Malti Poo Q&A
I have 2 Maltipoos. I have trimmed the hair over the eyes on one and keep the other in a top knot. The only issue with the hair over the eyes is that if it is constantly in the eyes, it could cause irritation. Maltipoos eyes are no more "sensitive" to light than any other dog.
I have three Maltipoos. Their hair straight more like Maltese. I trim the hair around their eyes and also their bangs. My dogs do not have a problem with crusty eyes or tear stains. I have noticed that when the hair is too long they walk around with their heads down looking at the ground.
