Whippet Dog Breed Description




Dalmatian Dog Breed Description


Description

Dalmatians are born pure white. Black, brown, or yellow spots appear on the coat later. Black is by far the most common color for the spots. The Dalmatian is a mid size breed. They are a very muscular breed, yet they are also elegant. The breed is particularly known for their great endurance. Originally used as working dogs, the breed is quite versatile. They were used to herd sheep, hunt rodents, and as a bird dog. They are most commonly associated, though only in the United States, as being firehouse dogs. Today, their duties as firehouse dog are limited. Used mostly as a mascot now, the breed once acted as a guard dog to protect the firehouse.

The exact origin of the Dalmatian is unknown and much debated, but it is thought to be Dalmatia, Croatia. In 1956 the book One Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith was published causing a massively huge gain is popularity for the breed. The Dalmatian continues to remain one of the most well know and popular breeds of dog to this day.

Also Known As

Dalmatinac

Temperament

Dalmatians are an affectionate and loyal breed. Their intense loyalty to their owners can sometimes turn into jealously which may lead to aggressiveness. Households with young children, babies especially, are not suited for the Dalmatian Dalmatians require a great deal of companionship, without it they can become depressed. The breed tends to prefer human companionship to the companionship of other dogs. In fact, the Dalmatian is best suited in a single dog household. Often the breeds quirk of “smiling” is confused with snarling and can frighten some, in actuality, it is a sign of submission.

Health Problems

Dalmatians are prone to deafness, a problem that commonly occurs in white dogs. Dalmatians also lack uricase, which is an enzyme that breaks down uric acid. The buildup of uric acid can cause bladder stones and gout. To avoid this buildup Dalmatian owners must limit their dogs intake of purine.

Exercise

Dalmatians require a good deal of exercise. Young Dalmatians are very playful and energetic. If the breed does not get frequent exercise, in the form of long runs or walks, they tend to turn disobedient. Dalmatians enjoy games such as fetch and tug of war. A Dalmatian prefers to engage in playful activities with its owner rather than with other dogs or alone.

Special Grooming

The Dalmatian requires very little grooming. To reduce shedding it is recommended that you bathe your dalmatian once or twice a month. A finishing spray or dog cologne can help keep your Dalmatians coat healthy and add shine.
