About Against The Wind Vizslas
We are dedicated to producing Championship caliber vizsla's with a focus on tempermant, health, hunting ability and confirmation in that order. To achieve this we go to great effort and expense in our breedings and are selective in our placements. The result is our winning 2 national field trial events with 2 DIFFERENT dogs in the last year. This has been passed on in our pups with many examples of success in field competition and hunting but more importantly as great family companions. Our dogs are hunted on quail and pheasant and occassionally participate in Field Trials and Hunt Tests. We normally have one or two breedings per year.

Submitted by: Brian Gingrich on Mar 11, 2013As a professional trainer I have found Mark's dogs to have everything I look for in a quality Field Trial or hunting dog. Mark's dogs have demonstrated great trainability, strong prey drive, beautiful style, incredible endurance, and the love of what they are bred to do! They are also very personable dogs that can be your buddy in the house and then be a first-class bird dog in the field. I've had the pleasure of training and competing with several of Mark's dogs and we've had some great success. Mark's dog Abby won the 2012 Midwest Vizsla Futurity! Mark takes great pride in his dogs and is very selective as to he who breeds to, ensuring a first-class dog and the continued improvement of our breed. If you're looking for a great pet & first-class bird dog, I feel very comfortable recommending Mark Sullivan's Against The Wind Vizslas!
Submitted by: Bambi Etherton on Feb 24, 2013We purchased our Winchester last spring from Jasmine's litter. Mark was never ending in his answeres to our many questions and welcoming our visits to help us pick the perfect new member to our family. Winchester exemplifies all that a vizsla can be! He has strength and endurance that can not be exhausted; yet still patience and affection making him the perfect velcrow dog for a family with two small children. Winchester has been described as " breath taking" by more than one total stranger. If you are looking for a vizsla I can not encourage you strongly enough to contact Mark Sullivan, you will be quite happy you did!
Submitted by: Rev. Jim McClure on Feb 01, 2013After a few years of working with Mark Sullivan, it is quite evident that he loves developing Vizslas of excellence, and beyond that, loves God & people even more. If one engages him, he will "have your back" throughout your Vizsla experience. We are blessed to have two Vizslas from Mark, Millie 6mos. & Piper 2yrs.+/now being bred through Mark's leadership/expertise. If you are looking for the best Vizsla available, displaying extraordinary hunting skills & drive, with a balance of laying at your feet & warm fire after the hunt, look no further. It amazes me how Mark's Vizslas can run/hunt hard all day, then calmly love on our family all evening. What a great breed of dogs and Mark is the best at matching the right dog (temperament) to the right person/family. We look forward to a lifetime of rewarding Vizsla experiences with our family friend for life, Mark Sullivan.

Submitted by: Mike Williams on Jan 17, 2013I was looking for a bird dog breed when my wife found the Vizsla breed. We contacted several breeders to get information on puppies and the breed's hunting ability. I found Mark's web site and called him. Best phone call I ever made. Mark spend over an hour on the first call going over the breed especially the documentation his puppies parents. He had one female Vizsla left so my wife and I went to see her. After talking face to face with Mark and seeing the puppy's mother we bought her. Maci was my wife's new baby and my retirement project. One thing about Maci that has surprised us is her temperment. I expected her to whine on the way home and a few nights of her crying but not a peep from her. Over the years I have had several breeds and all of them cried a bit during the first few days in their new home. Wow what a difference Maci was to the norm. Mark has offered his time after the sale of the puppy to assist me in her training if needed. That alone was unusual. He is not a sale and forget breeder. If you're in the market for a Vizsla give Mark a call. You'll be glad you did.
Best of luck! Mike & Diane
Submitted by: Rockne K. Lammers on Oct 24, 2012I recently purchased a pup from Mark out of his Simon and Molly latest litter. At less than 10 weeks old the pup knows his name, the here command, kennel command and retrieves thrown pigeons. I would highly recommend Mark's Vizslas if you are looking for either a pet or a top notch hunter. Preacher, as I call my pup, comes from great stock and will be a welcome addition to our family. Thank you Mark Sullivan.
Submitted by: Crystal Womble on Oct 19, 2012We are new to the Vizsla family, but have quickly found a love and respect for this breed. We have had an awesome experience with Mark and truly found the family pet we were looking for. Mark was so helpful in giving us all the information and background on the litter of our pup. He kept us updated on our pups progress and was always available for questions and good advice. We would recommend Mark to anyone looking for an excellent bred Vizsla dog.
Submitted by: Suzzan Lupo on Oct 16, 2012We were looking for a Vizsla to be our pet companion. After speaking with various breeders I contacted Mark. He was so helpful and everything he claimed about the parents and puppies in this litter were right on. This girl is smart, playful, brave and calm. I'm just amazed at what a perfect puppy she is. Mark did a wonderful job starting her off. We got her at 8 weeks and she already would sit for a pet, understood "no" and no nipping of hands : ) She is now 10 weeks and is basically house trained comes when called, walks on a leash and is star of her puppy class! If you're looking for a well balanced, smart, loving and athletic Vizsla I would highly recommend Against the Wind Vizslas.
Submitted by: Ron Chenoweth on Sep 13, 2012Against the Wind Vizslas are producing the best Vizsla pups around. Mr Sullivan is a great Dog Enthusiast and dedicated Breeder and Showman. A real credit to the Vizsla Dog, you cant go wrong with one of these pups.........
Submitted by: Pamela Lessenberry on Aug 21, 2012I sought a Vizsla due to the breed's reputation as producing great family pets. Mark is a terrific breeder who helped me every step of the way - as a neophyte dog owner I had basic training questions as well as specific requests for Vizsla information. Mark couldn't be more accommodating - he always responds to me quickly and checks in regularly as he and his family are quite interested in how our dear Kazmer is progressing. His terrific customer service and knowledge is commendable! Our sweet, silly puppy has grown into a gorgeous teenager who is inquisitive, easy to train, and continues to delight us on a daily basis.
Submitted by: Susan Carroll on Jul 28, 2012When we were looking for a Vizsla our goal was to find a family pet that would be intelligent, trainable and easy in the home. I must say that we got everything we were wanting AND MUCH MORE. Mark started the housebreaking process and when we got him he was completely housebroke in 2 weeks. He also learns basic obedience commands quicker than any dog we have ever owned and is an astounding athlete that is very calm in the home. Finally, we found Mark easy to work with and supportive. If you are looking for a GREAT Vizsla you should consider Mark and Against The Wind Vizslas.
