The Coton de Tulear is a bright and charming dog breed that has a close attachment to its humans. Named for the city of Tulear in Madagascar, these small white dogs love to clown around, and they make exceptional companions. Cotons have a natural ability to walk on their hind legs, and they have a unique vocalization style that often mimics “talking.”

Given that these dogs are unique and bond closely with their humans, it’s only natural to want to name your Coton a unique name to go with its remarkable personality. Sometimes a dog’s personality will dictate the perfect name, but if you’re unsure what to name your Coton, we can help!
