Overview
The Vizsla is classified as a rare breed. They originated in Hungary in the 8th century as a hunting dog, although owning this breed was a symbol of aristocracy. They were nearly extinct after WWII. The Vizsla was revived by the Hungarians who smuggled their beloved breed out of the country for fear of them being desecrated.
Character
The Vizsla is a versatile gun dog that is able to work in the forest, field, and water. They excel in retrieving, and are capable of covering difficult terrain in extreme weather conditions. The Vizsla has an easygoing nature and is an excellent companion.
Temperament
The Vizsla is friendly, lively, and affectionate with their family and those they know. They are alert and watchful. They will bark when they sense danger or visitors. They are very reserved with strangers. The Vizsla is very demonstrative, but has a tendency to be willful and distracted. They get along well with older children and in most cases other dogs. They will tolerate cats they are raised with. The Vizsla loves to chew on anything and everything and is not a calm and placid breed. They will become destructive if they are allowed to be bored.
Care
The Vizsla's coat requires very minimal care. They need to be brushed occasionally with a firm bristle brush and dry shampooed when necessary. Bathing should only be done with a mild soap so as not to strip the coat the protective oils. It is important to keep their nails trimmed. The Vizsla is generally healthy, but has a tendency toward hemophilia and hip dysplasia. They do not tolerate cold climates.
Coat
The Vizsla breed comes in two coat varieties: the Smooth and Wire. The Smooth is short, dense, close to the body, and shiny. There is no undercoat. The Wire is hard, harsh, and loose fitting. There is no gloss or shine. There is a winter under-coat and the hair is brush-like on the back of the forelegs, head, muzzle, and ears. The Vizsla coat colors range from golden to russet. They are average shedders.
Training
The Vizsla needs both socialization and obedience training at an early age. Owners of this breed must make their authority clear right from the start. They are eager to please and quick to learn. The Vizsla displays their talents in the areas of tracking, pointing, retrieving, and competitive obedience. Harsh methods of training will ruin this breed. They need firm, fair, and consistent training.
Activity
The Vizsla is an extremely active breed that requires strenuous activity daily. They thrive in a large fenced area or a leashed jog with their owner. They also require mental stimulation, such as play sessions with their family to ensure their happiness. They are not recommended for apartment dwelling due to their enormous stamina.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Vizsla puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Should I get a Vizsla? Should I get a Vizsla? I am a current Dental Hygiene student and will be graduating in the spring of 2016. I am considering getting a vizsla pup next summer. I am attracted to the breed because of their known energy and affection. I last had a GSP, and loved him but he was a bit stubborn and didnt like sticking around when going outdoors. I've read that Vizslas stay closer to you more-so when taking them out. For the first year of its life, I will be enrolled in school, but figure I have more breaks to Run / train her than I would with a full-time job. I live in a small home with a yard, located next to public lands where I could run her. My main purpose of getting one of these is having a loyal outdoor partner for long hikes and running, that is loving and able to train for duck hunting. Thoughts? Suggestions on exercising / training?

As long as you have the funds to be able to support/take care of a pup and have enough time to take care of the pup, then go for it. The Vizsla breed is a great companion animal and really attach to one owner compaired to a whole family. However, using a long-lead in the beginning of your pups life with you while you are out will help teach him/her to stay closer to you. As well as spaying/neutering your pup anywhere between 6 -8 months will keep him/her from wanting to wander.

As for exercise, the Vizsla breed needs about two hours of exercise a day for an adult dog. An hour in the morning and an hour at night. However, pups will only need 45 minutes of exercise a day and it can increase as the pip grows older. The Vizsla breed is very sensitive to its owner's voice and body language so contacting a Positive Reinforcement trainer in your area is the best thing to do. Going through puppy-socializing classes and positive reinforcement training classes will give you the tools to train your puppy.

The only way to know if your dog is a pure-bred or what breeds make up your dog is to have your dog DNA tested. You can buy them online or at your vet for an average cost of $45.00 - $85.00.

It sounds like your pup has an allergy. A grain-free, high quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go!

What breeds make up a vizsla

They are thought to have descended from several types of pointers along with the Transylvanian Hound and the Turkish yellow dog (now extinct). "Vizsla" means "pointer" in Hungarian.

What is the life expectancy of the Vizsla?

I am a Vizsla owner my dog is now 7. In our adventures we have run into other Vizsla owners where there's are going on 13 and 15 years of age. In reading on the breed we had found the longest life span was 17 years. The life of any dog would mainly have to work with the owner in the care and love for there pet. Hopefully this helped you.

The previous owners said he was potty trained, but had a few "excitement accidents." Well a few is every time he comes out of his kennel, he plays, we talk to him or pay him attention. He is a great dog, but this peeing issue is out of control. We have been to the vet and they found a little blood in his urine with a few white blood cells, so he has been on a round of antibotics and he is still have this problem. Any advise?

My best advice is to lower any excitement when the peeing inside occurs. Simply stop what you are doing and take your vizsla out so he can do his business. Praise lavishly when he's finished so he knows outside is the proper place to eliminate. Are you on a firm schedule? Are you using the same door for every time he goes out? Remember a puppy can't truly control his bladder fully until he's six months. He should be going out every 2-3 hours if possible.

Will a Vizsla attack strangers ?

2 Comments

Anonymous

I have a 7 year old male Vizsla, who I have had since he was a puppy. He barks at strangers, but he has never ever attacked anyone. He is actually a bit of a baby, but he's got a ferocious bark, which would intimidate any attempted burglar in our home. He is great with children, VERY vocal, VERY much a lap dog and a lover. I highly recommend them but they need to be excercised daily as they can become a bit "needy" if they get bored. We go for 3 miles jogs together 3 days a week.

My Vizsla per say has never attacked anyone but there are some that he will not let near my family. He will bark and let you know not to trust them. Other than that he is very loveable.

The Vizsla breed is an upland bird dog they are not meant for protection. There instinct is to hunt and point out potential kills for animals that you are hunting other than that no they are not meant as a guard dog.

Vizsla's are excellent watchdogs, but should not be used for it, they are family indoor dogs first. Our male would attack anyone entering the yard after dark and always checked who was coming in the house. Don't expect this of all of them as our female will sleep at night unless she senses something to chase.

My Vizsla is 7 years old and I have been kittin sitting and he absolutley loves her and she likes him. At first he took her of course as a chew toy we would find her with slobber all over her but he never hurt her. We taught him to have a soft mouth so he won't hurt animals that he catches he just brings them back to us alive and nasty with slobber. He doesn't like other male dogs that have not been neuterd though he will fight with them over dominance of his area whether it is there land or not. I would actually take your dog to see what cat or kitten you want and let him help you decide on whether or not he likes them. You will be able to tell with the way he will act around them if it is a good idea or not.
