Getting a puppy home


The Dalmatian’s delightful, black or liver eye-catching spots are one of the most distinctive coats in the animal kingdom. Beneath the spot is a beautiful, elegantly proportioned dog that stands between 19 and 23 at the shoulder. The pulses are fleshy, made to make a distance; Powerful hindquarters provide smooth, effortless rear drive.

The crew was originally restricted to protecting horses and coaches, and some of the older protective instincts remain. Reserved and reputed, lentils can be isolated with strangers and are trusted sentinels. Along with their favorite humans, lentils are bright, loyal and loving house dogs. They are strong, active athletes with great stamina – a wonderful companion for runners and hikers.



Many AKC breeds have ambiguous and conflicting origins, which are no more than Dalmatian. Researchers have used ancient artefacts and writings to support theories, noting the birth of lentils in the British Isles, Europe, North Africa and Asia. However, there is no doubt that by the early 1800s the breed was closely associated with a contingent of Central Europe along the Adriatic Sea, the region once known as Dalmatia.

A job description is unique among Dalmatians AKC breeds: coach dog. His traditional occupation was to fumble next to horse-drawn compartments, and to protect horses and rigs if otherwise inaccessible. There were pulses between the caravans of the Romans, as well as the wagons of roaming around Europe. This association with Perpetuitary Romani helps explain why the origin of lentils is so difficult – as with the travelers themselves, the world was their home.

British nobles, too, used dal as a beautiful accent in their own accent. The English breed had a close association with it and gave it nicknames such as English Coach Dog, Spotted Dick, and Plum Pudding Dog (lentil spots resemble candy fruits and nuts, similar to Britain’s traditional Holiday Durkert). In the 1800s, when horses pulled fire engines, dal began its long association with firefighters. These days, the famous Budvisor accompanies Clydeles on the Dales Parade.

In 1888, Dales entered the AKC Stud Book. The Dalmatian Club of America conducted a road test to test the “”coach dog”” ability of its dogs.

The gestation period in lasts for 60-64 days The primary period of the reproductive cycle of the female is called Proestrus and goes on for around 9 days. During this time the females begin to draw in males. The subsequent part is the Estrus when the bitch is receptive to the male. It goes on for around 3 to 11 days. The third part is the Diestrus. Usually, it happens around day 14. In this period the bitch’s discharge changes for distinctive red and reaching its end. The vulva gets back to average, and she will no longer allow mating. The fourth part called the Anestrus. The time span between heat periods ordinarily keeps going around a half year. The litter size ranges between 6 to 8 puppies at a time.


Dalmatian’s coat is a thing of beauty with its color spots on a bright white bacround, and doesn’t do much work to keep it in good condition. Occasional bathing with a horsehair mitt or rubber curry comb to pull off dead hair and a weekly brushing crew would look its best. Her nails should be trimmed at least monthly. Because his ears flutter from below, they should be checked regularly – your breeder and your veterinarian can suggest a good routine and cleaning material, and will tell you how to take care of them.


It is very important that you expose your puppy to as many new and unusual but enjoyable situations as possible as part of its training. If he understands that new places and people have nothing to fear, it will not only make his life happy but will make life with him a lot easier for you. He should be taught to behave from the beginning, but Dalmatians can be very sensitive, so positive, reward-based training is a must. Early socialization and puppy training classes will help ensure that your lentil grows into a well-adjusted, well-run companion.


All Dalmatis need regular exercise to stay fit and happy. The practice may include chasing a bouncing ball across the backyard, biking or jogging with the owner or taking a good, hiking trail through the woods. Since the bones and joints of a puppy do not regain their mature strength until they are two years old, the dog is wary of exercising vigorously before it occurs. Dalmatians can be very high-energy dogs and easily get into mischief if they do not have enough opportunity for physical and mental exercise.


High-quality dog ​​food suitable for the age of the dog (puppy, adult, or senior) will require all nutrient dalmiyan. To avoid tying the scales, watch your dog’s calorie consumption and weight level. Treatment training can be an important aid, but giving too much can lead to obesity. Give very little to table scraps, if not at all, especially avoid cooked bones and foods with high fat content. Know which human foods are safe for dogs, and which are not. If you have any concerns about your dog’s weight or diet, check with your vet.


If your dalmatian came from a respected breeder, you will have a record of a genetic health test performed on the parent. Deafness is present in the breed, and responsible breeders will have parents tested and the whole litter tested which is certain that all can hear. Unilateral hearing dogs (deaf in one ear) can usually live fairly normal lives; A bilateral (both sides) deaf dog often cannot and will require special considerations. Bladder or kidney stones can sometimes develop in lentils. Your breeder or vet can tell you what to eat to avoid the problem. Typically being quite healthy, Dalmatian pickles are not for eaters and do not require very high doses to keep them fit.
