The Dalmatian breeder practices methods common to all breeds of dogs. These methods are ethical and cover breeding, selling, and showing. They were developed to protect both the buyer and the seller.
A female dog should not be bred before the age of one year or after the age of eight years. A male dog should not be used as stud under the age of nine months. The female should not be bred more than two out of three seasons. It is preferable to breed her only every other season.
