The Coton de Tulear : A Complete and Comprehensive Owners Guide To: Buying, Owning, Health, Grooming, Training, Obedience, Understanding and
by Michael Stonewood




Overview -
The Coton de Tulear is a small breed of dog that originates from Madagascar, as is actually the island's nation dog. The breed is named after the city of Tul ar, which is located in Madagascar, and for its cotton-like coat texture. The breed is believed to be a descendant of the Tenerife dog that has been mated with a breed native to Madagascar during the 16th century. The Coton de Tulear is a member of the Bichon typing and is still closely related to the Bichon Tenerife and the Tenerife Terrier. The Coton de Tulear has always been a companion dog and has never been feral. Unlike most other breeds of dog developed in Madagascar, the Coton de Tulear has never been used to hunt wild boar or alligators, as its size and strength prove. The Coton de Tulear also has a nonexistent prey drive which further suggests that the breed has always been a companion dog. The breed's cotton-like coat is believed to be a result of a single gene mutation. The Coton de Tulear has a medium-to-long coat that is considered to be hair rather than fur. Despite having long hair the breed is considered to be hypoallergenic as it barely ever sheds once it is full grown - however, like the Poodle and Havanese, the Coton de Tulear will shed its puppy coat. The breed's coat comes in three standardize colorations: white, black and white, and tricolor (which is a mixture of black, white and tan). As a whole the Coton de Tulear is known to be a highly affectionate, intelligent and playful breed. They fit perfectly well into a family household environment. Despite their small size, it is recommended to keep a Coton de Tulear in a house, rather than an apartment, as they are very vocal and will grunt, bark and whine often while playing.

Before purchasing any pet it is important to understand that as a pet owner you are responsible for the care and wellbeing of your pet. It is important to try and learn as much as you can about the animal you are considering to keep as a pet to make sure that your lifestyle, household and financial status are suited to provide your pet with the best possible care. This guide has been designed to provide you with both precise and concise information about a Coton de Tulear's basic needs to help you provide your pet with the best quality care practices. This guide will give an in-depth explanation on training your Coton de Tulear, raising your Coton de Tulear from a puppy, grooming, health care and everything in between

"The Coton de Tulear: A Complete and Comprehensive Owners Guide to: Buying, Owning, Health, Grooming, Training, Obedience, Understanding and Caring for Your Coton de Tulear," by Michael Stonewood is the perfect purchase or gift for a first time Coton de Tulear owner. This guide includes sections on caring for a puppy, breeding, health care, training, the basic cost of owning an Coton de Tulear and much more.
