About the DCOV

The Dalmatian Club of Victoria is an organisation whose purpose is to foster knowledge and understanding of the Dalmatian Breed. Its objectives are to encourage the responsible breeding of pure bred dalmatians, to raise the standard of our dogs, conduct exhibitions, publish information on our breed, and to promote good fellowship and sportsmanship amongst us.




Membership with the club entitles you to a monthly newsletter. The club also runs educational seminars, social functions, yearly point score competitions for conformation and obedience, and offers support to those wishing to become involved in exhibiting and breeding Dalmatians. If you are considering purchasing a dalmatian puppy, we recommend you do so through the puppy list, as breeders using this service are bound by a stringent code of ethics.
