Dalmatians are among the dog breeds that have the richest and most colorful personalities. Its interesting that the dog’s captivating and charming dispositions actually have patterns that somehow have human counterparts. Read on to know more about these common themes.
Some males, for example, are such scrupulous souls that are sensitive to raised voices and tense atmospheres. They are unabashed mamma’s boys, and are quiet, gentle and once in a while are happy to just be wallflowers that are allowed some quiet times alone. It is granted that they may have short attention spans (and therefore very fidgety during grooming time), not great lovers of chores and work, bad at recall (their nose is sometimes their worst enemy) and even more when it comes to schooling and dalmation training. But on the bright side, no breed can possibly be funnier and more fun than these charming and winsome clowns. And just like growing guys and men out there, a male dal is notable for his growing appetite, believing that your actions while he is eating is somehow connected with getting him more food!
Without jumping to dalmation training conclusions, females also seem to be different characters from the males. They may exhibit higher prey drive than the males, but they are more obedient and can take better care of themselves. The females seem more perky, and may direct boisterous barking at any noise and caller that drifts towards the direction of the house. What is not clear however, is which gender is nippier, more excitable and more prone to self-centeredness. But females have that certain world of their own built on cunning brilliance; owners can almost hear their brains’ ticking as they cook up ways to do things they shouldn’t!
The variety of dalmatian personalities result to an almost- “quaint village” feel in case a dog owner owns several dalmatians. For example, an owner may identify the so-called gypsy, since it is more of a loner than a home buddy, and is more likely to loiter, rather than mingle. Another dog will call to mind the anxious school-boy, always eager to please and who may just faint if told that he is doing something wrong. Still another dog has an aristocratic air about her, friendly and well-mannered but conscious of her superiority, and thus refusing anything that hints of chores and work.
