Welcome to Schunikka Dalmatians

There is never a dull moment in our household with dalmatians demanding attention and we wouldn't want it any other way.


Please select the links above to find out more about us, the spotty dogs we share our lives with and some of their friends.

The Gallery link will take you to our photograph albums which we update regularly.

The Blog link will take you to some stories, usually with Videos, that tell the story of some of our adventures.

We would love to hear from you so if you have time then sign our guest book, which can be found on the Contacts page.


We are based in the Forest of Dean and enjoy spending time with our dogs, who are family pets first and foremost. John is a keen cyclist and enjoys riding with the dogs on a 'Springer', and has competed in CaniX events with the dogs. Josi's hobbies are all based around the dogs, whether it be walking them, in the show ring, obedience, agility training, or working the Dalmatians behind a horse and carriage. Josi is also a student member of the Kennel Club's Accredited Instructor Scheme (KCAI). More information on the KCAI scheme & its Code of Ethics for its members can be found on the KC website.


We are both members of the British Dalmatian Club and British Carriage Dog Society. Josi is also a member of the North of England Dalmatian Club and the Dalmatian Club of Scotland, as well as serving on the committees of the British Dalmatian Welfare and the British Carriage Dog Society.
