Join Our Club

The United States of America Coton de Tulear Club welcomes interested Coton owners to learn more about the club. Our membership enjoys the company of other Coton lovers, breeders and enthusiasts, and shares relevant information regarding the Coton breed. The USACTC currently holds one National Specialty, plus Supported Entries, throughout the year. At these shows prizes and titles are awarded to the winning Cotons in conformation. We are exploring Specialties that offer Agility and Rally so we can encourage our non-conformation Cotons to participate.  Attending these shows is fun and informative! It is an opportunity for 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 the National Parent Breed Club, the organization is committed to the highest spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship.
