In Australia the Coton de Tulear is judged according to the FCI standard. Mr Ian Rasmussen prepared the Australian breed standard for the Australian National Kennel Club (ANKC).
However, there is more to judging this rare breed than outlined in the standard. To assist with judging myself and my Hungarian breeder, Ferenc Remenyi, of Carbonebianco Kennel, prepared a step-by-step guide on how today’s FCI and Coton Speciality Judges judge the Coton de Tulear. There is also a list of Coton de Tulear Speciality Judges if anyone is overseas and wanting to talk with a knowledge judge. Further, there is an historic to current day list of best practice European Coton de Tulear breeders, a guide to knowing what to expect from Coton de Tulears with these linages.
