name is Katalin Varga,
stockbreeder engineer with university degree, the grounder and owner of kennel Vadászfai.
I got my first Hungarian Vizsla 1973 as a gift from my parents. She was from kennel Zsabófai, owner Lászlóné Páczay. Aunty Irén kept very close contact with all of those who had dogs from her and we, the owners, became good friends too. I became deeply effected and influenced by the time we spent together and I became totally devoted to the breed.
In 1976 I had my first litter, sire Mátai Lurkó, dame Zsabófai Fátyolka Léda.
With Léda I not only went to shows but also to hunting and there I experienced what a wonderful working dog the Hungarian Vizsla is. They are always ready to act, they have an extreamly high working capacity and show tremendous love to their owners. Those are the reasons I love this breed for and became deeply involved in the breeding.
The results of these last 30 years:
5 x gold awarded master of breeder, 15 International Champions, 1 International Working Champion, 11 Grand Champions, and many Hungarian Champions.

First time we had a breeder's group was in 1997 in Nagykanizsa and we won the best breeder's group. Later we won several times with our groups. In 1998 in Budapest we got the second place of the Breeding's Superprize.
My greatest joy is that in 2003 we succeeded to win even the first prize of the Breeding's Superprize.
I believe that the Hungarian Vizsla is first of all a hunting dog, and that rules my breeding program. It is extreamely important that they have steady temperament, wellbuild body, excellent working capacity, beautiful head and the intelligent look of the eyes, the most important feature of the Hungarian Vizsla.
Most of my dogs have the original, light yellow colour.
It is extreamely important, that my Vizslas are sound and healthy. That's the reason that I, since 1989, only use dogs whos hips are X-rayed and got free hips in my breeding.
