Whether you already own a Dalmatian or planning to bring one home soon, it’s important that you know their personality.

Dalmatians are very smart and extremely creative

They are often stubborn and have a mind of their own. They need a strong leadership and a strong-will owner who is capable of establishing his pack leader role. They should be given consistent and firm boundaries as puppies, with a lot of training, unless you want to end up with a very disobedient adult dog.

Dalmatians are social dogs
Dalmatians love every moment of attention that they can get. They love being the center of the room when friends and family stop by for a visit. Going out on walks and meeting new people is another activity that these dogs enjoy.
