East Coast breeder recommendations?

I am new to this forum and am not sure if this is the right place to post this question but here goes nothing....


We have no plans to show or hunt over our (future) vizsla. Does anyone have a good breeder recommendation? Preferably on the East coast and who would be willing to sell to a non-show home?

East coast covers a bunch of ground. Where are you more exactly?

Re: East Coast breeder recommendations?

Thank you Bob Engelhardt. I checked out their website and unfortunately it said they have no breeding plans at this time.

Is anyone familiar with Teals Vizslas in IL???

Re: East Coast breeder recommendations?

If you don't get a response here ask the breeder referral person at your local club. Here's the link http://www.cvcweb.org/breeder_referral.html


I'll be up your way at the end of March for a hunt test. You're more than welcome to come out and meet the breed even if you have no desire to hunt. I went to one when I was researching the breed and enjoyed seeing them in the field so much that I'm now raising quail in the backyard and just got my hunting license yesterday. It's a bit of an addiction. If you're interested, I can give you more info.

Re: East Coast breeder recommendations?

Thank you, Einspanner. I appreciate the offer. That is pretty exciting that have found a new passion (especially since it's one you can share with your V).

I appreciate what you mean Organicthoughts. I have met a few vizslas and a litter. I would love to make it out to a show soon when possible. I have spoken with several breeders. The problem I am running into is that most of the breeders I have spoken with prefer performance homes for their vizslas and we have no plans to show or compete with our vizsla (other than possibly dock dogs). We do have plans to be very active with our future love but it is hard to find a reputable breeder that doesn't mind us not showing their dog. I was hoping this forum would be helpful in this respect since everyone on here is so knowledgable about the breed. I do not have any interest in buying online but have found myself feeling discouraged as of late which is why I decided to come here for help. I was also hoping to find some references on here that are not given to me BY the actual breeder himself. It seems they would have more merit than a self-referral.

BTW - I have contacted the CVC breeder referral contact and am waiting to hear back.

Re: East Coast breeder recommendations?

I am going to be a bit irrelevant and post the site of a UK breeder see http://hungarianvizsla.org.uk/home.htm . I didn't get my puppy from them in the end but found their information very useful in terms of what to look for (breeding co-efficients etc). Bit of a long way from Illinois ...
