Consider your home and lifestyle. Dogs are social creatures and need human attention, affection, and quality time with family members
Vizslas need to exercise. Puppies will require two hours of play and exercise a day while Adults will need a minimum of 45 to 60 minutes of vigorous daily exercise. You will need to walk, run, jog, or hike each day with your Vizsla
While protective, Vizslas are not guard dogs
Training is essential for all dogs. Consider if you have the time and money to invest in obedience lessons
Good quality, nutritious food, veterinary clinic visits, and training all cost money
