Welcome to BlueMoon Vizslas!

About BlueMoon -
Our kennel name came about when someone said that dogs like Cali only come along once in a Blue Moon - and they are correct! We hope to cultivate the natural ability, drive and trainability that Cali exemplifies in our future dogs.

There is a litter being planned for 2013 - details to come as we get closer. Kae’s job as a veterinary technician causes her to be extremely vigilant about health testing and performance testing. There are plenty of good dogs out there - in order to breed a litter, we need to feel that the puppies produced will be excellent examples of the breed.

We believe that the Vizsla is more than a Dual Dog – it is a dog that can do anything: hunt, show, compete in obedience, be a pet or be a hiking buddy; therefore, we title our dogs in conformation - to demonstrate structural soundness, in field trials - to demonstrate range and ability to handle pressure, in hunt tests -to demonstrate birdiness and bidability, and in obedience -to demonstrate a good mind, bidability and ability to function outside of a bird field.

Health testing is important to us - we health test for hip/elbow dysplasia, cardiac function, CERF and thyroid function.

We participate actively in conformation, Rally Obedience, obedience, field trials and hunt tests. We are active in our local Vizsla club, where Kaemmerle serves as the membership chair. We are also members of the Vizsla Club of America.

Vizslas are a love story for us. We can’t imagine life without them – without the laughter, entertainment and enjoyment that they bring to us. They’re a special breed that loves to please, loves to be with their people (no matter what!) and loves to work – can’t ask for more than that from a dog.

Our dogs are all house dogs, and we spend most weekends training, hiking or camping with them. They sleep in our bedroom, go to coffee with us and often accompany us to work. They’re a part of the family, while also being competitive in many events. The “Velcro” dog personality of a Vizsla lends itself to them showing up in the bed (even though there are rules about that!), in the bathroom when you’re showering and ‘helping’ with cleaning and home repair projects.
