Vizsla - Guide to Vizslas

Description: The Vizsla is a handsome, medium sized, muscular and lean hunting dog with a short golden rust coat. The breed originated in Hungary and the earliest known references are found in art work dating from the tenth century. Vizslas were only owned by nobleman who apparently were committed to keeping this breed pure. These efficient dogs were used for many purposes which included pointing and retrieving as well as hunting small and large game.

The number of Vizslas like so many other breeds suffered greatly during World War II. There were never many Vizlsas to begin with because they were limited only to aristocracy, however, enough were smuggled out of Hungary to save the breed.

Vizlas are eager to please, but they are also sensitive, therefore harsh training methods should never be used. Both training and socialization are necessary and should start at a young age. Vizlas thrive on human companionship and should never be left alone for long periods of time. They are nicknamed Velcro Dogs for a reason - they want to be with you and will follow you everywhere you go. Vizlsas have a ton of energy and need daily exercise. Running, long walks and playing fetch are all great for your Vizsla's physical and mental well being. If this breed is not sufficiently exercised every day, they will become bored and find other and often destructive ways keep busy.
