Our goal is to help preserve this incredible breed and produce some happy, healthy, well balanced Malagasy Coton de Tulear puppies to bless other families as much as we have been. We are the first Canadian Code of Ethics Breeder with the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club (MCPC), and are located just outside of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
I have always loved dogs and have had at least one in my life since I was a toddler. I discovered the Coton de Tulear from one of my many dog breed books when I was a child and fell instantly in love. Throughout the years, whenever we were looking to add a new fur baby to our family, I went back to them, but with our young children, and busy work schedules it just wasn’t the right environment for one.
In 2014 my lifelong dream came true when we welcomed our first Malagasy Coton de Tulear to our family. We called her Maple as a nod to our wonderful country, and her beautiful maple syrup coloring. She was a rare tall Coton and an amazing representative of the breed. Even though she was my little shadow, every day she would go and check in on the rest of the family. They are sometimes called anti-depressant dogs. She lived up to that reputation by going into my Dad’s room every day, jumping into his lap, putting her paws on his chest and looking at him. This would always make him smile, talk and pet her. Once they had a visit, she would be off again to check on everyone else.
I love helping people and our Cotons have brought many blessings to our lives. I hope to bring the same joy to others by providing them with the healthiest, most well balanced forever friend that I can. When you add a WishView Coton to your home you become part of our extended family. We are always available to help with any issues which may arise, and will of course always welcome them back if for any reason you are unable to care for them.
My puppies are registered with the MCPC breed club and we follow their breed standards and code of ethics in our program. Please check out the Links page to learn more about them as well as the differences between the Malagasy and Euro Coton standards.
In order to give our pups the best start in life, our puppies are born and raised in our home, not a kennel and we use the Puppy Culture program. We believe that this gives our puppies a profound advantage over those who aren’t given the early neurological stimulation, socialization and resiliency exercises which enable them to grow into amazing well balanced adults. Please go to my Our Program and Useful Links pages to learn more.
I have also implemented the Badass Breeder program who’s mandate is to create a community of empowered breeders who raise dogs which heal hearts and change lives; how can you not love that?! I learned about Early Scent Introduction through them and have implemented this along with the ENS which I have found makes our puppies even more well rounded and better companions for their Forever Families.
