While out a walk last night I spotted another Dalmatian up ahead, the woman saw me and stopped and waited for us to get near, I thought so the dogs could say hello, as I got near though she started to wrap the dog lead round and round her hand till the dog was pressed right against her and the Dal started snarling like crazy at us, clearly not a friendly dog at all. She obviously knew this so why wait for us to get near! There are not many Dalmatians round here but hubby has met a few people who have owned them and so far we have only had a handful of people say ANYTHING positive about the breed, its quite disconcerting as new owners and as much as I feel like I should ignore it I would be telling a big lie if I said it didnt make me fret..... I know Dals need more walking etc but we are totally prepared for that, in fact we look forward to it, but are we really quite likely to get behaviour problems and aggression???
