Types of Events


The definition of versatile is: able to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities.

The vizsla has the ability to participate in many of the AKC activities and events and earn titles. A pass fail event title will go after the name while a competition event  title goes before the dogs name. Here are some of the events they do and links to a page with a description.
