  1. Adorable! As a first pup, I’d strongly recommend socializing little spots SUPER well with other humans and dogs outside the inner circle. Dalmatians are amazing dogs but can get real shady and cause some damage if they’re not comfortable.

    Source: I’m a veterinarian; breedism is real.

  2. My sister had a few Dalmatians. They are wonderful dogs but they have their own way of doing things. We used to joke around and call them the “damnations”. Fiercely loyal, strong, beautiful, and always getting into trouble.

  3. Grew up with a Dalmatian make sure to not let them get possessive over things mine got worse with age about claiming things as hers and not letting people near her when she had her stuff bones etc but fantastic dog was always great with us as babies me and my three brothers two sets of twins 2 years apart Dalmatian in between us we bugged her a lot as babies

  4. Hopefully you got a nice, not aggressive one! When “101 Dalmatians” came out, they bred the dogs like crazy without selecting for affection, and now a ton of them are aggressive, don’t like more than one person, and bite children. 🙁

  5. You picked one of the cutest but also one of the most aggressive and STUBBORN dog breeds lol. You will need ALOT of patience and get it trained while young. Ive had one and it brings joy and tears. Like a kid lol. Train it young, good luck! Theyre NOT like 101 Dalmatians.

  6. I have two Dals. My grandmother has 6. They’re like chips, you can’t just have one.

    They’re a handful and crazy, extremely good driven most of the time and crazy smart.

    Try to do agility or lure coursing, tons of running= dog with less time to get in trouble.

  7. I am surprised to see so many people talk about their Dalmatians. I have never owned one or known anyone who has owned one. I never knew it was such a popular breed.
