Top ten fastest dogs. So how fast is a Vizsla and where did it rank in the top 10 fastest dogs?
This medium sized gundog is an intelligent and easy to train hunting dog. They need plenty of exercise (at least two hours per day) and thrive on games and stimulation. They are sometimes called the ‘Velcro Vizsla’ as they were bred to be close-ranging hunting dogs, never straying too far from their masters, but rather sticking close – like Velcro! Vizslas have been used as sniffer-dogs and security dogs with great success and they also make excellent pets for families. They like to stay in contact with their family, often following people from room to room, and becoming upset when left alone at home for long periods of time so do not get a Vizsla if the animal will be home alone for long hours every day
Good list. We're off once again to the hills to let my "red streaks" run with abandon.
I thought the vizsla was second only to the greyhound for speed, but the vizsla has more stamina. Ester usually outruns any dog she meets, and if they do happen to be faster, she runs for longer! Everyone who meets her says how fast she is, except other vizsla owners of course. I agree with the other comments about the speed of turning/changing direction. Here in the uk we would say she can turn on a sixpence!
That's got to be one of the best descriptions of the vizsla I've seen on these top ten list things. Needs lots of exercise ✓, close-ranging hunting dog ✓, velcro so can't be left alone long periods ✓. Someone did their research and isn't using marketing language to sell the breed. YAY!

A little bit of a broad statement.
Just today in the field my husband was calling for me to jump in the UTV, and drive down to where he was.
He had let Lucy out to stretch her legs.
Her range always freaks him out when I'm not right there.
She was tearing up the ground around 250 yards out.
Silly little red dog, thought she could catch snipe in the rice fields.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
