The Dalmatian Heritage Project is dedicated to preserving and improving the Dalmatian breed. Begun in 2005, the mission of the Dalmatian Heritage Project is to encourage best practices for raising healthy Dalmatians of good character.

Our goal is to reduce or eliminate genetic problems associated with the breed. That can be done by selecting parent dogs from among those that have the best chance of producing puppies that:

  1. Have normal urinary metabolism
  2. Have normal hearing
  3. Are friendly and confident

The Dalmatian Heritage Project networks with breeders who make every effort to produce healthy, happy Dalmatians. If you think you might like to add a Dalmatian to your family, please browse through these pages to learn more about the project.
