Join Our Club

The United States of America Coton de Tulear Club welcomes interested Coton owners to learn more about the club. We enjoy the company of other Coton lovers, breeders and enthusiasts, and share relevant information about new developments concerning the Coton. The USACTC currently holds one National Specialty plus Supported Entries and Specialties throughout the year. At these shows prizes and titles are awarded to the winning Coton in conformation. We are exploring Specialties that offers Agility and Rally so we can encourage our non-conformation Cotons to participate.  Attending these shows is fun and informative and allows Coton fanciers to see and show off our beautiful breed!  Our club is officially licensed by the American Kennel Club. The USACTC encourages Coton breeders and owners to exhibit their Cotons in events approved by the American Kennel Club. As Parent Club we are committed to the highest spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship!
