My daughter is very happy with her French Brittney! Very playful with the kids and has pointed a few quail in training and 1 hen! Seems to have an excellent noseÖ will try to follow my pointer in heavy cover however the Britt hasnít mastered the art of hunting heavy cover yet! She is quite adapt at light cover and stays very close! Iíve been impressed by her so far! We plan to take her and the oldest granddaughter out to the bird farm in February my Christmas present to them!


A Wirehaired vizsla is a separate registered breed than the (smooth) vizsla! But yes many generations back it had German wirehaired pointers bred with the vizsla! We have had several (smooth) vizslas in the past and my daughter had interest in a wirehaired vizsla after we saw one several years back and I did the research for her! She ultimately found a nice French Brittany mostly due to price and availability!
Wirehaired Vizsla info sent you a PM

Is that a GWP Vizsla cross?

I love my French Brittany great dog

Very cool

Mine has energy for days heís pointed a few song birds in the field I run and train him in
And looks to have a great nose
Every time the wind shifts his nose goes up and heads into it
He ranges pretty far out but his recall is solid and I have a gps collar to keep track of him it gives me a little piece of mind when heís out of sight
Iím hoping to get him and my 10 year old grandson and my 2 daughters out to cook canyon sometime soon
Smartest dog Iíve ever owned very trainable and shuts off his crazy energy indoors
I'm your dam tour guide Arnie please donít wonder off the dam tour.
Take as many dam pictures as you want ....
Are there any dam questions ..

How about a pointing lab?
My current lab is half Tiger Mountian pointing lab. She will point if birds are holding within 2-3í but Iíve never reinforced her pointing abilities as I used to primarily waterfowl hunt. Sheís 6 now and Iím curious if she could be trained to hold point at distance. Her drive is so insane though I doubt it could be accomplished. Mostly what I have seen labs donít have that rock solid point but I could be convinced.

Take her back to John at TMPL for some training. I have a TM pup and a Brittany going there when John gets back to training this spring. A pointer and a Lab are a good combination too though.
