Hungarian Vizsla Info & Hungarian Vizsla Breeders

Skip to Registered Hungarian Vizsla Breeder list >

Medium sized and elegantly built, the Hungarian Vizsla is an outstanding all-purpose gundog originating in the 9th century.  His easy to care for coat is richly coloured russet gold, and the Vizsla is one breed that does not have a dog smell. 


A rare breed due to destruction during and after the second World War, Vizslas have great stamina, and are happy to be outdoors in all weathers with their owners.  They are popular pets in their native Hungary, where they adapt easily to living in house or apartment.  They need mental engagement and stimulation as much as exercise, and need to be part of their owner’s world.  They thrive with clear and consistent routine.


Lively, gentle-mannered and demonstratively affectionate, fearless and with well developed protective instinct, Vizslas are an intelligent dog with very good memory, which makes them easy to train, although they are both sensitive and stubborn.  Being gentle dogs, they are great with children, but being very energetic need to be well managed.  The Vizsla is responsive to intelligent handling, and needs discipline and clear boundaries and expectations for his behaviour.  Vizslas often require compromise rather than confrontation, provided that they respect you. 


Not all people are suited to Vizslas, but those who are tend to be fanatical about them!


Hungarian Vizsla health

Healthwise, Vizslas have few major health concerns as a breed.  There can be individual issues, and temperament varies between different bloodlines, so it is important to discuss history and temperament with your breeder.
