Yes. With their urinary tract issues and high energy, this is a decidedly high maintenance breed. A lot of thought should go into the decision to bring a Dalmatian into your home. Do you have the time to walk them multiple times a day, and make sure they get more vigorous daily exercise as well? Do you have the patience for daily training and socialization sessions with your headstrong pup? If you answer no to any of these questions, this breed is not for you. If you answer yes to them all, you can look forward to adventures with a boisterous, charming dog.
