My Mission

     At Paradise Spots Dalmatians LLC, our focus is on producing healthy Dalmatians with sound temperaments. We strive to raise dogs that are well socialized and well mannered family companions. We give our puppies the best start possible by raising them using puppy culture methods and we potty train using a variation of the Misty Method. At Paradise Spots Dalmatians LLC, we strive to produce puppies with the LUA (normal uric acid) gene. We are proud to raise both shortcoat and longcoat AKC registered LUA Dalmatians. Though having long hair still currently disqualifies a Dalmatian from competing in conformation shows, it is my hope and my dream to one day see them accepted into the AKC breed standard as they are a naturally occurring coat variation that has historically been a part of the Dalmatian breed for at least 100 years.

Visiting

We welcome visits and, if possible, we encourage you to come meet the puppies in person before choosing one! For our safety though, we do require that all visitors submit an application prior to their visit. For the protection of our puppies (who have incomplete immunity to deadly and highly contagious diseases like the parvovirus), we do not allow visits until after the puppies have had their first set of shots, at 6 weeks of age. This is also for the comfort of our girls, who do not always feel comfortable with strangers touching their babies while they are younger.

Puppy Cost (no breeding) *for puppies whose deposits are received after 1/22/2022*

Our puppies start at $2100 (plus 6.475% sales tax). However, we will sometimes have puppies with a reduced price of $1500-$1800. Price reductions may be influenced by factors such as genetics (like HUA), very light or heavy spot patterns, unilateral (partial) hearing status, etc. 

 

​​BREEDING RIGHTS POLICY ~*Breeding Rights will be $2400 ($2555 with tax)*~​

I typically only offer homozygous LUA puppies to breeding homes. I do not have any plans to sell any of my homozygous lua longcoat females (though I may occasionally have a male available).  I will not sell breeding rights to just anyone. I will only sell breeding rights to HONEST and DRAMA FREE individuals committed to responsible breeding practices. OFA health testing and CHIC # must be obtained PRIOR to the dog being bred. I will not sell my puppies to new, first time breeders UNLESS you can demonstrate that you have done ample research and are prepared to handle the responsibility of breeding dogs. I will only sell to existing breeders that BAER test all of their puppies, offer good support to the owners of their puppies and provide high quality care to their breeding dogs and puppies. You must be prepared to send me pictures of your setup and show me the kind of life my puppy will have with you. You must agree to keep the dog for its entire life, or work with me to place the dog in a quality, loving pet home after retirement. All progeny of any Paradise Spots Dalmatian dog must be BAER tested, regardless of the distance the breeder must travel.
