The Hungarian Vizsla does not have any inbred problems. They are a highly intelligent breed and enjoy challenges and stimulations both physical and mental. However, if left without challenges, they tend to become hyperactive or destructive. They also become gluttonous and steal food off of tables and countertops. They are generally healthy because they thrive on exercises. They also love attention and interaction. Being active prevents them from becoming overweight. Due to their love for attention and interaction, owners are advised against keeping them in kennels. They are at their best when surrounded by people. Vizslas are known to be excellent swimmers and don't let go of an opportunity if they come across a pool nearby. On 25 November, 1960, Vizsla was recognized as the 115th breed by the American Kennel Club.
