The Dalmatian is originally from Croatia. The name comes from "Dalmatia", the region of probable origin. The Dalmatian is known to have existed as early as the 1500s, possibly earlier, although the name only dates back to the 1800s. The Dalmatian was used as a guard dog and then became a popular retriever. Dalmatians are frequently associated with fire stations, where they are often chosen as pets for their loyalty and affection. The breed gained popularity after the release of the Disney animated film "101 Dalmatians".
The Dalmatian is of average height with a shoulder height of 19 to 24 inches and weighs between 45 and 70 pounds. The male Dalmatian is slightly larger than the female. The Dalmatian is muscular and lean. He has round feet, small toes, and black or white fingernails. The ears are thin and high.
You probably know that the Dalmatian is white with black (or liver-colored) spots, but yellow, orange, or blue spots, while rare, do exist! The Dalmatian's spotted coat is unique among purebreds. The coat of the Dalmatian should be short. Ideally, the spots should not overlap and should be 2 to 3 cm (0,75 to 1,75 in) in diameter. The Dalmatian puppy is born completely white and the spots slowly become visible during the first few weeks, although new ones develop throughout the dog's life. Dalmatians lose their hair considerably all year round.
The Dalmatian is sociable, enduring, friendly and affectionate. He is a strong, hard worker with a lot of stamina. The Dalmatian is energetic and playful, and a very fast runner.
The Dalmatian is a good playmate for children, although it can be a bit too rowdy for small children. Dalmatians get along well with other dogs or pets, although they should be socialized as a puppy if possible. The Dalmatian naturally loves humans and horses. The Dalmatian can be attentive to strangers.
Loose hair should be removed daily by grooming it with a rubber glove when the Dalmatian sheds. Like some other breeds, the Dalmatian is predisposed to deafness; it should be tested between five and six weeks. Dalmatians crave companionship and shouldn't be left alone in a basement or backyard. The Dalmatian lives 11 to 13 years, although lifespans of up to 16 years are not uncommon. Dalmatians have large litters of up to 15.
The Dalmatian needs consistent training. Dalmatians respond positively to praise when they have done something right. They are very sensitive and have long memories - they will remember abuse and shouldn't be trained the hard way. Difficult methods are unlikely to be successful, and consistent and gentle corrections are recommended. The Dalmatian has a strong sense of rank and is very willful, so an experienced trainer is recommended.
Dalmatians will adjust to your family's activity level, although they are energetic and happier when given the chance to run free <outdoors.
