Looking for training information for Dalmatians

I recently brought an adult Dalmatian into my home, and am seeking apppropriate training information for him. I would like to teach the basics, 'heal', 'sit', 'stop', 'come', and would like to feel comfortable giving him run of the house along with my two other dogs and 4 cats. He seems to be making some progress in this regard already, not a week yet, and seems quite good with the dogs, just a bit aggresive towards the cats. I would like to train him in a manner appropriate to Dalmatians, and any suggestions from Dalmatian owners are especially appriciated. He really oves toys!

Dalmatians are dogs like any other when it comes to training, and I suggest a good obedience school. Dals are usually high energy and need lots of exercise. Since your dog is showing aggression towards your cats, I would never leave him alone with them loose in the house.

For all other things Dalmatian, here is a link I'm sure you'll enjoy!
