We are doing limited puppy visits by appointment only. The visits depend on a couple of things: Puppies have to be at least 7 weeks old. You must not have been sick in the past 10 days. Also, if there is a outbreak of to the Covid in our area we reserve the right to cancel any puppy appointments. We do not want to risk getting sick and not being able to properly take care of our puppies and dogs. I am happy to update you weekly with photo's, updates, and videos. Thanks for your patience during this time, we greatly appreciate it.
We are very proud and passionate about hand raising our puppies. We love the process, watching the puppies grow and thrive. We socialize, snuggle, and play with our puppies. It is easy to get very attached to them. We love to know where our puppies are going, and getting to know the families that will be raising them. Cotons make excellent companion pets, they are very loving, and loyal. My dogs are like velcro to us. They just want to be the center of our world. They truly are amazing companion pets.
***PLEASE NOTE**** We are trying to keep up with all your inquiries to the best of our ability. It has been an unusually busy few months with people wanting to add puppies to their families.

We just want to say thank you to all the loving families who have added a Cuddly Coton puppy into their home. At this time we want to pray for our country during this COVID 19 crisis. Due to the alarming rate this is spreading we are no longer doing puppy visits. I hope you respect this at this time. We want to keep everyone safe.
Please read: We do not give breeding rights, and our puppies are sold as companion pets. If you want AKC limited registration please email me so I can explain the process to you.

The Coton De Tulear temperament is affectionate and smart. And as you read on I think you will agree with me. The Coton De Tulear, or Coton for short, gets the first part of its name from their cotton like coat (‘Coton’ is cotton in French). The second part of the name Tulear is a seaport in Madagascar.
There are several theories about how the Coton De Tulear came to be.
One theory is the Coton De Tulear dog was bred to accompany women on long sea voyages. Another theory says this breed was bred to be used as ratters aboard ships.
As to how they got to Madagascar, a final theory is the Coton was the sole survivor of a shipwreck in Madagascar. No matter how they arrived, the Coton De Tulear soon became a favorite of the royal court and wealthy households in Madagascar. They were brought to the United States during the late 1970s.
The Coton De Tulear dog is best known for their undying love for their humans. Whether you’re lounging around watching Netflix, shuffling between rooms or taking a drive, the Coton will be with you every step of the way. Coton De Tulear dogs are extremely intelligent. They are an observant breed who learns quickly and can adapt to their owner's needs.The Coton De Tulear is a boisterous and happy breed. They are true people-pleasers and are happiest spending time with their humans. Cotons have a cheerful, sweet personality that makes them wonderful therapy dogs.
Because they are so people-oriented, they tend to form a strong bond with their family and do not like to be separated from them.
Coton de Tulear dogs have also been used a lot for therapy dogs. They help people with PTSD, and people who suffer from depression and anxiety. They also are called the "anti-depressant" dogs. They really do offer unconditional love and attention.
This is a breed that may bark once or twice when the doorbell rings, but they are not obsessive barkers. Don’t expect a Coton to be a guard dog. The only thing intruders would have to look out for is being licked to death!
We are located in Rockford, Michigan. We also have a puppy nanny to travel with our puppies on the airplane, it is expensive but they have one on one time with our nanny, only the best for our puppies. We only hire the best puppy transporters to accompany our babies to you. For more information we can discuss timing, process, and door delivery or airport delivery of your choice. We prefer to meet you in person.
I am very passionate about the Coton de Tulear breed, they are the sweetest dogs we have ever had the pleasure of owning and raising. My puppies are raised in the middle of my living room with lots of love and attention. They are well socialized and spoiled by the time they go to their forever homes. My 24 year old daughter and all her friends all always handling and loving on the puppies. My grandchildren also enjoy the puppies and they are very gentle and kind. We take pride in making sure each family and the new puppy is a good match. It is important that my puppies go to forever, loving homes that will nurture, love and give them excellent homes. Coton puppies are very sweet, calm, excellent with children and other pets. They are very kind hearted, affectionate, and easy going. This breed is very intelligent and easy to train. The nice thing about this breed is they are hypo-allegenic and non shedding and great for people who suffer from allergies like my own daughter. This breed loves people, and they truly are the sweetest dogs.
PLEASE fill out family questionnaire and forward to my email if you want to start the process of bringing your puppy into your home. (See family questionnaire page on the website). I will also do a phone interview with you after I see your family questionnaire. Deposits are first come first serve. We do not do visits during the week, this our time to take care of the dogs and puppies, and much needed family time. All questions are welcomed, and we welcome you into our home to visit your future puppy. Puppy visits are by appointment only and they have to be at least 7 weeks old for a visit.
Important things to know before buying a puppy. These puppies require alot of care the first couple months in your home. They need to be let outside to potty every two hours and given praise and praise and praise to have a well trained puppy. The care doesn't stop there. If you have smaller children or other pets, you will have to limit the amount of time spent with the new puppy the first few months. The puppies still require a lot of rest and they do not need to be overplayed with by children or other pets. They need adequate rest as they grow. Ten minutes three times a day is all they can handle when they are first brought into their new home. Exhaustion and dehydration go hand in hand. You don't want your puppy to be rushed into the Emergency vet because it didn't have adequate time to rest.
They also require grooming, brushing, and bathing. They need to be groomed every 6 to 8 weeks, so when considering this breed, remember their coat does need brushing a couple times a week. I recommend brushing often to keep the coat from matting.
Bringing a puppy into your family is a big commitment. The Coton can live 14 to 17 years. I want my puppies to be in a loving, safe, secure, nurturing environment. I want to know that this is a serious commitment for you as well. Deposits are non refundable because I want you to be 100 percent committed to your puppy. The exception is if something comes up and you cannot take your puppy when it is ready, you may transfer your deposit to the next litter one time. Notice must be given by the time the puppy is six weeks old if you have to transfer your deposit to the next litter to be far to others wanting a puppy.

I am a small hobby breeder so we can dedicate the time, attention, and energy to our litters of puppies. Each puppy gets individualized attention and love. Our puppies are held, loved, cuddled and socialized, and we believe in raising them with children. Our puppies are home raised, we are not a kennel. We are located in Rockford, Michigan. We are very passionate about raising healthy, happy, and socialized puppies.
The parents are AKC registered, and health checked. They are genetically tested to rule out IVDD and Bandera's Neotnatal disease, and 181 other genetic disorders. My veterinarian checks hips, knees and eyes. We only use the Sires and Dam deemed healthy and free of genetic defects as our select breeding dogs. We also carefully study our blood lines to ensure they are not closely related.
