Our Nursery

Written by on April 16, 2013 in Our Cotons

From time to time we have puppies we  place in terrific homes.

Mika and Bono as of March 26th, are the proud parents of 3 new puppies (1 girl & 2 boys).

Calamity and Chili as of April 8th, 2013 are the proud parents of 6 new puppies (5 girls & 1 boy).

We are current members of the USACTC, and are a Code of Ethics  Breeder.  We are very careful to follow  the FCI standards and, as a result, only produce a few carefully planned  litters a year.

Coton de Tulear puppies

At A Touch of Class  Cotons our goal is to produce healthy, happy and well-socialized puppies that  are equally happy as your constant companion, in a show ring, or doing  pet-assisted therapy.

Our puppies are  whelped in our bedroom and spend their first three weeks there, being handled  daily by myself, my husband and our daughter.   At four weeks of age they are then moved into our family room so that  they can be exposed to the sights and sounds of everyday life.  They are at that point introduced to our  grandchildren and played with and handled by all.  When the pups are 7 weeks old, each is  individually tested for the purpose of recording their dominant personality  traits.  This “personality evaluation”  helps us to place each puppy in the right environment for their individual  personality traits.

Because Cotons de Tulear  are  companion animals, they thrive on human contact and can become despondent if  they are left alone in a kennel every day.   Therefore, we look for homes where our puppies are ensured  loving,  constant human interaction.  We totally  disapprove of having them placed in a kennel situation.

Our concern does not end with a puppy’s  placement.  Coton puppies want to please  and will try to adapt to the needs of their new owners.  However, in case there are some bumps in the  road of ownership, we are here to help with any training, grooming, nutrition  or any other issues that tend to arise.   We do not sell our puppies and then disappear.  We encourage our puppy owners to call us with  any questions they may have.

We will do  our best to ensure that each puppy becomes a happy member of its new  family.  Before going to their new home,  our puppies have received a veterinary examination with accompanying health  certificate and their first set(s) of vaccinations, wormed and  micro-chipped.  Our puppies are also  fully litter box trained by 8 weeks of age.

Our contract includes a two year written health guarantee against  genetic anomalies, and are replaced upon the return of the affected puppy.  Our puppies are a lifetime commitment to us.
