ACTIVITIES FOR YOU AND YOUR VIZSLA
Vizslas are lovingly referred to as “velcro dogs” because they want to be with the people they love 24
hours a day, 7 days a week. Vizslas are the perfect family dog for those who are already committed
to an active lifestyle. Hunters can still use them to track and point in the field. At home, Vizslas
make superb hiking, biking and jogging companions. They are fairly easy to train, and make a fine
addition to active, outdoorsy families.

Vizslas need at least one hour of vigorous activity every day in order to maintain health, happiness
and an even temperament. These hunting dogs prefer to have a “job” to do. That job can be anything
from carrying a backpack during walks in the neighborhood to simply keeping up with you on a jog.
Vizslas also do very well in organized activities including agility, tracking, field work and advanced
obedience.

In addition to going on long hikes or jogs, you and your Vizsla might enjoy the following activities:

Originally from Hungary, the Vizsla is a medium-sized, short-coated hunting dog that is essentially
Pointer in type, although he combines characteristics of both pointer and retriever. An attractive
golden rust in color, this "dual" dog is popular in both the field and the show ring due to his power
and drive while hunting and his trainability in the home.

A Look Back
The Vizsla’s ancestors were hunters and companions for the Magyar hordes, a tribe that settled in
what is now known as Hungary. A favorite of early barons, Vizslas are depicted in etchings as far
back as the 10th century.

The agricultural terrain of Hungary created a dog of superior nose and high-class hunting ability well-
suited to Hungarian climate and a variety of game, including upland game, rabbits and waterfowl.
Nearly extinct by the end of the World Wars, the Vizsla gradually regained popularity and began to
be imported into the United States in the 1950s.

Right Breed for You?
The Vizsla thrives as part of an active family that provides daily exercise. He is lively and affectionate
to his people, and possesses an above-average ability to take training. Although he sheds, his short
coat requires low daily maintenance.
