About Linda Stevens

I am passionate about being the best breeder/owner I can be and this only comes from being mentored by people that know a whole lot more than I do.

  • I am a member of the CCTC and editor of the Coton Malgache for the CCTC - http://www.coton.ca/

  • I am a member and director of the CFC/FCC - http://www.caninecanada.ca/the-executive

  • I am a member of the Canadian Kennel Club.

  • I am a member of the CLRC.

  • I belong also to the Hub City Kennel & Obedience Club in Saskatoon and have taken a variety of classes and used our member time for socialization purposes.

I will be adopting out puppies at 12 weeks, this is for a few reasons:

  • I think that the 8-12 weeks is when they get the real lessons of life i.e.) getting along with other dogs, their Mom teaches them a lot in this time frame about learning to live with humans as well

  • I can assess their personalities and better match their potential forever homes

  • This is to ensure everything is completed and checked by a veterinarian and they have had their first vaccines.


All of my puppies will be crate trained

I feel that it is essential in the adoption process and is much easier for the transition to their forever homes. My Coton’s use their crates frequently on their own while we are home (doors are open). They can also use these crates for safe travel in a car.

 

P.S All potential adopters will be welcome to visit at any time to see the dogs and how they are with us, guests and children. ( I have grandchildren that have helped me socialize the dogs.)

Please call or visit for information about my price for a non-breeding companion dog.

I will provide some very necessary products for their adoption and to help them transition to their new forever home, along with health records, sample of their puppy food and adoption papers.


I will be asking for your opinion of me as a breeder about a month after receiving your puppy.


Also I would appreciate any updates on the puppy as they are initially my babies.


"I am a very small breeder just starting out and feel very strongly about having puppies that are healthy and are good ambassadors for the breed and not just having puppies."
