Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Dalmatian is a breed
whose heritage is hotly disputed by researchers.
There is no evidence that the breed originated
in Dalmatia. The Dalmatian is most certainly
a dog of very ancient lineage that has come
through the centuries virtually unchanged.

The Dalmatian is a symmetrical,
muscular, medium-sized dog with superior endurance.
A picture of elegance, the Dalmatian has lean,
The feet are round with well-arched
toes and the nails are either white or the same
color as the spots. The nose can be black, brown
(liver), or blue or a dark gray. The eyes are dark
brown, amber, or blue, with an intelligent expression.
The ears are soft, narrowing toward the point, carried
with a slight upward curve.
It has a short, hard, dense coat
of pure white with black or liver colored spots
randomly splashed over it. The spots can be black,
brown (liver), lemon, dark blue, tri colored, brindled,
solid white or sable.
Puppies are born completely white and the spots

Dalmatians have a vast about of
stamina and energy. They are playful, happy-go-lucky,
extremely sensitive and loyal. The Dalmatian needs
human companionship. For this reason they do not
make good yard dogs. They have excellent memory.
The Dalmatian enjoys playing with
children, but may be too rambunctious for toddlers.
They get along well with other pets, but some may
be aggressive with strange dogs; males often dislike
other males. Somewhat high-strung, and can be timid
without enough socialization. Quite intelligent,
but can be willful.
A Dalmatian is not an ideal dog
for apartment dwellers unless it can be taken out
for a brisk walk or run several times a day. They
are very active indoors and will do best with at
least an average-sized yard. This breed should not
be kept outside in the cold.
They need to be taken on daily,
long, brisk walks, runs or jogs. Lack of adequate
exercise can cause a wide array of behavioral problems.
The Dalmatian generally does well
with firm, consistent training. The Dalmatian is
trainable to a high degree of obedience. They can
be trained for defense and are good watchdogs. Generally,
their attention spans are limited. More so in the
hands of an inexperienced owner who does not create
the correct rank order. Combinations of rewards
(treats, play and praise, in that order) are the
best bets and will go a long way in getting their
attention and for training purposes. Gentle consistent
corrections are often sufficient to correct unacceptable
Common complaints heard are that
while the owner has been able to get the Dalmatian
to respond while on leash or while in familiar areas,
it does not obey equally well off the leash or in
unfamiliar areas. This problem is not breed specific,
however, again a trainer inexperience issue.
sheds profusely twice a year. It is a hardy, easy
to keep breed, though frequent brushing is needed
to cope with constant shedding. They do not have
a doggy odor and are said to be clean and even avoid
puddles. It should be bathed only when necessary.
In their late teens, both males
and females may suffer bone spurs and arthritic
conditions. Deafness affects 10-12% of Dalmatian
puppies. Every Dalmatian puppy should be BAER-tested
for deafness. Urinary stones and skin allergies
(especially to synthetic fibers in carpets and upholstery)
are also sometimes inherited. Uric acid levels in
Dalmatians are higher than in any other breed, sometimes
causing urinary blockage. Some Dalmatians suffer
