Hi Andrew, She’s doing great. We named her Wren, the little bird dog. ? Shes such a little handful but she’s learning and is smart. My dog Nola is helping so much! The kids love her and we are so happy she is here!

Greetings! We got a puppy from you a few years back and she’s been wonderful.

We have our hands full with Kati pup. She is so good but VERY energetic and busy. Really keeps us going! Kurt took Kati chukar hunting a couple of weeks ago and, of course, she did great on the hunting part. She is still hesitant to pick up a dead/injured bird. Perhaps something I caused during the summer when I kept having to tell her to leave the little ones alone. Kurt did a lot of work with her with the dead chukar to convince her that it was a good thing to pick them up during hunting season and take them to Dad.

Willow doing great. Quite a handful, but she’s getting lots of playtime with my 5-year-old vizsla and also a 3-year-old female we know that’s almost like a puppy herself. They chase each other all over the place. I’ve started taking Willow out for short adventures in the woods with my other dogs. She loves water. We’ve started the “puppy prep” classes at the dog training place too. She’s good at sit and down and not doing too bad with leash walking either. But she’s like every other vizsla I’ve known and wants to jump all over everyone, so we are working on that. 🙂

I have been meaning to reach out to you to let you know how my dog has been. I picked up my dog from you almost a year ago exactly. There were two boys in the litter and I got the second one. I couldn’t be happier with him. I have hunted with him all year and he just put it all together a couple weekends ago after getting into the middle of a group that all got up and scared the shit out of him. After that he knew what he was there for and started hunting with a purpose. He has an insane amount of energy and is such a loving dog. Sometimes his curiosity gets him into trouble (he got a foxtail in his cheek and a twig up his nostril) but it’s that same curiosity that has helped him to be such a quick learner. A lot of people from the Reno area have asked where I got him from and I have sent them your direction. So I hope they are reaching out. I hope the other boy has been treating you just as well as Alan has been treating me. Thank you for the perfect breed! My dog has been an awesome hunting dog. His nose is up there with the better dogs that we hunt with and he has been working on the retrieving still. Hopefully this is the year!

Penny is doing amazingly and everyone who meets her loves her. She is such a smart, loving and amazing dog. When our other dog’s health took a turn and had a leg amputated, she was right there with him giving love and support. She hardly stops moving unless it’s to snuggle with her family and is a master at fetch. She is very intuitive and patient with her boy who has autism. We are so blessed to have her. Thank you for the great experience of helping us to ensure this breed was right for us and the amazing dog who we couldn’t imagine life without.
- Heather Fink - January 26, 2018
We love her ? she is such a good puppy!
- Julie Bechthold - December 21, 2017
Hey Andrew. Hope you are well. If you recall, we adopted a female from your summer litter. We named her Kona and she is amazing. Such a smart and sweet dog.
- Kyle Turner - December 12, 2017
Isabel turned 3 in September (15th?) – she’s doing great.
- Dave Owens - December 11, 2017
Asta is doing amazing! She is my running partner, training for a half marathon this spring. She still sleeps in the bed under the covers. She is clearly not a morning dog, she sleeps until 10am. She loves to open the sock drawer and present us with socks while performing her “wiggle butt” greeting. Two people asked me about her this week, and I found myself describing her as the perfect dog.
- Jessica Rupp - December 9, 2017
It has been about a year since I picked up Roby from you. He has been a wonderful addition to our family. He constantly keeps us going and has a great personality. He has been a very healthy dog with no issues.
- Brett Ellen - December 8, 2017
Things are going great with Holly still, she’s amazing.
- Kristi Torsak - December 7, 2017
Jed is doing really well with his search and rescue training. Hoping to get him certified early summer.
- Tammy Halstead - December 7, 2017
We love Cheyenne. She’s almost 2. Lives on a couple acres of land and is the most loving girl.
- Josh Ware - December 7, 2017
Our little Rusty is awesome!!
- Mike Page - December 7, 2017
Hope all is well. Our dog Hank that we purchased in the summer of 2016 has been great. Our hunting this year has been amazing. He has held and found so many birds. He is also retrieving almost every bird. Everybody comments on how great he is and everybody thinks he is beautiful. He is a lover with the family and a machine in the field. I have really loved hunting with him. I have had a lot of people ask if we are ever going to breed him. I also have shared your info for a few people who have asked where I got Hank. My son Rykon shot his first pheasant this year which Hank pointed and retrieved for us. It was a great moment. For a dog that is just a little over 1 year he has been great and is only getting better.
- Rich Smith - December 7, 2017
Lucy is keeping us on our toes. She is doing well, although she is being more rambunctious in the house, as it’s getting colder and her walks are getting a little shorter as a result. When we take her to the field to work her, she typically is staying within 25 yards of us. We are still looking into the prospect of potentially wanting to enter her into the conformation ring. She is a wonderful dog, and we are very happy that we bought her from you.
- Brian & Jill Loomis - December 7, 2017
Satch is such a gorgeous dog………in my un-biased opinion. 🙂 Things are going well so far, but we still have some work to do. He went on point a couple of times on Sunday, once for a small covey of Valley Quail (about 4 of them) and then again on a much larger covey (about 20 quail). I was really encouraged by his ability to find and recognize those birds. Also, on command, he dove into that thick cover and flushed those birds out, which, for quail, is an absolute must or you can’t get them out of there. Anyway, I just wanted to send you this update. I am probably annoying you by continually sending all of these updates. If so, I apologize. I am just excited about the progress Satch is making. Things seem to be going well and I’ve been spending a lot of time with him in the field and last night was our best outing yet. He was so excited about the quail we found and he was just whining (almost like he was singing to me) as he was trying to corner them and get them pinned down in several very large thickets. I hope you are doing well! Thanks again for all of your help and I will keep you posted as progress continues.
- Dave Ryan - March 28, 2017
First off, I just wanted to say thank you for providing us with an amazing source of energy and fun. Kona has turned into an energetic and beautiful house dog. She has a two mile run every morning (rain or shine) and we have found that the run makes living in a house with a smallish yard tolerable for her. Everywhere we go, we get,”What a beautiful dog!” Seriously, nearly every trip to the dog park or even just out for a walk. Her temperament is incredible. She has never been aggressive toward anything. She has grown into an ebullient, silly and loving dog. Everyone she meets loves her.
- George Arizmendez - November 23, 2016
Rusty is now a little over 1 year old….. he’s just amazing – absolutely love this dog!!
- Mike Page - November 20, 2016
Our Ruby is doing so great and we love her lots. She loves to roam in the hills near our house. Thanks for a great dog!
- Jen Call - November 19, 2016
Cheyenne is doing great. She’s awesome. Such a sweet girl. She’s a great family dog. We just moved to a couple acre property and she’s loving the extra space and exploring. Everyone comments how good she looks. She’s close to 50 pounds. She’s a big girl! Like a small horse! Everything is good over here and things have been easy. She loves other dogs and is doing good with obedience training. Potty training was a breeze and we have never had an accident in the house.
- Josh Ware - November 19, 2016
I have been working “Hank” on live bird for about 3 weeks. He is not off the check cord and we worked him again on live birds this past weekend. Here is is pointing a bird by scent. We also have been shooting them over him and he has been great. He has had no fear of the gun at all. I also have him for the most part retrieving the birds we are working him with.
- Richard Smith - September 7, 2016
It has taken some time to potty train but she is getting the hang of it. She is also making progress on not biting and not jumping up on people. She is so loving and warm and we are having a ball working with her. She sleeps in a kennel in the garage and goes down without even a whimper. Very smart, very loving and kind. Mornings are wild. She has so much energy it wears us out until about noon. Loving it. She is the most loving little thing and she has been a pure joy.
- Mark Hurst - June 26, 2016
Chris named our little girl Penny and she is wonderful doing well and very loving. I have attached some photos and hope you keep us posted on upcoming litters. You never know we may have to get another– darn. Hope all is well. Thank you again for the wonderful dog.
- Ann Zumo - June 16, 2016
Asta (purple girl) is doing great! She only cried for a few minutes on the way home. 6.5 hours! She learned her name and was basically house broken in one day! She is a perfect model of a vizsla puppy! High energy, playful, and cuddles all the time! The vet says she is strong and healthy! She said no way to the crate, but has been a perfect pup sleeping in the bed! Her new nickname is “Sharky” because she’s all teeth! She has an incredible point/stalk! It’s so fun to watch! She sleeps like a rubber chicken!
Update October 7th, 2016: I just wanted to give you an update on Asta. She’s doing great. She has been through two rounds of training. She knows about 15 commands. She is so well behaved in public, either at stores or just hanging out on Main Street Bozeman that people comment “that is the littlest vizsla I have ever seen!” I love correcting them that she is little because she is still a puppy! She likes to run and sleep under the covers! Next up for her will be off-leash training.
- Jessica Rupp - June 14, 2016
Holly is doing really really well! We love her so much, we can’t imagine life without her. She’s such a quick learner, very smart girl! She’s snuggly, affectionate, playful and very obedient for such a young girl. We’ve worked with her a lot, and have had help from a great trainer at different times (Astrid Smith). Most people, including our vet, can’t believe she’s only 7 months old because she’s so well-behaved and calm. She definitely has a lot of energy, but understands when she needs to be calm. She knows lots of commands and tricks, and also plays fetch with us everyday. She’s getting pretty consistent about bringing the ball back! She loves to tease our kids by taking their outside-toys and letting them chase her, it’s truly hilarious! Anyway, just wanted to update you. Hope all is well!
Update July 8, 2016: We’ve taken her fishing a couple of times and she loves loves loves to swim! She’ll play fetch with whatever we throw into the water. She loves the barn too. She is just the best, we love her so much! Everyone loves her! I’m pretty sure we’ll get another vizsla within a couple of years.
- Kristi Torsak - May 25, 2016
We are very excited about Koda’s puppies. This will be our third vizsla. Currently we have Lucy who will be turning three this summer and who is Nash’s daughter and your Pennie’s sister. Thanks again for producing such wonderful dogs. We have loved Lucy and she has become one of our family.
- Aaron Robinson - May 4, 2016
Ria turns 3 in a few months. She is a 50lb bundle of joy and energy. We and our kids love her.
- Dilip Nair - April 2, 2016
Jed is adjusting well and growing up fast. He likes the snow and is doing great. He has taken to search work and is very smart.
- Tammy Halstead - February 20, 2016
Just wanted to let you know we’re in love with this pup (Bentley!) and couldn’t be happier. He’s fearless, fast and very smart.
- Phil James - January 3, 2016
Molly, our Vizsla pup we adopted from you, is doing GREAT! She is an amazing mix of high energy play and LOVE! She enjoys our 2 acres and spends sun up to sun down outside. We have taught her to fetch, swim and she loves to play frisbee. She is agile and does great with other dogs and people of all ages. She has been a WONDERFUL addition to our family. We all adore her and can’t remember what life was like without her. We celebrated her b-day in Sept and just this week celebrated having her a year. Everyone that meets Molly loves her. If you need a reference we are more than happy to provide one. Please stay in touch.
- Lauren Carter - November 15, 2015
Our boy is doing really well. We have a dog park at our neighborhood park here in Provo and he loves to go and see all the other dogs. He seems to love playing with the other Vizslas, German pointers, great danes, and pitbulls the most. They play long and hard like he does and have tons of matching energy. His favorite thing to do is grab something and entice all the dogs to chase after him for it. He seems a little weary of German Shepherds for some reason. Everyone who meets him says how handsome he is and what a lover. We are still working on not jumping up on people. He has gotten much better about it though. Every other Vizsla we meet is a good head smaller than him. He’s just about a year and a half now and he is almost 70 pounds! You sold us a mutant Vizsla! LOL. Our kids love to tackle him and run around the couches playing chase. He is a patient boy and although he plays rough with the older boys he tip toes around the baby. He and our baby were sharing dog food the other day. Yuck! He has loads of energy which can be a handful sometimes but luckily he was very easy to crate train and that saves us (and him lol) some days. He really has become a part of the family. I have 4 sons including the dog, and they are all balls of energy and love. Thanks for checking in!!!
- Ada Asuao - November 12, 2015
Our pup is doing fine. He is a very loving and affectionate dog. As a matter fact I don’t believe I’ve ever had a more affectionate dog. He has been a great family dog and shows a lot of progress as a pointer. Currently working on studying him to the gun and some live bird training is right around the corner.
- Aaron Jonke - November 11, 2015
Ella is just wonderful. Her temperament is ideal. She is kind, tender, sweet and very silly. She’s charming, funny, and SO SMART! She points on birds and loves to chase rabbits and she runs through the dessert like the happiest dog in the world. She’s just beautiful and we get compliments on her everywhere we go. Thanks so much for choosing this amazing girl to be part of our family.
Update November 24, 2016: Ella is doing so well! She’s about 23 inches at her shoulders and weighs between 49 and 52 pounds, depending on how much hiking we’re doing. She’s a happy, loving, and wicked smart girl and we can’t imagine our life without her. Thanks again!
- Holly Palser - November 11, 2015
Our Vizsla, Remington is doing great! She has been the happiest addition to our family. We just adore her. She is our first Vizsla and have fallen in love with the breed. We cannot thank you enough for enriching our family. My brother met Remington when we first brought her home and he loved her so much he adopted a male Vizsla named Wrigley. It turns out that Remington and Wrigley have the same Father, Nash. So our Vizslas are half brother and sister. They are a hoot when we get them together. They both play hard and love hard. Thank you again! We adore our Vizsla!
- Megan & Ryan Holm - November 10, 2015
Our Penny is doing well. She is a happy little house dog. She thinks she is one of the kids. She is getting a little chubby, as the kids keep feeding her treats and snacks. She attended doggy school and knows over a dozen commands. My favorite is “heel.” The kids like a command that we made up, called “check by.” This means she has to stay by that kid and keep him company. This is good for when they are scared or lonely, or just want her company. She is a good little hiking and walking companion and a great watch dog. To say the least, we love her.
- Tiffani Robinson - November 10, 2015
Emma is very healthy and energetic. She is trained to stay sit shake down fetch drop leave it. She can catch frisbee s in the air. She is trained to close the door after going out to potty and coming back in. She fetches my husbands socks for him. She loves to laze in the sun. And when we play games as a family she sits on a chair and watches. She loves going camping. Playing in the water. She is a natural at bird hunting. We love our Vizsla.
- Patty Phillip - November 9, 2015
We are sure enjoying our dog Riley. He is over a year-old now (from the June 2014 Litter). Riley loves being around other dogs.
- Janet Anderson - November 6, 2015
Kadee is doing wonderfully. She is a treasure. However, she is spoiled rotten (must be bad breeding!). Everyone that sees her says she is beautiful.
- Chris Harr - November 6, 2015
Our vizsla is doing great, we named her Daisy and she is a fabulous, and loving little girl. She is doing a good job of keeping the old males in shape by constantly insisting they play with her and get some exercise.
- Kevin Hooker - November 4, 2015
Ellie is doing great, she is not overly large, and she weighs 44 LBS and is very active. She is very tolerant of all people, animals and very well mannered. Except for the occasionally counter surfing, which she does with such grace. LOL. She was late to swim, but now she loves it and even dives under water for sticks. We have not had any medical issues with her, except when she ate some moose poop out in the wild, and ended up with bad diarrhea and feeling unwell. Otherwise she is awesome. Thanks again for our Amazing Ellie Bishop! We love her to pieces and can’t imagine our life without her.
Update November 24, 2016: Our Ellie Bishop is doing awesome, she is so well mannered and we have no problem leaving her out of her crate when we are away from the home for a few hours. She is the best dog we have ever owned. She is spoiled and sleeps in the bed with us, and spends many days hiking, playing and running outside all the time. She is part of our family and we love her so much.
- Stephanie Francelj - November 3, 2015
Our Vizsla is doing great, We absolutely love her! She has a good drive with nose to the ground.
- LaDean May - November 3, 2015
Hello Andrew, I hope all is well for you! Oh man we love our little boy but he sure is a turd! Not a moments rest at the Jones household. And though we have just completed our first round of puppy training at calling all dogs, we will require more. We have sure spoiled Kodi and he sleeps between Brian and I. We are fools- but we adore him! Thank you for taking such good care of him. Tell your cute little girl hello!
- Jennifer Jones - January 20, 2015
I thought I would give you and update on Ellie! She is doing great, house training is going very well. Or only issue right now is trying to curb her cravings on biting our fingers and toes. Hopefully with time she will grow out of this phase. 😁 Thank you again! We absolutely love her to pieces. She is also sleeping in our bed at night— spoiled I guess. Sincerely Stephanie
- Stephanie Francelj - November 13, 2014
Just wanted to send and update on our milee we got from you!!! What a joy she is to have in our lives! She loves to swim, hunt birds, play catch and go for four wheeler rides!! She is so much fun 🙂
- Kelsey Bigelow - October 29, 2014
We sure love our Ruby and feel like we are pretty darn lucky. Having never raised a puppy before, we had some tough weeks but never gave up on her and now she is a delight most of the time. 🙂 She has such a great temperament and we love her energy level! Thank you for such a great dog!
- Steve Call - October 20, 2014
Our dog Pete came from you, and turned 3 this September. He has been far more eager to please and thus, much easier to train than our last Vizsla, which did not come from your blood lines. Last fall my youngest son took his first pheasant over Pete’s point, It was a first for both dog and boy and I’m not sure who was more hooked on hunting with that particular bird – the boy or the dog. That one truly lit this dogs fire and he has become a hunt’n fool ever since. This dogs interest, drive and ability to cover ground are something to behold all that and he has turned out to have a wonderful temperament as well. I’m sending along a pic of him as a 2 yr old doing what he does a good part of the day – locked up on point on some poor hapless tweety bird or robin that happens along into our back yard. (he spends a lot of time on point) The rest of his day is spent hoping to be a lap dog and doing what I assume most other Vizslas do best – RUNNING! In a couple of weeks we’ll see how he does with chuckers in Nevada, those little bandits tend to make bird dogs tired and crazy.
- Rod Maxfield - October 09, 2014
Floyd is doing great! He’s got a very sweet personality. My vet said he has the best personality of all of the puppy Vizslas she has seen. She said most of them that she sees are ‘nervous’, but he is more Lab like. Floyd didn’t like being compared to a Lab 🙂 He is afraid of nothing! Sirens, guns, kids, cars, loud construction equipment. Nothing scares him – they’re all just new things to learn about. I think this is mostly due to socialization, as he has been everywhere and is in new situations daily, but have to believe at least some of it is the breeding. On our trip from Benson, he found the crate and crawled in before we made it to Bear Lake. So, crate training was ‘free’, and housebreaking was nearly painless. It made the 4000 miles that he spent in a car the first two weeks we had him enjoyable. Of course, keeping him out of the car now is a little difficult 🙂 Thanks again, couldn’t be happier. He’s going to need a little brother in a year of so, so keep me up to date on litters.
- Matt - September 30, 2014
Hello Andrew and DeAnna. I wanted to spend a moment or two updating you on Jordan (Nordeen)! Jordan fits right in with our family and has been a constant source of laughter. She is thriving at almost 20 lbs already and long/lanky! She is a quick learner and watches EVERYTHING. She has no fear and we are even more convinced we may try agility with her as she has taken to the play equipment at the park, complete with slides. She loves being a complete lap dog:). Thank you for allowing Jordan to be in our lives. We look forward to each and every moment….
- Jeff Nordeen - September 26, 2014
Our vizsla (Juno) is doing very well. Growing fast and socializing well with our lab. She has proven to have a good nose and is very adventurous. Not much makes her nervous…every morning she wanders into our pasture and says good morning to our cows. I get far more worried than she does. Every evening we play a game where I hide a pheasant wing and then bring her into the yard to find it. She seems to have a good desire to hunt for it and always ends up finding the wing. She is just starting to take several mile hikes with me in the mountains and is constantly vearing off the beaten path with her nose to the ground looking for “wings”.
So far we have been very pleased with her and look forward to see what she is capable of over the next 12+ months. We’ll keep you updated as she continues to grow and progress.
- Stacy Betts - September 25, 2014
Just thought I would send you an update on Red. He is such an awesome dog. His nickname is Albert Einstein because of how smart he is. Thanks so much for such an awesome and fun dog. If you want to go hunt at my family’s farm in Idaho just give us a call we have been seeing tons of pheasants.
Thanks so much, Stran.
- Stran Davis - June 04, 2014
Milee is a wonderful smart and loving dog. We couldn’t have been happier!!!
- Kelsey Bigelow - January 07, 2013
We are VERY happy with our puppy. He has been so much fun so far. He is learning to be crate trained, and although he has had a few accidents in the house, he hasn’t had any in his crate, so I hope I am doing ok and doing the right things. He is also learning some basic obedience things like avoiding chewing, and biting, and jumping up on the kids. He is actually doing A LOT better in those regards. Other than that, the only other things I have been working on is some basic leash training, teaching him to stay and come, and playing fetch with a tennis ball (which he can’t quite fit in his mouth yet, but he can snag the furry coating with his teeth and he retrieves it pretty well).
He absolutely LOVES the fields. He is noticeably much more bold about crashing through the tall grass and alfalfa than my previous dog (the shorthair) was at that age. He seems right at home. I ordered some pheasant wings to try to get him used to those smells also, so maybe next year he will be ready to give some hunting a try.
Again, we are very pleased with Satch. Thanks again.
- Dave Ryan - November 2, 2012
We named our puppy Sir Rusty Axel Grease! Haha but we call him Axel for short. He is an amazing dog. I’ve never had a dog before and it is really great how he has bonded with my husband and me. I can’t imagine our home without him. We live in Eagle Mountain and he loves running through all the hills and brush we have. I can’t wait to take him to the lake this summer. Axel is a little sneak though… Haha he’s so smart. He’s always trying to get up on our bed in the middle of the night and squeeze in between my husband and me. Silly dog. Thank you so much for him! I’m glad his parents are doing well. They made one great puppy! 🙂
