"Ravenwood Dalmatians has over 20 years experience in the breeding, training, and exhibiting of top quality dogs in conformation, obedience, agility, public education, and therapy work. This website was developed not just to showcase our dogs but because we are very concerned about the large number of homeless Dalmatians showing up in shelters, pounds, and rescue groups and want to provide  as much information about the Dalmatian  breed as possible to educate the public BEFORE acquiring a Dalmatian. "

Dalmatian Fire safety awareness mascots in Australia - There is a group of Dalmatians in Victoria, Australia who perform for children as fire safety awareness mascots. This is a page that Maryann Augustinus did for the Dalmatian Club of Victoria about them.
"Barbara McCumisky has had a long association with the Melbourne Fire Brigade. She bred her first litter in 1985 and kept a male dally, Firechaser Phoenix, (Kitt). Barbara was curator of the Melbourne Fire Museum from 1986 to 1994 and in 1986 the Museum suggested that Kitt should ride on their trucks in a sreet procession. Sadly in 1998 Kitt 1 passed away and Denis, Kitt2 is also soon facing retirement age. Recently a new Kitt 3 has graduated to take the place of Kitt 1 and 2. Tessie (Dimadal Lady Firechaser) has proven herself to be a very worthy replacement. With her enthusiasm for the firesafety work the legend will continue for many years to come."

A little bit about us...

Imma -Alessandro Varaldo 1998

Kal -Alessandro Varaldo 1998

We love chow time!

and bet you do too!

o "Jimmy Rhys" - ("Gwynmor Mr. Jim Dandy" !)
Oh, boy! A new puppy joined our family in March 2000! We call him "Jimmy Rhys" - after his breeder Rhys Morgans - and "Jimmy Rhys" sounds like a good ol' Southern name too! ('Rhys' sounds like 'reese'). ...
AND...Hey, Kathy McCoubrey (
Ravenwood Dalmatians) gave us the basic clicker training lessons by e-mail for Jimmy !!!! WOW! - marvelous results!!!!

o Mickey (Dorka Van Huis Dalmatho) (the link to her photo works now!)
Mickey was born on January 24th, 1988. She's a black spotted Dal and weighs about 28 kilos. She's trim and energetic and just loves to run next to the bike. Her favorite spot is at our other house in the woods! Sometimes we call her "Tricky" because she can do things like wrap herself in a blanket quicker than you can wink!. She smiles a lot -especially if there's food around! She misses Toby - he was her best friend - She eats a bisquit in his honor every day now. - Toby, the happy go lucky dog that he was hoped that all his Dal pals would once in a while eat a bisquit as a toast to his memory !

o Djohno (Ch. Djohn Deere of Dalbury's Clan, JW&W'92)
Djohno has come to live with us (Jan.'97) and be Mickey's new pal. He was born in Oct.'91. Djohno is one of the sweetest and lovable Dals we've ever known. He loves running next to the bike with Peggy, and has built up lots of muscle doing that - we call him "Djohno Schwarzenegger" now !!!!

o Hi - I'm Nikita, (Toby's) Mickey's and Djohno's Russian Blue cat (the link to his photo is new!)
Just like dogs to forget to mention me, the cat! I go on walks with them - I guess they're too far out in Cyberspace wagging their own tails to think about things like that! Meow, meow!

o Toby (Efkes Valentine Van Huis Dalmatho) 14 feb.'84 - 7 nov.'96
Toby was born on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14th, 1984. Both he and Mickey were bred by Mevr. A. Huisman-Vos here in the Netherlands, where they were born. Toby, a liver spotted Dal, was 63 cm. at the withers*, and weighed 30 kgs, was strong, brave, and masterful! Before getting rather old, he loved to trot along next to the bike. Finding food was a favorite hobby but he wasn't fat. (*Dals here are bigger than American Dals! - and some Champions are, too!). ....
P.S. (Toby had a "birthday brother", Domino, in Australia - Domino was born on 14 Feb. '84, too.)

**Toby in Dog Heaven **
Efkes Valentine van Huis Dalmatho
Toby foto
14 februari 1984 - 7 november 1996
Our vet came on 7 November and put Toby to sleep. It was good for Toby that he was happy in his own home. We went for a nice short walk - he could not walk far, but enjoyed the fresh air with me, Peggy and Mickey. When we got home he got a nice rawhide stick and a cookie before Dr. Kleinjan got here. Mickey laid down next to him the whole time. Toby thought it was just another day and dozed off for his afternoon nap as usual.
We miss him very much. We will put his ashes under "his" rhododendron in the country - he always loved to lay in the shadow of its leaves in the summertime. He had a good life.
He was a loving and brave dog up to the very end. Now he's in dog heaven with Pieter, Suzy, and Sheba Dalmatians and all of his many dog friends now passed.
Toby's memory also will live on in cyberspace with this, his, Dalmatian www page - the title will not change...
