Vizsla

Vizsla

The Viszla is a dog breed originating in Hungary, known for being athletic and loyal companions. The breed is also called Hungarian Pointer. The Viszla generally weighs between 40 and 66 lbs, and requires a Large PlexiDor Dog Door.

This is a natural hunter equipped with an excellent nose and outstanding trainability. They are lively, gentle mannered, and affectionate, but also fearless and protective when need be. Some people call them “velcro dogs” because of their loyalty and affection.

The ancestors of the Vizsla are assumed to have been hunters accompanying Magyars to central Europe over a thousand years ago. The breed is depicted in etchings that date back to the 10th century, and manuscripts from the 14th century.

A Vizsla thrives on attention, exercise, and interaction. They are often vocal. They sing along with the radio, and cry when they feel neglected.

The PlexiDor Large is the right size dog door for a Vizsla.
