Learn about Wirehaired Vizslas Pet Insurance

As you already suspect, the Wirehaired Vizsla is a close cousin of Vizsla but they are different breeds. The major difference between the two breeds is their coat type. While Vizsla has a sleek coat, the Wirehaired Vizsla has a dense wiry coat. However, the two have the same color and are both medium-sized dogs.

The Wirehaired Vizsla is a bit taller and heavier than Vizsla; they stand 21.5 to 25 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh 45 to 65 pounds. Just like Vizsla, the Wirehaired Vizsla originated from Hungary. The breed was created by Hungarian hunters and falconers who needed a sturdier breed with a denser coat and the same versatility and drive as Vizsla. Unsurprisingly, the breed was created by crossing Vizslas with German wirehaired pointers.

WVs are wonderful energetic dogs that are equally useful. It is important to take out Wirehaired Vizslas pet insurance as soon as you purchase or adopt your dog.

Wirehaired Vizslas Pet Insurance News

A three-year-old Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla, Szinva, and his trainer and owner Tanya Gates from Yukon made history in 2016 as the dog won the trophy in 2016 North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA).

The exercise tests the dog’s ability to assist during a hunt. They are considered the most difficult exercise the association could offer. Interestingly, Szinva, scaled through and clinched the title.

By winning the distinguished title, Szinva became the first dog to earn the distinction from NAVHDA. Szinva has already earned titles nationally and internationally. Since Gates got the dog when he was just 8-weeks-old, her goal has been to complete the NAVHDA Invitational Test.

The dogs were required to complete a series of tests. In one of the tests, dead birds are shot out in what looks like a hunt. Two birds are sent into the water in different locations and the dog is expected to remember the location of the drawn duck and compose himself when the second duck is shot.

The dog was asked to retrieve and deliver the ducks to his owner in reverse order. Szinva performed excellently in the test and other tests and topped about 100 other dogs in the show.

Gates said she was overcome with joy when her dog was announced the winner. “… it is announced that my dog is a Versatile Champion. This is when I think it’s a good thing I am sitting down because I would have fainted otherwise. I am overcome by a rush of feelings – shock, bliss, and relief – we did it as a team!”, she said.
