About Us

  The Western Reserve Dalmatian Club is located in Cleveland, Ohio. With the objective of promoting the pure bred Dalmatian, the club was formed in 1965 and has grown to approximately 40  members that meet monthly.

  Club members are actively involved with their Dalmatians participating in AKC conformation, obedience and agility.  Members also march with their dogs in numerous local parades and others compete with their Dals in Frisbee competitions. Some of our Dals even work as Therapy Dogs, visiting with hospice patients, nursing home residents, and veterans to bring comfort and healing to them.  The members are a very diverse group of individuals, all brought together by the love of Dalmatians.

  The members of the Western Reserve Dalmatian Club are available to help you decide if a Dalmatian is right for you and your family.

The Western Reserve Dalmatian Club meets on the 3rd Saturday of the month  at the Strongsville Fire Station at 11287 Webster Road between Whitney and Royalton (Route #82) Roads.

Congratulations to all the winners!

We look forward to seeing you all at the DCA National in May 2019!

Buy your new puppy only from

a reputable, responsible breeder!

Reputable breeders are usually active in dog shows, obedience trials, breed rescue, etc.

Reputable breeders will be members of the Dalmatian Club of America, as well as a regional club such as the Western Reserve Dalmatian Club, or a local all-breed or obedience club. They will have demonstrated a long-term commitment to the breed.

Reputable breeders will place pet puppies on AKC Limited Registration and require that they be spayed or neutered.

Reputable breeders will outline all details of the sale in a written contract.

Reputable breeders will supply the buyer with detailed information on caring for their new puppy.

Reputable breeders will have given the puppies all preliminary puppy vaccinations, and will have them checked by a vet.

Reputable breeders will interview the prospective buyer at length, and will be willing to answer questions.

Reputable breeders will require notification if you are not willing to keep the puppy and are always willing to take a puppy back if the owner cannot or will not care for it. This does not imply any money be returned.

Reputable breeders will always be there to help you with a problem.

Adding a dog (any breed) to your family is a serious responsibility and a long-term commitment for the life of the dog...  

Are you ready for a 15 YEAR COMMITMENT?
