Hungarian Vizslas are very sociable dogs, and are friendly to dogs and humans alike. They tend to be goofy and very affectionate. It is a given they will make you laugh - through their puppy clumsiness and over-excited moves, which can look like break dancing on all four paws!
They are very expressive dogs, who will tell you about their feelings readily. They have a tendency to protect their pack and like to alert their owners with their seal-like bark.
Vizslas thrive best on praise and acknowledgment from owners who give them lots of exercise but also a couch or lap to snuggle up on when it's cold. Sun bathing is one of their favourite activities, and cold weather is definitely not their friend.
As this breed needs two to three hours of daily exercise through running, agility dog sport or play with other dogs, the Vizsla is not the ideal dog for everybody. But if you love exercise and activity, this is the dog for you.
