Get to know the Vizsla
All you need to know about the breed
Originally bred in the Middle Ages in Hungary as hunting dogs, gentle and intelligent Vizslas thrive on human companionship – the close bond that developed between these working dogs and their early owners has certainly stood the test of time.
Modern-day Vizslas make the perfect companion for active and energetic dog owners looking for the same qualities in their canine. Once trained, Vizslas get on well with other dogs and with children, although like any other dog they shouldn’t be left without supervision.
Vizslas enjoy a mission: these people-pleasers usually enjoy obedience training as well as games of fetch or jogging with their owners (once they’re old enough that their joints are mature and won’t be harmed by it). All of these activities will contribute to the exercise the Vizsla needs to stay healthy and content.
When they’re not running, jumping, chasing, swimming, tracking, fetching … you get the point … these flame-haired beauties just want to be near you, their humans, preferably at all times. And, actually, not just near you, but actually leaning up against you if you don’t mind? Trust us, you won’t. The flip side of that closeness is that Vizslas do not get on well if they are left alone for too long – barking or chewing (of non-chewable items) may result.
