Conformation: Multiple BEST IN SHOW winner and Specialty Best of Breed winner, Konner is the youngest male Vizsla to ever win a Best in Show and the ONLY American-bred Vizsla to earn a WORLD Championship title!  Sweepstakes Winner of both the 2004 Canadian and American National Specialties, Konner is the FIRST Vizsla to accomplish that feat as well!  He finished very quickly in limited showing with FOUR Major wins and a Puppy Sporting Group Two. 

Konner is a strong and powerfully built dog with a gorgeous headpiece. He is extremely well balanced and muscular, with a long, graceful neck blending smoothly into a strong back. He has tremendous depth to his chest, a nice forechest and good bone. His movement is free flowing, powerful and very athletic. He has an excellent temperament and is quite a lover!

Hunting:
Konner has shown tremendous natural ability in the field and we will work towards his Master Hunter title.  

Production Record
:
 Konner is standing to a limited number of approved bitches only.
