We wanted to take a minute to write you to tell you how over joyed we are with our new Vizsla, Remington. He has been an absolute joy to our family, and we really wonder why we waited so long. But that is really where the story begins, and I have to say that the two of you were a big part of why we feel so fortunate to have a dog of this caliber and quality.
We had been considering another dog for a few years, but due to our work schedules, our children’s ages and the busy life with travels, we had been putting the decision off. We had considered a Vizsla in the past, as well as another Lab, which we had owned several years ago, and had to give up due to an overseas assignment that would not have allowed our great hunting dog to have had any quality of life. We were again considering a Lab, but we had a pointing dog in our minds as well. When we agreed on a Vizsla, the challenge only started, as we knew that we really wanted to find the right dog, in personality, size, color and hunting capability. These are also not the most common breed, so the search took us to many kennels in order to not only find a dog, but find the right one.
Our experience with Peter gave both my wife and I an immediate comfort that we had found the right people to deal with for our pet. Peter actually interviewed us to insure one of his dogs would end up in the right home. I had every confidence that you would have been happy to turn us down had we not had the right home, property size, time and life style to handle a Vizsla. The questions and time that we both took to understand the pedigree, the size, the capability and the personality of his pups was good for both parties, and we soon came to the realization that we had a match.
Our initial experience was also phenomenal with Remington. Although he cried a little on our trip back to Michigan, he slept through the first night and ever since. He never had any accidents in his crate, and only a couple of minor ones that occurred when he got excited over a new person coming in and gushing over his great looks and personality. Remington is four months old now, is pointing at birds, and has all the makings of an excellent hunter. More importantly, he has become a family member, and just a great pet to have around !
Peter, I would recommend you to anyone looking for a Vizsla, and we would both be happy to talk to anyone who has questions about you, your dogs and our experience. Many thanks again, and we will keep in touch with pictures and news about Remington.
