Would you like to represent HWV at the Europa Cup?
Every year the Vizsla European Field Trial Championships also known as the Europa Cup are hosted by a different country via their respective Vizsla Club. This, the nineteenth year is no different and is set to be held in Denmark for the second time in the history of the competition.
Several members of the Association have expressed an interest in having a Wire team and so we are keen to encourage people to enter their HWV, if they are at a suitable standard, in the hope that there could be teams of both smooths and wires for the first time at this years’ competition.
Please return your entry form (below) as soon as possible.

NEW DNA TESTING SCHEME FOR HUNGARIAN WIREHAIRED VIZSLAS
The Kennel Club has approved a new official DNA testing scheme for hyperuricosuria (HUU) in Hungarian Wirehaired Vizslas, following consultation with the breed health coordinator on behalf of the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association.
To find out which laboratories the Kennel Club is able to record results from, and which labs will send results direct to the KC, please refer to the worldwide DNA testing list at www.thekennelclub.org.uk/
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “The popularity of the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla has been slowly increasing over the past decade and the population is now more than double what it was ten years ago, so we are pleased to be announcing this new DNA test for the breed. It will further help breeders make informed decisions when it comes to breeding, enable potential puppy buyers to be aware of issues which could affect their chosen breed, and ultimately protect and maintain the health of the breed.”
The Kennel Club continues to work alongside breed clubs and breed health coordinators, in a collaborative effort to improve the health of pedigree dogs and we are happy to accommodate a club’s request to add a new DNA test to its lists. We would normally need a formal request from the breed’s health coordinator or a majority request from the breed clubs.
Test results will be added to the dog’s registration details which will trigger the publication of the result in the next available Breed Records Supplement. The result will appear on any new registration certificate issued for the dog and on the registration certificates of any future progeny of the dog, and also on the Health Test Results Finder on the Kennel Club website. Results for dogs already tested can also be recorded, but owners will need to submit copies of the DNA certificates themselves.
If the owner includes the original registration certificate for the dog (not a copy) then a new registration certificate will be issued, with the DNA result on it, free of charge. Please send any DNA test certificates to Health & Breeder Services, The Kennel Club, Clarges Street, London, W1J 8AB, or scan and email copies of the certificates to email@example.com.
