Finding Dalmatian Puppies
The Dalmatian Puppy Resource Page
A guide to finding a reputable breeder of Dalmatian Puppies in the USAFinding your Dalmatian puppy, bred by a reputable breeder, is not as easy as it should be. When we first moved to the US, I started to use the various search engines to see what "just a pet Dalmatian puppy” buyer would find, and I was surprised to see that the online market was mainly displaying puppy millers and backyard breeders, displaying pictures of poorly bred Dalmatians that often looked malnourished. Unfortunately, the latter is not always so obvious to the untrained eye but it certainly is to Dalmatian experts.
Avoiding Puppy farmers and commercial breeders of DalmatiansThe other variant of Dalmatian Puppy links I found where the commercial pages, designed to display many adverts. They either host discussion boards or aparent breed expert information, which is not the case. Most text are copied from pages which are out of date by many years. This is when I decided to create this Dalmatian Resource Link collection. It will give you a good number of links that will help you to find the right Breeder of YOUR Dalmatian puppy.

The American Kennel Club
Supporting the AKCAnother major reason to start your search with the AKC, is that the American Kennel Club is using all its resources to improve on educating its breeders and puppy buyers, whilst not favoring individuals. They also set minimum standards, and the only reason a breeder of Dalmatians would not register with the AKC but with the CKC instead is if the puppies where not eligible for registration with the AKC. So please go ahead and do the right thing by supporting the right effort.

Dalmatian breed Clubs can help you find a Rescue Dalmatian too
Finding reputable breeders of DalmatiansKeep this in mind and instead of searching for a Dalmatian puppy to be available in two weeks’ time, find a Dalmatian breeder that you can trust and that will put every possible effort into raising their litters with care. Knowledge is also an important factor when breeding Dalmatian puppies. Every 5 Generation Dalmatian pedigree contains 62 dogs! It is impossible to find 1, never mind 62 dogs that only carry healthy genes. Try to choose a breeder who has a good understanding of the various modes of inheritance and you will give yourself the best chance of adopting a great family pet.

Even if you would prefer to rescue a Dalmatian as opposed to adopting a Dalmatian puppy, these Clubs are great Dalmatian Resources for you since they will always be able to provide you with details of a local Dalmatian Rescue organization. Some Dalmatian Breeders also have adult Dalmatian dogs for adoption, either because they have been returned to them or because they chose to retire their Dalmatian dog from the show ring. These are great opportunities to own a beautiful and well trained Dalmatian dog.
