In the conformation ring, in all the performance areas and at home on the couch, there is an ongoing comparison of the Vizsla to the Weimaraner. They are both Sporting dogs, and many similarities exist in their history, function and standards.

By comparison, the Weimaraner is the larger of the two with more bone, substance and angulation than its counterpart, the Vizsla. A study of comparison photos is a must. It is of the utmost importance to breed type such that neither looks like the other, even though they are both elegant, athletic and balanced dogs.

It is easy to appreciate teh differences in the written

I would like to see some of these breed comparisons with ungroomed, undocked or cropped examples of each breed.

If you can't tell teh difference between them then, or struggle to, you really have a problem with type.
