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.
