We got an 11 month old Vizsla from Steve. She is the greatest dog alive. Super sweet, and totally devoted to me. I want a companion and hope to get one from Steve. He and his wife were also extremely responsive and continue to help us with any questions we have. Overall wonderful experience.

We found Steve and his dogs online and my wife immediately fell in love with one of the puppies in his pictures. I was hesitant to buy a dog from a different state and from a breeder that I hadn't done business with before, but all of that changed after one phone call to Steve. He was quick to send pictures and videos of 'Murphy' working, even at 8 weeks old. He answered every question I could think of, and reassured me that if anything were to go wrong that he would make it right. Murphy has been such an easy dog to train, and very well mannered in the house. He loves birds and loves to go on walks around the farm looking for birds.
Steve and I have kept in close contact for almost a year. He offers tips and solutions when I run into problems with during training, and always answers his phone when I call. He even made the trip up to western Nebraska to hunt pheasants, quail, and prairie chicken, and help me train in person. Steve is one hell of a guy, and will do just about anything for his clients. I would recommend a Vizsla to everyone, and recommend Steve to anyone looking for the whole package in a breeder!

We got or male Vizsla pup from Steve Jarvis and his great family on 7/21/2017. When we drove up to their home, the entire family met us on their front porch. What a great reception and wonderfully appreciated. My 14-year old daughter commented "the Jarvis' are really awesome" as our new Vizsla pup slept in the lap on the way home. We highly recommend the Jarvis family as breeders and their continued support as we love our pup into our new home.

I purchased Scout, my 4 month old male Vizsla, from Steve in May. Steve makes the experience of buying and training a new puppy fantastic. Scout is smart, and already heels well off leash. He is part of our family and really wants to please. Steve's Facebook videos on training are so helpful, but more than that, he always responds to my questions when I contact him. I am really looking forward to finishing out Scout as a great bird dog with Steve's guidance. I couldn't recommend Steve more highly.

We purchased a male pup, from Steve, from a Sept 2016 litter,he's our 1st vizsla ever. He has by far been the smartest, most easy to train pup we've ever had. Steve has been a great resource when it comes to training questions as well. His suggested techniques have worked great for us. Our pup, Dempsey, definitely represents all the positives of owning a viszla!

We recently purchased a Vizsla from Steve Jarvis Bird Dogs and could not be happier! He and his family are very nice and knowledgable about the breed. We have a 4 year old vizsla and our vizsla from Steve is now 4 month. She is so smart and beautiful! She is well-mannered for a pup and has been very easy to train so far.

We have had many types of puppies (Labs, Golden Retrievers, Shih Tzu, Shih Poo, Springer Spaniel) and I can honestly say that we have NEVER had better puppies than the ones from Steve Jarvis Bird Dogs! We have purchased 2 puppies from him and they are both extremely intelligent, well-mannered, and easy to train! Although I love puppies, I have never enjoyed the "puppy training" stage. It is normally a wearisome process! The thing that sets Steve apart from other dog breeders that we have purchased from in the past is his educational approach to "how" to train his puppies. If you follow his advice, you will have no problem! I would highly recommend these high quality puppies to anyone who is interested!

We have had our Vizsla for about a year and a half and could not be more pleased. He came to us at 8 weeks and trained very quickly. He is eager to please and is great with our children. We put him on birds this past dove season. He points, holds, starts and retrieves just like he was born to.
We would highly recommend Steve Jarvis as your next breeder.

I've purchased two pups from Steve. Both were exactly what Steve said they were. All of my interactions with Steve and his family have been great. He raises great dogs! Couldn't be happier. If you're looking for a great bird dog, I would highly recommend Steve Jarvis.

Extremely pleased with my experience with Steve. He is very knowledgeable and helpful when purchasing a puppy, and we remain in contact when I have any questions. I have raised and trained many dogs and my new Vizla "Meaux" is as smart and easy to handle as any I have seen. Excellent breeding. Overall excellent experience.

I purchased a drop pointer and setter and couldn't be more pleased. She was strong in training on point. At just under 6 months I put her on wild quail and woodcock here in Louisiana, she literally pointed and had birds shot over her day 1. She will hunt all day long no quit in this dog, real nice natural close hunting range. With age she's turning into a completely finished pointing and retrieving gun dog. Steve had been excellent after the sale with any questions I had. Real honest breeder.

I have had a wonderful experience with Steve. I got my amazing 1 year old female vizsla from him and she couldn't be any more perfect for me. Steve and his wife were so helpful through the whole process and have welcomed any questions I have had since I bought my dog. They are very knowledgeable and are willing to answer any and all questions. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience!

We purchased a young Vizsla from Steve Jarvis in March 2016. Her name was Didi, and she was 9-10 months old. She is our family's first Vizsla, and Steve patiently answered our MANY questions, spent time on the phone with us talking about the breed, his dogs, and Didi in particular. When we went to visit Steve and meet Didi, Steve and his wife spent more than 2 hours with us, letting us ask more questions and letting us spend time with Didi before making a decision.
I appreciated the time he spent with us to make sure we were right for his dog as well as make sure his dog was right for us. Didi was trained for his hunting team, but was better suited to be a family dog, which is what we were looking for.
Didi has turned out to be the BEST family dog we could have ever found. Steve had already leash-trained, potty-trained and crate-trained her. She is well-behaved in the house, in the yard and at family houses. She is sweet as can be and has a loving temperament. We actually just got her spayed and our vet said she is one of the healthiest dogs she's seen.
Steve and his wife continue to check in on us and our girl's growth, and I think that is a sign of a great breeder.
My husband and I have said numerous times that a Vizsla is the best breed we could have chosen for us, and when we are ready for another, we will call Steve first.

I purchased my first puppy through Steve and Lin. They were very pleasant to work with and I couldn't be happier. They do care about the success of the dog and will guide you along the way. I highly recommend Jarvis.
