Welcome to Vanguard Vizslas! Ruth and I have been involved with Vizslas since 1999 when we received our first Vizsla....
We are a small kennel located about 20 min southeast of Columbus, Ohio. Our primary interests revolve around field trials, hunt tests, and hunting with our dogs, but we also compete and participate in conformation, agility and obedience. Our dogs and puppies have been at the forefront of everything we do at Vanguard Vizslas. They excel at hunting upland game, winning and placing nationally or just hanging out with the family. We are members of the National Vizsla Association, Vizsla Club of Greater Cleveland, Miami Valley Vizsla Club, Vizsla Club of Illinois and Conestoga Vizsla Club as well as the Columbus All-Breed Training Club.
Ruth works as an RN in a children’s burn unit with one of the local Hospitals. She has previously served on the board of directors for Miami Valley Vizsla Club, and supports Columbus All-Breed Training club with their agility & obedience events. She has always had an interest in animals from an early age, participating in 4H events from grade school thru High school. During HS she worked at a local stable giving riding lessons and working with the horses, gaining a lot of the knowledge we lean on when it comes to working our current horses. Because of her schedule with work, Ruth when she can will fill in as secretary for hunt test or field trials.
Our activities and events take us all over the country and we’ve been fortunate to meet some wonderful folks along the way, many of which, have brought us lifelong friendships and make enjoying everything that this breed has to offer even better. Should you be interested in joining any of these clubs or have questions about them please contact us for further information. Or if your new or just have questions about the breed, field trialing, competing with your Vizsla don't hesitate to contact us. We are always interested in getting you more involved with your Vizsla.
