Gércei-Vadász Magyar Vizsla Kennel
WORKING WITH THE MAGYAR VIZSLA
Creating a new website is a lot of work but leads sometimes to pleasant surprises. When drawing up the list of Gércei-Vadász vizslas which already have proven in the fields they really are pointing dogs I realized with pleasure that this list always gets longer. A better proof that we are on the right track does not exist.
The utility of field trials is in my opinion most clearly expressed in Article II.3 of the "General regulations for hunting competitions" of the Dutch Kennel Club "Raad van Beheer" which reads as follows (my translation): "the final goal of field trials is the selection of the best breeding stock thereby contributing to the responsible breeding of good hunting dogs allowing a fair hunting meanwhile preserving the specificities of the various hunting breeds".
For some thirty years I have seen all kinds of hunting competitions and I have been there as a participant too from time to time. Again and again I must say that, although nothing is wrong with their regulations, the way these competitions are judged is completely different from the way field trials are judged.
A score of 80 % of the possible points is at hunting competitions a rather low score.At field trials this score belongs almost to the exceptions and provides access to the highest level of qualification: the "excellent" score
In central Europe field trials for continental pointing dogs, except the competitions organized by the setter- and/or pointer clubs, are rather low in number.
On the other hand in western Europe the hunting competitions are rather few however there are enough field trials during spring and autumn.
The difference in mentality of hunters and especially the difference in the way of hunting in both parts of Europe explain few things.
With some pride and satisfaction we look at the following list of dogs born at Gérce since the start of our kennel in 1998 and already achieved good results in various kinds of hunting competitions. Although this is a significant number we can assure you that a much larger number of hunters have found in their Gércei-Vadász vizsla an ideal hunting companion.
And do not believe that vizslas which are successful in field trials are not good family dogs or pets. Almost all of the listed dogs are living permanently in the house. That this is even possible at Gérce is proven every day by my eleven vizslas.
