    Default Anyone familiar with Vizslas?

    I owns a 2 year old female Vizsla. She’s an excellent loving dog. Other than being a little tired sometimes she’s a good outdoors dog. She is trained to find and retrieve deer antlers. Having the incredible nose that she does, I would love to put it to work on pheasants. She has a very high catch and retrieve drive so I expect her to be a good fit for the task! Anybody else use or used to have a Vizsla?

    And yes in my opinion, their hunting style is geared to pheasants.

    That’s awesome! So you wouldn’t steer me away from making her a bird dog.

    I agree with everyone else on here. I have a Vizsla and if you start bird intro and gun intro appropriately I don't see any issue here. Mine didn't really calm down/ figure out wild birds until she was 2 to 2.5 yrs old. Good luck.

    in what way does she seem tired? most V's are a little soft and sensitive. i had one for 14 years and he was a pheasant hunting fool.

    Just got home an hour ago from picking up a vizsla puppy for my dad. They love chasing pheasant, the little rascal is 8 weeks old and she is trotting around with a pheasant wing.20181208_160551.jpg

    The pups are doing well. At least the 3 that are hunting dogs that I have contact with. Not quite 5 months old yet but 2 out of the 3 retrieve pretty well already. 1 likes to chew still but we just kind of let them be puppies. All 3 point and are very stylish. Whether it be a planted bird or a cornstalk! Drive is pretty high in all 3. The other 2 pups went to colorado somewhere. One is a house pet. I think the other one will get hunted some. I kept the little female.
