How did it
For me, on 25th of May, 1965: this
day I went to my first dog show, and right away as
exhibitor! There were altogether about hundred dogs.
In that time as a small child I spent my spare (oops,
not only the spare) time in the Körösparti kennel of
terriers owned by Ms Kati Répássy and then my life ran
about terriers for say 15 years.
The DOG shaped my career as well – animal breeding,
university of agricultural sciences…
How the shorthaired Magyar Vizsla mania evolved from
it? By marriage, in 1979!
Tamás started to hunt that time, and as hunter he
needed a hunting dog – it’s highly reasonable!
Yeah, so it must be a Hungarian Vizsla puppy, but it
should be a wiry and none but a female – so me. Who
guess, Tamás came home with a young male shorthaired
vizsla – Kávai Éber Koma, who subverted our life
in gratitude! Tamás also jumped in the doggie world:
shows, hunting – so dog training, hunting competitions,
The first PITYPANG Vizsla litter was born in 1984 after
long years of showing and hunting with vizsla and kennel visits.
The mother had been from Dunakömlődi kennel, but this line
didn’t live up to expectations so we later left it off. The
other was Juhászföldi B. Marcsa from the Hubertus line (the old
one, not the actual kennel from Australia!) Unfortunately we
soon lost the line after two fatal accidents however Pitypang
Szikra was very promising and absolutely free from HD.
In 1986 Helvécia Dóra, “Dórikám” (my deer Dori) was born in
the kennel of Ms. Zsuzsa Balogh and she became the real
foundation female of the Pitypangs and also my very first vizsla
for hunting competitions trained by myself.
Her offsprings are around me up to now …
In 1987 was the firs vizsla competition organized by us, in
Dunaharaszti. Thanks to József Bősz’s (Józsi bácsi for
everybody…) forbearing help the competition finished with great
success. Since that event we organized & took part on
competitions each one year, also organized vizsla trainings,
hunting dog schools…
Tamás was the president of the Vizsla Club of Hungary from
1989 to 2004. Since 1991 the VCH organized the CACIT Special
Hungarian Vizsla Competition year by year, and in 1997 the
series of Hortobágy Kupa Field-Water Competition had its onset,
which is famous and very popular up to now.
Both of us have been practicing as hunting dog judge for more
than ten years. Since 2008 Tamás is the president of the
Performance judges’ Committee of HKC.
Meanwhile the Pitypang Kennel continues to live and
produce healthy and good working beloved vizslas…
LET THE GOOD VIZSLA BE BEAUTIFUL!
The goal of our breeding programme:
* Longevity * Versatility* Beauty’*
We know the vizsla has been evolved into the
dog that we love nowadays during long centuries and during these
centuries the only aspect of selection was the hunting ability.
So we can say: the hunting has made the vizsla that they are: a
Our strong conviction is that nowadays the
breeders have only one workable way in the vizsla breeding - and
this way is the same that has worked for hundreds of years: to
keep up the excellent psychical abilities and in the same time
to make the vizsla more and more fit, beautiful and healthy.
Our aim is to breed vizslas that have
excellent hunting abilities (good nose, style, drive, keen to
retrieve, “dramatic” pointing ) that are nice (lean, noble,
aristocratic) that are easy to train and are to have good
temperament. We are proud of those PITYPANGS’, which have
won not only on the shows but in the hunting competitions as
well or which perform excellently in the hunting fields.
We have ascertained the hunting abilities of each of our
breeding stock. Each Pitypang baby has ancestors of two or three
generations scored for HD and having some kind of working test.
When choosing a female or male for breeding, to be “breeding
quality” is a must. Breeding quality I mean she / he is healthy,
has excellent temperament & conformation, no exception is made!
So she / he must be well balanced, sound with typish vizsla-look
and expression. Even the grandparents and the great-grandparents
of our vizslas that actually take part in our breeding programme
had been selected for these characteristics. However we prefer
the hunting fields to the show-ring, all of our brood bitches
