The Vizsla, a sociable and clever dog, demands a lot of physical exercise and human connection. They are prone to separation anxiety as well as a dread of loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks. Because of their sensitive and physically demanding nature, they need an owner who is willing to put in the exercise with them, and who is willing to have a dog that is always by their side.
Given their hunting heritage, Vizslas don't fare well in kennels and prefer to be with their owners in the outdoors. They are quite clever, and they require activities to keep them engaged in order to avoid harmful behaviors like biting and digging. They want to please their owners, and as long as they have an owner who is willing to put in the work, they will be rewarded with an incredible dog.
