Overview
The Coton originated in the island of Madagascar in the early 20th century. They are still considered to be a rare breed in the United States, where there are only perhaps 5,000 total. The American Kennel Club does not yet recognize the Coton, and as such, there is no uniform standard.
Character
The Coton de Tulear is an adaptable and boisterous companion. They thrive on being an integral part of the family, and do not like to be left alone for an extended length of time. They are content to be on your lap or at your feet, but are also instantly ready for play or a ride in the car.

Does your dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Coton de Tulear is alert and territorial. They form strong attachments to both Master and family. They will alert to danger by barking, but only when it is necessary. They are extremely intelligent and love all of the attention they can get. The Coton is very social and enjoys outings and experiences. They get along well with other pets and children.
Care
The Coton requires frequent brushing and combing to keep the coat free of matting. Special attention must be given to the undercoat. They may also be given a cropped cut. This breed has no significant genetic diseases built into it due to its rarity. Breeders have been very careful to keep the Coton line pure.

New dog owners, much like new parents, often have trouble deciding when it is necessary to seek medical attention for their dog or new puppy. The most basic rule of thumb is, if your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet. When is it time to see the Vet?
Coat
Coton is French for cotton. Hence, this breeds coat is fluffy and cottony, not silky. There is a long topcoat that is dry, dirt shedding, and non-oily. Most but not all Cotons will have a fine, thin, downy undercoat.
Training
The Coton de Tulear is bright and intelligent, but may be slow to mature. They may be difficult to housebreak. They do well with early socialization and obedience training. They require firm, consistent, and loving direction and do very well with a lot of praise and direction. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Coton De Tulear puppy. However, if you’re looking for not just a housebreaking method, but are also interested in adapting your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons, crate training is for you.
Activity
This breed is an indoor companion. They do not require high levels of exercise, but do need a short walk every day. They also appreciate play sessions as often as possible. They adjust and adapt well to apartment, condo, and urban living. They have the capability and endurance for long hikes. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy. You can help your pup learn to be friendly by properly socializing him/her to new people, places, and experiences.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Coton De Tulear puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required. Even the most responsible puppy owner makes mistakes. Read up on these 15 common dog owner mistakes. Sometimes it just takes changing your own behavior to make your dog a little angel.

Do Coton De Tulear puppies shed?

I have 2 Cotton's and neither one of them shed. They are also hypoallergenic for allergy sufferers. Wonderful dogs!

No, you might find little puffs of hair laying around but you can just pick it up and throw it away. Coton De Tulear's are hypoallergenic.

Cotons do shed, but not like a regular dog. They shed like we humans do. Cotons have hair, not fur. You will brush most loose hair that comes out. You will need to brush them regularly like you do your own to prevent knots and matting. But, no, Coton's do not shed like regular dogs because they do not have fur.

Does the Coton De Tulear breed grow more than 15 pounds?

Yes! There is an offspring of the breed, the tall coton, which is larger and taller which can grow to 18 to 20 pounds. My baby girl is 21 lbs on a good day and can get up to 24 if allowed to overeat.

Anonymous

The Coton ranges in weight from 8 lbs - 15 lbs. But we have one that loves to eat and she weighs almost 20 lbs.

Have known personally Cotons that have gotten up to 18lbs. But, the average is usually about 12-13lbs.

I am thinking of adopting a young adult, male "long-legged" Coton. I have not seen the dog in person as yet, but I have taken care of a friend's Coton so I'm quite familiar with and love them. I am told this Coton weighs 25 lbs. Is that possible, or is it likely mixed with another breed? He looks like my friend's purebred Coton in photos.

We have a male Coton who is 8 years old. He ways 27 pounds which is heavy for the breed but in no way would I say he is out of shape. He was the largest of the litter and is tall and long.

I am looking to get a Coton puppy I found for sale and currently own a Bichon Frise and I am wondering if Cotons are as hard to keep white as the Bichons are?

Give your dog bottled spring water and the eye stain virtually disappears!

I have a white Coton and a black and white Coton. The white one stains around the eyes when I don't use Angel Eyes; however, the rest of him stays white with routine grooming with the use of whitening shampoo. I do not have a problem with eye-staining with my black and white Coton.

Does a Coton De Tulear need a long walk or a short walk?

in between long and short. cotons aren't couch potatoes and they aren't marathon dogs either. a medium walk.

We usually walk about 2 miles...it really depends on your coton. One of my coton's has a lot of energy and is still very energetic after a 2 mile walk; however, the other coton is usually pooped after 2 miles. Both look forward to walking.
