CCDalmatains are very excited to announce that Australian Champion CCDals Calvin Klein Iconic Fame is the first Dalmatian in the state of Victoria in history to gain the title of  “Junior Courser” after successfully completing two lure courses on the 25th of June 2017.

The purpose of a Lure Coursing event as stated on the Australian National Kennel Club (ANKC) website; is to preserve and develop coursing skills. Lure Coursing is an artificial simulation of the way a hare might run in the open field, with the course pattern being irregular and varied with every meet. The lure is strips of plastic bags tied to a nylon cord which is pulled around on pulleys by a battery operated motor. A normal course is between 650 metres to 800 or 900 metres long; however course lengths can vary dependent on field conditions on the day.


The objective is to test a dog’s ability to course without showing signs of undue stress or lack of fitness. Coursing places a considerable amount of load on many aspects on a dog’s physical structure and  temperament characteristics. The sport is a test as to the physical capabilities of the dog. The dog must completed the course with enthusiasm and without interruption”.

Australian Champion CCDals Calvin Klein Iconic Fame JC (Calvin) was bred by CCDalmatians and is owned, trained and shown by Sophie and Anthony Awdesho Gallo.

CCDalmatains is exceptionally proud of Calvin that not only exhibits classical beauty for the show ring but amazing endurance, stamina and has a brilliant physical physique.
