New dog owners here! We bought our Vizsla, Sage, after much research into the best dog for us. My husband has pet allergies, so it was always "no indoor pets" for us. But we decided maybe we could get one that is low shedding. I have always wanted a dog to run with, so combining the two desires, we came to a Vizsla. It was a technically a present to my youngest child who is eight, but with a family of 8, she gets lots of attention. We also found when said 8yo climbed a tree to get away from her biting at his pant leg, that she definitely could not be only his responsibility.
So we got her at 8 weeks a few days before Christmas. She is now 13 weeks. I've attached three pics from her first week with us and one of her in her bed this week to show how she's grown. I had no idea how fast she would grow!
Walking was initially a chore, and we stuck with play in the back yard. It has gotten better the last week or so, and I have gotten her to jog around the block about three times now. Plan to keep it to short jogs just to get her familiar until she is one year like I've read. But jogging with her is much easier than walking! Not so much sniffing around and redirecting her.
We have only owned a dog one other time many years ago, but it was an outdoor dog and we were in the country. So this has been a big adjustment for us. We have six kids who chip in with taking her out and getting up at night to let her out, or I might have given up by now. We homeschool, so no issues with separation anxiety.
