No matter what praise we lavish here on Thompson Cotons and the pups they raise, it won’t be enough. From day one, the puppies are members of a family, and that gives them a head start that is hard to describe. They bond easily, listen well, are gentle and caring, love people (especially children) and by the time they enter their new homes they are essentially housebroken and trained in basic commands. There was no difficult period of transition when our puppy came to us: within hours we found it hard to believe he hadn’t always been a part of the family. We’ve had him for nearly a month, and we can’t imagine life without him. Simply put, we will never buy any other breed from any other breeder.
