Coton de Tulear Clubs are a great way to network with experts on the breed. These clubs, devoted exclusively to this rare breed, as well as kennel clubs where the breed is registered, can help direct you to potential reputable breeders.
Where can I find a good Coton de Tulear breeder? This is the single most asked question I receive. I always recommend going through the Coton clubs to find a responsible breeder so that you can be sure that the best interests of the breed is always a top priority. These breeders have to adhere to a strict code of ethics and are extremely knowledgeable about these dogs.
The clubs take great care in ensuring that the best characteristics of the "Cotton Dog" are preserved by doing very thorough genetic testing.
Don't be deterred by the higher prices of puppies obtained from a club. Many people who opt for cheaper puppies from less knowledgeable or less reputable breeders can end up paying much more in the long run for dogs with health issues that can be quite substantial.
Contact one of the clubs listed below to find out where there is a good breeder near you. Buying from a breeder who belongs to a club is extra assurance that your puppy will be happy and healthy.
