Overview
An ancient breed, it is believed the Dalmatian originated in a section of Yugoslavia called Dalmatia. Their stamina, size, and guard dog capabilities made them a favored breed by English aristocracy. During both World Wars, this breed was used to protect the camps of U.S. soldiers. The Dalmatian is most often associated with being a firehouse dog.
Character
Dalmatians are of medium size and are extremely active and energetic. They are bold, unique, and are known as the clowns of the dog world. This is a versatile breed that possesses the ability to work as a vermin hunter, hound, guard dog, and circus performer as well as being a loyal companion.

Does your Dalmatian bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Dalmatian is exceedingly social and thrives on human companionship and attention. They are extremely sensitive and do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. If they become lonely or bored they will become depressed and destructive. The Dalmatian is not recommended for homes with small children due to their exuberant and rambunctious nature. They will typically get along with household pets they have been raised with, but display aggression to dogs they do not know. This breed is aloof with strangers and makes an excellent watchdog; only barking when absolutely necessary.
Care
The Dalmatian requires frequent brushing with a firm bristle brush to minimize loose hair. Extra attention should be given to the coat during the heavy shedding periods. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary using a mild shampoo to protect the integrity of the coat and skin. This breed does not do well in extreme weather conditions and are prone to fungi from moist grass and soil as well as ticks and fleas. The various health issues that affect this breed include deafness, bladder and kidney stones, skin and food allergies, and hip dysplasia.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Dalmatian has a hard, smooth, short and dense coat. The color of the coat is pure white with spots that are either black or liver. Puppies are born completely white and spots develop as they mature. This breed is a constant shedder with profuse shedding twice a year.
Training
This breed requires intensive and extensive early and lifelong socialization as well as basic obedience. Without training, the Dalmatian has a propensity to be timid or high-strung. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, consistency, reward, and patience. Dalmatians excel in obedience competition, agility, and fly-ball. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Dalmatian puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Dalmatian must have daily frequent exercise. They enjoy participating in family activities and play sessions. Quality time spent with their family is extremely important to this breed. With their high degree of endurance, the Dalmatian makes an excellent walking, jogging, and hiking companion. This breed does best with a securely fenced yard they can romp and run in. Dalmatians are not recommended for apartment dwelling unless it is possible for them to receive a walk or run several times a day. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are Dalmatians good family pets? Why do I rarely see them?

The Dalmatian is not a very popular breed. Their popularity exploded after the 101 Dalmatian's Movie, however with a lot of bad breeding to live up to demand; the breed got a reputation of being bad with kids. However, a well bred Dalmatian and well socialized Dalmatian is a great family pet. But they are prone to health issues such as deafness. So getting one from a reputable and responsible breeder is key.

Just like every person, every dog has their own personality. However, the breed standard temperament is that the Dal is "exceedingly social and thrives on human companionship and attention. They are extremely sensitive and do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. If they become lonely or bored they will become depressed and destructive. The Dalmatian is not recommended for homes with small children due to their exuberant and rambunctious nature. They will typically get along with household pets they have been raised with, but display aggression to dogs they do not know. This breed is aloof with strangers and makes an excellent watchdog; only barking when absolutely necessary."

Is it normal for someone to sell a 7-week old female, no vet visit, no vaccinations, non-registered dalmatian for $350.00. My vet said that it is not legal in Florida to sell a puppy before 8 weeks of age or deaf. I purchased her anyway. I don't plan to breed her, but I was curious as to how I would know what she is if she isn't registered other than her looks.

Sadly, you most likely dog a 'back yard breeder' dog. Which means that someone's dog got pregnant or they planned on getting the dog pregnant without realizing the amount of time, energy and money it takes to raise a healthy litter of puppies. Due to that fact, she was sold early to make it easier on the people's bottom line. Since she is not registered and you don't know who or what her dam and sire were; you can always do a DNA test on her. You can buy them online or through your vet and they can go back up to 5 generations to tell you if your dog is purebred or not; and if she is not, what other breeds are in her.

What does AKA and ACA mean? Are they not full Dalmatians?

Unless the AKA is miss-spelled and meant to be AKC for American Kennel Club, then the only other thing it could be would be is the AKA Dog Training course; but that would not make sense depending on where the breeder lives. However, the ACA stands for American Canine Association; which was developed to track and judge the genetic health of different breeds of dogs. Because blindness and deafness is a problem with the Dalmatian breed, the breeder you are looking at is making sure that his/her dogs are genetically sound before breeding, so that is a really good thing. I would contact your breeder and ask what the AKA stands for for them, or if it is a mistake and meant to be AKC.

I read on here somewhere that Dalmatians are especially fond of Horses. Just wondering if someone knew the facts concerning the correlation of the two. And if there was any other specific breed of dog that makes the same reference concerning horses?

The reason why the Dalmatian breed is good with horses is because they were bred to work around horses. Being a coach dog, they had to be good with horses. But please remember, every dog is different and so not every Dalmatian will have the same bond with horses that another does, but growing up around them/socializing them with horses is a great start. Any breed of dog that grows up around horses should be fine with them. However, please note that dogs with extremely high prey drives will be harder to control around horses. Other breeds that were meant to be around the horse are the Australian Cattle Dog, the Border Collie, the Collie (Rough and Smooth), the Golden Retriever, the Corgi and the Australian Shepherd. But the breeds listed above were bred to work around horses and their owners frequently rode them, while the Dalmatian was bred to work closer with a horse compared to the other breeds.
