Dalmatian Breeders For Health & Temperament First  
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 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.
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.
The love and loyalty these dogs give you in return for their needs, for an experienced owner, is priceless.

So, who am I?


My name is Lisa Barrett,
owner & breeder of Dalamanti Dalmatians.
I have been a Dalmatian owner, breeder and exhibitor since 2000
and have loved them all my life.
First and foremost they are my much loved pets.
I am a proud member of the British Dalmatian Club,
North of England Dalmatian Club, and the Dalmatian Club of Scotland.
My dogs are BAER hearing tested normal and my puppies are
also hearing tested before being homed.
I am currently owned by 4 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 (Diesel) and our new addition, daughter of Chelsea and Diesel, Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW ShCM (Jovi).

The next home bred litter from Dalamanti (our first litter in 3 1/2 years) 

will be from our youngest 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 perfectly.

For more information, please see my puppies page,

(Perdita's Right As Rain At Caldecacre X CH Lady Of Light From Shulune)
Diesel is our one and only stud dog. He is hip scored with
'A' hips (3:3) and perfect elbows (0) 
and of course 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.

Many thanks to judge Mr David Fitzsimons for thinking so 
highly of our home bred girl. 

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.  


2015 - Chelsea (Marricdale The Gold Digger of Dalamanti ShCM) had an amazing year. She has taken Best Veteran In Breed at SKC CH Show, Blackpool CH Show & Paignton CH Show, and has also won Best Veteran In Show at South West Durham. She also took 2nd in Open Bitch at Paignton which earned her stud book number, at last!

We are delighted how well she is looking and is still loving the ring

at the age of almost 8 years old.



20th December 2014, Tweedmouth Canine Society, our last show of the year. Marricdale The Gold Digger of Dalamanti ShCM aged 7 years & 2 months, won a big AV Veteran class, took Best Veteran in Show and pulled out all the stops to take Reserve Best in Show overall. We are so proud of her, and her daughter Dalamanti Ice Ruby JW was 2nd in her Junior class and won her other 2 classes with some lovely dogs. Many thanks to judge Miss K Bird for thinking so highly of my girls.


Dalamanti Ice Ruby (Jovi) has already exceeded our expectations.

At just a day short of 9 months old, she wins Minor Puppy Bitch,

Maiden Bitch, Best Puppy Bitch and BEST PUPPY IN SHOW

at the Dalmatian Club of Scotland Championship Show.
Not only does the 1st in Minor Puppy qualify her for Crufts 2015,
but winning BPIS means she has qualified for The Dalmatian
Of The Year Puppy Competition to be held in early 2015.
Many thanks to breed specialist judge Mr Alan Cuthbertson
for thinking so highly of her to give her this amazing win.
This is truly a day we will never forget.


Jovi has since gained her final points for her Junior Warrant,

so we are delighted that she now has her stud book number

hence qualifying for Crufts for life.
