breeding

Breeding is the most important factor in the pursuit of a class bird dog.
You cannot teach style, drive, nose, range, or heart.

Josh is committed to breeding high class bird dogs. This means stylish, intense bird dogs with power and stamina. Breeding is the most important factor in the pursuit of a class bird dog. Dogs are simply born with the correct tools or they are not. You cannot teach style, drive, nose, range, or heart. It is our job to create the environment for success.

Josh's breeding program is based upon over a decade of observing and competing in the NVA and VCA National Championships as well as extensive pedigree research. The information he has gotten from attending, watching, and competing in these events has been invaluable to his breeding program. All of Josh's dogs have high bird drive, great noses, exceptional style, and are animated and attractive on the ground, with excellent athletic ability. He also breeds specifically for a high head and tail on point. Moreover, his dogs are independent but biddable, and hunt objectives intelligently. These powerful bird dogs are equipped to go the distance in big, rugged wild bird country. The dog does the heavy lifting, not the hunter.

Vizslas out of Josh’s breeding program successfully compete against Pointers, Setters, Shorthairs, and Brittanys. Their foundation for success is tied not only to natural ability, but also to health and temperament. It is impossible to have a class bird dog without great health and solid temperament. A class bird dog should be a great family companion. All of his pups are sold with contracts. Part of this contract is a health guarantee. Josh will replace your pup if it has any congenital defects with the next available pup or dog, or refund your money. (Contract available upon request.)
