We have produced both conformation and field champions, hunting dogs as well as agility, obedience and house pets. We have always tried to strive to produce the “Dual Vizsla”, one that will excel in both the field and show ring. We breed for temperament, intelligence drive and bid ability. It took us a while to get to the point we are now, but it all started as a thought and a dream when we purchased our first Vizsla puppy – her name was Madison. She was our foundation bitch and will be forever missed.

Through her our lives were forever changed.

 

Madison joined our family as a part time hunting dog for Mark and Pam’s full time companion. It didn’t stop there! Through Madi, we were introduced into many different facets of the Vizsla world – hunt tests, field trials, conformation, agility and puppies. We then decided that one was not enough, typical among Vizsla owners. Our second Vizsla was Ruger.

Ruger was a wonderful dog out of our Madi bred to Raany. He was owned by Jim and Linda Busch of Busch Vizslas. Jim and Linda helped us in this endeavor from day one. they helped us to learn the field trial game and taught us about breeding. We thank them for their guidance along the way.

   Ruger went on the be the highest Nationally titled Vizsla in history. In 2019 Ruger was inducted into the VCA Hall of Fame. As you read through these pages you will find the rest is history.

 

All of our Vizslas hunt hard and come home to be our pets. It is very common for the family to watch TV or play in the yard together. Our daughter and dogs are best friends.  Hailey can be found playing dog show, or dress up with the dogs. She also helps in the yard with field training. We are very active with our dogs. We hunt, field trial, hunt test and show our dogs in the conformation ring. When we are not competing with our dogs, they live in the house as part of the family. Competitions with our dogs are a family affair.  We pack up the RV with horses, dogs and the family and away we go.

 

We are currently members of the Tampa Bay Vizsla Club, Vizsla Club of Metro Atlanta, Vizsla Club of America (VCA), the Vizsla Club of Illinois (VCOI), Vizsla Club of Greater Milwaukee (VCGM), and the Central Wisconsin Vizsla Club (CWVC). We support the Vizsla Club of Easter Iowa (VCEI), the Vizlsa Club of Michigan and the Gateway Vizsla Club (GWVC). Pam was the Vizsla Club of Illinois President and has served as a board member. Pam also coordinated the Central Wisconsin Vizsla Club Rescue program for over 3 years. Pam and I own an all breed dog and cat grooming shop named “Paws-Abilities”.  

Mark has served on the board for the Vizsla Club of America, Vizsla Club of Greater Milwaukee, Vizsla Club of Illinois VCOI, and the Lake Superior Vizsla Club, Mark has chaired events for the Central Wisconsin Vizsla Club and the Vizsla Club of Illinois. Including field trials hunt tests and organizing the Vizsla Club of Illinois training day. Mark was also the Standing Chair for the Midwest Vizsla Futurity, an American Kennel Club (AKC) Field Trial Judge and Hunt Test Judge. Mark is the photographer for the Vizsla Club of America field trials. you can view his photos under Event Photos or on the VCA Website.

 

We were taught to give back to the Vizsla breed by helping to mentor new vizsla owners and members of the clubs.

 

We have recently moved to central Florida and started a new chapter in life. although we no longer have the acreage and horses we are as active as ever in the dog world. You can usually find Mark out in the field training the dogs or helping other Vizsla owners learn to train their own dogs. We are regularly heading to the surrounding states for local trials and anyplace in the country for National events
