I am just reading through this thread... I am so glad you Love the V breed. SO DO I!!... At 18 you would be a great master to a V if you commit your Days, and I mean 365
to running and playing with your pup. They LOVE you more than anything, and will never ever leave your side. I have owned 3 Vizsla dogs... my first was a female " Foxy" she contracted a fungal disease at 1 yr, and passed at 2 1/2... She had to run ..run..run.. about 3 times a day or she would drive me NUT's with the whining... if a v in the house is not happy ... NO-ONE in the house can be happy. "Crating is NOT an option"...
so Vizsla #2 is a Male... singleton pup "Fergy" he requires constant Play from the time he is 8 wks old, because we got him at 7wks old. I lived for throwing, hiding, running, playing, ( i used to give him cardboard boxes to chew up ... it was easy, he loved it, wore him out, and it only took me a while to clean up the mess... it was worth it.
It was a blessing I am retired because if I had not been with him 24/7 we would have never made it through puppyhood. I lost him to divorce, he is with my hubby....X hubby
Vizsla #3... I adopted a 2 1/2 yr Wirehair V in August 2017. He is The Love of my life.
Full trained, Zeke ... Hunts, does Agility, has impeccable manners, and mind's my commands ( as long as I have a treat for him) ( he is getting better with a pet)..
Long story short...
There is no way I cannot "Play" this dog every day, being a Wirehair, he does have a less demanding personality then the Smooth. But there is no way I can neglect this Dog
He MUST have his time to run, sniff, chase the ball, fetch the toy, find the toy that I hid, cuddle, cuddle, cuddle!!! Be on my lap. Sleep next to me. Rub his face under my chin, at least 50 times aday.
You are a young man and you need to think of yourself having a baby... an offspring boy or girl that is your responsibility, to teach to be an acceptable member of society..
Dex... YOu could be the perfect daddy for a V pup... I personally cannot IMAGINE my life with out my Vizslas, and as long as I have the fortitude to keep up with them I WILL... I am 67 ... 68 in May... God bless your youth
