Welcome to White Birch Cotons, a breeder in CT (Connecticut). We are a small home-based kennel lovingly and ethically raising Coton de Tulear puppies, If you are looking for a Coton de Tulear puppy in the Northeast, we are a short distance to both Boston and New York (NY). Our Cotons are first and foremost our pets, but also chosen carefully for their pedigrees. Our dogs live with us and our puppies are raised inside our home, are crate and pee-pad trained, health cleared, and very well socialized. We offer a one-year guarantee, and are always available to answer questions for the life of your dog!
Both my husband and I have backgrounds in human and animal health. He has is PhD in Animal Science and I hold degrees in Allied Health (concentration in genetics) and a BSN and MSN. I currently practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Our background in the sciences has helped shape our breeding philosophy to focus on prevention. Our dogs are extensively health tested. Please visit our page on health testing to read more.
We utilize the Puppy Culture Method of Socialization.
Coton de Tulears are often referred to as the “anti-depressant” dog, are hypoallergenic and are frequently chosen as Therapy dogs because of their fun lovingpersonalities. Because Coton de Tulears have hair instead of fur they shed minimally.
Are dogs are registered with the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club (MCPC). This is the only Club that requires Embark Genetic testing for both breed identification and genetic health testing. I am proud to be the Health and Education Chair for the MCPC
