I have owned Vizslas since 1995 and have been training dogs all of my life. I have competed in the AKC events of conformation, hunting tests, field trials for pointing breeds, agility, obedience and rally. My dogs are titled in Conformation, hunting, obedience, rally, agility and Canine Good Citizen. I have bred Vizslas since 1992 and have worked nationally with the Vizsla Rescue Program. I believe in treating dogs with positive methods, patience and fun.
