About the Author

Gay Gottlieb was born in Gloucestershire and spent her formative years in the country. She went to school in England and Switzerland and lived in Paris for some years. She welcomed her first Vizsla dog, Sh Ch Waidman Remus, in the early 1970s, shortly followed by a bitch, Sh Ch Galfrid Sofia at Russetmantle. Over the following four decades she studied and nurtured the breed dedicating her time and love to this most beautiful animal.

Chapter 12 - Progress in the Shooting Field

Originally the Vizsla was bred as a hunting dog, to find food for his master. Then he had to find game for hunters working with falcons or nets. Finally, with the advent of the gun, the Vizsla became a gundog. He must not be thought of purely as a bird dog (as in America) since, if properly trained, he must hunt fur or feather on command. In Hungary, the word 'madar' tells him to run high headed in search of birds and 'nyul' warns him that he must hunt rabbits and other ground game. As an all-purpose gundog, the Vizsla is rapidly gaining popularity in this country and many are being exported to the continent, America, Australia, Africa and New Zealand to people who wish to use them as gundogs.
