Understanding and Training a Dalmatian


The Dalmatian is first and foremost a hardy, high-spirited and high-energy working dog, therefore it is important to help channel energy through obedience, plenty of exercise, games and activities involving mental stimulation.

Recall is also a very important command for the Dalmatian as the breed is known to roam and explore. A patient handler can teach this breed almost anything.
