We usually have two litters of Vizslas every year and have lots of current and past puppy pictures available at Lone Ridge Farm on Facebook. We also just had our first litter out of Shanty our GSD. Both Shanty and Anakin (the sire) have phenomenal temperaments and excellent family health history.
We breed dual type Vizslas, meaning we breed for conformational correctness and hunting ability, along with temperament and trainability. Our dogs are great family companions, competition partners, hunting companions, running buddies, and more.
Our puppies are used to handling by kids and adults, other dogs, introduced to louder noises, novel items, and more. We also take them on daily walks around the farm to introduce them to tall grass, wooded areas, natural dips, ditches, and hills. We introduce them to birds to evaluate bird desire start a foundation if you are looking for a hunting companion.
We spend lots of time with our dogs and litters and use the scientifically backed Puppy Culture method developed by Jane Killion to help prepare our puppies to be great family companions and good canine citizens. Some of the things we do include specific handling techniques and methods to show the puppies how they can communicate with humans in a positive manner. We can recommend some great books for you to read before introducing a new puppy into your home!
We place our puppies into homes matching the characteristics of the puppy that fit what the family needs in a puppy such as high bird desire for a hunting home or a very tolerant nature for someone with younger children.
We raise our litters in our climate controlled kennel building in our large whelping area with increasingly bigger exercise area. We also have a nice fenced outdoor pea graveled puppy pen for extra time outside when weather allows. All of our adult dogs are excellent in our house, in the kennel, or loose off lead on the farm while with me.
Our dogs are all pointed in the show ring, have multiple titles, and are OFA certified. We provide a health guarantee, breeder contract, limited AKC registration, and puppy packet with all of our puppies. They are always up to date on vaccinations and deworming. Visitors are welcome with appointment!
