Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil, jealousy, or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring-it was peace.

Our Cotons


Playful and Devoted Companions

Cotons are playful, loving and extremely devoted to their owners. This breed is a joy to own and brings countless hours of fun and happiness. Cotons are often referred to as anti stress dogs and are also considered a hypo-allergenic breed.

California Dreamin’ Cotons is very active in promoting the Coton De Tulear. Please check our Calendar section to see where we are and what we're up to. We welcome all visitors to come see us at dog shows and other events such as the American Pet Expo, held each Spring at the Orange County Fairgrounds. Meet us and meet our beautiful Cotons. We take care to preserve and maintain the major characteristics of the Coton De Tulear. Our principle priorities are based on the following:

  • Health-The Coton de Tulear is a healthy breed. Care is taken to ensure breeding only those Cotons that have passed their health exams.
  • Temperament-The Coton adapts very well to anything life throws at it. It has a stable personality. It's very sociable with humans and very family oriented. Cotons mix well with other animals.
  • Appearance-Bred as a companion dog, Coton's are a small, long hair dog with a white, cottony coat, round, dark eyes, and an intelligent, alert expression. Our dogs are bred to the FCI Standard.To read the standard please go to:
