However, they must be trained gently and without harsh commands or strong physical correction, as they have sensitive temperaments and can be easily damaged if trained too harshly. Vizslas are excellent swimmers. Some may need a little motivation to get in the water but as they get used to it they will love it. Like all hunting dogs , Vizslas require a great deal of exercise to remain healthy and happy. The Vizsla thrives on attention, exercise, and interaction.
They are intelligent dogs and need a lot of mental stimulation when young. If left alone for long hours, they can be bored and destructive. The Vizsla wants to be close to its owner as much as possible.
A Vizsla Club of America survey puts the average lifespan of the Vizsla at 9. Responsible breeders do not select dogs for breeding if they have such inherent problems. Major risks include epilepsy and lymphosarcoma. Vizslas can also be prone to skin and food allergies.
Unlike many other dogs, Vizslas do not have an undercoat. Therefore, they are unsuited for living outdoors. As companions of the early warlords and barons, Vizsla blood was preserved pure for centuries by the land-owning aristocracy who guarded them jealously and continued to develop the hunting ability of these "yellow-pointers". Records of letters and writings show the high esteem in which the Vizsla was held.
However, Vizslas faced and survived several near-extinctions in their history, including being overrun by English Pointers and German Shorthaired Pointers in the s Boggs, and again to near-extinction after World War II. From that minimum stock, the breed rose to prominence once again. The various "strains" of the Vizsla have become somewhat distinctive as individuals bred stock that suited their hunting style.
As interest in and devotion to the breed began to increase, owners formed the Vizsla Club of America in order to gain AKC recognition.
