This gentle, friendly, and family-oriented dog makes a great pet, especially for those seeking an excellent companion. As a faithful and even-tempered dog, it does well with all the family members and children. It also mingles freely with other smaller household pets and may guard them when their owner is away. When left alone, it keeps itself engaged in activities, and it does not show any signs of separation anxiety. Known for its attentive and alert disposition, the Dalmador can warn its owner of an impending threat.
When it comes to training this intelligent breed, the owners need to be more patient and persistent in their approach since results come steadily. Socialization and obedience training will help the puppies learn the basic etiquettes of a family pet. If you are not an expert hand in training a dog, you can seek professional help.
You should offer your Delmador dog a highly nutritious, balanced diet containing enough protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins. Quality commercial dog foods can be given in amounts of 3-4 cups a day. You can include dry kibble in its diet, but be sure to provide sufficient quantity of water.
