The Ultimate Toy Moodle Guide
About Toy Moodle
Also known as the Maltipoo, the Toy Moodle is a mix of the Maltese and Toy Poodle. This designer dog has become very popular over the last decade because it carries the best characteristics of its parent breeds.
12 to 16 years
Three to eight kilograms
25 to 35 cm
The Toy Moodle may be low maintenance and a light shedder, but it still needs daily brushing to remove knots.
The Toy Moodle does not have a deep historical background. It was crossbred to create a hypoallergenic dog that has an excellent temperament and few genetic diseases.
Because it is a designer dog, it is not officially recognised by breed clubs. However, it is welcomed by the North American Maltipoo Club and Registry.
Key Characteristics Of Toy Moodles
Are Toy Moodles Family-Friendly?
Yes, they are. Toy Moodles are relaxed and happy around children and other pets. It is important, however, that parents advise their children not to play rough with these dogs because of their small size and fragile body.
Common Health Issues & Considerations
Toy Moodles may suffer from:
A condition where the kneecap moves out of its normal position in the groove of the thigh bone, causing lameness or an abnormal gait.
Portosystemic shunt of the liver
A condition where an abnormal blood vessel connection allows blood to bypass the liver, leading to reduced detoxification and potential systemic health problems.
Nature / Temperament
Intelligent, loving, relaxed, and placid
As long as it receives adequate exercise daily, the Toy Moodle will adapt well to both small apartments and large homes. A backyard is not essential.
– While a small dog, the Toy Moodle can be vocal. It may bark at strangers, but it will never be aggressive. Luckily, this dog can be trained not to bark when unprovoked.
– This designer dog enjoys constant human companionship, so leaving it alone for a few hours can cause it to become sad. With early socialisation, this can be avoided.
– Bear in mind that the Toy Moodle can sometimes be sensitive to loud noises.
How can I take good care of my Toy Moodle?
It is recommended that you feed your Toy Moodle three times a day during its first year. Treats in between are okay but only during training. After its first year, it is suggested to feed it small meals twice a day.
This canine can be fed both wet and dry foods. It is advised to try giving it dry food at first because this can help keep its teeth healthy and strong. To soften the dry food and make it easier to swallow, add a little bit of water to it or mix some soft dog food to it.
If your canine is not very receptive to dry food, you can give it wet food. Bear in mind, though, that a dog diet that consists mainly of wet food may result in loose bowels.
To prevent your Toy Moodle from getting sick, it is suggested to avoid giving it these unhealthy and poisonous foods: raisins, chocolate, salt, onions, fruit seeds, coffee, soda, and tea.
It is recommended to brush your Toy Moodle’s hair daily and take it to a professional groomer every month and a half.
Bathing is recommended every three to four weeks. Avoid bathing it frequently, as doing so may cause skin dryness.
Recommended Grooming Tips
To prevent discharge buildup, clean your dog’s eyes daily using organic, alcohol-free wipes. Check its eyes regularly for tear stains, as this problem is common in both its parents.
Avoid dental problems, like tartar and gingivitis, by brushing your canine’s teeth daily or providing it with raw beef bones to chew.
It is advised to clean your dog’s ears frequently to avoid infection.
The Toy Moodle has a low-to-moderate energy level, so it does not need an excessive amount of exercise. Short walks daily and trips to the park regularly are enough to keep it happy and healthy.
It is recommended that you avoid allowing your dog to engage in any strenuous activity.
What’s great about the Toy Moodle is that it is intelligent and non-dominant, making it easy to train. It won’t give you a hard time as long as you try to make the sessions positive and fun.
You can start training your canine when it is between eight to 12 weeks old. Housetraining usually takes three to six months to complete.
When training your dog, it is advised to observe its limits and have reasonable expectations. Always reward it for every job well done.
