Dalmatian Characteristics

The Dalmatian is a breed with a purpose. Originally bred as "Coach” or carriage dogs, these dogs are also well known as hunting dogs, firehouse dogs, and circus performers. With focused obedience training and early socialization, these dogs can also make fantastic household companions and friends to your children and other pets.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Determined

Instantly recognizable from film and tv, the Dalmatian is a breed with an iconic white coat full of black spots and a body full of energy and determination. These dogs were originally bred to run next to carriages as a form of protection, and this skill helped translate them to the firehouse dogs you know today. This endurance also allows them to excel at flyball and agility games.  If you're looking for a companion who is always ready to join you on a run or bicycle ride, this is your dog.

The Dalmation is a medium-large dog, standing around 19-24 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 48-55 pounds. Along with their highly active bodies, Dalmations have highly active brains!  These incredibly smart dogs need obedience training while they’re puppies to establish rules for behavior, or they will assume the role of alpha and attempt to run things. Once trained, though, their intelligence makes them wonderful lifelong companions.

The breed is also predisposed to deafness. This condition is hereditary, and all Dalmatian bloodlines can pass along deafness to their puppies. Around eight percent of Dalmatians are born entirely deaf, and 22-24% are born with hearing in one ear only. Trust us, though, it won’t make you love them any less. 

How dog-friendly is North Dakota?

We’ve found that different studies rank North Dakota quite differently on dog-friendly factors. The state does a great job with some aspects of pet accommodations and services. The main area of improvement for North Dakota is in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at two leading studies to understand the state’s rankings.


An animal welfare group called Pawsafe releases a ranking of all 50 states according to several pet-friendly factors. Pawsafe ranks North Dakota 45th of all the states. It’s a pretty tough ranking. As we mentioned the main issue is that North Dakota does not score well for laws against animal cruelty like pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Safewise conducts another study looking even more closely at safety for pets and their human friends. They actually give North Dakota a much better ranking, listing the state as the 21st most pet-friendly in the country. 


If we take the two studies together, North Dakota still ranks somewhere in the middle compared to other states.
