Dalmatian Dogs & Puppies for Sale

With their distinctive coats, Dalmatians are one of the world's most recognisable breeds. However, choosing a Dalmatian puppy or adult dog takes careful consideration. Read our guide to buying and rehoming a dog safely for more information.

What are the characteristics of a Dalmatian?

Dalmatians are highly energetic, intelligent, and friendly dogs, making them an excellent choice for active individuals or families. Originally bred as carriage dogs, Dalmatians love to run and need plenty of exercise to keep them happy. Their loyalty and protective nature make them good watchdogs, and they can be very affectionate with their family members.

Are Dalmatians a good choice for families?

Dalmatians make excellent pets for active families that can meet their exercise and needs. They are playful and generally good with children, but may be better suited to homes with older children and teenagers due to their size and energy levels. Socialisation and obedience training from the puppy stage onwards are important to help them become well-adjusted adults.

Are there any downsides to owning a Dalmatian?

Dalmatians have very high energy levels, and need lots of exercise every day to prevent boredom and destructive behaviour. They are also prone to certain health issues, such as deafness and urinary stones. Finally, despite having short coats, they shed throughout the year.

How much does a Dalmatian puppy cost?

The cost of a Dalmatian puppy in the UK can vary significantly, depending on the litter's location and lineage, and whether the puppy has undergone health checks and been vaccinated. Prices typically range from £3600 to over £31,500. You will also need to budget for ongoing expenses, including food, grooming, and vet bills.

How long do Dalmatians typically live?

Dalmatians have a lifespan of around 10 to 13 years. With proper care, including regular check-ups at the vet, a healthy diet, and plenty of exercise, Dalmatians can enjoy a full and active life.

Are there any common health issues I should be aware of?

Dalmatians have a genetic predisposition to deafness, with a large number of dogs suffering from some form of hearing loss. They can also develop bladder stones.

How much grooming do Dalmatians need?

Dalmatians have short, thick coats that shed all-year round. Regular brushing can help manage shedding and keep their coat healthy. They only need baths occasionally, but should regularly have their nails trimmed and teeth checked.

Is a Dalmatian the right dog for me if I have a small living space?

Dalmatians are large dogs with high energy levels, so aren't recommended for smaller homes. They do best in homes with secure gardens where they burn off energy, but will still need significant walks out of the house every day to keep them happy.

How often should I exercise my Dalmatian?

As above, Dalmatians need extensive daily exercise. This should include long walks, runs, and opportunities for off-lead play where possible. They are also intelligent dogs, and need mental stimulation from training and interactive play alongside physical exercise.

How can I find a Dalmatian to rehome?

Gumtree hosts a range of Dalmatian listings, from puppies to adult dogs. We recommend exploring our listings and contacting the owners to find out more about the animal. Ask about the dog's health, behaviour, and lineage to ensure the best match for your home.

Gumtree takes animal welfare seriously. To protect pets sold online our listings comply with the Pet Advertising Advisory Group's minimum standards.

Are there similar breeds I might consider?

If you're interested in bringing home a Dalmatian, you might also like breeds like the Vizsla or Weimaraner. These breeds share some traits with Dalmatians, but may have different grooming needs or temperaments.
