Question Dalmatian dogs?

Looking for some opinion on Dalmatian dogs.
We lost out lab of 13 years and my wife is interested in getting a Dalmatian next. I am a big labrador fan but being a fireman, I have always thought it would be neat to have a Dalmatian.
Hoping to hear some opinions on training, behavior, temperament, etc.
We have 5 and 3 year old daughters, so we want a good fit for the family.

I had a female years ago. Never saw a more loyal and protective dog but she was testy around kids. I didnt have any kids so I cant say how she would have been with kids in her family

I had one early in college because I thought it would be cool. Did not like strangers or anyone besides me and my roomate who lived in the house. As he got older the meaner he got and he began to snap at folks. Did not like him around friends and kids that came by. Gave him to a guy who lived out in the country at age 4. Said I would never get another one and have not. I've been a lab guy ever since. Labs have personalities, they are lovable, they are working dogs with a purpose.....they are pleasers. None of which my dalmation was.

I think they are cool dogs, but I have heard they can be pretty aggressive. Also, when I was a kid the couple that ran a deer lease we were on had one. He was mean and everyone knew to stay away from him especially kids. That said, like any dog I’m sure if they are raised and socialized good they can be okay.

I had one in college at SFA. Zero was known all over campus. He would follow me to class and sit by the door waiting until I came out.

It took a few days to train him to not be distracted by other students. He was a great dog with a good temperament.

I had one for about a month (gave her to the local fire dept).

I wasnít a fan of her personality, she had a lot of dander, and wasnít the friendliest to small people/kids. Iíll stick to my German Shepherds.

Had a Dalmation Heeler cross. He was really good natured and loved the woods, birds, pigs, etc. Skin problems tore him up. He was a good dog and very loyal. Sneaky as the devil, though (that was the heeler side).

I’m sure some will disagree, but it’s all in how you socialize them as a pup and continue on thru their first year. I have a 160 pound male Presa Canario, known by most as “man eaters” and banned in many countries across the world. He was fully obedience trained by 6 months. I started socializing him the day I brought him home. He is know 2.5 years old. He goes to the nursing home with me to visit my grandma all the time. He’s been to the Veterans Center. Anyone can pet him, but he is protective of me as far as he never takes his eyes off me and always stays between me and whoever else is around.

My point in saying this is, any breed can be mean/aggressive. Any breed can be gentle/nice to all. You as the owner are responsible for how they turn out. If you don’t work with them and just let them decide how they want to be on their own.....well it’s a crap shoot. Cocker Spaniels have disfigured more kids faces than just about any other breed.

I had one for a few years- from a puppy to ~2-3 yo.
It was the least smart (to put it nicely) dog I ever owned.

I gave it to a wrecker shop and it became their yard dog until it played in traffic one too many times.

I grew up having a Dalmatian my entire life and will always have at least one. I have two right now. One is around 10 years old and the other is 3 and they're awesome dogs. I've never had a problem out of them besides the shedding. It can get bad at times. My grandparents have four and they're the same way. My grandparents own a fire museum and constantly have strangers at their place and have never had one issue with them being aggressive in any way. My grandparents are actually looking for a male to breed one of their dogs now. If anyone has a male that'd be interested in breeding pm me. He's located in Waller.

I have to agree, itís socialization, training, knowing the breeds requirements and establishing leadership.
Maybe some of the comments about Dalmatians being mean and not good with kids is actually that they have been put in a yard without the physical and mental exercise required of the breed? Maybe the bad with small kids is actually pent up energy..... either way, most ďbadĒ dogs behaviors are a direct result of the owner not doing his part. IMO

Default Dalmatian dogs?

My dog was socialized. He was good at first and went south as he got older. All my dogs are socialized and obedience trained. My working labs went through more extensive training than 99.9% of the biscuit eating socialized yard runners so I understand the concepts and needs.

Socializing dogs and obedience training is nothing new. Bad owners making bad dogs is nothing new either. But some breeds of dogs just arenít meant to be family dogs... sure there are some outliers and some ďoh yeah my dog wouldnít hurt a flyĒ owners but as a whole through the years I have heard more bad about Dalmatians than good and itís not close. This thread pretty much follows the trend.

Had one growing up. She had brown spots rather than black. She was sweet, extremely high strung and a ton of energy. Like others have said, they are not the smartest dogs, but very loyal. I never saw aggression from her towards strangers, but Iíve seen other Dalmatians that were not family friendly at all.

Our Dalmatian was fiercely protective. He would protect "his" family, as well as the other 9 houses on our culdesac we grew up in. He knew the cars / trucks, etc. Over the course of his life, he bit three people that "did not belong". When we let him out, we had to muzzle him. Fiercely loyal, but not good around others. My $.02.

Dalmatians do not make good pets. They were originally bred as guard dogs believe it or not. Not attack dogs, guard dogs.

Ours actually came from my brothers firehouse. Got him as a pup and brother took him there. Always around people and spoiled. He did not like outsiders. Of course we got him when he couldn’t be at firehouse. I liked him. He just didn’t like other people

Had one that was DUMB! Tried all types of way to keep him in. Would dig under the fence so we got a hot wire fence. Then decided he could go over. Once he got out he would not stop running. Spent hours chasing that stupid dog. Was a moody dog also. Would play fine with other people and dogs then would switch in a second. Will never have another.

I agree that socialization is key and GOOD STRONG training... But I just see no upside to them(damations).

PS I would LOVE to meet your presa... I waant a Corso soooo bad....

If your wife just wants a spotty dog look at the setters, they are beautiful, spotty known to be super friendly... AND LOVE BIRDS!

Agree with above... had one as a teenager and they take a lot of work. Ours was very hard headed and extremely smart. Tons of obedience work put in with her but she just had a mind of her own, was temperamental (ornery) and DID NOT LIKE strangers of any kind. All my friends knew to avoid our yard if she was outside. Know of several people who got dalmatians because of the Budweiser commercials only to give them up because of issues.

If you get one, just don't expect it to be blindly loyal/friendly like a lab. Different breed.

I'm not a fan of Dalmations. They are protective, aggressive and prone to biting not to mention they are frequently deaf. I have some scars on my leg where I was attacked and bitten by a stupid dalmation. They are the opposite of Labradors IMHO.

My only experience around one was my neighbor's when I was a kid. My brother and I used to take care of their pets whenever they went on trips or vacations as a little "job". The neighbor and their other dogs were cool, but their dalmation was a piece of work. I was always nervous around that dog, and though I never got bitten, I always felt like it was only a matter of time. Sucker was mean.

If you like spots, you can always just get you a black and white GSP. Mine is horribly stubborn, and eats like a horse, but he's as sweet as can be.

I believe socialization is key. Some dogs are done from the get go. Everybody and their mom breeding for spots not taking into temperament. If you bought from a reputable breeder I dont see any issues.

Y’all have confirmed what I thought to be true.

She has read this thread and understands why it is not a good idea.
Looks like I will get another Labrador retriever when we are ready.

Some people need to come to the understanding that dogs are just like any other animal in the animal kingdom. Some breeds are good. Some breeds are bad. Idk nothing about Dalmatians but from the sound of it, they’re worse than pits. I’ve been around a buncha pits That were raised from puppies in a good home and raised what you would consider right. And still turned out mean. Why take the chance of owning a breed that’s known to be mean and have that reputation. From the sounds of it I’d go back with a lab. Or anything other than a Dalmatian from the sounds of it! I just have no sympathy for parents that get breeds to be known as mean and have a kid get bitten. Feel bad for the kid. But the parents are to blame. Just ignorance. Some are good breeds. Some need bullets

I had a Liver spotted one, he wasn't very smart but never aggressive. We were told by the breeder to feed him a can of pea's every week that it was great for his skin...

My neighbor had a dalmatian that attacked me in my driveway. I was able to grab a box in my garage and fend it off before it went back to it's house. I had become really good friends with the neighbor so that was an awkward conversation. He didn't think the dog had a mean bone in his body until he let it out of his backyard as a test. The dog attacked me again and he was stunned and embarrassed. He was good about keeping the dog contained so all was ok.
