The Vizsla combines the characteristics of an excellent hunting dog with those of a wonderful companion to its owner. This manual gives authoritative advice on dog purchase, preventive health care, the Vizsla's changing nutritional needs throughout its life cycle, socializing and housebreaking a puppy, training it for hunting, breeding, and first-aid measures for virtually any kind of accident.
The Hungarian Vizsla has been through considerable cross-breeding; it is believed to have received its rusty brown coat color from the Turkish Quail-hunting dogs and its pointer capabilities from the German and English breeds. Nevertheless, the breed has remained native to Hungary for over a century! It is not only a symbol of heritage and prestige, but also of beauty and affection at its best! It is a medium sized dog breed that has its upsides and downsides. Typically a short-haired, non-shedding breed, the Hungarian Vizsla owns a majestic personality and charm. They cannot work in guardian roles; however, they make amazingly loving companions for their owners. They are generally sociable and blend in well with children, animals and other dogs. The Hungarian Vizsla is called Velcro for a reason - they like being around their masters. They will do tricks and follow orders meticulously to receive praise. But if they are left on their own for too long, they are likely to experience separation anxiety. The intelligent ones may be able to find their way out of captivity as well! They are relatively easy to groom and train. They make wonderful companions and are suited for most environments as long as their needs are catered to. The Hungarian Vizsla makes a perfect companion for most dog lovers. To find out more about this spectacular dog breed, read through this book, which I hope answers all your questions. Everything you need to know about this breed is contained in this book. This manual contains all the information you need including transitioning through house breaking, care, feeding, training and end of life, so that you can make a well informed decision whether or not the Hungarian Vizsla is the breed for you. If you already have an Hungarian Vizsla, you will learn everything you need to know to keep your dog healthy and happy. Covered in this book: - Brief history - Temperament - Pros and Cons - Where to buy and when - Preparing your home - The first days - Health - Daily care - Grooming - Training - Costs - General tips, tricks and guidelines ..... and much more.

This book is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of veterinarians. Readers should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to their dog’s health, and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require medical attention. In writing this book, we have described the signs and symptoms that will lead you to a preliminary idea of what is happening with your dog, so you can weigh the severity of the problem. Knowing when to call your veterinarian is very important. Delays can be dangerous. At the same time, we have sought to provide guidance for the acute or emergency situations that you must handle on your own until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Life-saving procedures such as artificial respiration and heart massage, and what to do in the event of poisonings, obstetrical problems, and other emergencies are explained step by step. But a veterinary handbook is not a substitute for professional care. Advice from a book can never be as helpful or as safe as actual medical advice. No text can replace the interview and the hands-on examination that enables a veterinarian to make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. However, the knowledge provided in this book will enable you to more effectively cooperate and better understand your interactions with your veterinarian. You’ll be more alert to the signs of health problems and better able to describe them. You’ll know more about basic care for your dog, and you’ll be prepared in an emergency.
The Vizsla is said to be a distinguished looking dog of aristocratic bearing, sought-after by sportsmen and, in many ways, the ideal working gundog combining all three disciplines of hunting, pointing and retrieving. It is also making a name for itself in the show ring, and in this comprehensive book, the author highlights the history of the breed and reveals the art of training a dog for show and field. The breed Standard is analized, breeding principles are discussed, and guidelines are supplied for choosing a Vizsla puppy.
