About Mira Vizslas AKC Reg 'd
Look at the past, watch the present, see to the future
I am a second-generation Vizsla breeder, selecting for upland bird skills, high trainability, and companion-appropriate temperaments. Mira Vizlsas is an AKC Registered Kennel Name, and we are recognized as an AKC Breeder of Merit since 2010. My own personal dogs have won or placed in both Vizsla Club of America and National Vizsla Association national field trials including the Midwest Vizsla Futurity, Midwest Vizsla Shooting Dog Championship Derby Classic, National Quail Classic Derby Classic, National Derby Classic, National Puppy Classic, have been ranked consistently in the Top Ten national ranks when competing. They also sleep on the couch!
All breeding dogs are health tested and OFA certified free of hip & elbow dysplasia, DNA profiled so that we can prove our puppies parents are exactly who we say they are, and in various levels of training for competition. Don't settle for less, benefit from over 25 years of personal experience breeding and raising Vizsla puppies, and over 45 years including the first-generation of breeders.
I select for the type of dogs I want to live with, giving trainability and temperament the utmost priority. A well-built and healthy hunting dog is useless if you can't live with it in a suburban setting with kids, neighbors, and traffic!
All pups receive a written three-year guarantee against hip dysplasia and other serious, life-threatening genetic defects. Pups are exposed to quail, pheasant, and grouse wings before their eyes are open and are whelped and raised in our small home. Since the litters are in our living room, getting the pups started on housebreaking is my top priority! When you get your puppy home, they will have a solid training foundation for you to build upon! We also focus on proper exposure to various things including introducing the pups to the sounds of thunder, gunshots, children laughing/crying, vacuum cleaners, all types of music, and every day living noises. We spend about 20 hours each week exposing the pups to new sights, sounds, smells, and surfaces, and that is on top of the normal time spent working with pups.
My digital Puppy Packet contains over 300 pages of training articles, plus e-books, videos, and audio books so that you have the information you need, when you need it! I provide lifetime "tech support" for our buyers, too! We will also send you home with several puppy training DVDs, a food sample, toys, and a blanket to make your pup's transition easier. Your puppy purchase includes AKC registration and microchip, too!
Mira Vizslas puppies live all over North America, but for the well-being of the puppy, we no longer ship puppies cargo and encourage you to come to meet the dogs or for a fee I can deliver the puppy to you (contact me for details)
I have about 3 litters per year myself, and try to space them throughout the year. I am currently accepting deposits on future litters. Please see our website www.miravizslas.com for more specific information about upcoming litters or current availability.
In 2007 I began to offer puppy pre-school for pointing breed puppies under 6 months of age (basic obedience & housebreaking), and home-style boarding for pointing dogs.
I belong to several Vizsla Clubs, and hold positions at the local, regional, and National level. I am also a lifetime member of Pheasants Forever. I am a licensed presenter of the Family Paws™ Parent Education, Dogs & Storks®, and the Dog & Baby Connection™ programs that are designed to help families with dogs.

Submitted by: Kevin & Nancy Sullivan on Apr 16, 2015We just picked up our 3rd Vizsla from Mira Vizslas and didn't consider going anywhere else. Our first two were the most intense but controlled hunting partners in my hunting group. The last one who I hunted over for 10 years did everything from pheasants to retrieving ducks in frigid water. Both of our previous dogs would sleep with us at night and wouldn't quit hunting till I made them get in the truck.
Michele kept us posted weekly with pictures of the pups which removed any anxiety as to what we were getting. She knows how to anticipate their activity levels so you know what kind of pup to expect. The handoff of our little guy was the best start to another love affair with another Vizsla that I could have asked for. Thank you Michele.
Submitted by: Wendy P. on Sep 18, 2013We picked out our puppy in January and brought her home in March, after leaving her for 2 months of training. We couldn't be happier! Neela has been a dream!
Submitted by: Diana S. on Sep 18, 2013We just wanted to let you know what an incredible dog our Piper has been since we brought her home! We have been able to get all of our questions answered promptly and it's obvious that you care about your puppies even after they leave! Thank you for all that you do!
Submitted by: Tom E on Sep 18, 2013We can't believe it has been 1 year since we got Shiloh. She loves to be around people/dogs, she is a great, smart, and lovable dog. She was so easy to get housebroken and to teach commands. We can't wait to get her out in the field! We are so glad we got her, she is one of the family!!!
Submitted by: Jan T on Sep 18, 2013Our family is now on our fourth dog from Mira Vizslas! Michel has been great to work with, and has been very honest in how she represents the dogs to us! It's been great being able to board our dog with her when we go on vacation, too. Who knows, we might be back for number 5 soon!
Submitted by: Patti Kokan on Jan 24, 2011We bought Ruby from Mira Vizslas in March 2010. She has been much, much more than we expected! She has been a breeze to train and we have had a lot of fun with the training. Ruby is by far the smartest, funniest, and most loving dog we have ever had. She is great with our Grandchildren and our cats. She is always friendly and good natured with people and other animals alike. Her hunting instincts are outstanding. Michel has a wonderful breeding program dedicated to producing dogs that are good, solid companions, AND the best of the best for hunting. You cannot not find a more dedicated and knowledgeable person than Michel. We are so impressed that we are awaiting our second puppy from Mira Vizslas. . . one Vizsla is never enough!!!
Submitted by: Ken B. on Jan 11, 2011We got our female from you 7 years ago. She is the best hunting dog out of our group, and impresses everyone at our hunt club. This year was our best hunting season. While all of my friends' dogs are starting to slow down, she is still as powerful as ever while hunting. Thank you for a great dog! We will be getting a second dog from you next year!
Submitted by: Sean D on Dec 04, 2010We are truly in love with our puppy out of Olive and Colt! He is so willing to please, is very happy and curious, and hasn't met a stranger yet! It is obvious that the hard work Michel puts into hand raising these pups, and the different things she teaches them before they go home!
This is our very first hunting dog we are training ourselves, and it is obvious that he already knows what to do!
Thank you for an awesome puppy!
Submitted by: Matt on Nov 05, 2010Diesel grew up a lot on our trip to SD! We were hunting with a lab the first day and I don’t think our guy liked the lab getting all of the credit for retrieving birds. So, after the 8th bird of the day he started retrieving everything! He would smell the birds out, point, we would shoot them and Diesel would retrieve them! The second day was even better, because Diesel retrieved 10/12 birds (The springer we were with got 2). It was unbelievable to watch because he was the best dog out there at locating the birds, pointing and then retrieving. The best retrieve came out of a bird that he pointed, we flushed and shot, but only winged. Diesel went in the corn after him, the bird came popping out trying to fly, but couldn’t, and Diesel chased him down for about 30 yards before grabbing the live, flapping bird and bringing it over to me alive. Our guide said that he was the best first year dog he’s seen in the field just because of his progression over the two day hunt. We shot two limits of birds in two days, and a lot of it was thanks to Diesel
Submitted by: Eric on Sep 13, 2010Thank you so much for Izzy! I asked for and got the best dog a guy could hope for. She is great with my kids, really a great dog to live with and does what I want her to do in the field. This is our third hunting season, and I am really looking forward to it. Thanks again!
