We established Smoothbore Vizslas to promote the Hungarian Vizsla in its original role as a versatile, all-purpose gun dog. To that end we train for and test in the various tests offered by the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA). Training for each of the test levels offered allows us to evaluate our own dogs potential as a puppy, and grit and trainability as an adult. NAVHDA requires a significant amount of water work, and if desired fur can be used in part of the tests. This organization helps us maintain the VERSATILE hunting capabilities of this unique breed.
