All Star Review

The All Star Review (ASR) is devoted to inspiring the preservation of the true working vizsla. We believe these dogs having demonstrated the essence of the Vizsla as that of a natural hunter of distinguished appearance and bearing . . . are truly "All Stars" of our breed.

Born from the desire to show that field dogs are not ugly nor are show dogs lacking in natural ability, this competition was designed to showcase that fact.

To be eligible for participation in the All Star Review, entrants must have earned their Show Championship in combination with either a Field Championship, Amateur Field Championship, Master Hunter title or a NAVHDA Utility Prize 1. Only one placement, the winner, is given. Each dog entered receives a striking black, white and red rosette engraved with its name, and the winner receives a beautiful trophy, a bottle of Champagne and a huge rosette.

We "borrowed" the idea of an All Star Review from a similar competition held by the German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America. The ASR color catalog contains a photo, a three generation pedigree and a personal bio of each dog entered, and we hope will prove to be an absolutely super source of knowledge for breeders for years to come.

All of the handlers and volunteers dress to the nines in evening attire, and they add just the right touch of class to this event honoring our breed's finest dogs.

2020 ASR Premium

A little about the judging:

It is a given that the dogs entered in the All Star Review conform to the AKC Standard for the Vizsla breed by virtue of their show championships, therefore the judges' scoring will place heavy emphasis on the specifics of the standard that refer to the Vizsla as a working dog.

The competition is judged by three judges whose identities are kept secret up to the start of the show. The judges are chosen from the ranks of Vizsla owners and breeders who have demonstrated and continue to demonstrate a commitment to the dual qualities of the Vizsla breed.

A portion of our profits is given to the VCA Welfare Foundation.
