Need help with Coton de Tulear names? Cotton dah what? That’s the reaction I often receive when I tell someone that my dog is a Coton de Tulear. If you’re a Coton dog owner you’ve probably received the same reaction at one time or another.
The most widely accepted Coton de Tulear pronunciation is “Co tawn day too lee are” and they are often called Coton Dogs (or Cotton Dogs) because of their unique coat that feels just like cotton. The Coton part of their name is french for cotton and Tulear was derived from their city of origination - Tulear in Madagascar.
I have also seen numerous misspellings such as Cotton de Tulear, Coton du Tulear, Coton de Tuleer, Coton di Tulear. Your puppy doesn’t care how you say it or how you spell it, since all they’ll hear is the name you give it and the tone of your voice.
