Club History

The Dalmatian Club of San Diego County was founded by a group of breeders and owners interested in promoting the welfare of the breed. Many members are involved in showing their dogs in conformation, obedience, and agility competitions. Although not restricted, membership is generally representative of the San Diego County area of Southern California. DCSDC is an AKC A sanctioned club holding matches and specialty shows in San Diego County.

    The DCSDC is not aware of any rescue organizations in San Diego that specifically address the Dalmatian breed. Try http://www.savethedals.org/ as the best source that we know. 
    For those looking to acquire an older Dalmatian, we sometimes know of dogs in need of a home.

    Disaster trailer deployed to Border Fire.



     (The trailer was just recently delivered. Gene Mills spearheaded the collection drive which a number of local clubs, including the DCSDC, contributed, and the AKC, through the AKC Reunite Program, matched the amount. There are now 4 emergency response trailers in San Diego, and this one was headquartered down south. Thank you, again, everyone. This was just what the trailer was intended for.)
