About Coton Tulear
Country of Origin, History of the breed
Madagascar is the country
of origin of the Coton Tulear. It is presumed
that in the 16th century sailors had brought
the ancestors of the Coton to the port city
of Tulear (present day Toliara) in Madagascar
from Spain and Portugal. It is opined that
the Coton is related to the Bichon dog family.
The breed had become virtually
unknown over the course of time and has been
reintroduced to Europe and America in the
last 20 years. Even then however the Coton
remained a favorite companion of the wealthy
residents of Tulear (Southern Madagascar)

Description of the Dog
‘Coton’ is the French
equivalent of cotton. The most conspicuous feature
of the Coton de Tulear is its cottony or fluffy
coat for which it has got its name. The dog has
a long topcoat. Its fluffy hair covers its thin
forelegs and hind legs too alongside nearly the
whole of the dog’s body. The ears are fluffy
too. They are set high, triangular in shape and
hang down alongside the face. Some dogs have slightly
yellowish markings on their ears. The dogs are colored
either white or black and white. The breeders prefer
the pure white colored dogs.
The dog’s muzzle is straight
and leads into facial features that are dark and
prominent and are all set against profuse hair.
The neck is strong and slightly arched. There is
no dewlap on the neck. The dogs have a lively, intelligent,
bright and merry expression. Though small the breed
is well developed and strong. The feet are small
and arched and usually have black pads. The tail
is set low and is tapering. As the dog moves the
tail curls and is carried over its back.
Male: 10-12 inches tall
Female: 8.5-10.5 inches
Male: 9-15 lbs
Temperament of the Dog
Coton de Tulear dogs are friendly,
affectionate and gentle. They are also very intelligent,
playful and alert. These are sociable dogs that
get along very well with children and other pets
(including dogs). They are very attached to their
owners and their homes. They stay eager to please
their owners always with tricks and surprises. Some
Cotons have the habit of walking on their hind legs.
They do so to please people around them.
The Coton is a quick learner. It
responds well to training. It does not have a mind
of its own. It does as it is trained to do. Since
the dog loves to please people it is easier to train
it with praise rather than with punishment. However,
the dog can be a little stubborn at times and may
not housebreak easily.
Coton dogs usually love meeting
new people and stay curious about strangers. However,
some dogs exhibit shyness or cautiousness in new
situations. With proper training the dog usually
overcomes such shyness or cautiousness.
Coton Tulaer dogs are vocal animals.
They grunt, bark and make other noises for having
fun or otherwise. However, the nature of barking
and staying alert goes a long way to make the Coton
excellent as a watchdog.
Being physically very active the
dogs get the exercise necessary for them even while
staying indoors. However, they enjoy accompanying
their owners for long runs or walks. The dogs enjoy
swimming too. Coton Tulear dogs have been known
to follow their masters on horseback for many miles.
The dogs may be engaged in various dog sports like
agility skills trials and catch. It is best if the
dogs are taken out at least for a walk everyday
apart from being provided other exercising opportunities.
Coton Tulear dogs can become well
–suited to apartment life. The dogs remain
active even while being indoors. Hence they get
enough exercise even while remaining at home. Though
a small yard may be set for them to stay and move
around they may even do fine without it.
The dog has long, light-textured
hair. The loose dead hair needs to be brushed and
combed out regularly. There may be excess hair between
the pads of the feet and the inner ears. These need
to be removed. Time to time trimming of the coat
will also help keep it healthier. However, one must
not scissor the coat. Washing of the dog should
be restricted to only twice a year.
The breed has not been known to
be prone to any particular health-related concerns
or issues. In general these are healthy dogs. Some
dogs however had been reported to develop stomach
