Factors Which Influence Maltipoo Price
As explained earlier, there are factors which influence maltipoo price so it is no wonder why you may find different prices for the same look of maltipoo. Here are some factors which influence maltipoo price according to the Trending Breeds site.
- The Reputation of the Breeder
An experienced maltipoo breeder usually sets a higher price for the maltipoo that they have. It is because they usually try to consistently produce the highest quality, healthiest puppies and also establish breed standards,
- The Puppy’s Age
Usually, people look for puppies when they want to have one as soon as the puppies are available for sale. They are looking for puppies because they do not want to miss out on the important socialization that they can do with the puppies. Usually, people are not interested in older puppies so no wonder why older puppies are usually cheaper than the younger ones.
- The Current Popularity of the Breed
Let’s say that a breed or in this case a crossbreed is in a sudden surge in popularity. If it happens, usually the price will be higher as well. However, when it is not very popular, the price is usually cheaper.
- Registration of the Dog
If the parents of the puppy or the litter are registered with groups like the AKC, the price of the puppy can be affected. It is important for you to note that crossbreeds are able to be registered now, get an ID number and take part in various dog sport competitions such as obedience and agility trials.
- Genetic Tests and Health Screenings
If the breeders are quality, they will test the parent dog before they breed. It is done to rule out the possibility of inherited health conditions which are passed on to the litter. There will be a lot of vet visits after breeding to make sure that the pregnancy is normal and as a result, it may produce healthy and thriving litter. This process makes the price of a puppy more expensive.
- The Type and Color of the Coat
A certain hair type or color of puppy which is in high demand can cost higher.
- Size of the Dog
Usually, puppies which will grow small when they are fully grown are more expensive than puppies which are predicted to have normal size. As you are able to see from the information about the price of a dog based on the size above, the teacup one is more expensive than the other sizes. However, note that not all breeders are honest. Some of them may convince you that the puppy will grow as you want, but actually not. So, that’s why choosing a reputable breeder is important since they will not fool the buyers. For buyers, they also need to know the sizes to expect based on the parentage of the puppy to help them avoid being fooled.
F1 generation puppies are usually cheaper because it only consists of one maltese and one poodle to create them. F2 generations and beyond usually need more time to create because the breeder needs to wait until their F1 dogs are old enough to be bred and then wait again for the next generation before they can be bred. So, this effort makes the puppies more expensive.
Let’s say that one or both parents of a maltipoo have placed high in the show ring, the record of their winnings will be entered on the pedigree of the puppy and the price of the puppy will automatically be higher.
- Location of the Breeder
Breeders in or near large metropolitan areas will set higher prices for the puppies that they have. It is because they market puppies to the audience who have a tendency to earn higher than rural people do.
Well, that’s all about maltipoo prices, getting the cheapest one and the factors that affect the prices. Last but not least, I want to remind you that if you are a muslim, it is forbidden for you to have a dog. Instead, you can have other animals like cats, ducks, sheeps and some other animals.
