DALMATIAN  BEHAVIOR TRAITS

The popularity of Dalmatians exploded with Disneys 101 Dalmatians. Families flocked to the breed, which unfortunately led to a lot of indiscriminate breeding practices. This led to unstable bloodlines.

 

It is important to know a Dalmatian's genetic history before adopting one. While well-bred Dalmatians are a dream to live with, poorly bred dogs can be rife with behavioral and temperament problems including hyperactivity, biting, stubbornness and even aggression.

Even a well bred Dalmatian has energy to spare. If not properly exercised and mentally stimulated each day, this breed can become destructive. Additionally, because they love people so much, separation anxiety can develop, which also leads to destructive behavior. A commitment to proper exercise is key to raising a happy, healthy Dalmatian.

DALMATIAN PERSONALITY

The Dalmatian is the only dog bred to be with horses. They were originally used to guard the carriages and horses of the upper class in the 1800's. The Dalmatian safetly trotted beside the horse and carriage and ushered them through the streets. While the master was busy, it was the Dalmatian's job to ensure the stock and carriage remained safe and  untouched. Later, they became military sentries and circus performers. Most famously, they were the mascots of fire companies due to the fact that fire engines were originally horse drawn. They are a versatile dog, capable of watching over a house or livestock, performing in advanced obedience competitions or simply acting as a loyal family companion. They love to be with people and will want to be included in all family activities, whether indoor or outdoor. They travel well and love to go for rides in the car. Dalmatians are friendly with people and great with children, although toddlers can often be knocked down by an eager dog. They are a joy to live with
