Show Calendar 2011

Conformation shows are usually held on weekends with four or five shows spaced out between Saturday and Sunday, although one-day and three-day shows are not uncommon.


This show calendar is color coded to display the various organizations in which Cotons can compete in the show ring. ARBA (American Rare Breed Association), IABCA (International All Breed Canine Association), UKC (United Kennel Club) and ICKC (International Canine Kennel Club, formerly NAKC and Rarities). These organizations publish yearly schedules. The schedules are subject to frequent changes so please contact the individual organization websites to confirm what is posted here. Check back often for updates.


UKC (United Kennel Club) conformation shows are held by individual parent clubs for UKC, but Cotons are invited to be shown in all of their conformation events that include Companion Class. This show calendar includes only UKC conformation events. Please check the UKC site for performance competitions.


Watch the calendar for "Fun Days" where volunteers from U.S. Coton Clubs host a Coton Fun Day for pet owners. All Cotons de Tuléar, pet and show, are invited to participate in these social events. There are also several Coton Parties each year. Please check the Coton Party web page for 2011 events.


For those interested in performance events like Agility, Obedience and Rally-Obedience, there are many shows in a number of locations in the U.S. throughout the year. Cotons de Tuléar are permitted in these shows but may require additional registrations. All organizations accept American Coton Club registrations.
