The Hungarian Vizsla served its purpose in Hungary in the gain growing fields; its colour provided it an excellent camouflage when hunting the partridge and the hares. From the 18th century, their importance as a hunting dog has been increasing steadily. As early as the end of the 19th century, competitions for pointing dogs were organised in Hungary, in which Hungarian Vizslas participated with great success. In those days, other Gundog breeds most likely played an important part in the development of the breed.
The specific modern breeding started in 1920, as a result of which, the Hungarian Vizsla received recognition by the FCI in 1936.

The Hungarian Vizsla should have the following typical qualities. They must have an excellent nose, firmness on the point , be excellent at retrieving and have the determination to remain on the scent even when swimming, which they manifestly enjoys. They copes with difficult terrain as well as extreme weather conditions. As they are intended to be an efficient hunting dog then gun and game shyness, unwillingness to point and retrieve, as well a dislike of water are undesirable. Because of their easy going nature and their adaptability, their can easily be kept as a companion dog in the house.

This handsome, lean well-muscled dog has a good nature and is reliable with children and quickly adapts to family life.

Grooming- The coat of the Visla is short and dense making it easy to keep clean after a day out in the field. Any dead or loose hairs can be removed by using a rubber grooming mitt. Coat is greasy to the touch.

Exercise- The Vizsla requires plenty of exercise and needs to be kept active. They are best suited to the active country dwelling family although they will adapt to an urban lifestyle if given plenty of suitable exercise

Health- This breed is generally hardy but some can suffer from hip dysplasia, epilepsy and eye problems.
