Our Commitment as Breeders
As breeders we are committed to preserving and perpetuating the quality and breed standards for the Coton de Tulear. Our goal is to produce puppies that are of superior physical quality. We further desire to produce puppies that show no clinical signs of illness or structural abnormalities and puppies that are well-mannered in temperament. Once our puppies reach adulthood it is our hope and purpose that they meet all standards in structure and display the appropriate character and personality as outlined in the breed standard.
In keeping with that commitment we now do DNA genetic testing on all our dogs before including them in our breeding program. This helps to ensure that we are not breeding two dogs that have the potential to produce puppies with a genetic defect. In addition, our dogs receive a thorough veterinarian health examination to ensure that they meet all breed standards for structure and character. This includes, but is not limited to, an examination of the eyes, ears, heart, patellas, testes, vulva, bite, teeth, hair and skin, and over all disposition. We further provide a health guarantee for all our puppies.
