Head down to or call down to Black Point Pheasant Club. They are close to you, are a pheasant hunt club, and you may get good results there. Best of luck.

Good luck. V's are hard to find. My uncle was on a waiting list for well over a year and ended up getting a 1 year old rescue. This dog ended up being a great dog though!

Vizslas are common in SoCal. Contact Dave Aubrey at the San Diego Chapter of NAVHDA. He breeds and tests them. His dogs are nice and I'm sure he can tell you of other lines he likes, possibly in NorCal. There are at least several other breeders around. There is also a national Vizsla Club of America and several affiliated state clubs. Look for a pup from lines bred by hunters for hunters who have the test scores and titles to prove it, especially the parents. There are a lot of AKC pet/show lines out there and I would avoid those. If you can find some breeders who register, breed and test their dogs in the Hungarian or German registries, your chances of getting the best increase substantially (because of the breeding/testing requirements). Also, make sure you get a pup from lines that have clearances for hip dysplasia (I have seen a few dysplastic Vs) and any other diseases or conditions common to the breed. Good dogs are where you find them. Don't be afraid to spend a day or two driving or spend some money on airfare to get the right pup. You will be spending the next 10-15 years together. I have flown in my last two pups as have several friends. Its easy. Insist on a nonstop flight. cool weather or nightime is best. You want a breeder who keeps the litter together until 10 weeks - no earlier than eight weeks

I'm in Napa, and my wife breeds Vizsla's. We have a litter on the ground right now, but all are spoken for. If you need info, My wife is on the board of the Vizsla Club of Northern CA. Any questions you have I will be happy to answer. http://brewskiepups.blogspot.com/ This is the blog of the puppies my wife has up for them

x2 on this. He is a great guy and is vary passionate about his dogs. I have been to his place and if i get another Vizsla it will be from him.
