I also agree with the energy issue. I have a V that just turned 1 year old and had several others before her. She has been run off leash in a tall weed field for 1/2 to 1 hour a day since she was 8 weeks old. In the Summer when it's warm, I'll take her out just before sunrise while it's still dewy and cool. In addition to that, I also run her off my bicycle with a "Walky Dog" attachment. I let her pull me for a mile once or twice a day. She pretty much runs flat out for the first 1/2 mile at 18 MPH and the slows gradually to 14 MPH at the end. I don't pedal at all, and only brake when going around corners. This really takes the edge off of her, and it only takes 4 minutes.

You also mentioned you use a harness. That's a sure way to get pulled around by the dog. I started mine with a standard collar, and eventually used a choker collar, for a week, to get her under control. Since then, I only use a standard collar.

Tasmanian Devil!

My girl is 3 yo. We live in the country with lots of acres for running free. When Poppy first goes out in the yard she runs around in a big circle (about 50 yd diameter), passing right next to me at full throttle! We call that her “Tazzing Out”......like the Tasmanian devil. Everyday we take an ATV around the fields where she runs 1-2 miles. If we’re unable to do this (bad weather) for a day or two, she starts Tazzing in the house, as best she can. People compliment us frequently on how well-behaved she is. I always say, her breed requires a lot of exercise!

The responses to your post are excellent! I often wonder how people without the acreage to run a Vizsla cope with the basic needs of the breed.

I'm so sorry your post took this long to show on the forum. Our spamware mistook your post as spam. As soon as I saw what happened, I approved the post.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
