The Dalmatian Club of Greater New York is one of about 35 regional clubs affiliated with the Dalmatian Club of America.Our purpose is to encourage and promote the  Dalmatian breed and to do all that is possible to bring their natural qualitites to perfection; urging members to accept the Standard of the Breed, as approved by the American Kennel Club, and to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience trials and special events.

Whether we are breeders, show our dogs in conformation, obedience, agility, rally, lure coursing or other performance events, or enjoy our Dals as companions, members all love their "spots".
