Hi, I have been reading this forum for a few months now, and as I have just put down a deposit on a puppy from an upcoming litter ( Due middle of September) I decided to join. This will be my first Vizsla and my first puppy, so wish me luck. I have had lots of dogs growing up but they were all rescue dogs or we took them in when they were adults. I am looking forward to the challenges of puppyhood. I also think it will be a great lesson in responsibility for my 9 yo daughter, as she can help raise and train the dog. The last dog we owned passed away 5 years ago (Australian Shepherd), so its been a while for us. My wife and I decided to get another dog about 6 months ago and where looking at a bunch of different breeds when a buddy told me about the Vizsla and how great they are as family companions. I had never heard of a Vizsla up until that point so I started my research, including reading a lot of great advice on this forum. After a lot of discussions with the Wife we decided that the Vizsla was the breed of dog for our family. So we met with a few breeders and picked the one with the parents we were most comfortable with. We are all excited, and to be honest a little nervous!. I would like to thank you all for providing great honest answers even thou it was not me asking the questions I got a lot of great advice and I'm looking forward to being able to contribute to this board in the future! I am sure I will be asking a bunch of questions in the coming weeks as I prepare for the arrival of our boy in November. Thanks again.
