Coton De Tulear

Coton De Tulear

The Coton De Tulear is one of the most clownish pets you can have. They love to shower love on their family and in turn receive it, especially in the form of kisses and caresses. A family dog that wants to be involved with the family, the Coton De Tulear becomes very attached to their owners. The Coton De Tulear will be more than happy to sit in your lap or trot alongside you or snuggle at your feet.

Fairly easy to train, they are quick to learn and even though they are known to be stubborn, they listen well with motivational techniques involving treats and rewards. Even though they are an indoors dog, you might experience some difficulty in housebreaking them. Usually a friendly breed, the Coton De Tulear can shy away from people if they’re not in the habit of meeting visitors while growing up.

The Coton De Tulear dogs make good watchdogs but not-so-good guard dogs. If they sense an intruder, they will immediately bark and sometimes, growl or grunt; but once they stop barking, they’ll go and make friends with the intruder, thereby not making them ideal as guard dogs. The Coton De Tulear dogs are excellent around children and adapt really well around other pets, especially dogs.

The Coton De Tulears are always ready to play and perform tricks if that will make their owners happy. When it comes to their exercise, a daily walk is all they need and if you have an enclosed backyard, to run around in. They love to swim, which can also be a wonderful form of exercise for them and their stamina allows them to follow you steadily while you cycle, if you’re looking for a companion.

History:

“Coton” is French for cotton and the breed, Coton De Tulear is said to have been given this name because of its cotton-like fur! Hailing from the island of Madagascar, the Coton De Tulear is related to the Havanese and the Bolognese. Although the details are a little foggy as to when the breed landed in Madagascar, they were soon the most preferred pets and a symbol of wealth amongst families in Tulear. Known as the ‘Royal Dog of Madagascar’, the breed was just recently registered with the United Kennel Club of England, and is becoming an increasingly popular pet outside his native land.
