Considering a Vizsla next?

Hi all,
Confession up front, I don't have a Vizsla! I just joined in because I am considering the breed for my next pup, looking for a pet and a hunting companion and looking for as much inside info as I can before making my decision.
So many breeds, so many options, always had a bit of a soft spot for the V and considered one may years ago but went with something else, looking forward to learning more.

OOPs, probably should have put this in itroductions hey!

Before I started working for a breeder, I knew next to nothing about them. I had met one as a child, and that was about it.

They are such great dogs! I loved my job working with them. They are so sweet and gentle. I can't think of anything bad to say about them.

If you are looking for a reputable breeder for a hunting line dog, let me know. I can point you to a fabulous one. (I didn't join here to drum up buisness for Rob, just so everyone knows. I'd like people to check him out if they are genuinely interested.)
When we decided on a V I started reading everything I could find regarding
Vizslas. Start googling Vizslas on line, Vizsla breeders, etc etc.. read read read and don't forget the book the Versatile Vizsla by Marion Coffman.
The more you can educate yourself on the breed and breeders the happier you will be and more informed on what lays ahead of you regarding life with a V.

They are beautiful, loving dogs but definitely not for everyone. And even though I knew they were high energy dogs and we were prepared for that,
we are still amazed at her level of need for physical and mental activity.. which in turn makes for a more well rounded, better behaved companion and happier dog.
Thanks for the tips guy's, just been thru the whole puppy stage with my current girl (Britany Spaniel now 2 1/4 yrs old) all the puppy stuff/behaviour is still fresh in my mind. I wouldn't imagine the puppy behaviour wouldn't be a great deal different with both being high energy type breeds.
