Like the Vizsla, Wirehaired Vizslas are very high energy, gentle-mannered, loyal, caring, and highly affectionate.
They quickly form close bonds with their owners, including children. They are quiet dogs, only barking if
necessary or if they are provoked.

They are natural hunters with an excellent ability to take training . Not only are they great pointers, but they are
excellent retrievers as well. They will retrieve on land and in the water, making the most of their natural instincts.
However, they must be trained gently and without harsh commands or strong physical correction, as they have
sensitive temperaments and can be easily damaged if trained too harshly (Gottlieb, 1992). Vizslas are excellent
swimmers and often swim in pools if one is available. Like all gun dogs, Vizslas require a good deal of exercise
to remain healthy and happy. Thirty minutes to an hour of exercise daily in a large off-leash area is optimal
(Coffman 1992).

The Wirehaired Vizsla thrives on attention, exercise, and interaction. It is highly intelligent, and enjoys being
challenged and stimulated, both mentally and physically. Vizslas that do not get enough attention and exercise
can easily become destructive or hyperactive. Under-stimulated Vizslas may also become depressed or engage
in obsessive-compulsive behaviours such as persistent licking (Coffman 1992). Vizslas are very gentle dogs that
are great around children. The Vizsla wants to be close to its owner as much of the time as possible. Many
Vizslas will sleep in bed with their owners if allowed, burrowing under the covers.
