If you are looking for a new pet, you may be considering getting a Poodle and Dalmatian mix. This hybrid breed is both intelligent and sensitive. It needs lots of attention and exercise.

Depending on which poodle is bred, a Dalmadoodle may be miniature, standard, or toy. The average Dalmadoodle is between 40 and 70 lbs and 21 to 23 inches in height. Because of their unique mix of characteristics, a Dalmadoodle will differ from its parents. However, Dalmadoodles can be very high-maintenance dogs. Their long, wavy coat can be either short or long.
As mentioned, Dalmatians have a long history. They were loved by French royalty and nobles for their waterfowl retrieving abilities. Throughout history, this breed has also gained popularity as a show dog. Both the French and German Kennel Clubs recognized the breed as a dog. The entertainment industry adopted the Poodle after the French Revolution. The Dalmadoodle is a relatively new breed, probably originating in the late 1990s.

The Dalmatian and Poodle have different characteristics. A Poodle has a wavy hair while a Dalmatian has straight hair. The genes that control curl are found in two families. Dalmadoodles can inherit either a curly or wavy hairstyle. This is determined by the parents. This is genetic so the Dalmadoodle can be curly or straight.
When looking for a Dalmadoodle, you should ensure that the breeder is ethical. A reliable breeder should be able to provide DNA tests and health certificates. A Dalmadoodle is curious and loves to explore through sniffing and chewing and smelling. They are generally healthy but can chew toxic plants and electrical cords. You should provide your Dalmadoodle with a large yard, and a daily walk.
The temperament of the pup is another consideration. Poodles and Dalmatians are affectionate and friendly with their family members but reserved around strangers. Your new Poodle or Dalmatian will likely be very similar to another parent breed. If you are not sure which one is the best fit for you, ask your breeder about their temperament and other parent breeds.
