Yes, a lot! Daily brushing with kong brush is recommended.

The answer is yes, but less than average. Daily brushings with a soft rubber kong or other gentle short bristled fur brush will do. The fur is white, so expect to have random white hairs attached to your life... The dal coat is short and not very thick so it does not take long to remove the dead fur for the next day or 2. You may also want to consider supplementing an oatmeal based shampoo for sensitive skin care..Hope this helps.

Yes Dalmatians do shed a lot, though my male Dalmatian I had didn't shed that much at all. But my female was a huge shedder!! You can expect to have little white hairs everywhere! And they are not easy to get out of furniture and carpet. You can expect to have lint rollers everywhere as the hairs will be all over your clothes also. I found that if I used the Furminator that helped some.
