About the Breed
This amazing breed really does live up to its adopted name, the ‘Versatile Vizsla’. With an endearing temperament, convenient size and striking looks, the gorgeous Vizsla makes an outstanding companion for individuals and families.
Hungarian Vizsla dogs are medium sized Hunt Point Retrieve (HPT) gundogs and one of the smaller HPT gundog breeds. Vizslas are short coated hunting dogs of distinguished appearance. They are rather lightly built but robust. Their coat is an attractive solid golden rust colour. This is a dog of power and drive in the field yet a tractable and affectionate companion in the home.
Vizslas are lively and intelligent, obedient but sensitive, very affectionate and easily trained. They were bred for hunting, for fur and feather on open ground or in thick cover, pointing and retrieving from both land and water.
This breed is a pleasure to own if his temperament suits you, and yours suit him.
Vizslas need to be part of your life and your world.
About the Breeder / Kennel
My wife and myself live on a 4 acre property outside Dunedin, in the south island of New Zealand. Our 'family' includes our much loved Hungarian Vizsla dogs who have several friendly companions on the lifestyle property including some sheep, chickens and cats.
We both grew up in families who enjoyed the companionship of dogs and always had family pets. I grew up on a large sheep farm in Southland, have always been a keen hunter and enjoy various countryside persuits. I have always had an interest in working, training and breeding pedigree dogs.
After several years of careful pedigree research, we decided to become Vizsla owners and breeders since we believe them to be truly extraordinary and beautiful pets, wonderful with children and make great hunting and retrieving dogs.
We are fully registered members of the New Zealand Kennel Club (NZKC) and and we maintain the highest of breeding standards to breed 'true to type' Vizslas with a sound nature, good construction and health, with the natural working ability true to the breed. We fully adhere to the Hungarian Vizsla Society (HVS) Code of Ethics.
All our dogs used for breeding are hip scored and we feed our dogs and puppies the best dry pet food available - Orijen.
