The Maltichon was developed by crossing the adored Maltese and the smart Bichon Frise. Both parent breeds originally belonged to the Bichon type of dog. The Bichon descended from a Poodle and a Barbet (water spaniel) and were used as sailing dogs. They have a long history of making great companions and have remained a sought-after dog breed for generations.

This breed is known for having a very calm yet playful personality. They have warm demeanors and are very approachable. They are pleasant to be around and are not known for aggression. Maltichons are also known to get along well with children and other pets in the household. This breed makes a fantastic family pet and will quickly bond with its family.

Maltichons do well with weekly bathing and daily grooming. This will help to prevent their curly coats from matting and will keep them looking and feeling their best. Many recommend using a pin brush or a slicker brush to help maintain their appearance. This breed does not require an excessive amount of grooming but routine care is important.

The Maltichon does enjoy both indoor and outdoor playtime with family and are energetic. To keep them feeling healthy, a balance of meat-based protein and micronutrients, as well as healthy carbs and fats are important. Maltichon owners recommend feeding this breed two meals a day, spaced about twelve hours apart. This will help to ensure the dog is provided with the proper nutrients he needs. It is also crucial to remember to provide your dog with proper dental care. It is suggested that his teeth get cleaned a minimum of three times a week. Failing to keep his teeth clean can contribute to health issues. Although properly cleaning his teeth will take some practice to get good at, in time, this will become easier for you and your pup.
