If you are wanting a Dalmatian, look for a great breeder and ask them all the questions you can. A really good breeder will be super honest and expect the same from you. It’s a really, really good idea to do your homework, and the person you get your companion from will really appreciate it. •
I hope these posts have provided a small insight into this beautiful breed, it’s definitely not everything but it’s mostly what people ask me! I am super honest because owning a Dalmatian is not for everyone. If you do decide to get a dal, I wish you all the best! They are wonderful, sensitive, loving breeds, that can be super cheeky, talk back at you and need a stern talking to 😅. They also excel at many things - agility, obedience, lure coursing, showing and many other competitive doggy sports.
please note - I am only speaking from experience and providing information from my perspective of what has been consistently asked in messages. I am in NO way an expert in dalmatians, and I would advise you to get advice off a reputable breeder if you want to know more. 😊
If you have any questions, post below ⬇️ or DM me. 🥰💕
DALLIE OWNERS, feel free to add your two cents worth on what it’s like to live with a dal below ⬇️ I feel like I haven’t covered even half of it 😂🐾

Toys that stimulate their brains are great as well, like puzzles, kong toys and you can make your own too. If they are bored, they get destructive, or as we dal owners like to call it - “dalstruction” •
Every single Dalmatian is unique and different. They can be STONE FORMERS. It’s imperative you give them a tonne of water a day, access to it at all times, and the opportunity to go outside as often as they want (I am a weirdo and monitor their water intake and outtake like you wouldn’t believe, don’t even get me started on how good their 💩is looking today. Told you). They can also be prone to ear infections, skin allergies and digestive issues.* This also means - DIET.
You are going to have to be extra careful and attentive as to what you feed your dogs. No foods high in purine (red meats, offal, etc, and you can google a list “high purine foods” of what to avoid feeding your Dalmatian) UNLESS you have a LUA dalmatian (low uric acid) and can feed them whatever you want (this is something you can ask your breeder). Depending on your dal, you really won’t know until they get older if they will be prone to the issues mentioned above*. It’s best to be attentive and know what to look for (and also be careful what you put ON your dal..)
Most Dalmatians SMILE - don’t be scared, they aren’t snarling at you, they are most likely expressing their excitement! Or they did something naughty and wanna be cute 🤦🏼♀️
Dalmatians can be super stubborn, obnoxious show offs 😂 but they are super loving. I have noticed Scout is a lot more independent then Syrus, who thrives on affection 24/7. They are both very stubborn, and Syrus’ needs are different to Scout, and vice versa. Syrus has LOTS of energy, whereas Scout is content to go for a big run and lie down. Syrus will come home and want to play. They are loyal companions, so please definitely think before you buy - these guys want to be with you for the rest of their life, and they will bond with you as a puppy. They are protective and will certainly let you know if somethings not right.

🚨 LONG POST ALERT, like 3 posts long 🚨
I get a lot of messages asking me what it’s like to have Dalmatians, tips and “need to know” for people interested in them. I decided to write something for those interested. it’s really best to think about if they will suit you, your family and lifestyle. They are beautiful dogs, but so much more then their appearance 🐼 I had wanted one since I was little because my dad used to show them. However it took me a good year to look into and decide they were for me - and I am still learning! 🐾
Dalmatians shed CONSTANTLY. I have Dalmatian glitter all over me, as we speak, and sometimes I get “splinters” of their hair in my feet or hands. It hurts if you get them in your eyes 😂🤦🏼♀️ you need a good vacuum cleaner and LOTS of patience. It takes me over a good hour just to clean the backseat of my car. If you wear black clothes, you’re gonna need to throw those out. (I’m joking, kind of - getting out of the house in my black work clothes involves a whole ninja routine 😂) I brush my pups as often as I can and do a really long brush once a week to help curb the shedding a bit. Hair will go everywhere. They don’t have the usual “dog smell”, they don’t smell bad either.
If you’re thinking it’s gonna be an outside dog (like, never let inside) please reconsider - I’ve never met a clingier/needy breed. They really want to be with their family, INSIDE, with you, as that makes them most happy and at peace. They want to be involved in all facets of your life (and I mean ALL, I have a constant companion when showering, peeing, you name it 😂). •
They can be very vocal - as in, speaking to you and sometimes crying to get your attention. They need love and affection, attention and companionship, just like any dog. But needier 😂 they will let you know if they want something. Believe me.
They are HIGH ENERGY breeds. They need to be walked everyday, however if you can’t manage that (I couldn’t for awhile due to chronic tendinitis), runs at the park (more often) and lots of training and one-on-one! (And that’s a given even if they are walked everyday). They THRIVE with training and attention from you! ⬅️ next post
