An Alliance of Vizsla breeders who have been working diligently for 20+ years to improve and perpetuate the North American Vizsla breed's versatile hunting abilities in both the uplands and wetlands. Our alliance aligns our values of a versatile hunting vizsla with the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) philosophy of breeding and training versatile hunting dogs.
We've developed our breeding programs utilizing the NAVHDA testing system as a platform for validating performance, aptitude, and natural ability of the vizsla.
WHAT DOES VERSATILE MEAN?
Our definition of Versatile is defined by NAVHDA. Within the context of the NAVHDA philosophy, we define the versatile hunting vizsla as a hunting dog who is BRED and TRAINED to reliably hunt and point game, to reliably retrieve game on both land and water, and to track wounded game on both land and water.
Alliance Breeders are committed to breeding truly versatile dogs that exhibit intense hunting aptitudes on land and in water with strong retrieving instinct. These dogs are expected to be outstanding family dogs, as the mental stability required to prove themselves in a testing venue and to function as a finished gun dog will also be expressed in good social skills and emotional response.
