We just recently had the pleasure of visiting the Chenoweth Kennel and Farm. What a wonderful way to spend a day!! A gorgeous setting, top notch facility and Ron was more than generous with his time. EVERY question we had was answered and the tour we had was phenomenal. Ron will be a lifelong friend and contact for us anytime we have any Vizsla questions or needs. We are pleased to be bringing another Female into our home this September and we are proud to put CK in front of her name! Thank you Ron and Denise. We are looking forward to seeing you again as the puppies grow. (Mesa, our 2 year old Vizsla..can't wait to return to Countryside as well)

Ron and Denise have been great to work with and they have been so helpful with any questions or concerns we have had. It never matters what time of the day it is they are always there to help us out with any problems. We have bought a total of 3 puppies from Chenoweth Kennels and we absolutely love them. Our oldest dog Diamond (4 years old) is a wonderful companion and also a great hunter. She is a well rounded dog which is exactly what we wanted in a Vizsla. Before we bought Diamond we talked to Ron and told him what we were looking for in a puppy and he helped us pick one out. Based on his experience of what we were looking for. Ron knows what he is looking at and Diamond is everything we could have ever wanted in a Vizsla. Chenoweth Kennels has high standards and their breeding program goals are to produce the best and to help preserve the breed. It's so wonderful to work with someone that wants to produce the best and has pride about their breeding program. If you are looking for a puppy I would highly recommend Chenoweth Kennels you won't be disappointed.

As a professional trainer I have found Ron & Denise's dogs to have everything I look for in a quality Field Trial or hunting dog. Chenoweth Kennel 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 a first-class bird dog in the field. I've had the pleasure of training and competing with Ron & Denise's male Guy. Guy earned the title MVSDC 1XCH FC CK Touchdown Guy at the age of 25 months! Ron & Denise take great pride in their dogs and are very selective as to they who breed 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 Chenoweth Kennels!

We purchased our puppy, Marlowe, from Rom and what a great addition he has been to our family. He has a great temperment and a lot of spunk. Training has been easy as he is very food motivated.
Overall we are very pleased with Marlowe.

Although I have not purchased a puppy from Ron and Denise, I have had the privilege of hunting over dogs they have raised and also have watched them work at field trials. I have been very impressed with how they have performed in both venues. The dogs I have had the opportunity to observe have demonstrated ease of handling and phenomenal noses. Also they exhibit great natural pointing instinct and retrieving ability.
I would recommend that anyone looking for a great bird dog as well a wonderful companion look no further than Chenoweth Kennels.

I have known Ron and Denise for many years now. Not only are they well educated about the vizsla breed, but they are caring individuals that only want the best for their puppies. They helped me pick out my vizsla, Lucy, based on her energy level and we are a perfect match!! I could not be any happier!! I would highly recommend getting a vizsla from Ron and Denise. Whether you want a champion hunting dog or just a cuddly friend for home, they have the perfect pet for you. I am very satisfied with Lucy and when the time is right, I will get another vizsla from Ron and Denise.

Update: My girl CK Karaleva Cleopatra at 11.5 months old has 2 points toward AFC having won a field trial walking derby at 9 months old and now has her first pass at Senior Hunter this past weekend. Ron is breeding outstanding pups. Ron and Denise are wonderful folks and have been very supportive since day one!

We are delighted with our Vizsla through Chenoweth Kennels! Millie is now 7mos. old, our 2nd Vizsla, and to no one's surprise, shows remarkable field skills/nose/pose/point/non-stop drive, then balanced by calmly loving on you & family in the balance of time, after the hunt. An added blessing is the new Network of Friends one makes, with good Vizsla folks hanging out with other good folks, like Chenoweth fellow Vizsla friend Mark Sullivian for starters; again, all wonderful folks. Over our lifetime we have bred other lines of dogs, but the Vizsla breed tops all; and working with folks like Chenoweth Kennels & friends, with a long & excellent track record, makes this a delightful project over the longhaul. Good folks who will be there for you throughout your Vizsla experience. Means a lot.

I bought my puppy, Caroline from Chenoweth Kennels four years ago. Caroline has been such a joy in my life. She is my companion and see is the first to alert me if there is a weird noise outside my house. I am a single female and I own my own home, so I wanted a dog to protect me and keep me company. I am in the military, so I have to run all the time to stay in shape. When Caroline was three months old I started taking short jogs with her, and oh man, does she love to run! Of course, chasing the birds is fun too. Chenoweth Kennel is a top notch and progressional kennel. Their customer service and knowledge about the vizsla breed is matchless!!

I was lucky enough to hear about the Chenoweth Farm's Vizsla's January 2012. Ron told me they had a liter just born that were terrific. March I went to select my pup. Ron and Denise helped me first choose the right pup for me and my family. He asked me a few questions about what I was looking for in a dog, which was for a family pet and perhaps some light hunting. When we chose our dog we went for the pup that showed the most interest in my three boys. Linkin was chosen, and what a great choice he was. Our dog is so easy to train it's insane. He is friendly, SMART, loveable and very gentle around kids did I mention Smart? The Chenoweths have really helped with any questions I've had even months after getting Linkin. I called Ron a few times with questions about Vizsla behavior and and training techniques. I have been nothing but impressed with the my dog and the Chenoweths advice and service. I HIGHLY Recommend getting a Vizlsa from Ron and Denise.

I have been working for Ron and Denise for the past 20 years and thoroughly enjoy my job. Who could complain about playing with puppies all day long! Over the years the Chenoweth's have been breeding several different breeds of dogs. Since acquiring his first Vizsla, Jack, I would consider purchasing no other breed but a Vizsla. In his later years, Jack was my constant companion, helping me feed the horses, guarding the Blazer and hunting occasionally. Several of Ron's dogs consider me their human and stick to me like velcro. Humanization of the dogs and puppies is very important to their developmental state and well being. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else but at Countryside Kennel.

I purchased my sweet little Vizsla boy from Chenoweth Kennels on November 2nd, 2012. He was just one day shy of being 8 weeks old! I had done a lot of research on the breed and adding a Vizsla to my family just sounded perfect. It took me over a month to find a trustworthy breeder and believe me, I searched for my perfect puppy every day! I live on the Alabama/Georgia line and I didn't want to travel too far to get a dog but if I had to do it, then I would! Me and my boyfriend embarked on the 14 hour trip on November 1st. This is a trip I would take over and over again because the quality of my Vizsla puppy, who we named Drake (after the waterfowl company), is amazing. He has learned commands so quick! He already has 4 down perfect and he is only 10 weeks old. He gets along great with my German Shepherd, and any other dog he comes into contact with! We took him to Bass Pro Shop the other day to get a quail hunting training kit and kids were just flocking to him wanting to hug him and pet him and Drake didn't mind one bit. I get so many compliments on him. When I took him to the vet after I got him, Dr.McCord was bragging about him saying he doesn't get to see a lot of Vizsla's around our area but out of all the ones he has seen, Drake is the most gorgeous! He was complimenting the way his tail was docked as well, saying that it was perfect! I am proud to say that my Vizsla came from Chenoweth Kennels! Thank you Ron, Denise and kennel help Irene for producing top-quality hunting buddies and all around super sweet companions!! :)

Back in February 2011 I searched the country looking at Vizsla breeders to find the "right" pup for me. I already have a 2.6 year old male Vizsla. I came across Ron and was so impressed with his friendly, supportive and knowledgeable communication, that I drove across the country from Virginia and picked up a pup. Ron's developing a fantastic kennel and breeding program.
I'm extremely pleased with my little girl, who's actually been pushing my older dog to a higher level. I told Ron that I'm skipping Jr. Hunter and going straight to Senior hunter testing this fall. Wish us luck!

I have known Ron and Denise for several years now and have watched as they have excelled in consistently producing some of the top vizslas in the country. The committment they have for producing the best and having the facilities and means to do it is in my opinion tops in the Vizsla world. I personally own three Vizslas from their kennel and could not be happier with the health, tempermant and hunting ability.
Ironically although they are top Vizsla breeders I think you will find them to be even better people. They go out of their way to support puppy buyers and others in general...as my mom use to say "those are good people".
