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 5 - Feeding and Exercising the Vizsla

Feeding and exercising are so closely connected in this breed that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. Good feeding and good exercise will produce excellent condition. Whether your Vizsla is a pet, a show dog or used as a gundog, he needs the very best.
A healthy Vizsla must be alert and lively, well muscled and lean. He must have no excess fat. Since his coat is so short, every ounce he takes off or puts on shows. This can certainly present a problem, for some Vizslas can be picky eaters and others never seem satisfied. When the dog is standing, neither the back bone nor the ribs should show, but if both show slightly when he is bending that gives an indication that he is looking right.....
