What is a Dalmatian?
Remember the famous Disney animated film called The 101 Dalmatians? The dogs in this Disney film were Dalmatians. Did you know this dog breed is hundreds of years old? They were originally bred to run alongside carriages to keep robbers away! Today, these dogs are adopted to be family companions and they’re great at this, as they love their pet parents!
Most people in the world are familiar with these beautiful dogs and their spotted coats. These elegant dogs are muscular and built to run for long distances, which means they’re full of energy. And they’re a large dog standing at 19 to 24 inches, and weighing between 45 to 70 lbs. They’re average life expectancy is between 11 and 13 years.
These dogs love their humans and usually have one they prefer most of all. If you’re one of these, then consider yourself blessed! Dalmatians tend to be intelligent, loyal, and loving dogs. They can, however, be wary of strangers and make good watchdogs.
Your Dalmatian will need plenty of exercise on a regular basis. They love chasing a ball, running with you, running alongside your bike, or hiking. And they have endurance and stamina, so they may keep going when you’re ready to poop out!
Because these dogs are very dependent on their preferred person, they can suffer from separation anxiety if left along for long periods. This may cause them to become destructive, meaning you may come home from work and find your pillows and other chewables destroyed.
Dalmatians have a lovely white coat with black spots that doesn’t require too much extra care. Your dog will need to have a bath once in a while and should be brushed about once a week.
These are some quick facts on your dog! Your Dalmatian will be a loving companion who enjoys doing everything with you! We hope you’ve enjoyed reading through all these Dalmatian dog name ideas! And we hope you’ve found the best name for your canine companion!
