Dalmatian - Care and Grooming

Dalmatian Temperament

The Dalmatian is an alert, active, and confident dog with plenty of energy and excellent skills when it comes to problem solving and obedience. Courageous, friendly, and outgoing, the Dalmatian is a dog that tends to bond closely with his owners, making him a great family pet, although h can be very strong willed, which may make him better suited to owners with some degree of experience in handling and training dogs. These dignified dogs love a wide range of activities, and are sociable and dependable, but owners will need to provide plenty in terms of physical activity as well as mental stimulation, otherwise these dogs can get bored and this can lead to destructive behavior.

You should ensure that you socialize your Dalmatian early on to aid a more stable temperament, as some lines can be aggressive. However, the Dalmatian tends to get on okay with children when raised with them, and will usually get on well with other pets - again early socialization is recommended. When it comes to strangers the reaction can depend on the individual personality of the dog, and can range from warm and friendly to reserved and polite. The Dalmatian is a protective dog, and this helps to make him quite an effective watchdog. The Dalmatian can be difficult to handle and manage unless you have the confidence, assertiveness, and experience to ensure he is properly trained.

Most people know a Dalmatian right away because of his distinctive spotty coat. The Dalmatian has a muscular build, a keen and alert expression, and a handsome face. His coat is close fitting, dense, and short, and the coloring is white with black or liver spotting all over the coat. The weight of the Dalmatian is around 45-70 pounds, and the height is around 19-25 inches.

Dalmatian Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Dalmatian are not overly high, and regular brushing will help to get rid of dead hair and keep the coat looking good. The Dalmatian is a medium shedder, and tends to shed all year round, which means that he is not the ideal dog for those with allergies.

The life expectancy of the Dalmatian is around 11-14 years, and this breed has a range of health issues and disorders linked to it. This includes glaucoma, deafness, diabetes, gall stones, allergies, and seizures. The parents of the Dalmatian puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
