When you see a Dalmatian, what's the first thing you think of? Most would say those lovely spots, firehouse mascots or Disney's 101 Dalmatians. The latter resulted in a surge of demand for the breed among families with children. Ironically, the breed is not necessarily ideal for smaller kids because of it's highly active nature. However, proper training and socialization can make a huge difference. Dalmatians are often wrongly labeled as goofy, hyperactive and uncontrollable. This behavior, if seen, is probably due to lack of proper exercise or training. Make no mistake, owning a Dalmatian takes dedication. When raised properly, the breed makes a wonderfully noble and affectionate sidekick.

Interested in this breed? Learn more about Dalmatians and decide if this spotted beauty is the one for you. Are you already head over heels for the Dalmatian? Tell others all about these unique, versatile dogs.
