Vizsla Puppy Litters

Looking for a Vizsla Puppy?

It's very important you find a breeder that, at minimum, meets all the Breed recommended testing, OFA Hips, Thyroid, and Eyes.  Before breeding Halo, we tested her for all of the above, and we also certified her Elbows for good measure.  We also require these minimum tests of our stud dog partners.

Halo whelped her first and only litter in August 2018 and we will likely not be breeding again for several years.  However, we are happy to help you find a puppy from a responsible Vizsla breeder, or put you in touch with a great rescue group in your area.  If we can help, please contact us anytime at

Philosophy

We will only be breeding selectively and rarely as we want to be part of Halo’s progeny for the entirety of their lives.  Can you imagine if we bred yearly?  That would be A LOT of people and puppies to keep up with!  We guarantee the health of our puppies and are committed to taking the puppies back if there is ever a situation that arises where you can no longer care for your 5280 Vizsla.

We FIRMLY believe that your Vizsla puppy needs a job.  We compete with and train our Vizslas in conformation, agility, rally, obedience, coursing, hunting, and therapy work.  We don’t expect you to do all these things, but we do expect you to be committed to training your Vizsla.  This is a high energy breed that gets very stir crazy without exercise -- physical AND mental.  It is a big responsibility, and we know some of you may label us as “crazy dog people.”  That’s okay.  We understand that getting a Vizsla and choosing a breeder is a big decision.

If you think we would be a good match for you, please fill out an application.  If not, we hope you will contact Vizsla Rescue and find a Vizsla more suited to your personalities and lifestyle.

Stud Services

Here are the stats on our boys:

Indy

Pedigree: SR18976404
DNA: V602485
OFA Elbow: VZ-EL618M24-PI, Normal
OFA Hip: VZ-9836G24M-PI, Good

Frozen semen available

We carefully consider breeding possibilities.  We will scrutinize pedigrees and get opinions of other breeders before agreeing to stud out.  The Vizsla is a beautiful, magnificent breed, but if we don’t think our boy and your girl will better the breed, we will help you find a more suitable option.

Policies

24 Month Spay/Neuter Minimum

We ask that you keep your Vizsla intact until at least 18 months (24 preferred.)  Want to know why?

Think of spaying as removing your puppies hormones before they reach maturation.  What would that do to their bones and joints as they grow?  Hormone regulation is important to ensure your puppy grows balanced and doesn't become one of those "too leggy" Vizslas.  Also, while keeping your pup intact increases the risk of breast or testicular cancer, those are relatively rare cancers in Vizslas, especially compared to the myriad of health benefits keeping him/her intact can provide.  You can read more here:

OFA Testing -- Hips, Thyroid, Eyes

We are committed to ensuring we are only breeding to better the breed.  As such, we tested Halo for all recommended CHIC tests AND require the same of our sires.  We need you to test your pup to ensure we are doing the best by the breed and some crazy recessive gene isn’t lurking.

Temperament and Puppy Rearing

We have attended seminars and believe in Jane Killion’s Puppy Culture methods.  We will be following all protocols while Halo is pregnant and through the day you take your puppy home.  We would like you to become acquainted with the plan:  https://puppyculture.com/what-is-puppy-culture.html
