Since I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband, we started looking for a dog small enough to live in the house with us, but we also didn’t want to deal with a lot of shedding. My husband recommended maltipoos because of their excellent nature. In his words, “They’re not as spazzy and yappy as Chihuahuas or similar small dogs.”
My husband surprised me one day by bringing Ava home and I instantly fell in love. She was very intelligent and was always eager to learn new tricks, which to her means more treats!
Within a few short weeks, she eagerly learned to sit, lay down, turn around, beg, jump, and go take a nap. Having a mix of poodle, which is the second smartest breed, really helps.
It is a lot of fun teaching our dogs new tricks! This article by yourdogadvisor.com has a few brilliant tricks that you can teach your dog. They also explain how to teach them.
We have also added a new addition to our home, Molly, to give Ava someone to play with when our busy lives take over and they love each other. They do everything together including sharing their chew toys.
I absolutely love our small breeds and enjoy the precious moments when they have puppies and the time I get to spend with their puppies as they curiously explore this new world they’re born into.
We are a family co-operative and we strive to breed only the healthiest Small breeds with lots of love and attention. I have strict breeding and care standards for all of the Small Breed in our program. Our family Co-operative includes Rosader (Maggie), Gideon (Willow), Miles (Yvette) and Joseph (Mitsy).
