About Us

Rhapsody Vizslas had its start in Long Island, NY and then moved down to a small town outside of Raleigh, NC. Our dogs are a part of our family, competing and participating in a multitude of venues from Field Trials and conformation, to agility and service work. We put a lot of effort into making the best-informed decisions for our breeding program, with strong health and sound temperaments being paramount. We require appropriate health testing on our dogs/dogs that are considered for our breeding program (OFA hips, CERF and Thyroid) and we have recently added PennHip to our list. Our goal is to breed for the versatile Vizsla that is capable of performing all the work asked of them, but most importantly can function as well-adjusted family companions..



Although we personally share our home with just 6 Vizslas, we are extremely fortunate to have amazing puppy families that share  their wonderful Vizslas with us. Click on each respective photo to learn about the dogs we share our homes and lives with.
