The Vizsla is a typical hunter. Elegant, light as a ray of sunshine, she will undoubtedly become not only your best friend but also an excellent helper.
Vizsla is suitable for both experienced breeders and beginners in handling a dog. They are quite smart and loyal, they do not pay attention to some mistakes made by the master due to inexperience. Crafty puppies make great friends, hunters, and companions in any daily life.
These dogs truly feel in love and attention. They will be happy to visit the nearest park to get acquainted with the neighboring animals there and lick a few people. However, despite this friendliness, the owner chooses the Vizsla once and for life.
No matter how warm her relationship with her family is, she will not go far from the owner. Wherever the owner goes, even within his own apartment, this will not remain without the attention of the pet. Even if you decide to lock yourself in the room, chances are she is just dressing to sleep on the doorstep rather than returning to her studies.
The character of the Vizsla requires as much patience as it does attention. She expects you to love her as unconditionally as she loves you. If you spend all day at work, this breed is not for you. It is better to choose from those dogs that can easily endure long separations from the owner. The animal is not an accessory or part of the interior. It requires the same attention.
Care and maintenance
The maintenance and care of the Vizsla need constant, but at the same time, it is not difficult. About 1-2 times a week, you need to brush the dog out with a brush or special glove. Combs is not particularly effective against short hair. The line of these dogs is constant, but to a greater extent in the winter-spring period. During these months, the dog needs to be brushed every day.
These dogs do not need to take scheduled baths. You can wash them as needed with a specialized shampoo for short-haired dogs. During enhanced shedding, it is better to carry out this reinforced shedding with rubber gloves. Dry shampoo can be used in winter. It is enough to rub it into the wool, and then comb it well.
Historically, these dogs have always lived side by side with humans. It is worth noting that if on the street he glows with energy, then in the house, as if by magic, he becomes a gentle beast. Feeding Does not require frills: you can buy ready-made feed, or you can do it yourself. Homemade food for dogs must include lean meat, boiled offal with cereals, vegetables, boiled sea fish, and dairy products in the form of cottage cheese and kefir.
In matters of hygiene, these dogs are unpretentious. It is recommended to clean the wool with a special brush or mitten 2 times a week, and during the shedding period – 1 time in 10 days. You need to bathe your pet once a month. In the summertime, it is good to give the opportunity to splash in reservoirs, based on a natural weakness for water. As for the nails, it is optimal to cut them every 4-5 weeks. With proper care, Vizsls live for 12-15 years.
