Our family consists of myself, my wonderful husband, Ross, two grown up boys who live on their own, a Spinone Italiano who thinks she's a Coton and a little pack of wonderful Cotons. We live on an acreage just south of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
We are small family Coton de Tulear breeders with a focus on health, temperament and socialization. Our dogs are full members of our family.
Our goal is to raise happy, healthy pups, in order to provide our customers with wonderful companions, and help preserve this wonderful breed.
Our dogs are raised with the utmost of tender, loving care. We do health testing on our breeding dogs prior to breeding to ensure our dogs are the very best for breeding.
I am a Code of Ethics Breeder with the Canadian Coton de Tulear Club. I am also a member of the North American Coton Association (NACA). I belong to the CFC (Canine Federation of Canada) and CKC (Canadian Kennel Club).
I belong to a small group of breeders across North America who are committed to actively promoting quality and integrity in our breeding programs in order to protect the heritage, health and temperament of the breed. Click here to learn more.
You can also find us on Facebook, Chapala Bay Cotons Facebook Page. I do update my website more than my FB page.
We are firm believers in training classes. My interest has grown so much that I decided to take a dog training course at the Animal Behavior College and I am now an ABC certified dog trainer. Training gives an extra special way to increase communication and strengthen the bond with your dog.
I also believe in taking seminars, I attend all the seminars I can in order to learn as much as possible.
When our circumstances changed, and we had the time to have a dog, I researched many different breeds. My husband had never had the joy of having a pet before, so I wanted to make sure the transition was smooth. We were looking for a breed of dog that was small, sturdy, hypo-allergenic, not nervous, who required some, but not an excessive amount of exercise. We also wanted a lively, intelligent dog, but not a hyperactive dog.
That is when I came across the wonderful Coton de Tulear. They were everything we had hoped for and more. They are packed with personality. They are ever enthusiastic, and game for anything. They are happy and exuberant, and an absolute joy to have around. We laugh every day. The Coton is noted for their cheerfulness. They have been dubbed the "anti-depression"dog of France. Cotons are known for becoming very attached to their humans and are very adaptable. This began my love affair with the Coton de Tulear.
The Cotons have so enriched our lives and brought us so much joy, they became my passion! I decided to go into breeding. After much research, I embarked on this wonderful journey. I wanted to make sure that my going into breeding would be for the good of the breed. This has been an exciting journey. Cotons are my total passion. I sincerely hope you will experience the joy of adding a little Coton or two to your life. Just be warned, Cotons are extremely addictive!
