;D Surely you jest! But, V's will go as long as you let them in my experience! V's are awesome. And, it sounds like you'll have plenty of opportunity to get a V out for exercise.madaboutvizslas said:Only 10 miles?
About the cat thing, we don't have cats, but I think if you already have a cat in the home, it's going to be easier to teach your V to leave them alone or otherwise harmoniously co-exist. Though, I won't deny some V's can have high prey instinct; which wouldn't be any different if you were to get a GS pointer.
I don't know a thing about Dalmations, and I've never had a GSP. However, the GSPs I've been around seem to all be a bit more high strung. It could just be bad genes or improper socialization...and I know they have their pros and cons too.
