Terry Ann and Zara after hunting

Who is the Accidental Bird Dog?

Zara is my nine year old Hungarian vizsla. When we first got Zara as a puppy, my husband and I had no intention of training her for hunting. When Zara was two years old, I entered her in a Junior Hunter Test at her breeder’s encouragement. With little training, she did exceptionally well and I found myself amazed watching her natural ability. Soon after, I decided that I wanted to train her to a more advanced level and that began a long journey that has taken me places I never imagined. We added a second dog, Colombo the Rhodesian ridgeback, a few years later. Thanks to the two of them, I’ve become passionate about all things related to performance dogs and dog sports.
