Vizsla Dog Temperament

Bred to be a close-working gun dog, the vizsla has the energy to range all day. He is a true hunter at heart, a talented pointer and always on the lookout for bird scent. He can become frustrated and destructive if not given adequate exercise. Most can be stubborn, some can be timid and others can be overly excitable. He is gentle, affectionate and sensitive, and can be protective. The vizsla makes a good companion for an active family who spends a lot of time outdoors.

Vizsla Dog Care

The vizsla needs a lot of strenuous exercise every day. This is an active breed that cannot be expected to meet his energy requirements with a short walk or within a small yard. He needs to be jogged or allowed to run in a large enclosed area. Otherwise, his needs are minimal. His coat requires little care except an occasional brushing to remove dead hair. He needs a soft bed.
