Spring Training and Testing in Hungary, April 2018

We had a great time in our annual spring Zöldmáli Boot Camp. We had people coming from all over the World (Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Poland) to train our Zöldmáli dogs together, and than hunt test them on 3 levels in the end of the training. I very much appreciate for all the owners who came and trained with us! We worked hard, but it paid off. All dogs and handlers improved a lot. After the 5 days training, there were 3 levels of tests organized by the Shorthaired and Wirehaired Vizsla Club. The AV (Natural Ability Test), VAV (Hunting Aptitude Test on Field and Water) and the VMV (Field and Water Test). You can read about the test rules of...

Training in Serbia on wild partridge -preparing for the Field Trial season

Its sad, but true: in today's European Union, you hardly find enough wild birds (pheasants of partridges) to be able to train a pack of 12 dogs for Field Trials. So we had to travel over 600 km to Serbia, to get our dogs ready for the trialing season. This is our vacation I guess. While others go skiing or to wellness hotels, we walk 8-9 hours on the fields with the dogs, looking for partridges. And believe it or not, we enjoy it. Because the dogs love it, so we are happy. The terrain is usually very challenging for the dogs, they need to work hard and with big concentration, as partridges are tricky. We were very pleased with...

Best of Breed – Crufts 2014

And another historical moment for us was the Crufts 2014 Show in the UK, where Zöldmáli Huncut won the Best of Breed and CC title- the first ever foreign bred HWV to win this title. And there were 6 Zöldmális winning their classes, which itself is also a big achievement.
Training Courses

Training Courses

After a very successful Pointing Dog Seminar I was running last October in the Yukon, Canada, we continued our international training courses this year in the UK. The first one in spring became so successful, that we organized a shorter and a longer one late summer as well. We hope to be able to keep this going, and organize further UK HPR training days in the future. And our usual spring and summer trainings in Hungary took place as well, with quite an international group, as usual, people coming from Italy, Canada and the Netherlands as well.

Our trialing season of 2014

Our trialing season of 2014

This year, we had 5 juniors to train: Vihar, Panka, Spuri, Guppi and Bringa, and all of them accomplished their Natural Ability Tests (AV) with full scores, than the Hunting Aptitude Test (VAV), and all but Guppi (who was struggling with her heat cycle and hormones, so we postponed hers for the coming spring) passed the Field and Water Trial (VMV) in 1st prize- with this gaining an International Work Certificate. Spuri and Vihar passed the ÖTV as well (same as the HZP in Germany). So all the girls have proved their outstanding working qualities. In competitions, this year, we were competing with Zala and Lepke. Unfortunately in many competitions you can only participate with one dog, in others, max....
