About This Breed:
The Dalmatian originates in Croatia. They are believed to be around since the 1500’s, maybe even earlier. The name “Dalmatian” has been around since the 1800’s. They were originally used as a guard dog, then became a popular retriever. They are frequently associated with the fire houses, where they are often chosen as pets for their loyalty and affection. The character of the Dalmatian is very sociable, friendly and affectionate. They are a hard working dog with plenty of stamina and endurance. They are energetic and playful not to mention fast runners. They will adapt themselves to the activity level of your family, keep in mind that they are energetic and will be the happiest if they have a fenced in yard where they can run freely. They range in size between 45-70 lbs. they are muscular and lean. The main color for a Dalmatian is black and white but other colors can be found like liver or blue spots. Their coat is very short and will shed year round. A newborn pup is born completely white with spots appearing after a couple of weeks. They make a great playmate for the children although they may be a little rambunctious for smaller children. They get along well with other pets, it is however very important to socialize these guys at a young age to children and other pets. They are instinctively very fond of their family. A Dalmatian craves the companionship of their family and it is not recommended that they be habitually left alone in a basement or backyard. They can be cautious around strangers thus making them a good alarm system. Young pups can be washed in the sink but an older dog will need the bathtub or you could take them to a self-wash. To remove dead hairs it is recommended to use a rubber brush daily on them. Training for them will need to be very consistent. They will respond best to positive praise when they have done something well. They are a very sensitive breed with long memories, they will remember mistreatment or harshness and should not be trained roughly. A harsh approach WILL NOT WORK, rather a gentle corrections are recommended. They have a strong sense of rank and are strong willed. That being said, we are highly encouraging you to seek the help of a certified trainer to help with training before things get out of hand. Despite the bull headedness they are an amazing dog that the whole family will enjoy.
