Coton de Tulear Breeder's Recommendations
Feeding Your Coton de Tulear Puppy
The best dog food for your Coton de Tulear
Like all dogs, Cotons have specific nutritional needs at different stages of their lives. Providing your Coton with the right kind and amount of food can help them maintain their health and energy levels, prevent diseases, and extend their lifespan. On this page, we will discuss the nutritional needs of Coton de Tulear puppies, adult Cotons, and senior aged Cotons.
How To Order Your Coton Puppies Food
We do not believe in skimping when it comes to our dogs’ health. We buy only the highest quality dog food and supplements. We have tried several brands over the years. In July 2016 we were introduced to a relative newcomer to the dog food industry - a company called pawTree. After hearing their Mission and Vision Statements, we decided to hop on a plane and visit the company during their annual convention - Yes, that's how serious we are about what we feed our dogs. After meeting the founder of pawTree and talking with the product developer, we made the decision to switch our dogs to pawTree. We are convinced that their products are superior to anything else on the market. It was something that the Product Developer said to me. She said, "It's all about the sourcing of the ingredients". That's something you cannot tell from reading the ingredients list on a bag. pawTree uses only non-GMO food ingredients and their meats are raised without hormones and antibiotics. That's how we eat and I wanted the same for my Coton babies.
We are feeding our puppies the Grain Free Chicken and Sweet Potato recipe. We are asking all our puppy buyers to keep their new puppy on pawTree. If your prefer a formula with grains, we recommend pawTree's Chicken & Oatmeal formula. pawTree offers a variety of formulas with various protein sources. Your Coton might enjoy a change of pace now and then so after the first year, feel free to try on of the other formulas that pawTree offers. We rotate our adults between the various grain free recipes. It's thought that rotating can help to prevent food allerrgies.
As your Coton becomes an adult dog, s/he might have different dietary needs. pawTree offers formulas for older dogs and overweight dogs. Please feel free to reach out to us with any question you might have concerning your Coton's diet. We have studied canine nutrition and are a more reliable source of information than a vet since they do not study canine nutrition.
We are confident that you will find that the benefits that pawTree affords will convince you to stay with pawTree for the life of your dog. pawTree is only available through an affilate of the company. Each of the breeders in our program have their own affiliate link. To order pawTree food for your new puppy, visit your breeder's pawTree website by clicking their link above. Your order will be drop shipped right to your door.
New customers receive 10% off their first order up to $100 and 20% off order of $100+. When checking out be sure you use the discount code INTRO4U10 or INTRO4U20.
When you enter the site, you will click on "Sign In" in the upper right corner. That will take you to a page where you will register with pawTree. Be sure you write down the password you create for your account. You will need it to make future changes to your order. Next you will create a pet profile for your puppy.
When you create a Pet Profile, you will have the opportunity to name your puppy's food and upload a picture of your puppy. These will appear on your dog food bag. So Cute! We named our food "Cotons' Cuisine". The next screen will recommend the perfect food for your pet's needs. You can skip over that page. We have created a couple of recommendation for you. When you click the My Recommendations link you will see the Coton Puppy Starter Kit and Ultimate Starter Kit for Cotons. You can choose from within those recommendations for ease of ordering. Our dogs get a squirt of Wild Alaskan Salmon and Pollack Oil every day and half a capsule of Gastro Pro Plus sprinkled over their food. It has SO many health benefits. They also go crazy for the treats.
pawTree offers free shipping on your dog food if you purchase 3 qualifying items such as the pawPairings, pawTreats, Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil or even toys! We always add three additional items each month so that we get free shipping. For each product you have the opportunity to choose to place that item on EZShip and they will recommend the interval between shipping based on your dog's size. For your first order the interval needed is about 65 days. The site typically recommends 97 days when you create your Pet Profile, because your puppy is so small but I think it is better to have your food arrive before you are close to running out. I have had people tell me that a bag of food last them 3 months! You can adjust your EZShip to meet your specific needs. You can also choose "one time purchase" for items that you do not want to receive on every order - such as a toy. Although, if that toy gives you three qualifying items, giving you free shipping, you will want to put it on EZShip and replace it with a different item before your next shipment processes. Work the system to your advantage!
pawTree has a very customer friendly EZShip program. They will email you 7 days before you next order is due to process, giving you plenty of time to go into your EZShip manager and make changes. Plus they give you pawPoints that you can use to purchase any item on the website. (After your 3rd EZShip, they double your pawPoints as a way of saying "thank you".) As your puppy grows and begins to eat more, you can login anytime to change your order and/or your EZ ship date. Be sure to give pawTree a week to process and ship your food. If you find that your order is processing too soon, be sure you go in and just change the date rather than deleting your EZ ship. When you delete your EZShip you lose all your paw points.
How to change an EZShip
Once you login you will see your name in the upper right corner with a little down arrow next to it. Click that arrow and a menu will appear. Click on EZShip. On the next page you will click the Edit button and your EZShip will appear. From there you can remove items by clicking on the trash can or add items by scrolling down to Quick Add, choose the items you wish to add and clicking Add Items". Should you see that you are running low on food before your process date, simply login to your EZ Ship and click "Process Now". If you ever wish to go off EZShip, you click the three dots in the upper right corner then choose "Delete EZShip" button and it's done! No phone call to make. Just remember that when you delete an EZ Ship you will lose your pawPoints so spend those points first or move your EZ Ship date up rather than deleting it.
