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 Louisiana?
Louisiana is a wonderful state for dogs and their humans to live and travel! The state ranks consistently higher than its neighbor, Mississippi, as well.
A few regular studies help us rank the 50 states by pet-friendliness. Two reputable studies rank all 50 states according to factors like animal cruelty laws, pet services, pet-friendly living, dog parks, hiking trails, and more.
The first study comes from the animal advocacy group Pawsafe. They rank Louisiana as the 24th most pet-friendly state. The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
The second study comes from the safety review site Safewise. THey ranked Louisiana a little bit higher, as the 18th most pet-friendly state in the country.
Overall, these two rankings set Louisiana in a solid, healthy spot for pet-friendliness.
Are cities in Louisiana pet-friendly?
We also keep an eye on a study by Wallethub that reviews the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness.
New Orleans is Louisiana’s biggest city with a population of nearly 400,000. Wallethub ranked New Orleans in the 10th spot overall out of 100! The city ranked 34th in pet budget and 10th in pet health and wellness, but slightly lower at 44th in outdoor pet-friendliness – mostly due to the heat and humidity.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study ranked New Orleans 58th for dog parks compared to the 100 other largest cities. New Orleans has 0.8 dog parks per 100,000 people.
The top dog-friendly attractions in this very popular tourist destination are Ghost City Tours and Metairie Cemetery.
