Cathy and Rich Austin have owned Vizslas since 1987.
We are based in Travelers Rest, Tasmania Australia after emigrating from the UK in 2008 bringing Edie and Nattie with us.
I first met the breed in 1985 at Crufts in Olympia . I was looking
at the time for a chocolate Labrador, wanting a gundog, but something a bit different. Whilst wandering through
the benches I came across the Vizslas and was smitten. I talked to various owners and their dogs and found everyone
to be helpful and friendly. I bought Gay Gottleib's book "The Complete Hungarian Vizsla" and practically
memorised it over the next year whilst I completed my Orthopaedic Nursing Certificate. After that I knew I could
start working part time. Then I felt ready for my first Vizsla.
We are not a big "breeding kennel". We have had 9 litters so far in the 28 years that we have been involved in the breed. We like to do " a bit of everything" with our dogs , including showing, beginners gundog training, agility, KC Good Citizen Award and in the UK going up to Chepstow Community Hospital and EPH where Nattie was a firm favourite!
We are the founder members of The South West Walkers.
