We have been involved in showing, exhibiting and breeding strictly Dalmatians since 1991.
HatTrick Dalmatians have been top winners at some of the most prestigious dogs shows in the United States and have appeared on David Letterman, and as the mascot for the MLS Chicago Fire Soccer Team, on ESPN, ABC Sports, HD Net and others including "Bozo's Circus". Over the years, we have been on radio programs, been in documentaries, on the local news, in local parades. We've even handled dogs for others at Cruft's in the United Kingdom and at the St. Patrick's Day dog show in Dublin, Ireland.
Over the years, we have placed pet & show puppies from coast to coast, as well as, in Canada. Our puppies do not just go to new homes, many of the new owners also become part of our extended family. We have had wonderful people come into our lives as a result of our dog hobby. Many of our dogs have won awards at the Dalmatian Club of America National Specialty, as well as numerous regional specialties. We are or have been members of: The Dalmatian Club of America, The Chicagoland Dalmatian Club, IL Dog Breeders Association, Park Shore All Breed Kennel Club and the British Dalmtian Club. We keep current on all Dalmatian and dog related issues by attending seminars/lectures, events, shows and by active participation in the breed. For all owners of HatTrick Dalmatians, we are available to answer questions, day or night. This extends throughout the life of the Dal. Our dog show "travels" have taken us to all parts of the US, Canada and Europe. We enjoy traveling to all parts of the world to see dog shows and learn more about our breed and dogs in general.
Many new owners find HatTrick puppies very intelligent and quick to learn. This is due to a variety of things we do early on in the puppy's life. Many of our puppies have been involved in performance events (agility, tracking, obedience, road trials, etc.).
HatTrick puppies are weaned and raised an a diet consisting of a RAW food diet. Since puppies bones, tissues, muscles, skin and organs can only be grown once, we believe in providing them the best start. We encourage but, do not require that new owners feed or incorporate a raw or a partially raw regimen into their Dalmatians diet. We find that dogs that are feed the best foods will grow up to be healthly and happy pets. Our website is geared at helping people understand the Dalmatian and dogs in general. Enjoy!
