TiaCotons "Tia" is the Malagasy word for "to Love"
My Coton de Tuléar dogs are bred with the goal of your puppy being a happy, healthy puppy. I carefully choose the Sire and Dam for my litters. My Cotons complement each other and I hope for wonderful puppies from them that will be an asset to the breed. I only breed Coton de Tuléar dogs.
All TiaCotons puppies are sold with a written contract and they have a health exam by their veterinarian. My parent Cotons are healthy and have excellent dispositions to pass on to their offspring. I believe in a holistic approach to breeding. TiaCotons dogs are registered with the American Coton Club because I believe in the principles of the club and TiaCotons pedigrees are issued from this club.
With new technology an owner can DNA test their Coton. The dog breed will be listed on the breed certificate, COI (coefficient of inbreeding) is part of the information given, there will also be information on the genetics of the dog. American Coton Club breeders test Cotons using Embark DNA testing.
What can I expect to pay for a Coton de Tulear?
Please note, I no longer post photos of my puppies online. My puppy photos were taken from my website and used on a puppy broker's Facebook page selling puppies. They had my puppies photo with a different phone number than mine listing my puppies for sale. My puppies were sold long ago, it was deceiving for people looking for a puppy thinking they might be receiving one of my puppies that the puppy broker listed on the site. Beware of where you purchase your Coton from when looking for a Coton de Tulear dog. I will share photos of my puppies with people who inquire about them after we have a conversation on the phone. Thank you for your interest in my Coton puppies!
A TiaCotons Coton de Tuléar puppy is priceless! If you are considering a Coton de Tuléar puppy from TiaCotons these are the steps in the placement process:
Step 1: A telephone interview will help me learn more about you and your desire to have one of my Coton de Tuléar puppies join your family.
Step 2: You will be notified after the litter has been born. Your puppy is handled by me as soon as he/she is born and on a daily basis from the time of birth. Your puppy associates human touch as something pleasant before opening his/her eyes. I start the "Super Dog Program" after the third day of birth and continue the program until the sixteenth day after birth. When the puppies are four weeks of age I expose them to many different types of stimulation, surfaces, sights and sounds. The puppies spend the day in my puppy ex-pen area where they experience the normal noises of my home. At eight weeks of age they are going for rides in my car, in their crates, so they will adjust to car rides easily when they go to their homes. I work on crate training at nine weeks of age. From the time the puppies are able to eliminate on their own I work on potty training to pee pads, grass and pea gravel so your puppy will be comfortable eliminating on different types of surfaces. At nine weeks of age the puppies practice walking on lead. They also enjoy playing outside on the agility equipment I have for them, weather permitting.
My goal is to breed responsibly and to raise happy, healthy, well-adjusted puppies.
Step 3: Puppies will be released to their new homes at ten weeks of age. If you will be traveling by air the puppy must travel with the owner in the cabin of the airplane. The travel bag (size large) for puppies that I prefer is found at the following web site http://www.sturdiproducts.com.
Included in my contract - This Coton de Tuléar puppy is to be accompanied by a responsible adult in the passenger section of the airplane, bus or other conveyance during any transport throughout the lifetime of the dog.
