Coton de Tulear Characteristics

Closely related to the Maltese and the Bichon Frise, the Coton de Tulear has a similar strikingly fluffy coat and loving personality. These are intelligent and friendly dogs who love nothing more than spending time with their people. The Coton is known as a low-maintenance breed and is ideal for first-time pet owners.

Fast Facts

  • Size
  • Trainability

Standing between 8-12 inches at the shoulder and weighing 8-13 pounds, the Coton de Tulear is a small dog with a big personality.  These dogs were bred for the sole purpose of being a perfect companion, and they certainly excel at that. Whether spending the whole day at your feet while you work or riding shotgun on errands, these dogs want to spend as much time with their human as possible.  

Those who know and love the Coton are quick to praise his intelligence, social skills, and surprisingly low-maintenance coat (which can be found in an assortment of colors including tri-color, black, or white). The Coton is quick to pick up on the schedules of his humans and adapt to their lifestyles. Conversely, these dogs are prone to separation anxiety and don't do well when left home for extended periods of time.  

Like a lot of other breeds that weigh less than ten pounds, Cotons can feel like they’re a lot bigger than they are – and may even try to take on a fight with a big dog. To help ensure your Coton doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. 

But not to worry, they’re generally extremely friendly, highly adaptable, playful, and loving towards everyone they meet.

How dog-friendly is Connecticut?

Connecticut has always been a good place for dogs, but the state has given even more effort recently to create a welcoming environment for pet-owners and dog-lovers. 


Pawsafe, a trusted source for dog safety ratings, ranked Connecticut 21st for pet friendliness. They also placed Connecticut fifth for the number of pet services available throughout the state and 11th best for pet-friendly accommodations. 


In recent years, Connecticut has increased the number of pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and other establishments. If you want to bring your pet with you when you travel, you won’t have trouble finding a place to stay overnight or to dine out.

Pet-friendly rentals in Connecticut

A similar study from Safewise gave Connecticut a less glowing review. They graded the state 39th for pet-friendliness. One of the main reasons they rated the state this low is the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 9%. That’s very low compared to other states.


Additionally, only 24% of Connecticut residents own a dog, which is far below the national average of 40%. In fact, it’s second to last for dog ownership in the United States. In contrast, the state’s total pet ownership percentage is well above the national average with 50% of Connecticut families owning a pet. Maybe Connecticut is more of a cat person? 

A few more pet-friendly statistics in Connecticut

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC) the most popular dogs in the state are large, active, family-friendly breeds: German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Labrador Retrievers. Hartford’s most popular dog breeds include Huskies, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles. Clearly Connecticut loves a companion for the whole family.


Connecticut has 1.4 dog parks per 100,000 residents. There are also many laws and statutes to create a pet-friendly environment. The state doesn't mandate that dogs remain on a leash at all times, as long as you don’t let your dog wander onto another person’s property.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Connecticut

Connecticut is one of the top states regarding animal welfare. The state saved 13,267 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 281 dogs and cats died in animal shelters across Connecticut. Out of 105 animal shelters, 88 have a no-kill policy. The overall save rate for the state is 92%, which is one of the highest in the country!
