I have been involved in the sport of purebred dogs for over
40 years. I started showing and breeding dogs and horses
while still in school, also showing cattle, hogs and sheep. In
1984, I turned to the lesser known, "rare" breeds as it was
difficult to find a terrific dog to show that was sound in mind
and body. I refuse to breed dogs that have disqualifying
faults, known hereditable disease, or poor temperaments.
We thoroughly evaluate all potential breeding stock and
resulting puppies for any hidden genetic "defects". We
obtained our first Coton 20 years ago, and as they say - the
rest was history!
It is of the utmost importance to us that our puppies are
placed in a caring, loving environment. All puppies are
raised in our home (in our bedroom and then move into the
kitchen) with love and also with emphasis placed on proper
socialization. and exposure to the sights and sounds of
normal household life. We are available to our new
"owners" for any questions they may have regarding the
puppy. Our commitment to the Coton is that of the lifetime of
the dog. We believe that if the new owner is "Happy" then
our "fur kids" will be happy as well.
We show our dogs in conformation shows with IABKC,
UKC, and ARBA. We are members of the United States of
America Coton de Tulear Club - and I am past President of
the USACTC, Inc. as well as currently serving the club on
the board . in addition to this, I started the first internet email
group devoted solely to the Coton de Tulear, the Coton
Connection as well as having established the Coton Health
Link - the first step in creating a open health registry for the
Coton de Tulear. I have given judging seminars on the
Coton de Tulear and have available for sale on CD-Rom,
"The Coton de Tulear Breed Standard Explained".
Our Coton de Tulear all have wonderful, affectionate
personalities and all breeding stock is evaluated by our
veterinarians for genetic defects. We guarantee all pups
against heritable temperament defects and genetic
disease. Our goal is to produce sound, healthy, happy
puppies that are welcome additions to the proper homes. In
addition to being "owned" by a bunch of Cotons, I am
involved with horses and gardening. Randy is in the Fire
Service and has served in this field all of his life.
