Hungarian Vizslas

Recommended Posts

I am considering a Vizsla as my first gundogs, mainly for rough shooting.

 

Wondering whether anyone could give me some advice or guidance

 

Cheers,

Those are incredible animals mate, you should be proud.

 

I'll try and find a good working line.

 

Did you have them from pups?

I tried and failed with our Viz bitch, and am now looking at finding her a nice pet home, or maybe a beating dog... I am going to stick with labs and spaniels :)

 

Gary you should be very proud you have some cracking dogs there !!

sorry to hear that mate....how was thre viz bred was it predominantly work or show lines? theres a fine line on what can be classed as dual bred or working bred im lucky the line of vizsla i keep and breed have exellent drive and ability... remember there are even labs and spaniels that fail... you cant condem a breed because of one failure.. im sorry things didnt work out mate...

Thanks gary

 

Yup I know what you mean, unfortunately there is too much show blood on her pedigree, the natural drive and instinct just isn't there, she's great as a beating dog, flushes etc, not bothered with the gun, but no hunt and point, she retrieves ok, nice soft mouth, lives in the house, would be a nice pet/beating dog for someone
