  1. Great post, though MadDogge would disagree with your opinions on “light on feet”, he’s more elephant in the room style, haha. Joking aside, a Vizsla is perfect for those that never want to stop moving, like ever. They are puppy level high energy time ten for their entire lives. Ours has learned to lay down for a bit, but within minutes he’s back playing with toys. or chasing MadCat. I enjoyed your suggestions!


  2. I have a Choc Lab and it’s true he loves a run and can’t be kept away from water. At all! But he won’t jump any height and tires after running more than about 6 miles so I was surprised to see the breed at No.1 Perhaps Dudley’s just a bit lazy…..
