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.
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 Idaho?
We have to be honest that Idaho has some areas to improve in its dog-friendly status. But not to worry, the state does have some great highlights! It’s a stellar travel destination for people who travel with their pets and has some very dog-friendly cities.
Overall, the two leading studies rank Idaho as 36th and 47th for pet-friendliness. Since there are only 50 states, this isn’t the best. The studies compare states by their adherence to important factors like pet-friendly accommodations, access to pet services, animal cruelty laws, and even pet-friendly outdoor space.
Pawsafe, an animal welfare site, ranks Idaho 47th. Idaho lags behind other states mainly because of its lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Safewise, a safety review site, ranked Idaho a little bit higher as the 36th most pet-friendly state in the country. Combining these two studies together puts Idaho towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
