Our breeding goal is to produce dogs that can compete in multiple venues (Show, Hunt/Field, Rally/Obedience, Agility, Therapy) AND be wonderful loving companions.Â We focus on health and temperament; undertaking extensive health testing before breeding: we certify our dogs OFA Hips and Thyroid, and CERF (Eyes). Both sire and dam will be AKC Conformation Champions/Grand Champions with healthy and proven pedigrees.Â Our puppies are raised and socialized inside our home to the highest standards possible;Â vet care, socialization and foundation for crate training/housebreaking is also started.Â
We support our puppy owners for the life of the dog and we will also take a dog back for any reason, at any time.
Moonlight Vizslas is an AKC Breeder of Merit, and a member of our breed's National Club; The Vizsla Club of America, we abide by the club's Code of Ethics.Â We are also members of the following regional clubs; South Coast Vizsla Club (CA - Newsletter Editor/Rescue Coordinator) and Vizsla Club of Northern CA, and the Rocky Mountain Vizsla Club (CO).
Selectively breeding a litter; our focus is on quality not quantity of puppies produced. Realistically, you should plan to wait 4-6 months for a puppy from ANY reputable and responsible breeder.
Be wary of breeders who always have puppies available or operate as a business . . . neither is a good thing.Â Adopt from a breeder with whom you feel can provide you with lifelong support for your family, and in turn, your dog. You will find the effort of searching for a breeder well worth the time and wait.
If you would like more information about adopting a Moonlight Vizsla puppy from one of our future litters - or a referral to another reputable breeder; or breed information/education - please feel free to contact us, we are happy to help.

Thank you very much! But it's really not me at all; she's just a really good puppy! My neighbors at the park say how difficult puppies are, and I'm like, sorry I can't relate... Lulu slept through the night since DAY ONE, was practically potty trained when I got her home, and she's always listened to me, never chewed up any of my things, sits quietly playing with her toys while I work at home, comes when called, etc. And when everyone says how lucky I am, I tell them it's not all luck: I researched breeders for a long time! ;)
I really don't know how to thank you, which is why I always thank you! Lulu has been so wonderful and I'm so thankful I found Moonlight Vizslas and you picked Lulu for me! I feel like it was meant to be that she's my puppy and I truly have a better quality of life with her in it! I'm sure all of your puppies' families feel the exact same way. :)

Sorry we haven't called earlier, but everything is awesome! He slept through the night last night and has been great throughout. He has gone potty outside perfectly and no mistakes in the house! Buster and Indiana are doing well, still sorting out their toys, but doing quite well. Indiana is a wonderful puppy and we know he will become a great dog.

Hi Karen! I'm sitting here with a very sleepy puppy! He's been terrific and is adjusting to his new environment with ease. From the moment he arrived he's been curious, playful, energetic, affectionate, and attentive. His appetite is strong and he slept through most of the night. (He whined a little to let me know when he needed me to let him out of his crate and take him outside and then went straight back to sleep.) Today we've had a number of play/ explore sessions interspersed with naps. He's been inquisitive and relaxed when introduced to umbrellas, the rain, his soft crate, my father's really loud snoring, and the fire (among other things). He really is an absolute joy.
Thank you for all your hard work!

We are so lucky to have found Szikla (and you) when we did. Thanks for always being available with questions.

Zali is doing great and is such a sweet heart - BEST decision EVER!!! Neil and I actually decided that we MUST have another Vizsla at some point (ideally from you ;))!!! Zali has completely exceeded our expectations of having a Vizsla - you matched her perfectly to us! We really appreciate that you trusted us with one of your dogs, because we know that most breeders are comprehensive towards NEW Vizsla owners, which you were too, but you gave us a chance - thank you for that!

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Karen Lake and Moonlight Vizslas. Karen is a dedicated steward of the breed and an amazing resource on everything from breeder recommendations to pet food and products. We were lucky enough to get our puppy, Mila, from the Rocky x Csilla litter, and she is truly a wonderful puppy. She is currently competing in AKC conformation and hunt test. I highly recommend Karen and Moonlight Vizslas; the best.

Cami is doing great! She is very curious, playful and smart! She has learned several commands and tricks. She is very eager to learn and loves being around people. She is a great dog and we love having her in our family!

We are just LOVING Luna – she is an absolutely wonderful dog and you were spot on in selecting her for our family. She’s about as well behaved as an energetic pup can be, really. She is BIG now, probably about 40 pounds ... but hopefully is just about done growing other than filling out a bit. She’s absolutely beautiful, and just the sweetest dog I’ve ever come across. We are very happy to have her as part of the family!

Breed - Vizsla, Male
Name - Zsaru (RU)
Age - 9 months
I have had Vizslas for the past 20+ years and am very particular when I acquire a new one.
Karen Lake of Moonlight Vizslas was very responsive to the questions I had asked about her litter of puppies and individual puppies within the litter. She also hosted an amazing web site that allowed you to view the puppies - with almost daily updates of pictures and videos. Karen was diligent in matching buyer's requirements/wishes with puppy's behavior, disposition, and conformation/looks. I was looking for a confident male that would not be prone to separation anxiety and had potential for hunting - so far, Ru has been exemplary on both accounts.
A happy and proud owner, Steve Van Horn, Seattle, WA
