  • Trainability Responsive

Standing at a manageable 21-24 inches at the shoulder and weighing around 45-65 pounds, the Vizsla is a medium-large hunting dog. These dogs have a single coat that can either be smooth or wirehaired and are low to moderate shedders. Commonly seen with grey or black coats, weekly brushing is recommended in order to keep stray hair around the house to a minimum. Vizslas are spry and healthy but, like any pet, should be taken for regular vet checkups to ensure optimal health.

The Vizsla has a long heritage as an effective hunting partner. The breed was created to be both a retriever and pointer, so it has a tendency to stay close by its human in the field and at home. This is one of the most fundamental – and adored – characteristics of the Vizsla. If you love having a little friendly shadow with you everywhere you go, this is the pup for you!

While the breed is not known to be as energetic as a Brittany or Border Collie, they do require adequate exercise and have a strong desire for purpose and connection. An hour of vigorous daily exercise is recommended to keep your Vizsla happy and content. Vizslas excel at canine performance sports and are the only breed recognized as a "Quintuple Champion", winning the top spot in five officially recognized AKC sports.

How dog-friendly is Arizona?

In general, Arizona is a great place for dogs – with parks, plenty of dog-griendly restaurants, and great access to pet care. The one downside is that the state has a very low percentage of pet-friendy rentals available. This single factor brings their overall score down a bit.


Pawsafe put Arizona in the 46th place for pet-friendliness in their study. They noted the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 18%, which brought the overal score down. 


A similar study from Safewise puts Arizona as a more pet-friendly place, ranking the state at 27th.


Both of these studies consider a wide range of important factors for your beloved pet’s health and happiness – including pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.

How pet-friendly are Arizona’s cities?

SmartAsset reviewed the 100 largest U.S. cities to grade them for pet-friendliness.

A few more pet-related Arizona facts

In Arizona, 43% residents own a dog, which is above the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Phoenix, these breeds are just as popular, but people also love Pit Bulls.


The state’s total pet ownership percentage is also far above the national average with 69% of Arizona homes owning a pet. Like we said, Arizona loves its pets!

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arizona

Arizona saved 2,458 more animals in 2020 than in 2019 and 33 of the state’s 66 animal shelters are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is approximately 86% so they only need a small increase to meet the 90% to become a no-kill state. We hope to see this percentage go up!
