Ever wonder how Dalmatians become associated with fire departments?

When we don’t need fire fighters to rescue us, we like to imagine their Dalmatian dogs jumping onto the engines, wagging their tails, and showing off their spots. How did these dogs become associated with firefighting?

Anyone who has had Dalmatians (or seen that movie) knows these dogs are fast, energetic, and beautiful. Back in Europe in the 1700s, wealthy people had Dalmatians run alongside their horse-drawn coaches to keep the paths clear.

When towns and cities started organizing fire departments, the fire fighters used Dalmatians for the same reason, and also to keep the horses calm near the fire. As a side benefit, the Dalmatians kept the fire stations free of rats.

Dalmatians were perfect dogs for the fire-fighting companies. They were – and are -- energetic, loyal, and have endurance. Some departments still keep Dalmatians as mascots. Not even Dalmatians can keep up with engine-powered vehicles, so any fire departments that keep a Dalmatian do so for the company, and perhaps the “gosh, that’s a cute dog” factor.
