Specialty Events

Copyright ©

The Vizsla Club of America holds their National Specialty events the 17th week of the AKC Corresponding Date Calendar.  The VCA National Specialty is held in a different region of the country every year and includes conformation, Junior Showmanship, obedience, rally, agility, educational events and Judge Education. Additionally there is a Futurity Maturity and an All-Star Review that is limited to Vizslas with Conformation Championship and either a Field Championship or Master Hunter title. 

Entry in any VCA National event (show, field, performance or companion event) requires a DNA number. This applies to rescues and to spayed/neutered dogs. Advertising in the national specialty catalog requires both a DNA number and an OFA number if a specific dog's name is used.

A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show holds tremendous prestige within the dog show community. This award indicates that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed. Our Vizsla National Specialty usually draws a large entry of dogs. The total entries vary depending on the location of the event, but the averages entry is over 200 Vizslas of all ages. 

National Specialties are a great place to come and learn about the breed, and talk to participants and breeders.

The VCA also holds two national events that focus on the field capabilities of the Vizsla. The National Gun Dog Championship  held every spring and the National Field Trial held every fall.
