This is a new section dedicated to the hunting side of Vizslas - created after it was suggested to me.

So, feel free to post ;)

Do Vizslas point naturally? My four month old pup, Keni, points occasionally but only for a few seconds, and he doesn't lift his leg every time.

If not, how do you teach them to point longer.

Also, how do you teach vizslas to hunt?

Thanks

Mine did from a very young age, some encouragment could help like pointing yourself and saying whats that and stuff.

I would make a new thread by the way, since it could get a long discussion.

I approved your pics as well btw.

They will point naturally. They don't necessarily lift their leg every time they point.
To get them to hold point longer, plant some quail and work the dog up wind into the scent cone. They will point and then start to creep in. As long as you have good flying birds that don't let the dog catch them. The birds will teach the dog not to get too close. If you aren't positive that the birds are great flyers you can leave your dog on a check cord and step on the end when they point, that way they cant bust the bird either.
Then work on training the whoa command, and work that into bird work when they are steady to the command.
I wouldn't shoot a bird that the dog has busted, but there are two very distinct schools of thought on that.
