More About Buddy
Buddy is affectionate, smart, loyal and at times a cheeky and entertaining character. He is actually a big 'sook'. He still gets excited like a puppy when he sees you but settles down after a pat and bringing you a gift.
Vizsla's are loving, referred to as 'velcro' dogs because they want to be with you due to the strong bond they create with their owners. Vizslas make superb hiking, biking, swimming and jogging companions. They are fairly easy to train, and make a fine addition to active, outdoorsy families.
Vizslas are verbal dogs and make “talking” noises. Buddy is also a good listener and is usually a happy dog.
Buddy is rather timid and can be easily frightened or startled e.g. fireworks, rough kids or approaching him while asleep. This may result in a nip but can be avoided in the hands of the right owner. If he instigates attention then he is fine.
It is best that Vizslas live in a home where someone is around a lot, whether it is a farm, in a family with one stay at home parent or active retirees. He will thrive in a medium to large secure and interesting yard or acreage. His owners will need to be active and looking for a dog to be a companion.
Buddy needs a home where he is welcome to be involved with family activities and is the only permanent dog in the home.
He will not suit homes where residents are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Yes but may react to another anti social dog.
Usually but as Buddy can be easily startled we recommend no kids. Loud noises frighten Buddy especially crying babies.
High - Buddy will run and run and then likes to sleep for the rest of the day. You cannot miss a day.
How is this dog on a lead?
Like most dogs he is ok unless distracted but is generally responsive to commands.
How is this dog off the lead?
Buddy's recall is good but not reliable.
No. He may alert you to something strange.
Not usually however, if he is confined while frightened e.g. fireworks, he may scratch a door in order to get out so he can be with his owners.
Tolerance to being alone.
He is fine alone as long as he is in a space where he feels safe. e.g. he will get upset if left in a confined laundry all night.
Being around adults, going for a walk, run and a swim especially at the beach. He loves a cuddle, a scratch and sun baking. Buddy enjoys playing with his owners or other dogs he is familiar with. He likes to chase a ball but does not always bring it back. Treats are a favourite. Buddy also gets great enjoyment coming to give you a cuddle in the morning too.
Fire works, being overwhelmed by other anti social dogs and young kids that are loud and rough. Does not like the rain, wind or cold.
