Woooo!

This is Patch. He's very sweet, 18 months old and rather excitable. We got him home a few hours ago and now he's finished running around the house licking and smelling everything he's found his bed and nodded off

If that wee creature has any dalmation in him, then he's a nutter !!

Our Sam (see avatar) is labrador x dally and he's constantly on the go, even at 7 years old.

The tree he tried to dig up last summer has finally died now but we still love him to bits.

Cheers

Hugh

He's a purebred Dalmatian! And yes, a little bit of a nutter... but very sweet. Likes lots of cuddles and mauling anything made of plastic. Chased a kite round the park for an hour this evening... lol.

Congrats on the dog!! I wish I could get one, but my high-travel job won't allow me.

Lovely dog. A Mac guy in Christchurch (NZ) has one of the nicest Dalmatians I've ever met. Her name is Phoebe and the guy's business is named after her - Phoebe Enterprises. She was strictly trained from pup age and is just a delight.

Attached is a pic of my mutt, named Josie, Collie/Blue Heeler cross, rescued from death row, now demon destroyer of possums and bumblebees.

Patch is an excellent name.

-grooming;
get a soft rubber glove and if the dog has the typical dalmation fur it will stick to the glove directly. i found the stiff short fur embeds it self into furniture and basically everything. brushing helps. the dogs love the glove, its like a back rub to them.

-dalmations can be protective.
be aware of possible aggression. especially in situations where the dog can get confused on ownership or protection issues. slow things down for the dog so he can understand while you introduce new things. be firm but soft to the dog. good advice to all dog owners.

-toys
goto a 2nd hand store and get a few stuffed teddy bears, selection is critical since the dog could eat buttons etc and will empty the stuffing out in the end. get him things to chew, there are rubber bones that you can stuff with meat cheese to get him interested.

Absolutely great dog ... congratulations.

I hope you can keep up with his(her) very high levels of energy, they can run forever.

Some advice as well ( based on experience ) is to have the hearing checked every year as dalmations can have a tendency for hearing problems and if you don't know that, you may think he is no longer listening to you, which is not the case.

Enjoy the lifetime friendship.

I could do with a little advice here...

Patch does the most awful farts I have ever known. Great long ones which quite literally stink out the entire house. And I'm not talking a few times a day, it is CONSTANTLY. I've installed 3 plug in airfresheners, they don't touch it. I mean, it's so bad you have to laugh, cough, and leave the room. People who come over are pretty shocked by it.

My last dog did some nasty farts, but this is beyond belief. He doesn't seem bothered, and his poos are all normal...

Sorry for the rather unpleasant subject matter.

We've changed his food from the really cheap stuff his breeder gave us to Bakers, but it's made no difference...

Any tips?
