In 2005 our family was accidentally introduced to the Vizsla Breed. I came home from work and there was a beautiful red dog in my yard. I remember the exact moment because she was like no other dog I had ever seen. It was truly love at first sight. Upon questioning my husband, he informed me we were keeping her for one of his hunting buddies. Well, I fell in love with her and she never left our farm. She was smart, agile, kind, and loyal. In addition, to being a excellent bird dog, she had all the qualities a owner could ask for both in and out of the field. Our great love for the dog was the catalyst for starting Fidler's Farm in 2009. At this point we had purchased two more Vizsla's and quickly became addicted to the sports of hunt tests and field trials. In addition to our two human children, our Vizsla's are our family. We are dedicated to the sport of Field Trialing and the Vizsla Breed. We only have puppies available on a limited basis. This is due to our belief that we should only breed for the very best genetic qualities. Fidler's Farm strives for excellence in producing competitive, intelligent, loyal, and biddable Vizlsas that excel in and out of the field. Field Trialing has quickly become a family tradition. Our children are involved in every aspect of training and care for the animals. If you come to visit us, you may find kids and dogs all over our living room watching movies, or we could be all in the field training. Our family approaches life as an adventure and our dogs are integrated into every piece of our life! I can confidently recommend our pups for hunting, hunt tests, field trialing, and companionship. As long as you have the time to give them attention and exercise, they will be your friend for life and never disappoint. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about Fidler's Farm.

Wilfred is my first Vizsla, before contacting Brian I did extensive research on the type of dog I wanted to bring into my family and also the breeders. I believe that the breeders have a lot to do with the temperament of the dog growing up.
We're from Texas and after talking to Brian over the phone and through emails I knew I couldn't get a pup from anywhere else. He was thorough with updates and videos and made me feel comfortable with the distance.
Wilfred is now 1 yr 7 months and perfect in our family. He is loving, so smart, and very loyal. He is gentle with our 3lb yorkie and loves all the kids running around.
He is a family dog and I know he would be great in the field if he was given that chance.
If Wilfred ever comes to need a friend I will be coming back to Brian no doubt.

Brian and his family are the most conscientious breeders I've known. they are careful to match the puppy's disposition to the family and keep you updated with pictures and videos as the puppies grow. I love my puppy . She was nearly housebroken when I got her at 10 weeks. I am not a hunter but she has very strong tracking instincts - fun to watch. I highly recommend Fidler's Farm - They truly care about their dogs and the homes they place puppies in.

We met Brian and Stephanie Fidler when we were searching for a Vizsla. From the beginning they were always very attentive to us and our many many questions. We established a wonderful relationship with them. We decided to get a puppy from them. Once we did we were a part of the birth, socializing and many awesome videos they took for us. The care and love and knowledge and commitment they bring is far and beyond what anyone would want in a breeder. Now that we have our boy, Caleb, he is 13 weeks old. He is an exceptional puppy. He is intelligent, smart, playful affectionate and healthy. We are so happy to have Caleb as part of our family. We highly recommend the Fidler's as excellent people and excellent Breeders. Thank you Fidler family!

We bought our 2nd Vizsla (first from Fidler's) a little over a year ago. Piper is now almost a year and a half old and we could not be more in love with her. The process/relationship the Fidler's gave us with Piper was absolutely second to none. We were impressed with the original phone conversation as well as the application process to ensure we received the dog that worked best with our family. No detail was missed. Not only did we enjoy the pictures of the pregnant momma...we loved the pics and videos of the litter and the growth before we could make her our own.
There has been follow up since then and we are nothing but proud to show her off. Physically she is quite impressive...15 pounds heavier than her 4 year old "step-sister". Demeanor wise she is quite the easy dog. She loves to play and loves to please...and loves to take over my pillow if I allow her on the bed!
When the time comes to get another Vizsla there is no hesitation with my family that we will once again use Fidler's.

About a year ago I got my first Vizsla (named Todd) from Fidler's Farm. I have always wanted a Vizsla and I searched long and hard to find a good breeder, and I finally stumbled across the Fidlers. They were very easy to get ahold of and were there to answer any questions along the way. Before I was able to take my pup home they updated me with many pictures and videos of all the puppies growing up. I have now had Todd for almost a year and I couldn't be happier. He is SO handsome, smart, and lovable. I get comments everywhere I go with him about how good looking he is. He is very intelligent and easy to train because he picks things up very fast. He is the biggest cuddler and after our daily exercise he loves to just lounge and nap! I truly couldn't have a better dog from a better breeder. :)

After the premature death of our Vizsla, Bella, we started a search for a breeder within 400 miles. Health and temperament were the most important factors in choosing a breeder. Fidler Farms matched this criteria exactly. After discussions with Brian, he understood what we wanted in a puppy and was able to match from a Sammy & Diesel litter. With Brian & Stephanie's assistance we choose a male "Arlo". He is now 10 months old and the picture of health. He responds to training readily. Not a day goes by where someone doesn't comment on how handsome he is. Most impressive was the job the Fidlers did in socializing the puppy. The whole process was seamless.....we received video updates weekly.
I highly recommend Fidler Farms, and would not hesitate to purchase from them again.

We absolutely love the pup we bought from Brian and Stephanie. They were great to deal with since our initial phone call to them just inquiring about the breed. There was no pressure from them to buy a pup. They actually recommended me calling other breeders and doing more research before we buy a pup. We absolutely loved the weekly puppy update videos. My kids were able to watch their puppy grow up. Our pup is everything we wanted and more. When we are ready to get another pup we will definitely be calling Brian and Stephanie.

I was introduced to the breed in 2014 when I purchased my first Vizsla from Fidlerís Farm. From the start of the process Brian and Stephanie are dedicated to raising quality, well socialized, intelligent healthy pups. They do an amazing job matching the pups to the needs of the family, I.e. companion dog, hunting dog. Our female is now almost 5 years old and is an important part of our family. Recently I decided to get a male pup and for me there was no other choice than to go back to Fidlerís Farm! I continue to be very pleased with the time Brian will take to answer my questions, share videos of the pups as they grow before leaving mom, and the quality of their breeding. Hands down I would recommend them if you are looking to get a V. They are able to fly the pups and make the process very easy for their clients so donít shy away if you live outside Missouri. Iím in Texas and had both of my pups flown to me with no problems at all. Thank you Fidler Family!
