Those who own a Coton de Tulear find its bubbly and lovable demeanor as a good stress reliever at the end of a long day. Because the temperament of these dogs is playful and affectionate, they are often considered good "de-stressors." Generally, the Coton de Tulear has a naturally sunny disposition, which makes it a true joy to be around. To have the distinguished honor of owning a Coton de Tulear means that cheering up after a bad day is literally an arm's reach away.
Lovable & Affectionate
Perhaps it's because they spent centuries in the arms of royalty that the Coton de Tulear is one of the cuddliest companions you'll ever have the pleasure of owning. Coming home after a hellish day at work will never be more soothing than being greeted at the door by the lovable and welcoming bark of your Coton. What's great about the Coton is that it is as loyal as it is affectionate.
The Coton de Tulear really does believe that it is a member of the family and it acts accordingly, taking the role as the honorary "cheer upper" for the entire family. Known for its ability to smile and talk, the Coton de Tulear can be quite comforting for its owner. Spending time with your Coton, especially when you need a shoulder, or paw, to cry on will make your bond stronger, not to mention make you feel better.
Daily exercise has the same effect on humans as it does on dogs. Participating in daily exercise with your Coton will give you time at the end of the day to clear your head, and reduce your stress. Since your Coton requires at least 30 minutes of exercise each day, this gives you the perfect excuse to get out there and take a nice long walk with your Coton. In addition to the exercise, the time spent with your Coton each day will be pure relaxation. If you really want to have 30 minutes of peace everyday, leave your cell phone at home or at least turn it off during your walk.
The natural playfulness of the Coton makes it perfect for de-stressing. Sitting down and gently stroking your Coton's belly can relieve your stress and send your worries miles and miles away. On top of all the other great things about your Coton de Tulear, they make great listeners! If ever you need to bounce ideas off someone, your Coton is a great choice because it is so tuned into your emotions that it's as if it knows that you just need someone to listen. A lovable and cuddly dog that also relieves stress: what's not to love about it?
