But, above all, the most important thing is that you take home a healthy dog with whom you can be happy for many years.
Achieving all this and guaranteeing it is no easy task. This is where the responsible breeding that we develop in breeders like Las Almenas comes into play. We are a breeder for Bichon Maltese Breeder, Biewer, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Pomeranian, Yorkshire and Dachshund and we are specialized in toy and mini breeds.
If you are thinking of buying a puppy and want to know if the Maltese Bichon is the right breed for you, read on and you will find out how we can help you in our Maltese Bichon cattery in Asturias.
Apart from the details and curiosities about the responsible breeding that we carry out in our Maltese Bichon cattery, we recommend you to know what are the main characteristics of this breed through our complete Guide.
Responsible breeding, the essence of our Maltese Bichon breeder
Behind each of our puppies is hidden the work, love and constant care that the whole Las Almenas team dedicates to them. As breeders of Bichon Maltese we strive, even before birth, to obtain healthy dogs, with long longevity, consistent and cheerful temperament, and that are loyal and intelligent. Without forgetting the importance of the beauty of this breed with distinguished carriage and high quality coat.
To achieve all these desirable characteristics in a Maltese we cannot leave anything to chance. Their care, feeding and education influence the particularities of each dog. That is why we respect their times and vital stages and offer them the best possible care and facilities.
How is the reproduction in our Maltese Bichon breeder?
One of the advantages of acquiring dogs from a responsible breeder is that you can meet and see the parents of your puppy. This way you will be able to verify that they are purebred dogs, whose character and health are unbeatable, which assures you that there are no hereditary defects.
As with most breeds, female Maltese Bichons usually have their first heat between six and nine months of age. However, we usually wait until she is over 12 months old to breed. In this way we ensure that she has finished her development.
In the case of males, in the Maltese Bichon cattery we also respect the ages of these specimens, which start at 12 months of age. Usually, the maximum age to breed a Maltese is around 7 years old, since at this age fertility begins to decrease.
In our Maltese Bichon cattery, the pregnant mother enjoys the greatest privileges of respect and care for her condition. During her pregnancy, which lasts between 58 and 62 days, she is pampered with the greatest conscientiousness in terms of feeding and activity.
Birth of the puppies in a Maltese Bichon cattery
At the time of birth, the mother is never alone in our Maltese Bichon cattery. We are at her side to reassure her and help her during this delicate moment. And, moreover,
We have veterinary service 24 hours a day in case any medical intervention is necessary.
The number of pups that this breed usually has varies according to the size of the female and her age. It is normal for female Bichon Maltese to have a minimum of three puppies, and a maximum of eight.
From the moment they are born, the puppies spend the first weeks with their mother, watched at all times so that no puppy is left without food. For this reason, the litters grow in a homogeneous and balanced way. And if there is any problem, the Las Almenas team is in charge of giving bottles every 3 hours, day and night.
The intensity of the attention we give to the new litter is complete. We dedicate twenty-four hours a day to their care. We maintain the maximum hygiene in the area, as well as in their muzzles so that they can suckle and breathe without problems.
When they are a few weeks old, in our Maltese Bichon breeder, we start weaning them progressively and at the same time we encourage their education and socialization with other dogs they live with in Las Almenas.
In the meantime, we carry out all the veterinary requirements to offer you the best sanitary guarantees. Our responsibility, as a Maltese Bichon breeder, obliges us to carry out a strict veterinary control with several examinations, periodic deworming and vaccination.
In this way, we ensure that the puppy is perfectly prepared for its new family.
5 reasons to get a dog from a Bichon Maltese Breeder
If you are determined to increase your family and want to adopt or buy a Bichon Maltese Breeder, the most reasonable thing to do is to buy it from a specialized Maltese Bichon breeder, since it is the only place that offers you maximum guarantees:
Are you going to dare to bring any dog into your home without knowing anything about it? If it is a nervous dog, it will transmit instability to all your family. If it is barking or rebellious, it will transmit uneasiness, and if it is very energetic and your family is not, then it will get on your nerves.
If you adopt a dog without a pedigree or you think you are acquiring a Maltese without any kind of control or guarantee, you will have to assume the risk of not knowing what kind of animal lives in your home. Keep in mind that there are many scams of this type on a daily basis that result in a real problem for the dog and for the family environment. Therefore, keep this in mind, since your puppy will live with you and your family for many years.
If you buy your dog from a Maltese Bichon breeder, you can be sure that the parents are purebred and that the characteristics and behavior of your new puppy correspond to the breed. You will not have any unpleasant surprises.
If you acquire a dog in a regulated center, such as a Maltese Bichon breeder, you also make sure that your new puppy has the corresponding vaccinations and deworming.
During the time spent in our Maltese Bichon cattery, the puppy also receives quality food and is kept in an environment of maximum hygiene that meets its needs and activities, as you can see when you visit us.
3-Guarantee of sociability
Sociabilizing a Maltese Bichon puppy is the best way to guarantee that the dog will grow up in a balanced way and will be able to adapt quickly to its new home without fear, trauma or behavioral problems.
For this reason, every Maltese Bichon breeder that follows a responsible breeding, has to facilitate the socialization of the puppies.
As it happens with other breeds that we breed in Las Almenas, between 3 and 12 weeks of life, we facilitate the coexistence of the dog with other animals, as well as people, environments and noises. It is essential to expose the puppies to these stimuli so that they can relate them to positive experiences. If we do not do this, it is possible that the dog will be fearful or distrustful in situations that he does not know and stress him.
Therefore, if you want a dog with a sociable and calm temperament that will make the whole family happy, socialization from a very early age is essential.

As a Maltese Bichon breeder, at Las Almenas we know all our puppies and also their parents. After months of caring for them at all times we know their temperament, we check that their health is correct and that they respond to the physical characteristics of their breed.
That’s why the dog you take home is the chosen one among the chosen ones.

We not only choose the best dog for your family, but the best family for our puppies. They are our family and when you take one of them home, we will keep in touch and you will become part of our Las Almenas community.
