According to American Kennel Club, Vizslas are known for their intelligence, curiosity, and energy. They're part of the sporting group and excel at field and hunting tests, agility, dock diving, and more.
Vizslas can find themselves in trouble if they aren't "working." They enjoy training and the attention they receive from it. So when it comes to training your Vizsla, it's best to include consistent and positive training methods during sessions. It's important to keep in mind that Vizslas are a sensitive breed, so rewards and ongoing socialization can help build up their confidence.
Here is Buddy and Maggie's story!
Buddy and Maggie are both Vizslas who live with their owner Chris, in the sunshine state. They enjoy running and playing outside the most but also enjoy the occasional cuddle. Buddy and Maggie mean a lot to Chris and his family, so much so that they even have a routine to help tuck in their human siblings at bedtime.
Why did Buddy and Maggie's parents contact Invisible Fence?
Before living in Florida, Buddy, Maggie, and their family lived in Maryland which is where they were first introduced to Invisible Fence. Buddy and Maggie love to be outside and Chris didn't want to take that away from them. However, the siblings would often wander off too far. Chris knew they needed a solution to help keep Buddy and Maggie inside their yard but wasn't sold on a physical fence. After some research, Chris contacted Invisible Fence to move forward with an electric fence.
Chris, Buddy, and Maggie loved their Invisible Fence but then the family moved to Florida. Once settled in their new home, they knew exactly how they wanted to keep Buddy and Maggie safe so they contacted Invisible Fence of Florida for another electric fence.
How did Invisible Fence of the Florida help keep Buddy and Maggie in his yard?
Chris worked with Invisible Fence of the Florida to learn more about Invisible Fence. They looked over the different types of outdoor containment and made recommendations based on Buddy and Maggie's needs. The Boundary Plus® Line of Outdoor Solutions protects pets from chasing cars, roaming the neighborhood or running off - which is just what Buddy and Maggie needed.
"It is the best thing we ever bought. You never have to worry again!" - Chris
