Hi everyone :)

I thought it would be nice to learn some more about the lovely people who participete in here, and maybe to find a vizsla owner for a play-date in our area. I'll start ;)

My name is Tali, soon to be a vizsla owner (the litter due Sep 7-14...) I am 34 years old female, married plus 3 boys and live in Overland Park, Kansas.

Sorry I can't help ya' with the Vizsla playdate, I'm too far away. I'm in eastern Connecticut, on the Rhode Island border.
There are actually quite a number of Vizsla owners and breeders in my area. The Connecticut Valley Vizsla Club, and the New England Vizsla club have some fairly good sized members. Oddly enough though, in the 20+ something years I've been hunting my Vizsla's I've only seen one other Vizsla in the field. ??? iF anyone is in this area, I primarily train my dogs in the Pachaug State Forest, 25,000+ acres, and I'd be more than happy to show you some places where you can safely let your Vizsla's go nuts.

All of my dogs have been Upwind Kennel Dogs from New Hampshire.

Hey there,
From Toronto, Canada. My girlfriend and I have a 5 month old.
We are meeting up with another member from the forum for some Vizsla exercise. Hoepfully we can make it happen this weekend. FUnny thing is, we both bought our dogs from the same breeder. Onpoint Vizlas just outside of Toronto.
They have been breeding and training them for hunting for many years now.
So if anyone is looking for a great breeder give them a look.

Hey All.... we're quite a ways from everyone I think. Little island off Southwest Florida. Have had our V now for a little over a week and she's 9 1/2 weeks old. Growing like a weed and can go from 0 to 90 in playmode in the blink of an eye and then drop for a puppy nap before you realize what happened. She loves riding in the Jeep, play time at the beach and is enjoying the warm Gulf Waters. Not much dog interaction until her 12 week shots, but she seems to draw human admirers like bees to a beautiful flower! She's now up to 13 pounds, has a loving personality, walks well on lead and sits on command.... we're keeping our fingers crossed that all these good traits just continue to expand! ;)

Think I'm safe in saying I live too far away to meet up - Yorkshire England. But would love to meet other V owners if there is anyone in this area.

Near aberdeen, Scotland anyone?

Also, there is a vizsla walk in Glasgow every year, someone made a thread about it here when it was on this summer but I can't remember what it was called so I can't find it.

Tali, I just missed you. I was in KC last week. But We are back in Houston now. Went to two of your dog parks though. Penn Valley and Shawnee Mission Park. Met a V at Penn Valley. I believe she was a two year old. You might try there sometime.

What did you do here ?

We're in Staffordshire, England, not far from the lovely Peak District. We've only ever met one other vizsla since we had Ferdie. It was great to see him being able to play with another dog that's as boisterous and energetic as he is! Sometimes he's just too much for the smaller dogs we tend to meet on his walks!

We're out in Kailua, Hawaii. The other Vizslas I know are his brothers that we see at the shows. Hard to coordinate play dates since everyones schedules are so different. BUT if there are other owners in Hawaii...let's hear from you!!! There's a huge dog park by my house that the dogs can run and play hide and seek with their owners and of course other doggies. ;D

Fistral beach is lovely we go to cornwall once a year for a short break Purdey is yet to join us as we went earlier this year and didn't have her then. she loves our beaches abit unsure of the waves ( i don't like her too close anyway as we have some of the most strongest under currents) luckily we know which beaches are the safer ones due to spending many a day with the human kids there.
did you let him off lead? i am not brave enough yet even though i don t think she would go far from us abit of a scaredy cat at the mo!
looks like scooby was relaxed and enjoying he's hol! ;)
