Malte-Poos are what you get when you mix the breed of Maltese and Poodle together. The result is a beautiful, curly/wavy haired, witty and just plain adorable ball of fluff. Malte-Poos have a million and one reasons why they are one of the best breeds of dogs to own. Aside from being a perfect companion, the Maltese do not have as many of the genetic health problems many of the other breeds pass on. As poodles are generally a healthy breed and have a very docile personality and are great lap dogs. So, when you mix the two, you get what I feel are just the perfect pet.
Malte-Poos are Hypo-Allergenic, too! Maltese and Poodles belong to a class of dog breeds that are hypo-allergenic to most people. Maltese have human-like hair that sheds minimally while Poodles have non-shedding. Please research to find other facts about human allergies to pets. Malte Poos have easy to manage hair that doesn’t mat easily. Brushing your pets hair daily can prevent any hard to manage tangling. Many Malte-Poos owners get their pets groomed to the latest hair fashions with numbers of styles and additional hair accessories.
All in all, the Malte-Poo is a great pet for anyone of any size or age. They’re playful, intelligent, loving and compassionate and a life long companion.
There are many sources of stress. Simply moving a puppy to a new home, holding him too much, contending with another pet, or being allowed too much play time, are just a few of the many sources of stress. A new puppy is nervous and excited because they are unfamiliar with their surroundings and their new families and this causes a lot of stress. They are like babies who need regular scheduled time for eating, sleeping, drinking, going potty and playing.
It can be a carrier, a cage, a playpen, or a small enclosed area in a quiet room of your home. The crate serves two purposes. It will house train your pet and it protects its health and well being while it grows. The crate provides a secure, comfortable place where he can rest, eat, drink, and play at his own pace. The crate should be placed in an area where the temperature stays about the same all the time. Avoid drafty areas. Provide a comfortable bed in the crate since puppies sleep approximately 90% of the time until they are older. They will need food and water available to them in the crate at all times. This allows them to eat, drink and rest as they need to so they can grow properly.
Too much of this can add stress and overtire the puppy. A tired puppy will not eat. He only want to sleep. Missing a meal can be a life threatening thing with a young, small puppy. It can lead to a condition called hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). This can become dangerous if not noticed and treated immediately. A puppy can be played with for about 30 minutes at a time at first. Taking him out for his potty break should begin the playtime. This schedule for playing can be increased gradually, week by week, as the puppy grows older and becomes stronger. The rest time should remain the same. He needs at least two hours or more at a time in his crate, undisturbed, for rest. GIVING HIM QUIET TIME FOR REST IS A MUST!!!
