ALPHA N OMEGA DALMATIANS
HISTORY :

 

Founded, in 1989 in beautiful East Granby, Connecticut, when a kid in elementary school wanted a  dog that would get along with the family’s cats, chickens, peacocks, swans, ducks, pheasants, other dogs and kids.
A dalmatian was chosen and a breeding show female puppy named Omega was purchased from:
Sharon Lyons of Erin's Dals.

The family has been in love with Dalmatians ever since.
The first dalmatian, Omega was best friends with the family’s other dog an English Setter named Alpha…

hence the name: Alpha N Omega Dalmatians.

Omega was the foundation breeding female for all Alpha N Omega Dalmatians and all future Dalmatians from Alpha N Omega Dalmatians can be traced back to Omega.
Member of the Greater New York Dalmatian Club and

Member of Dalmatian Club of America.
Alpha N Omega Dalmatians is an off-shoot kennel of Erin's Dals:

Responsible Breeding

Breed To Improve:

(From AKC)


 

The motto of the responsible breeder of purebred dogs is

"BREED TO IMPROVE."

 

Every dog is the best dog in the world to its owner. Responsible breeders, however, know to avoid "KENNEL BLINDNESS"

 

Alpha N Omega Dalmatians we show exhibit our Dalmatians against other top Dalmatians so that we guard against “KENNEL BLINDNESS”

 

 

in other words, we take a step back and honestly evaluate the good and bad points of our Dalmatians before making the decision to breed.

 

The goal of breeding, after all, is to produce a better dog and a quality pet; We examine our Dalmatians carefully. Recognize their flaws, look for a mate that will eliminate or balance those flaws.

When selecting a breeding pair, there is a simple principle we bear in mind: mate animals that complement one another.

 

Choosing Dalmatians whose bloodlines will strengthen weaknesses and emphasize good qualities.

Of course, practicing this common sense maxim can be very complex because you must weigh all the factors that contribute to the Dalamatian's traits and appearances.

 

This is an area where research and the advice and experience of other breeders are invaluable source of information and where we work with our Co-Breeder, Sharon Lyons of  Erin's Dalmatians.

 

Two vital factors we keep in mind as we make our selections are temperament and health.

 

Temperament is a hereditary trait in ALL dogs, although it can be influenced by other external factors.

Selection over many generations eventually produced dog breeds with the correct temperament to pull sleds, follow scent on trails, or retrieve game. The inheritance factors of temperament are complex.

 

However, we never breed a Dalmatian with a questionable temperament.

 

As far as health goes, we are aware that Dalmatians, like ALL dogs, are subject to many hereditary defects, some of which are potentially crippling or fatal.

Our goal is to produce Dalmatians that are not affected by the major known hereditary diseases occurring in our wonderful breed.

Know Genetics:

(From AKC)

 

To be an effective breeder, you should have a basic understanding of the science of genetics. Everything about your prospective puppies' health, soundness, looks, and temperament will be determined by the genes passed on by their parents, and by their parents before them.

 

Therefore, the selection of the  mating pairs should not be made solely on the basis of the dog's or bitch's looks

(or temperament or soundness, etc.), but should be based on an understanding of how the animal's genes contributed to its looks and of how those genes are passed on and expressed.

 

That is why it is essential for us to  study the pedigrees of our mating pairs of Dalmatians.

The more knowledge we have as we make our selection, the more likely we are to produce a litter with the qualities we desire.

 

We are and have to be well-versed in the genetic problems that affect the Dalmatian breed.

 

Genetic defects can occur in any breed and can affect any system in the body. Some genetic diseases may occur in many breeds; others occur in only one or a few breeds.

 

The following is a brief explanation of how genetic defects may be inherited and expressed.

 

  • Diseases that follow a dominant pattern of inheritance need only one abnormal gene. That is, if only one parent is affected, the condition will show up in each successive generation. Some individuals may be only mildly affected with the condition, making it difficult to detect. In such cases, the condition can mistakenly be thought to skip generations.

 

  • Diseases that follow a recessive pattern of inheritance occur in homozygous individuals, meaning dogs with two abnormal genes. Dogs with one mutant and one normal gene are heterozygous, and they are carriers of the condition.  They appear normal but can pass their gene to their offspring. Recessive mutant genes can be passed through many generations before emerging in the offspring of two dogs that carry the same genetic mutation.                                        

 

  • Polygenic disorders result from the cumulative action of a number of different genes. The exact number of genes involved and their individual functions are difficult to determine, and the pattern of inheritance tends to vary from family to family.

 

                                                                                   

  • Polygenic inheritance can sometimes mimic either dominant or recessive inheritance, and this feature may lead to erroneous conclusions regarding the type of underlying genetic abnormality.

 

 

  • Chromosomal anomalies: Defects in chromosome number and structure; can also cause genetic diseases. Dogs normally have 39 pairs of chromosomes on which genes  are located. Major abnormalities in chromosome number and structure can produce serious defects.
