Not the best breed for kids

Although I loved my dog because he was brilliant and trained well, this isn't the first breed I would recommend for a family pet. They are easy to train because they are insanely intelligent, but this can get them into trouble sometimes as well! They need training early in life to establish rules for behavior, or they will decide it is their job to run things. Dalmatians can be a bit headstrong so training must be firm and consistent. Not the best family dogs for children because they are workhorses; their priorities lie in duty rather than play despite the fact they are so enthusiastic and high-energy.
