Welcome Coton Lovers:

Coton Coats

I thought I'd remind everyone about a couple of excellent posts to our website recently. The first is a must-have for anyone with a Coton. Thanks to Lana for sharing this wealth of information with us!!! You can find the post at Tips for Coton de Tulear Coat Problems or Coat Changes.

This isn't just for those of you experiencing problems, there are all kinds of tips for enhancing your grooming experience - such as product recommendations, grooming techniques, and where to go for more information about our Cotons.

Here are some of the great product recommendations from that post:

The 2nd post I wanted to bring to your attention is just plain fun. What are your Coton's Quirks?
