Dalmatians are highly energetic, playful and sensitive dogs. They are loyal to their family and good with children, although some Dalmatian experts caution that the breed may be too energetic for very small children. These dogs are intelligent, can be well trained and make good watchdogs.

As wonderful and beautiful as the Dalmatian breed is, there are a few things we as owners should be concerned with when it comes to their health. Just like any other breed, there are certain breed specific problems that Dalmatians suffer from. And of course there are other health problems that are not specific to the breed as well. Having said that, before we continue let me just say that Dalmatians are relatively healthy overall. When I say “common” health problems, I do not mean that these problems are common for all Dalmatians. Majority of them wont have to deal with most of these of these problems at all, but being aware of what could go wrong is important.
