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 !!

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
