Welcome to the Vizsla Club of Illinois Breeder Referral Listing!
Click here to go to the VCOI Breeder Directory
The purposes of this webpage:
• To educate prospective puppy buyers about the breed and about breeding
• To provide a service to our member Breeders so they might share the information about their kennel and their available litters
• To connect prospective buyers with reputable breeders from our Club
The following members of the Vizsla Club of Illinois (VCOI) have paid for inclusion on the online Breeder Directory. The VCOI guidelines for inclusion on the list suggest that Breeders breed only with the intention of improving the standard as recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), exhibit soundness, stable temperament and natural hunting ability. In addition, our guidelines endorse the efforts of the Vizsla Club of American (VCA) and Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) to eliminate hip dysplasia in dogs and suggest breeding only those dogs that are over two years of age and have been x-rayed and OFA certified as free from hip dysplasia, and those dogs free of serious hereditary defects including epilepsy, progressive retinal atrophy, Von Willebrands, entropian and cranial atrophy.
Inclusion on the Breeder List does not constitute an endorsement by the Vizsla Club of Illinois, its Officers, Directors, Membership, or Webmaster. It is the responsibility of the puppy buyer to do research on individual breeders and stud dog owners. The VCOI assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the information submitted and provides no endorsements for dogs, individuals, or kennels. The VCOI guidelines ask breeders to be fair and honest in their dealing with prospective buyers, and model the Code of Ethics of our parent club, the Vizsla Club of America.
