We are  small a Hobby Breeder specializing in home-raised, RARE colored Coton de Tulears

Welcome to our
n de Tulear Home!

A Drama-Free Breeder that follows the Golden Rule!

At A Breed Apart, we  truly live by the Golden Rule--we treat you as we would want to be treated.   We are honest, ethical and professional breeders of the beautiful little dog from Madagascar; The Coton de Tulear!  

We have a love for  our little Coton de Tulears.  We have been involved in dog fancy most of our lives; from rescue, to showing and raising puppies.  We started years ago with the Miniature Schnauzer, and when we met our first Coton de Tulear puppy, we were hooked!  We chose the breed for it's hypoallergenic non-shedding coat, healthy gene pool and delightful temperament.   Did we mention the Coton has no doggy odor?  


Our Cotons  have been developed from the World's top lines and our dogs are our pets, first and foremost, raised in our homes.  Cotons are the perfect family companion, and they also are great candidates for therapy training!


Today we are still as passionate about our dogs as the first day we met them.  While there are many breeders now days raising the Coton, we feel as small hobby breeders, we can offer a personal touch to the rearing of our puppies, while maintaining the quality lines that produce excellent health and temperament.   We are not a large kennel facility or puppy mill with puppies available at all times, but small hobby breeders who offer  a couple well-planned litters a year for our discriminating clients who appreciate the home environment our dogs are raised in.   We don't believe in big breeding facilities and only raise well-socialized and beloved family companions.   The amount of joy our dogs bring to our lives is priceless, however, we don't over-price our puppies!  We want everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy the Coton de Tulear as much as we do!


We told ourselves years ago, we would continue to raise our dogs until it wasn't fun anymore.   For us, breeding has never been about making money or being  part of Breed Club politics --- it's about the love of our breed and sharing it with the world! 


.....and we are still having a blast!
