our personal Maltipoo, seen above, will play when you want to play, or she will sit as long as you want to sit and watch TV. Many people who enjoy this type of dog in their house will agree that their loving, social temperment gives you the best of both worlds. If you want an active time with your dog, they are usually up for that, or – if you want to chill in front of the TV, they will be right with you.
2. Friendly and good-nurtured: The maltipoo that we own is by far the friendliest dog that we have ever owned or ever been around for that matter. This is reason why they are voted last in the list of watchdogs! They seem to get along with everybody in the house. However, our dog, will warn you of an impending stranger outside of the house, but she doesn’t go wild barking every time a friend walks in the house as other dogs do from time to time.
3. Intelligent: Here, I can proudly say Maltipoos are very intelligent. Their intelligence is reflected on their training. They seem to get things very fast, very early and in the right way. When it comes to puppy training Maltipoos are good dogs to train and can be house broken and trained fairly easily. But, don’t wait. Don’t even wait until you get your dog. Start studying the simple training procedures even before you get your dog so you will be prepared.
We say over and over again that a well house trained dog, as well as a generally obedient dog makes a happy dog and a happy owner. This is one of the top determining factors for a happy Maltipoo and a happy Maltipoo owner. The intelligence of these dogs will help the training process, however, begin ASAP. See our Home Page for more on this topic.
4. Shedding: Maltipoos are none shedders therefore good for people who have allergies or those with asthma. They are puppies for all people. No health risk as such.

However, we realize that there are some others, but, hey…we promote Maltipoos on this site so we’re biased!

Just a bit more about General indoor Puppy training……
Dog’s waste, whether pet or not is no friend to anyone, therefore you need to train your puppy where to potty. That’s just something that goes along with having apartment dogs or house dogs. Otherwise, your house will be full of embarrassment. As mentioned, puppy training for your dog is imperative to the happiness of pet and owner. You may have a designated place indoors, or perhaps you are going to walk your dog every day.
We also highly recommend a great online trainer called “Doggy Dan.” His videos have helped many dog owners with their training challenges.

There are three indoor techniques used to train dogs to potty inside, paper training, dog litter training and pad training. You only need to choose one of them. Please don’t mix these options. Otherwise, you will confuse your puppy. In addition, puppy training is a great investment of time and resources.
You must choose a pottying option that is convenient with you. For example, pad training uses absorbent potty pads readily available in the pet store. These potty’s pads are scented with artificial dog’s urine smell. This is a very easy training method because your canine thinks that is the usual relieve point and will come there always.
