About Martinsen's Vizslas

Greetings from South Dakota, the land of unlimited birds and amazing hunting dogs! My husband and I have always been dog lovers, and have grown up around hunting dogs. We were born and raised in Iowa, and have lived in South Dakota for the past ten years. My name is Jenny, and I am in the medical profession and my husband, Tate, is a diesel mechanic. We got our first hunting dog five years ago, and have fell madly in love with the Vizsla breed. Joining NAVHDA five years ago, we never thought we would be where we are today. Tate and I are very active in our local NAVHDA chapter, Mid West Tristate NAVHDA ( Hunting and testing our dogs is a true passion and we strive to be the best we can be. Our goals are simple, to better the Vizsla breed, to create amazing versatile hunting companions and do it with all the love and care we can provide.

Jenny and Tate have been exceptional to work with for owning our first puppy. We received updates starting from Hottie's pregnancy to weekly puppy pictures and videos. Jenny and Tate did a wonderful job making us feel apart of the entire experience up to the day we took Teal home. The Martinsen's provided plenty of advice to help prepare us to take Teal home. It's amazing how fast Teal learned crate training and potty training. We have never trained a puppy before, but she learned how to crate train in 3 days and potty train in about 5 days. She is unbelievably smart! We are so happy with Teal and the Martinsen's that we will definitely be purchasing another Vizsla from them again in the future. We will adding more comments as Teal grows and begins training!

I contacted Martinsen's Vizslas last year around mid September 2013 inquiring about upcoming litters. They were fast to respond to my email and informed me that Hottie was the next up coming female to have a litter. Once we worked out the details of the litter we waited for a while since Hottie was a little late going into heat. Jenny and Tate never left me in the dark about how Hottie was doing as she finally went into heat and was carrying a litter. My wife and I are very very happy with Martinsen's Vizslas, they went above and beyond with every little thing dealing with the Dogs. I feel like they're not a breeder that is fixed on just making money but instead producing a high quality Vizsla in each and every pup. They love this breed of dog and you can tell just by how much attention to detail they put forth when hunting, training and breeding. Words can not express how happy and pleased I am with my new Vizsla pup, Jenny and Tate did an outstanding job from day 1 all the way to pick up day. So If you're looking for a great hunting dog and 4 legged best friend give Martinsen's Vizsla's a call you wont be disappointed. To them your're not just a customer but part of a community and friendship for life.

After the first phone call to the Martinesen's I knew my search for a Vizsla breeder was over. Tate and Jenny are full of passion for the breed and it shows through every time I see and speak to them. The Martinsen's made the process a breeze and are full of knowledge before and after the puppies go home. I have a male from Ginger X Cash's last litter in November 2013 and he is everything I could have hoped for in a young dog. He is hard running in the field and the perfect house dog with a great attitude and learning ability. With his obvious natural ability at less than 4 months I am ecstatic to see what his future holds.

We plan to run our dog, West, in the NAVHDA natural ability tests as well as Utility tests in the future. With a Vizsla breeder who also trains dogs full-time, we are so thankful to have their help and continued support as he grows.

If you're in search of a top notch Vizsla from a reputable breeder, look no further than Martinsen's Vizslas.

Our experience with Tate and Jenny has been phenomenal! We received our puppy Red, from Ginger's second litter, and we are more than satisfied with our little man! His natural ability to hunt is more than noticeable, he's very smart and eager to learn, and has a wonderful personality that fits right into our family. I also have to mention that he is a beautiful Vizsla, very well put together and healthy! Jenny places the puppies in the homes that she sees they would fit best in and we are very happy with the pup she picked for us. The Martinsen's are obviously very experienced with their hunting dogs and are very willing to help with any questions we have or training techniques to get him started. They are proud of what they do and are involved with the pups as they grow! I especially appreciate this because we are first time owners of hunting dogs and any help from them is VERY appreciated! I would HIGHLY recommend a vizsla from Martinsens, you will not be disappointed!

We met Jenny and Tate when we got our wonderful girl Hottie from their litter with Ginger and Boot. My son wanted a Vizsla pup and because I breed Weimaraners his puppy had to come from the best. When we heard of about Martinsen's litter we knew that is exactly what we had found. My son who was 14 fell in love with Hottie immediately and they started training for her Natural Ability test. All along the way both Jenny and Tate filled us in on Vizsla personality ins and outs. They even came to Montana and spent a week training with us. During our time from getting Hottie until present our friendship has flourished, both of us learning from each others training and experiences. I have to say they are the most professional, honest, caring breeders and very refreshing their love of all dogs. Hottie and Jade earned a Prize 1 on her Natural Ability test and is currently with Jenny and Tate to continue her training, hopefully earning her Utility Prize this year. She will also be having her first litter with them and we expect them all to be sweet little hunters just like her. If your looking for a Vizsla this is where you should be looking! As a breeder I don't take my recommendations lightly...there are very few breeders I endorse. But, I truly recommend Martinsen's Vizslas to anyone looking for a great pup along with knowledge of the breed and training advice. Outstanding people and dogs.

In May, we picked up our Vizsla puppy (Ginger's) from Martinsen's. From the very beginning, this puppy was noted to have the greatest personality. Obviously she had been imprinted from the get go. With Tate's help, we started her working birds and she was a natural. By 4 months she was pointing beautifully. By 5 months, she was water retrieving. This puppy has the desire hunt, play, and to please. To say the least, my wife and I would recommend Martinsen's Vizsla's.

Absolutely the best Vizsla I could have ever imagined. Great looking but even more importantly the best demeanor and temperament you could wish for. Jenny and Tate run a first class show and walk you through the entire process. They still keep in touch to make sure everyone is ok. Can't say enough about the entire experience.

We got Titan from the Martinsens'. He is from Ginger's first litter. When we got him he was trained already. He is a very well natured dog and very good with kids. He is a very good hunter and always wanting more training. Whenever we have any questions or concerns they are always there to answer them.

I was first very impressed with Tate & Jenny with their knowledge of the breed & also their willingness to offer training tips & answer any questions. I received a female from their first litter with Ginger. Penny has been a great addition to my family & a joy to hunt over. Penny is very much a go getter & hard charging in the field no matter what the cover. She has a great nose & will point all day long. She has turned many heads from the vet to many of my friends. I am still in contact with Tate & Jenny so that also speaks highly of their character & their interest in where their pups go.
