Crimson Sky Vizslas
Crimson Sky Vizslas has come a long way since our first Vizsla hunting dog. Today we are breeding some of the most competitive Vizslas in the country. In 2011 alone we won 3 National Championships. The Vizsla club of America VCA National Amateur Field Championship NAFC, National Gun Dog Championship NGDC and the National Vizsla Association National Championship NVANFC.
As of 2016 our dogs have won 6 National Championships and placed in many others. 2015 was a good year for Rigby placing in the NAFC at the Vizsla Nationals. In the spring of 2016 we earned 3 Championship titles on our dogs. Gauge finished his Amateur Field Championship, and Dakota finished both Amateur Field Championship and Field Championship. Our youngest Male Gauge at 2 years placed 3rd in the Vizsla Club of America National Championship. Last fall at 3 He was again called back for second series.
In the Spring of 2016 one of our puppies won the 2016 NGDC and another received an award of merit. In 2011 we produced the 1st, 3rd, and 4th place Vizsla Club of America National puppy winners. In 2012 Ruger again produced the VCA 1st and 3rd place National Puppies. At almost 12 years old, Ruger added to his resume a 3rd place placement in the Vizsla Club of America National Gun Dog Championship. for a more comprehensive list of accomplishments visit our Vizsla News page.
We have produced both conformation and field champions, hunting dogs as well as agility, obediance 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. Through her our lives were forever changed.
Madison originally 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. He is a wonderful dog out of our Madi bred to Raany owned by Jim and Linda Busch of Busch Vizslas. Ruger has gone on the be the highest Nationaly titled Vizsla in history. 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 often pack up the RV with horses, dogs and the family and away we go.
We are currently members of the 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". In the past, Mark is serving on the board for the Vizsla Club of Greater Milwaukee, he has served on the Board for the 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 is 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.
Our lovely home is located on several acres where we perform most of our training. We also have the luxury to keep our horses Hunter, Juez, and Skip on our property with us. We keep a small supply of homing pigeons and quail year round so we always have birds to train our dogs with. You can usually find Mark out in the field training the dogs or helping other Vizsla owners learn to train their own dogs.
