Our Breeding Philosophy
I am an advocate of the “natural”. Don’t get me wrong, I am not against “western medicine” for my family or my dogs when it is needed. My life has been spared on SEVERAL occasions by the expertise of highly trained doctors. And my dogs have also benefited from the knowledge of our wonderful vet! But that said, if there is a natural way to help strengthen and prevent issues then, I like to try that first.
I believe a raw diet IF DONE CORRECTLY is the best thing you can do for your dog. I believe in vaccinating as a puppy, but then not overdoing it. I believe there are natural ways to fight parasites in our pets. And I believe following a more natural route where possible will build their immune system. There is growing research showing that all the chemical agents we are putting in our pets are actually impacting their immune systems and leading to degenerative diseases and cancers. And I believe that early alteration or “fixing” of our pets is leading to many of these same problems. These beliefs are the foundation of our personal pet ownership. But, you do not have to subscribe to the “natural” as I do. We strive to care for the puppies that we breed so they are ready to seamlessly step into the “natural” or the more “normal” home. Your tendency to lean one way or the other will not influence the decision of whether or not to place a puppy with you. That decision is based on how good of a match the vizsla breed is for you. These beliefs are simply the basis of our 1 year vs. 3 year health guarantee. And I bring them up as an explanation of the reasoning for such. And also to help educate those who feel similarly but don’t know how to make it “work” for their dog. I believe we are all trying to do what we feel is best for our pets that we love!
