Welcome to Brookfield Dalmatians Like many people who have a love for dogs, and specifically Dalmatians, our relationship with them started very early on. Nathan's family purchased his first Dalmatian when he was a young child, which they named 'Max', and he quickly became even more captivated with the breed from that moment on. Matthew's passion for the breed started as a child as well and he too was infatuated with them ever since. Fast forward many years later and here we are. Both of us are still hooked on the same timeless breed which we are working very hard to preserve, protect, and share with others who love Dalmatians as much as us!
Nathan has the vision behind the dogs here at Brookfield Dalmatians and is heavily involved within the pure bred dog show fancy and community. Besides their own dogs, he's handled many different breeds, at many different locations, in both Canada and across many of the states in the USA. His favourite shows to participate in are the larger ones including the famous Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York City, the impressive Royal Canin show in Orlando Florida, the breathtaking Palm Springs show in Southern California, and the list goes on. No matter if they are all breed or breed specific "National Specialities", Nathan loves to present beautiful dogs to respected judges while at the end of his show lead. He has won many incredible placements since he started to show dogs back in 2010 and has had the opportunity to work with, train, groom, and exhibit many beautiful dogs over the years.
Matthew has been around dogs his entire life as well and comes from a passion for herding breeds. With a childhood best friend, Cody his Border Collie, his love affair with four legged companions blossomed naturally. He successfully participated in competitive Fly-Ball events and took various obedience classes with his beloved Shetland Sheepdogs which is where the love for sports and performance originated. Matthew is the partner of Brookfield Dalmatians who ensures all runs smoothly, whether at home or away at dog shows, that everything is organized, packed properly and that things are where they should be - a true dog show dad. Combined as a team everything we do revolves around the dogs and we have built a beautiful life over the years with our beloved animals.
Why choose Brookfield Dalmatians for your next companion, conformation show dog, jogging buddy, canine sport, or performance athlete?
Our goal is to produce the highest calibre of quality dalmatians for a multitude of facets with their endless potential. We believe in only purposefully and selectively breeding to better the breed and always ensure each step is taken to bring out the next generation of quality Dals. For us this hobby is a labour of love, combined with detailed perfectionism, and a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears. For these reasons and many, many more are what makes us unique and sets us apart from others within the breed community. That being said, we are very thankful and fortunate to have fellow dalmatian breeder friends that also produce exceptional puppies, have quality dogs themselves, and are considered family all over the world. If we do not have anything available ourselves we are very happy to extend our helping hand to connect you with another reputable dalmatian breeder or rescue - just ask!
The Next Generation
Temperaments which are free of aggression, that are dependable and confident, curious and stable yet playful and "sucky". With reliable pedigrees, combining complimentary breedings which are free of congenital defect, with fully health tested parents, that bring out the best and healthiest puppies as possible. We abide by the DCC and DCA requirements, having our chosen stud dog(s) and dam(s) to have bilateral BAER tested hearing, their hips X-rayed with passing OFA results, and eye CERF clearances rated normal. Finally, structure, conformation, and "breed type" are also of the upmost importance for us here at Brookfield Dalmatians. These include timeless components which showcase elegance, athleticism, balance, and other distinct attributes that a quality Dalmatian should encompass. Add up that large list of ideal temperament traits, critical health requirements, and pleasing conformation characteristics, and that is what our objective is to produce and share with the world. A task we take seriously and one which is very rewarding!
