So do you think a Dalmatian is just any breed of dog?
They are lovely dogs to look at... But is that what you are looking for?
Please browse my website for more about me and this unique breed...
So, who am I?
My name is Lisa Barrett, owner & hobby breeder of Dalamanti Dalmatians.
I have been a Dalmatian owner, breeder and exhibitor since 2000 and have loved them all my life. I only breed occasionally when I want a dog for myself. I do not breed for business or financial gain, purely as a hobby and my passion for Dalmatians.
First and foremost they are my much loved pets.
I am a member of the British Dalmatian Club, North of England Dalmatian Club, and the Dalmatian Club of Scotland. I have done stints on the committees of 2 of the breed clubs as well which gave me extra knowledge on the breed.
My dogs are BAER hearing tested normal and my Dalmatian puppies are also hearing tested before being homed.
I am currently owned by 6 adorable Dalmatians: Marricdale The Gold Digger of Dalamanti ShCM (Chelsea), from our first litter Dalamanti Secret Sapphire (Malibu), CH Shulune Ice Phantom of Dalamanti ShCM VW (Diesel), daughter of Chelsea and Diesel, Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW ShCM (Jovi), Dalamanti Ruby Raider ShCM (Kiki), daughter of Jovi and the lovely Deny who's owned by Andrew Pratt, finally our very newest addition Dalamanti Hidden Glory (Calli), daughter from Jovi's final litter sired by Cosmo who is bred by Alex Cobb from the successful Kalokairie kennel.
I am planning a litter in 2020 from my gorgeous 2nd youngest girl Kiki (Dalamanti Ruby Raider ShCM), pictured right at 6 weeks old, and Diesel (CH Shulune Ice Phantom of Dalamanti ShCM VW).
This will be Kiki's first litter and most likely Diesel's last as he is getting older. So these puppies will be very special to me. This will be my third generation Dalamanti litter (Kiki's mum is Jovi, Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW ShCM) so I am very excited to see what they produce together.
Only the best homes will do and I have a waiting list filling quickly for this litter.

More details on my Dalmatian puppies page.
There are many ill tempered dogs around. I do whatever I can to ensure my Dalmatians aren't among them. My dogs and puppies are brought up in a busy household around children, cats and other animals to ensure they are well socialised. They really are part of our family.
I occasionally breed from my dogs and I consider temperaments and health as a priority as I know these are the most important aspects of owning a dog and ensuring he/she is happy and well loved. I am always happy to invite visitors to come and meet the adults before considering buying a Dalmatian puppy.
Rest assured if you are looking at my dogs you are looking at a good tempered dog that is safe to have around young children and other animals. I occasionally have Dalmatian puppies for sale. View my Dalmatian puppies page for updates on planned litters. I am confident what you see from my dogs will be what you would get from one of their puppies. Please see more information and any Dalmatians for sale on my Dalmatian Puppies page.
Too many people buy a Dalmatian because they're beautiful, or because of the films, but don't realise the work involved. If you're unsure of their characteristics or any other matter, just ask. We pride ourselves as being responsible Dalmatian breeders and want to find the very best of homes for our puppies.
The love and loyalty these dogs give you in return for their needs, for an experienced owner, is priceless.
BEST IN SHOW
Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW ShCM
Jovi (Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW ShCM) won an amazing 1st Open, Best Of Breed, Utility Group 1, finishing with BEST IN SHOW in incredible company.
A day I won't forget.
Thank you to the judges Breed/Group Judge Mr W Gregory, & Best in Show Judge Miss Sharon Pinkerton.
UTILITY GROUP 1
Dalamanti Ruby Raider
Kiki (Dalamanti Ruby Raider) won a fantastic Adult Utility Group 1 in very strong competition out of a huge group. She is only 13 months old so only just out of puppy. So this is a huge achievement for us.
Thank you to the breed and group judge Ms Alison Morton (Cotherstone) for a super day and for the wonderful comments about my special girl.

Diesel returned to the ring in style at The National on 7th May. After a 2 year break from the ring he came back and won:
Many thanks to breed judge Mr Peter Swinburn for Best Veteran in Breed, and Mr Andrew Brace for an incredible Veteran Group 2.
Mr Brace's critique of Diesel: "VG2 was Ch Shulune Ice Phantom of Dalamanti, handsome Dalmatian, all male but still with a look of quality. Impressed in outline & moved with power & style."

The next home bred litter from Dalamanti will be from our very special girl Jovi - Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW ShCM. We have chosen a lovely stud dog for her who we hope will compliment her and our lines well.
For more information, please see my puppies page, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Chelsea exceeded our expectations making the final round of the veteran of the year competition. We were ecstatic to say the least.
Chelsea won a big Veteran Bitch class, took Best Veteran Bitch, finishing off with BEST VETERAN IN SHOW.
Many thanks to judge Karyn Wight for a fabulous result.
Jovi won Dalmatian Open & Best of Breed and Utility Open, then went on to win another RESERVE BEST IN SHOW.
Many thanks to judge Mr David Fitzsimons for thinking so highly of our home bred girl.
We had a fabulous year at Crufts 2017 where Chelsea was Reserve (4th) in Veteran, then Jovi was placed VHC (5th) in a large Mid Limit class, then she took 2nd in Good Citizen as well. We were over the moon with the whole team.
Many thanks to judge Mr Robert Sansom for a fantastic day.
19th December 2015 - Jovi outdid her mother the year before. She attended Tweedmouth Canine Society, won both her classes, then went on to win BEST IN SHOW against some beautiful competition. Many thanks to the judge Mrs Margaret Curtis for finishing our year on such a high.
Following on from this, Jovi took RESERVE BEST IN SHOW at Ashington & District Canine Society on 13th February 16 under judge Marion Scott.
We are so proud of her achievements which is more than we could have dreamt of, especially as she is still so young.
Diesel is our one and only stud dog. He is hip scored with 'A' hips (3:3) and perfect elbows (0), and of course he is BAER hearing tested normal, from an all normal hearing litter.
His temperament is bombproof and he is passing his lovely kind nature on to his progeny.
He is available at stud to pre-approved bitches only. They must at very least be BAER hearing tested and the pedigree must be approved in advance.
For more information, please see our stud dog page.
Jovi absolutely loves doing her agility training classes. It's not just for collies!
