JLS Dogs In Motion

Dalmatian Gait - The gait of a Dalmatian should be sound and balanced, effortless and efficient with purposeful reach and drive with no leg interference and good foot fall timing. Dalmatians were bred for endurance trotting so a Dalmatian that is true to "Dalmatian type" should be able to trot all day long with a minimum of effort. There is nothing more beautiful than a correct moving Dalmatian flowing efficiently with long ground covering strides around the show ring or in your backyard!

Here is a link to a site that shows lameness in dogs normal gaiting patterns: Canine Lameness Learning Module

Pictured below are movement shots of Dalmatians of JLS breeding or those produced by our stud dogs.
JLS Black Dalia

Dalia movement pictured at 11 months old.

Dalia at 12 months of age. Nice, clean, balanced reach and drive and kick! The correct head carriage is so it is level with topline, but she was pulling. This head carriage is commonly seen in the show ring but the head dropped level for the most efficient movement is proper "coaching" position for a Dalmatian. Still a nice photo of her movement overall.
