    Default Info on Dalmations

    im thinking about getting a dalmatian puppy. not just yet but in the next few years when my pup is grown up so i dont have to deal with 2 puppies while trying to train them etc.

    how much do they roughly sell for as a puppy??

    i may even consider a rescue as long as its not older then 1 year old as i would like to train to sit and stay etc.

    my dogs are inside dogs so is to be toilet trained

    Best thing to do is contact the breed club. You are welcome to join a breed club even if you don't actually own the breed. This way you can learn about your chosen breed before you buy a pup.

    Dalmatian Club of Victoria - Home

    I was a member of both the Pug and Deerhound clubs before buying my first pups. This way I got to know the members, chose the type I liked best and was placed at the top of waiting lists because I had shown I was genuinely interested.

    Hope this helps.

    That's good advice - I will keep that in mind when I'm looking for my next pup- thanks for sharing Deerhound

    weird. why do you think it's not possible to train older dog? these are just really simple things, which you can teach your dog no matter what age.

    and one more thing. it is dalmatiAn, not dalmatiOn

    older dogs are usally harder to train and get to listen as i will be taking to dog obediance and will want dog/puppy to get used to other dogs.

    i prefer younger dogs to bring into the family so as they can get used to things in our lives such as kids etc. an older dog who is a rescue may never have had kids in its life living with them and may react differently

    sorry about spelling not thinking today
