Dalmatians were my first breed. I grew up with one as the family pet, together with a couple of bull terriers, so naturally, they became my first show breed. I went to my first open show in 1993 coming home with a handful of rosettes and a reserve of breed and I was hooked. All our Dalmatians are BAER hearing tested, Hip & Elbow Scored and have annual eye checks. We have our litters BAER hearing tested at around 6-7 weeks of age before they leave for their new homes.
