I have been
involved with vizslas for the past 13 years which have been the best
13 years of my life. I have been breeding since 2004. I am
located in the beautiful countryside of northern Virginia. I
love my dogs with passion and use that same passion in my breeding
"Dee-Na-TA" and what does it mean?? Well, "dynata"
is a greek word which according to the Greek dictionary
means the following:
loud, mighty, nappy, nervy, possible, potent,
potential, powerful, robust, strong, and vigorous.
When I try to put words around the vizsla, ALL of these
words drive the point home for me. Since a very
special friend of mine, a native Greek, is responsible for
introducing me to the breed it seemed the perfect fit for
a kennel name (not to mention it was the actually the
easiest word to try to pronounce - Greek words sure can be
long and complicated!).
The dogs love to run on the rolling hills that we have at
our home. I owner handle in many venues including
conformation, hunting (hunt tests, NAVHDA and field trials) agility, and
obedience. It is so
wonderful how truly versatile the vizsla is - they enjoy just about
everything. And there is no better way to feel true peace unless
you have your vizslas snuggled up all over you when it
comes time to rest.
My vizsla family consists of my first vizsla Nouli -
Nouli JH OA AXJ; my first female Lexi -
CH. Cameo's Bound and Determined SH CD NA NAJ VC ROM;
her daughter Maddy -
Dynata's Bound to Know It All SH NAJ NAVHDA NA Prize II 99,
and our latest Maddy daughter addition Katie -
CH. Dynata's Bound to Have Known
It All Along JH
I am very active now training all four dogs. I am working with
Nouli on his Excellent Agility titles after breezing
through Novice and Open. I am working with Lexi to
become a polished Master Hunter after earning her Senior
Hunter title in 2006 as well as continuing her on with her
Open agility titles, I am working with Maddy on becoming a
Master Hunter as well as see if we might do a few field
trials, as well as continuing on with agility and
obedience, Katie may do some agility, and Jackie will
start her show career in 2010.
I am active in two local vizsla clubs as well as a member
of the national club - the Vizsla Club of America (VCA).
I was the Vice President of the Conestoga Vizsla Club, and
am now active in the Old Dominion Vizsla Club. I was also the Chairman of the VCA 2005 National Gun Dog
Championship. I am currently a Committee Chair for
the Vizsla Club of America.
