After an extensive search for our next Vizsla, I found CJ kennels. After speaking with Jerry I was very impressed with both his operation and the questions he asked me. It wasn't just here is what I offer and let me know if you want a dog, it was why do you want a Vizsla, have you had a Vizsla before, what's your family set up like? Do you want a hunting dog? etc. He was very interested in where one of his dogs would be placed. I arranged to come and visit and was very impressed with the dogs and the facility. Beautiful location and extremely well kept and clean. I was able to get on the list for the 2nd litter of 2017. I brought my kids back to visit the pups when they were around 4 weeks. Cookee and Jerry spoiled my kids! We had such a good time. We picked our boy Finn up in June. Cookee provided lunch and homemade vanilla ice cream my whole family still raves about. Finn is a great pup. I wanted a hunting dog and was so impressed with Jerry's knowledge that I arranged for Finn to go on a month and a half vacation to stay with Cookee and Jerry for training. although my kids missed him dearly, when I picked Finn up and was able to see how much he learned, from prey drive, to whistle commands to full points and retrieves, I was beyond happy. I received bi weekly updates on Finn's progress and even some pictures that included Finn sleeping in Cookee's recliner! I took Finn out the next week and got a full point on a well hidden public land pheasant, luckily got it with one shot and Finn retrieved it to my hand!! They truly love their dogs. I am so glad to have found CJ Kennels. Still trying to convince my wife to get a second pup from Cookee and Jerry! Thanks CJ Kennels!

I want to give a shout out to Jo's breeders, Cookie (Paula) and Jerry Moser of CJ Kennel in PA. They were wonderful and hospitable (Cookie insists that any visit must have some cake or pie to accompany it) leading up to my bringing Jo home as a 10-week old. Last week when I needed advice after a trauma to the 6-month old pup, I emailed them and they returned my email within three hours with excellent, understanding advice.
Many of Cookie and Jerry V's grow up to be hunting dogs. Jo will just be a woods runner and companion dog, and she is a sweetheart. Besides having a really sweet, gentle, exuberant nature, she readily became crate-trained, I think probably because in the last few weeks with Cookie and Jerry, she was living with her litter mates in an outdoor enclosure that resembled a crate. That was SO helpful!
If you are looking for a Vizsla and live in the Northeast, the Mosers are lovely people to work with and their V's are lovely, healthy dogs.

First of all, I never write testimonials. This truly is my first. If you've been looking for a Vizsla breeder, you've just found the best. After nearly a year talking to other breeders, we contacted Cookie and Jerry. Right from the start they answered our questions and had us to their home to see their dogs. It was abundantly clear they deeply cared about their dogs and who and where their pups were going. Our Buddy is 1 and half years old now, and he is the absolute best. He is a smart, healthy, and beautiful example of everything you would want in a Vizsla. He is a great family dog, and although I don't hunt I can see those hunting traits in him when we're out in the yard or walking. Those natural instincts come from within him, whether scenting something in the ground or pointing a bird. He is great with children and the love of my daughter's young life. Thank you Jerry and Cookie for Buddy and everything else you helped us with! You are the best. If you're lucky enough to get one of these dogs, you will not regret it.

We researched long and hard on breeds and fell madly in love with Vizslas. Once we did, we had no idea how hard it would be to one from great hunting stock and great breeders. We are so happy to have (FINALLY) found Cookie and Jerry. They truly love their dogs, are easy to deal with, and produce amazing pups. Our Willow is just about to turn a year and she has brought our family more joy and happiness than I could put into words. Jerry trains vizslas and was wonderful help with another dog that we had and were having some problems with. They spent many hours with us answering all sorts of questions and being un-Godly patient with our children who were head-over-heals in love with all of their pups. Willow is from Ziva and Buckwheat, and all I can say is we couldn't be happier with her temperament and ease of training. She is a doll, full of energy as a Vizsla should be, and a cuddle bug with both us and the kids. We hope to add a 2nd Vizsla to our home in the future, and when we do, there is no question that Cookie and Jerry will be our first choice.

Jerry and Cookie are wonderful people, can't say enough about how friendly and helpful they are! You can tell they truly take pride in their pups and only want the best for them. We have a 2 year old from Jerry and Cookie. Ripley is a healthy, intelligent, sweet-tempered, amazing dog. Jerry and Cookie have been available to us over the years if we have any questions, need any advice, or just want to brag on our handsome boy a little! If you are blessed to own one of their dogs, you will get not only an excellent breeder, but also make new friends :-)

Cookie and Jerry are not only excellent breeders but also great people. You can immediately tell how much they love their dogs and puppies. Living 5 hours away, I asked Jerry to pick us a puppy and described the temperament we were looking for having two small children. Lucy is the perfect puppy. She's beautiful, well behaved, and wonderful with our children. We couldn't have asked for a better dog. Plus she's helped our 7 year old Vizsla perk up. They are best buddies. I couldn't recommend Jerry and Cookie enough. When we're ready for another V in the future, there will be no question about where he/she is coming from.

These people are great and so are their Vizslas. I received one from their January 2014 litter. They welcomed my husband and I into their home and spent hours with their adult Vizslas and the puppies. They spend a great amount of time with their dogs and when I brought my girl home, she was almost completely house broken. I would recommend this breeder~~~~they are the best!

I can not say enough good things about Cookie and Jerry!! We are a family of two adults, 5 kids and three beagles and got our little girl Koda from them on Mother's day of 2014. Koda loves our children and is so gentle with them. She is so easily trained in fact she came to use knowing how to sit before she would get attention (which has been wonderful not worrying about her jumping and knocking over the kids). They care about their dogs and it shows. They make sure to take special care in preparing their pups to move on with their new owners. They start them on potty training, socialization, and even work on them with stairs and water. Giving a 5 rating seems so small in comparison to what they deserve!! We are excited to have Jerry train Koda to be bird dog in the spring and as much as I'm going to miss my little red headed baby, I know she will be in the best hands :). I could write so much about them but this thing would be forever long just know you will not be disappointed in CJ Kennel!!

My family purchased our 6 month old male Vizsla Jameson from CJ Kennel this spring. He is a beautiful, smart and perfect family dog for my wife and I and our 5 and 6 year old children. He has been extremely easy to train. The kennel owners are very good people and obviously know how to breed for good temperment family dogs. We had the privilege of meeting Jameson's parents, Ruger and Ellie Mae. Both of these dogs were beautiful and a pleasure to meet. It is obvious why we got such a great dog. We are looking forward to purchasing a female in the spring of 2014 to be Jameson's sister. You can't go wrong buying a Vizsla from this breeder.
