AUSTRALIAN BREED STANDARD AND EXTENSION

GENERAL APPEARANCE

    THE DALMATIAN SHOULD BE A BALANCED, STRONG, MUSCULAR, ACTIVE DOG OF GOOD DEMEANOUR. SYMMETRICAL IN OUTLINE, FREE FROM COARSENESS AND LUMBER, CAPABLE OF GREAT ENDURANCE WITH A FAIR AMOUNT OF SPEED.

    The Dalmatian is a distinctively spotted dog, however, no dog is more normal in its make up than the Dalmatian. It is free from abnormalities and exaggeration. Other than its spotting, which will be discussed in detail later, no features are peculiar to this breed.  Balanced in all proportions, it is an active, medium sized dog, displaying the stamina, strength and musculation needed to keep up with horses for long periods of time. In addition, the Dalmatian is elegant and graceful enough to enhance the appearance of any horse and carriage. BALANCE and proportions should satisfy the eye and give a sense of perfect harmony both in repose and action. STRONG, MUSCULAR, ACTIVE. The Dalmatian conveys the impression of substance combined with elegance and perfect balance, never overdone. CAPABLE OF GREAT ENDURANCE. With its purpose as a carriage dog so important, the Dalmatian should have the ability to trot long distances alongside a coach. FAIR AMOUNT OF SPEED. This is interpreted as meaning an ability to accelerate with a quick burst of speed when necessary. While it must have the stamina to go all day, it must also have an action that is economical in order to conserve energy, Although the Dalmatians purpose as a carriage dog is obsolete, the standard is written with this in mind. Stamina is a must for this breed is achieved only with a combination of soundness, firm topline, correct rib cage, correct boning, good feet, correct angulation and sufficient exercise to produce good hard muscles
