Recommended Vizsla Breeders in Northeast

I am interested in adopting a vizsla puppy, but because I live in NYC, I am trying to find a breeder who breeds more for temperament and pet qualities rather than hunt/show. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a breeder, as most of the ones we have spoken with tend to breed for hunting qualities and dogs with strong prey drives.

Are you prepared to look outside of the U.S.?
Our breeder ships her puppies to you. She also brings in breeding stock from all over the globe. Dharma is not a hunter or a show dog. She is a member of our family. She is well bred and our breeder pays attention to the details.

Live, Love, Laugh.... Dharma you have helped me to do just that. Born on May 24, 2013

Re: Recommended Vizsla Breeders in Northeast

I recommend to check out the following clubs on facebook or look up their websites:

1. Connecticut Valley Vizsla Club
2. Vizsla Club of Central New England
3. Vizsla Club of Greater New York

Get in touch directly with breeders and communicate what you are looking for in a puppy. Responsible breeders do temperament testing and match puppies with requirements of potential buyers, be it hunting/field, conformation or pet.

Re: Recommended Vizsla Breeders in Northeast

I just wonder why bother getting a high energy hunting dog if you don't want one with hunting traits.

Even the most timid "pet" quality vizsla is still a high drive bird dog at heart.

A Vizsla is truly a dog to be proud of owning, and he is forgiving in case, in a moment of forgetfulness, you call him a dog -- he is a Vizsla."

They are extremely friendly, smart, obedient, trainable, and affectionate. Each of those traits are extremely desirable in a dog, and not dependent on the dog's hunting prowess.

Vizslas adapt very well. I know there are several vizslas in NYC doing well (live in apartment and some don't hunt at all). Some are even therapy dogs.

And they (in general) are ALSO extremely athletic, driven, and energetic. I hope one looks at the entire picture of the breed vs. select attributes one finds endearing. True, there are many Vizslas that live well in cities and have adapted - or moreso their OWNERS have adapted to a high ener-gy dog in the city and works diligently to find outlets for that energy. We also hear and have seen many, many Vizslas that have found homes in high-rise living that did not do well in those environs. Please go in with eyes open to all aspects of this breed. They are not a beginner dog.

I do agree with Ken for the best part of his post. I do however fall into the catagory of very first dog at 40yrs of age was a Vizsla!!
Several years down the line I now own a pair (V's), these have totally changed mine and my wife's lives.
My wife now field trials with our bitch and I now hunt and beat with both. Prior to owning them we had none of the above hobbies/skill sets.......so thank you to them, I owe them so much Brook(male7) & River(bitch4) our first EVER dogs😉

It leads to another question for another post (apologies to OP),
What percentage on here are first time V owners and are first time dog owners, maybe make some interesting reading.

I should rephrase - they are not the "average" beginners dog. ;-)

Re: Recommended Vizsla Breeders in Northeast

I think a lot depends on how committed you are to learning, and following through with what the breed needs.
Putting this breeds needs on a back burner turns into a lot of behavior issues. Their needs have to be met for years, even if you have life changes.

My daughter has a new pup. It was dumped, so we don't know it's background. The neighbor was going to let the pup out of the crate mid day, on days they worked long hours. Well puppy was unsure of the neighbor, and growled at her. She is not comfortable doing it now, so my daughter drove the pup to spend the day with me. It's a extra hour added to her schedule, but it's a backup plan until she can work something out.

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.
