Nurturing the mind, body, and spirit of your puppy…with training, exercise, and love!
We are members of the Madagscar Coton de Tulear Club. We have been breeding these beautiful and sweet Coton de Tulear puppies since 2007 and loving every moment with the precious puppies before they go to their new homes.
Puppies have arrived!! March 2021…You can see pictures and videos of them on the Current Litters page.
We are honored to help raise these puppies and blessed to get to know the families that they live with for the rest of their lives. Our puppies are great with children because they are raised with our children! If you are interested in a wonderful coton companion, please contact us.

We love walking with our puppies when they are old enough to follow us up the mountain where we live!

Cotons are such a special breed. They are attractive, hypo-allergenic, and the right combination of playful, athletic, affectionate, and gentle. Cotons are thrilled to go for long walks, even several times a day, but they are not demanding of exercise, especially as adults. You can run and hike with a coton, they will go as far as you can, or they are happy to sit and snuggle while you read a book. They do well with exercise. They love attention and the more love you give them, the happier they are. Cotons walk in grace and beauty. In our opinion, they are a small treasure!
We acquired Kumba Daveney of Magiclands Ranch as a puppy in 2006. We wanted a pet for our family… a healthy dog that was good with children, lovable, able to run with us, and sweet. She was all of that and much more! When she was old enough, we thought we’d give breeding a litter of puppies a try. It was incredibly hard, but we were hooked! We bred Kumba with Ditto of Alika Cotons once a year for five years and kept several of their puppies. In 2011, we acquired Gideon Boon of Tustin Ranch Cotons to be our stud. He and our females produce colorful, affectionate, and well-balanced puppies. We always wait until our females are two years old to breed them for the first time. This makes the mother stable and ready to have puppies and it makes the puppies stronger and healthier. For more information about our females and our male, go to Meet the Parents.
We are a family raising Coton de Tulear puppies in our home in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We believe that happy dogs make content and healthy puppies. We hike with our dogs several times a day. We do a big hike at sunset and race the sun! We leave our home about 20 minutes before sundown and try to get to the top of the mountain before the sun starts to dip behind the mountains on the horizon! Our dogs always make it…we usually beat the sun, but not always.
Our puppies are welped and raised in our family room, with constant care, love, and affection from us. They also have lots of room to roam outside as they get older. When our puppies are about four weeks old, we start to grass train them. We make it a priority to take them outside every hour to potty. If the new owners are able to keep up this routine, our puppies have very few accidents. We generally have puppies with color and at least one or two tall coton puppies in each litter. The black and white puppies keep all or most of their color, and the tri-color puppies only fade a little as adult dogs. To see pictures of some of our puppies as adults, go to our Adult Photos page. You can also enjoy a photo gallery of the puppies when they are with us on our Photos page. Our puppies are the rare Malagasy Coton de Tulear.
Our dogs are will us at all times, whether we are playing outside, relaxing inside, hiking, doing school, where ever we are, our dogs are with us. At mealtimes they are under our feet! We bathe and groom our dogs every couple of weeks. It is not their favorite activity, however, it is good bonding. Grooming each dog takes about 20 minutes or so.
