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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

No, you might find little puffs of hair laying around but you can just pick it up and throw it away

Contons 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...as to prevent knots and matting. But, no, they do not shed like regular dogs because they do not have fur.

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

Not really. You can expect occasional long hairs on your clothing bit not the typical dog shedding. During the change of seasons, you may see "coton" balls as the fluffy undercoat thins for the hot summer.

I have not seen the dog in person as yet, but I have take care of a friend's Coton so I'm quite familiar with and love them. I am told this Coton weighs 25 lbs. (not overweight looking in photos). Is that possible, or is it likely mixed with another breed? He looks like my friend's pure bred 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.

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.

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.

They are not house trained. I would like your suggestions and/or advice on house training them. If you have any.

I purchased both of my Coton's when they were puppies and they were not difficult to house train at all. I took them out routinely. They apparently have an instinct to sniff around and find just the right spot to take care of business. I praised them when they took care of business outside and scold them if they tried to go inside. They are very intelligent dogs and try to do whatever it takes to please you. One of my coton's will sit in front of me with his front left paw up and scoot backwards when he wants to go out. The other one will climb up on me, look at me intently and let out faint barks to let me know he has to go out. One trick you can try is giving them a treat when they do their business outside. Coton's love treats and remember what it takes to get one. Make sure you only give a treat when they do their business outside. you should have them trained in no time.

The above comment is good....also...don't bring them back inside until they potty. Bring them in immediately once they pee and poop and give them a treat. You will need to stay outside with them for the first month or so each time they go so you can watch for them to potty. They will quickly learn that they can go inside and get a treat if they go bathroom...then if you have a fenced in yard, you may be able to just let them go outside alone with you watching them from the door...then call them as soon as you see their potty and bring them in and give them a treat..that will teach them to go inside once they potty...some Cotons potty as soon as they go outside, while others need to run around and play first...if they go potty first, bring them in, give the treat and then go outside and play with them. After a while, they will learn not to go inside because if they mess inside they get a fussing and no treat and sent outside with the poop so they can learn that is where you want it.

Cotons obtained either directly or indirectly through puppy mills have lower price tags than those from quality breeders such as those from members of the Coton Tulear Club of America. CTCA members and their dogs are held to the highest breeding standards. The testing and care is expensive. This is passed to the consumer at a premium price.
