Vizsla vs. Weimaraner

So I came across this website today a side by side comparison on the V and Weim. It is also a poll of what breed is liked more. The info of the V in my opinion is way off!!! It says they are NOT intelligent, social, or responsive. Am I missing here??? Where did they get info for this site??? My 12 week old pup is picking up tricks and commands a lot faster in the two weeks I've had her then most other peoples dog I know have picked them up and everyone I tell or show are amazed (and that is just showing on intelligence and response). Here is a link to the site if any of you want to check it out:

Re: Vizsla vs. Weimaraner

Doesn't look like they did their research on the breed.

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.

Re: Vizsla vs. Weimaraner

I've stumbled across that comparison too. They got it completely wrong!

We've been waiting for a Weim puppy since about October. We're on puppy watch right now!! (For the second time though... :-[) It's funny because I used to lurk on a Weim forum too, only having a V. Whenever Vizslas would come up, they would talk about how they didn't think V's were friendly, or social, or smart, or cuddly compared to Weims. Weims are so popular compared to V's that I think a lot of these people just don't always know much about Vizslas and don't realize how similar they are!

Re: Vizsla vs. Weimaraner

Although the one difference I've heard a lot is how Weims can be a lot more stubborn. We just met a girl at a dog-friendly baseball game last week and she wanted to know more about V's because she'd lost her Weim a couple of years ago. She said one thing that really appealed to her is how much more willing V's are supposed to be!

I've just voted in the poll, so it's 50/50 now

Re: Vizsla vs. Weimaraner

We have one of each, both females. One is one and the other is 2. Weimaraners are very high maintenance but extremely smart. Vizsla's are also smart and quick to learn. They are both Velcro dogs but the Weim more so. They are both loving breeds. Weims do not know how to play by themselves. The Vizsla can entertain herself without damaging anything. Both these breeds need lots of exercise. They and you will be much happier. The Weim seems to suffer more with separation anxiety then the Vizsla. The Weim still destroys items if she gets anxious. Knock on wood the Vizsla has never destroyed anything. We keep a lot of chew toys out for them. These are both wonderful breeds but they need to be with people and not left outside. These are truly inside house dogs. They are great companions.

Re: Vizsla vs. Weimaraner

Having owned both breeds, and at the same time, I believe this survey is very inaccurate. I left a comment/review... The dogs may resemble each other in stature, coat, appearance, Hunting capabilities ... but it pretty much stops there. Their personalities are very different!! As for intelligence. I believe they are very close, or equal. The only Big difference I have found thus far, is our Weimy had a much greater vocabulary, we could talk to her like a person until it came to making her be QUIET and then she was" An Idiot".
The Weimaraner is such a "Thinking Dog" ours would not only figure things out, she would actually perceive (example At the age of 11 yrs, Greta (Weim) and Foxy (V pup 5 mo.s) are playing around a swimming pool. It is Foxy's first experience with water/pool. Greta is beyond the age of jumping in and swimming (as she used to LOVE). The water is cold, it is January. Greta watched Foxy put both feet in the water on the top step of the pool. Greta see's Foxy's curiosity, but Foxy has not gone deeper "Yet". Greta walks into the pool down the steps beside Foxy and swims around the pup on the step, an then climbs out, she never takes her eyes off Foxy.
In my opinion she could see Foxy's interest in the water, and gave her a demonstration/visual of what would happen if she went further.
As for affection ... I feel both breeds are very affectionate, The Vizsla just acts on it's feelings and is more physical.
