You can follow the arrival and growth of the puppies from each litter by clicking on the name of the Dam under the "Puppies" link. We do weekly video and picture updates on each litter. The pictures and videos from previous litters stay posted until the next litter arrives. When we have puppies we mark the puppies as "Available" until someone on our waiting list claims that puppy. Then we mark the puppy as "Reserved". When the puppy leaves our home we mark him "Sold".
According to the French tradition, each year is assigned a letter of the alphabet. Every coton born in that year is given a name that begins with that letter. In the spirit of that tradition, we will name each coton puppy born in 2022 with a name beginning with the letter "N". New owners are welcome to change the name if desired.
Our grandson, Hunter, loving Our granddaughters, Chloe and Paisley
on some puppies. love the dogs! Their favorite thing is to
hold and play with the puppies.
We offer a pet nanny courier service via air for $250 plus the cost of the flight.
From time to time I can book an airline employee to deliver the puppy for a fee of $550-700,
however, this is becoming more and more difficult to achieve.
You're always welcome to fly or drive in to pick up your puppy.
We are happy to meet you at the airport or welcome you to our home.
Choosing a Puppy
Choose me! Choose me!
People ask us all the time, "What is the difference between a male and a female puppy?" You may have felt that choosing a breed was the biggest decision you had to make before getting a dog. But now that you have decided on a Coton, you are faced with a more basic decision: do you want a male dog, or a female? There is an old saying that has circulated for a long time among dog aficionados:
“If you want a good dog, get a male. If you want a great dog, get a female and cross your fingers.”
One thing that must be taken into account when evaluating a saying like this or the differences that may or may not exist between male and female dogs, is the role played by cultural stereotypes. If men or women have certain concepts about each other, they may have a tendency to project them onto animals in a way that is not entirely appropriate. One further caveat needs to be given, and that is that when we speak of the differences that may really exist between male and female dogs, it must be understood that these are generalities. While a male or female dog may be more likely to possess certain characteristics or behavioral traits, this does not mean these generalities apply in every case. With all of that out of the way, let’s look at some differences that appear to exist, generally speaking, between male and female dogs.
Male dogs tend to be more affectionate, demanding of attention, frisk, and focused on human beings than female dogs, who generally are more independent and inconsistent in their focus on their human companions. Females can be every bit as loving but after awhile they may prefer to go off on their own, whereas males are likely to accept as much pampering and attention as their human companions are willing to give them. For people who like cats, female dogs might make the better choice, since their personality traits can almost be described as cat-like, especially in comparison to male dogs.
It is widely believed that female dogs are easier to train because they are less easily distracted. Male dogs have a tendency to remain like goofy, playful kids their whole lives, and it can be hard to get them to focus on one thing for long. It must be noted, however, that in the competitive world of dog shows and related events, when it comes time to hand out prizes and titles it is male dogs that have traditionally dominated. It is possible that male dogs may be more eager to please human beings and perhaps at the highest levels this helps them overcome the tendency to be more easily distracted.
There is one thing that all dog breeders and trainers agree on, and that is that the personality differences between individual dogs are definitely greater than that which may exist between the sexes. With all that said, in the end the choice should be based on the sense of connection you feel with an individual dog more than anything else.
Color often seems to come into play when new owners are choosing a puppy. Bear in mind that the Coton is a white dog. Even strong color on puppies usually fades to very light color, if it stays at all. Choose a puppy based on personality, not color.
Here's a fun video to demonstrate just how smart and funny these puppies are. We call it Coton Feeding Frenzy!
Want one of our little angels for your own?
Here is how it works... You need to tell us a bit about yourself and the home you can offer to one of our puppies.
Are you an experienced dog owner or will this be your first puppy? You can email this information to us but we prefer a chance to get to know you a bit by chatting with you over the phone. If you live nearby, a visit to our home to meet us and our Cotons is always preferred.
We ship throughout the United States. To reserve a place on our waiting list, we require a signed copy of our contract and a deposit of $500. Contact us for pricing and a personalized copy of our contract to submit with your deposit. We want each of our buyers to experience the fun of watching their puppy grow and develop while they are waiting to join their new forever home. Therefore, we post a weekly video and 4-picture collage for your viewing enjoyment. We are always here to answer your questions and guide you in choosing the perfect puppy for your family. We won't desert you once your puppy leaves our home. We are happy to continue to offer support at any time. We love getting updates and pictures from our puppy buyers. Our committment to you is for the life of your puppy!

Someone asked me today if I ever videotaped the birth of our puppies. I told her I had done that once or twice but didn't put it in a permanent spot on my website. Since I was helping to birth Jazz's puppies at the time of this conversation, I decided to set up the camera and tape the event. In this video you will see a couple of puppies born. Please note that it is a slightly bloody process,yet beautiful at the same time.
