Malti Poos may be susceptible to health problems affecting the parent breeds, such as heart issues, dental problems (frequent tooth brushing can help), and bloat, though they are somewhat less likely to suffer these conditions then purebred Poodles or Maltese (known as ‘hybrid vigor’). Bloat can be prevented by feeding from a raised dish, spacing meals throughout the day, and avoiding exercise immediately after meals.
The MaltiPoo is eager to learn and should not present many difficulties in training. Positive reinforcement is likely to be the most successful approach. This breed may take a while to house train. Like the Maltese, many Malti Poos are paper or box trained rather than ‘outdoor’ trained. We have ours outdoor trained, so it is possible for them to use doggie doors and etc.
