about us

At HarbourPoint, we work hard to produce healthy pups with excellent temperament, conforming to the Canadian Vizsla Standard in both form and type. We compete in the show ring, obedience and field with our Vizslas. Having different breeds of dogs all my life, since 2003 I have been devoted to the Vizsla breeds both smooth and wire.

We are located in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, about 90 minutes from Halifax, in Chance Harbour, Black Point, hence the name HarbourPoint.

Our Journey

After a lot of research and meeting with different breeders, our first Vizsla, “Copper”, joined our family in the spring of 2003. (tips on picking a breeder)

If you are new to the Vizsla breed I encourage you to research the breed to ensure the Vizsla is the “right” dog for your home. Since Copper came into my life as a pet, there has been no turning back for me. In 2005, I adopted a rescue GSP, “Gretyl”. Copper and Gretyl were lifelong pals.

With Reba we entered the world of Conformation, Obedience, Field and Rally-O. These dog sports were not only fun for me and Reba, it showed me how important the proper structure and temperament were. Titles in conformation, field, obedience show that the movement and structure is correct, they have the natural ability to hunt, and trainable and good natured.

I knew I had Vizsla fever when we added River to our home. River was fitting nicely into our breeding plans.  At 7 ½ months River obtained his Conformation Championship. River was from the first Vizsla litter in Nova Scotia to be shown with dewclaws and undocked tail and finished his first year as the #3 Vizsla in Canada. River continued to do well in the show ring and for 2012 and 2013 was the #1 Vizsla in Canada. Before River’s second birthday he obtained his Grand Champion and Grand Champion Excellent titles. The next year he earned his Field Dog Junior title. Unfortunately, River left us way too soon from Lyme Disease. Luckily, we were able to keep his lines alive through is granddaughter Lilly

We continue to be very active in the show ring and the field.  We have put titles on Amber, Lilly, Móka, Reign, Ben, Ruby, Star and currently working with getting Rumour’s championship title.
