both dalmatian and german shepherd is a guard dog, german shepherd are fearless and tends to protect his family ,whil dalmatians are stubborn,sometimes hard to train them but german shepherds are eager to learn.
cot of pure dalmatian is around 2000rs but if not pure u can get it by 8 to 1000 rs. while german shpherd is around 8 to 1000 for male.

When you say gaurd dog - there are two types. The ones who would bark and alert you and the others are protection dog. Both would have different characteristics. GSD would fall into protection dog category.
Also both the breeds you mentioned are very very high energy dogs, as an example - Dalmations were breed to run along with Fire Carriage's - understand they have high energy and they would not get tiered even if you make them run 5-6 Kms daily.
GSD would also need daily exercise - atleast 30-40 mins walk and running. This is from my experience. I would suggest you re-think about your choice.
Based on my experience - you can choose a smaller breed to go with - Cocker Spaniel would be an ideal companion - they are intellegent and good with kids. If you have any other querry please feel free to scribble.

according to me I think a german shephard is good,coz i have seen in DOGS 101 that dalmatian is bit stubborn n needs more exercise than that of GSD.Again one more thing is due to heavy breeding the dalmatian has acquired aggressive instinct in them. You be the judge ...see your living condition, how much time you can spend in this big dogs....think about all matter and carefully choose you pup.

in this amount you can get it from Pet Shop - but these would be backward breeding, which would mean, there would be compromise on the characteristics and health. Take your decission wisely.

Hemanshu is right about being weary of puppies sold at Pet Shops. The issue is not about having show dogs. Breeders take care to breed dogs that are of great blood line. They take care to select dogs of good temperment. So it is likely to get puppies of good temperment, if you went to a breeder. If you are a first time dog owner, you might not be able to tell the temperment of a puppy that young. So going to a breeder is a better idea for you, as breeders are passionate about their breed and will help you select a good puppy.

Also, please be wise with your breed selection. Breeds like GSDs are very smart. But there is also a big issue if they are not trained correctly. Going for a slightly more calm breed like a lab might be a better option for a first time dog owner. It will be a lot more pleasant if you pick the right breed for you and the right puppy.

Also, when you are assessing your puppy, please do not assess all the puppies in the litter at the same time. Inspect each puppy in isolation. You will be able to get a much better idea of what is the right puppy for you.

I also have to point out another issue, since you mentioned that you have a budget constraint. Most of these imported breeds have several genetic health issues and you will have to be prepared for recurring high cost. Their diet requirements can be expensive too. The money you pay to buy your puppy is just the initial cost and is only a fraction of the cost you will incurr. There will be a lot more expenses coming your way. So please be prepared and well informed before you bring home a puppy. Your puppy will come home expecting you to be his world and if you had to give him up for any reason, the poor puppy will be crushed. Take a well informed decision

Atul - I understand you like to have a company of a dog, my comments were not based on anything but to make you take a concious decision. I have a KCI registered lab. but I did not thought of show or anything when I got her, it was just a passion and had payed a good amount because I wanted the pet to have true characteristics.
Think of this, you get a GSD and when it grows old you see him very voilent and other things which is not true for GSD.
Since you are a student and does not have enough earning, think 100 times before you go for any of these gaurd breeds, as Sindhoor mentioned there is expense around Food, Medicine, toys etc. these breed good amount food and vitamins etc.
Hence I suggest - wait till the time you earn enough to take care of a pet and take responsibilites - if you still insist, I would suggest to adopt a puppy - which would be free to cost, there are pupps/ dogs available at animal shelters and there are few in Delhi area.
Check this site you and you might want to give it a try.

its a Kennel Club of India registration - in which you can know the parentage of your dog and participate in dog show.
