ACC Code of Ethics Breeder Membership


The ACC offers the finest Coton de Tulear Code of Ethics Breeders Program in North America. New breeders are carefully screened for their breeding philosophies, ethical views, commitment to preserving the Coton de Tulear as a rare breed by not supporting the AKC, and goals for their breeding program.

All ACC Breeders must follow a Code of Ethics, health test all breeding stock according to the ACC Health Testing Program, offer a spay/neuter sales contract, seek only the best puppy placements, stay networked with other ACC Coton breeders, register all puppies produced with the ACC and offer an official ACC pedigree to all owners.
