The Dalmatian is one of the most recognizable breeds, due to its characteristic white and black spotted coat. The breed is often called the firehouse dog, as the breed use to be a very popular and important member of any firehouse. The breed became even more popular after the release of the 1956 book The One Hundred and One Dalmatians and the Disney Movies that followed it. Dalmatians are very active dogs, that need lots of exercise and attention. This means that your Dalmatian will need a name that's easy to say, but still gets their attention. A name like Spot or Spots might seem to plain for some, but its a good short name that tells everyone just about everything they need to know about your dog. Whether you go with a classic name or something unique, be sure it fits your dog's active personality.
