|Welcome to MATTUCCI'S VIZSLAS !
Thank-you for your interest in Mattucci's Vizslas!
A Vizsla is a wonderful choice for a canine companion and one that many
of our new owners find are impossible to live without. The Velcro "V's" are
very loyal, friendly, and highly intelligent dogs. The Vizsla breed is a
member of the A.K.C. Sporting Group and considered to be a high energy,
but easily trained companion. It should be noted that this breed DOES
require attention, regular daily exercise, and consistency with training in
order to become a wonderful family member and constant companion!!
Our mission is to breed only dogs that are able to combine sound health
with outstanding temperaments, and most importantly, illustrate the A.K.C.
We always recommend that prospective new owners spend some time
educating themselves on the breed and there is an array of resources
available. Our favorite reference book is the Versatile Vizsla by Marion
Coffman which can be purchased through Amazon. There is also a
wonderful website called the Ingle and Mead's Vizsla Encyclopedia. It is
also a great source of information about this breed. We also find that the
Animal Planet's Dogs 101 link can be very beneficial as well. Please watch
the video on Vizslas.
We do actively show our dogs. One of our girls, "Raisen" was shown at
Westminster in 2006 and her granddaughter, Grand Champion Mattucci's
Dash of Paprika is following in her footsteps and was our first homebred
champion and Grand Champion!! Our newest champion, Ch. Mattucci's
Palinka of Brookview Elgin finished his championship at the tender age of
one year old. We are especially proud of our pups many owners who
have also entered and finished our pups in conformation, obedience,
agility,and rally, as well as, NAVHDA and Field/Hunt venues.
Healthy foundation dogs are a priority for us and all of our dogs have their
OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) clearances and are free of hip
and elbow dysplasia.
It should be noted that we do NOT place our pups with their new "forever
homes" before 8 weeks after birth. We do require a non-refundable
deposit down to HOLD a puppy. Show prospect puppies are occasionally
available with each situation being reviewed individually and contractual
obligations outlined in writing. With your purchase of one of our "babies"
you will receive a beautiful, healthy, vet-checked & innoculated Vizsla baby
with complete health records and a written sales contract. We also have a
LIFETIME return policy stating should it be necessary that you can no
longer keep or care for your Vizsla you MUST return the dog to us, the
breeders, or we will assist you in placing the puppy/dog in an approved
home which we have screened. (Again, this return policy remains for the
life of the dog!!)
It is our intention, as responsible breeders, to place each of our puppies
into a loving, caring lifetime home where they will live a full and contented
life as 4-legged members of the family. Most importantly, we offer lifetime
assist with your Q's or concerns about your Vizsla.
