Breeding Vizslas for Conformation, Temperament and Hunting in Elizabeth, Colorado


After a disastrous bird hunting trip, Roy decided he had to have his own well-trained bird dog. As luck would have it, Marty and Roy discovered their first Vizsla, “Brick”, in January 2002. They trained him and Brick completed his AKC Championship at nine months with five consecutive Major wins including Best of Breed. Brick went on to win Best of Breed at the 2003 Eukanuba National Dog Show when he was two years old. Brick finished his Master Hunter title in 2005. In May 2006 he was ranked #3 Vizsla nationally. In 2008, he won first place Stud Dog at the Vizsla Club of America National Dog Show.

Following Brick, we imported Riika and Kaari from Finland. Riika’s mother and grandmother have earned advanced hunting titles in Finland. Kaari’s mother is an accomplished agility dog. Owning Vizslas has been a great retirement hobby. Marty and Roy's lives have been changed for the better.
