Check list and tips for new Hungarian Vizsla Puppy Owners


Food.

We always feed our pups a wide variety of food.

We cook a wide combination of the following:  Porridge with Lamlak, scrambled egg, turkey and chicken mince, white fish, a wide range and combinations of vegetables, rice and pasta  every day. (They love batons of cold carrot and a little chunk of banana plus Blueberries) They will need lots of water too.

For dry food we buy James Wellbeloved Turkey and rice Puppy food.


 

We also buy raw  and dry food for our adult dogs.

We serve food 4 times a day and will do so until about 14-18 weeks where we aim for 3 servings, we also have a few snacks especially chilled carrots batons. We give the pups about half a bowl of food per portion. All servings are approx. 125-150 grams. This amount is increasing. We never serve the same thing more than once a day apart from their dry food ( 1 or sometimes 2 times a day  “James Wellbeloved” , Turkey and rice)  Their vitamin supplements mainly come from their Lambs milk (goats’ milk is just as good) which we add to their porridge. We sometimes add this to the dry food too instead of water. We always mix their dry food with lamb's milk or water, but are adding less every day as they get used to solids. We do use multi vitamins that we grind up and add to their milk.

We have not moved to raw food yet; we will slowly introduce that once a day in a few weeks’ time. We eventually aim to have 1 raw session, 1 home cooked session and 1 dry food session per day plus snacks and treats.



 

In regards to treats we buy pigs ears and rabbit ears from: Just For Pets



They have a great deli section. They have small treats for pups like sprats.

These are ideal for helping with training.

You will need to worm your pup at 9 week & 11 weeks old. Once it is 3 months there are different worming tablets that can last up to 3 months. When the pup is 6 months old you can find some worming tablets that last for 6 months.



 

 

Dog harness. Size: About 16 inches. They are growing so fast!


Insurance: Many Pets



We have all our dogs insured on their maxinum policy of up to £15,000 a year. They seem to be the best. Our experience with them has been exceptional. 





 

CHECK LIST FOR NEW OWNERS

 

  1. Book a vet’s appointment within 7 days just for peace of mind and to make sure he or she is 100% tip top. Please make sure you get the correct local vaccinations for your pup.

  2. Wait 2 weeks after their second L2 jab before venturing into the big wild world.

  3. Please remember that at 12 weeks old they should only go on very short walks, 15- 20 minutes maximum a day. This gets longer as the pup gets bigger and fully develops.          

  4. Renew your insurance once the KC insurance runs out after 5 weeks.

  5. Remember worming at 9 weeks and 11 weeks. After 13 weeks you can move onto worming tablets that last 3 months.

  6. Start training right away, Vizsla pups like (love)  food so encouragement and reward is the way forward. Distraction with a toy or treat is also a great trick.

  7. Puppies will eat anything and everything if you let them! You have to be extra safe for the first few months.

  8. We find yelping, like a pup, is helpful when they attach themselves to one of your toes. We use that noise as a basic training tool to let them know they are hurting us.

  9. Make sure you have basic provisions for your Pups. We use puppy pads from Pets for Homes. They are being trained to do their thing on these.

  10. Please make provision for their cozy spot where they can relax. They will need time to adjust as they will miss all their Brothers  and Sisters.

  11. Remember to buy a ID tag with the owners info for your pup. All dogs must have one when outside.
