The Full Hungarian Vizsla Description

Vizslas have energy galore. Their owners will have fun keeping them busy. Vizslas are fun to train because they are eager to prove how much they love their owners. They are smart and learn quickly. They are also sensitive, so gentle corrections go a long way.

Did you know?

The Vizsla is also called a Hungarian Pointer.
At the end of World War I, the Vizsla was all but extinct.

Vizslas are small enough to be good dogs for a city apartment, but remember like other sporting dogs they require daily exercise.
Vizsla's are sensitive dogs, devoted to those who treat them kindly and give them attention. The Vizsla is not very discriminating to who he shows affection, he loves everyone.
