    Wirehaired Viszla

    I have had Short haired Viszlas in the past but haven't used them as deer dogs.
    As said in previous posts I've used most other breeds [labs,whp,gsp,teckels,terriers and even a Norwegian grey]

    Are any of you using WHV's and how are you getting on with them, temperament etc., are there any traits you should look for?

    A pal of mine has a litter coming soon and due to having to put my lab down last month [prematurely] I'm on the look out for a replacement.
    My pals bitch is an excellent wee dog and I would have her in a shot but it would be great to get some input , even if it's just used to lever my wife into paying that wee bit extra!!!!!

    Mudman has one, have a chat with him, I am going to get one in a couple of years.
    They (imo) are the ideal allrounder.

    Here is a picture of my 7 month old HWV. Very good dogs only too willing to please and very quick learners. In my opinion these dogs are worth every penny. Book one from your friend asap!!

    I think the picture did the trick!!!!!

    My pals wee bitch has the same traits as the shorthairs I've had in the past, loyal, wanting to please, a bit huffy if given into trouble but easy to handle and train. .

    I will probably keep the next dog in the house, any bad experiences ??

    I'm looking for an all round dog , in the past my hpr's have only filled 1 job ie deer or grouse, I've always kept a kennel full of dogs so each dog has been quite specialised.

    I think a couple of visits once the pups are born will seal the bid!!!!!

    Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla

    I would'nt hesitate. Had my current bitch 8 and a half years and probably the best temperament of any dog I have owned (over 40 years of working dog ownership). This breed almost trains itself both at home and in the field Very adaptable too, I use my bitch (Kira) for falconry and stalking and she does both exceptionally well. She will retreive but due to the falconry I dicourage her. I fully intend to continue with this breed and I would like to see more bred in this country (not so easy to get a pup). Good luck in your venture and I for one would be gratly interested in how you get on.[/img]

    I got mine when he was nearly five years old and I use him for everything from wildfowling on the foreshore to deer stalking. Fantastic temperament, great in the house, really strong hunting and retrieving instinct.
