More Information About Vizla Dogs
The Vizsla is a breed of dog that traces its origin to Hungary. Vizslas fall under the category of Pointer dogs (these are dogs that and were bred to work with hunters while hunting in the field). It is often believed that the attachment between this breed of dog (Vizsla) and humans come from the first Vizslas that were being used by Hungary’s hordes and barons many centuries ago century were always beside their human owners.
They are also referred to as “velcro dogs” because they are extremely loving, clingy, and want to be with their family almost every time. You should therefore be expecting your puppy to try and tag along wherever you go. This is why it’s important to choose a good dog name for your Vizla that will grab their attention.
Due to their genetic construct of being hunting dogs, they are easily trained which makes for a more lovable pet. The popular story of Kubrick the dog by Sean Ellis documents the lovable nature of the Vizla dog breed and is highly recommended if you’re getting this breed. They are ranked by the American Kennel Club #31 in popularity out of 197 breeds.
Vizslas are not your typical fancy or lap dog as they are relatively high energy. This is why, if you are looking to buy one, make sure you have someone who will keep the dog busy and active for you if you wouldn’t be able to do so yourself. This dog needs to be exercised regularly!
These days, Vizlas often are used either as watchdogs or personal companions. Their genetics plays a very vital role in how they act and should be treated. They love attention so will do anything to get it and they love to run and work out (which can be good for you if you love to take runs) and finally, are easily trained in contrast to some other breeds of dogs.
According to dogtime.com “By the 19th and early 20th century, the Vizsla was a distinct breed with excellent scenting powers who worked closely with its handler. During World War I, the talented hunting dog was used to deliver messages”.
After surviving World War I, followed by the ravages of World War II, nearly brought an end to the breed. Fortunately, the Vizsla managed to survive, and the first members of the breed were imported to the United States in the early 1950s.
