There is no standard requirements for the waist of a Dalmatian. But, if you would like to know if your dog is over-weight, the best way is to do the 'feel test'. In which you place your finger tips on the dogs sides and if you can feel the ribs without having to push in, then the dog is at a good weight. But, if you have to push in to feel the dog's ribs, then he/she can stand to loose a couple of pounds.
