We are the proud and privileged owners (or perhaps borrowers is the correct term) of Leiborschy Rufus, currently a handsome and loving, gentle 6 month old 'Sprocket litter' pup. We are proud of this fine specimen of his breed (we are constantly stopped when walking Rufus whilst people adore and admire him) and privileged to have been approved and deemed to be suitable, responsible, sensible, experienced, caring and committed enough to be allowed to borrow one of Diane's and Paul's fabulous Wires and join the Leiborschy Family - trust me, no easy achievement!  

We found Leiborschy Wires as a result of searching HWV breeder websites. The dedication and effort put into the website alone was impressive at first read, then when we telephoned, presented our credentials via email, met and visited Diane and Paul at Leiborschy HQ for our 'interview' as possible/to be considered, new puppy parents, we were absolutely overwhelmed by their professional high standards and total love and dedication to their dogs and this breed.  They go way, way beyond any breeder's responsibilities that myself or my dog owning family or friends have ever experienced (one of my daughter's is a dog groomer in contact with a wide range of breeds and owners) because in addition to breeding healthy pups, they also importantly give the growing and developing puppies such a wide range of experiences during the formative first 8 weeks of their lives. Some examples: Our 8 week old pup came home with us and could already 'sit', 'come' and 'pee' when asked! For the less experienced dog owners out there believe me, this is not usual - it is very unusual. We collected him in October and when he was just ten weeks old fireworks were raining down on our home during Diwali and Nov 5th celebrations - our pup did not take any notice whatsoever because he had been exposed to every day life noises and desensitized as a result of listening to a CD for the first 8 weeks of his little life. We live in London and sirens, traffic, hustle and bustle do not startle him.  He had already been trained to use a 'pee pen' and because we closely followed Diane's advice, he had only 4 'accidents' indoors (our fault: lack of attention).  

Diane advised us regarding the choice of our pup: gender and personality to compliment our lifestyle (but it's the other way round with our Rufus) and has always been 'at the end of the phone' to help and further support us, with the best interests of pup and successful relationships foremost in her heart, this in addition to the insightful and informative pack we were given. 

Diane taught us about the breed as I had no previous experience of the gundog group anyway, but I had met several Wires and fallen in love with them. I have gone through a huge learning curve in a short time and truly understand that they are strong but gentle, highly intelligent and quick to learn, loving but sensitive and need love, patience, mental stimulation, physical exercise, companionship and commitment and should never be underestimated! 

We feel truly blessed to have found the Leiborschy Family and are very clear that we will only ever keep our dog, subject to maintaining the Leiborschy and associated 'Family Group' very high standards and expectations. 

We are confident to bet that you will not find another breeder of this amazing and remarkable calibre!  

Thank you Diane and Paul for our wonderful pup who is such a treasured member of our family.

We came to a decision to make Hungarian wirehaired vizslas part of our lives during an enforced 5 year period without a dog.  Our lifestyles meant it wasn’t possible.  I was completing my PhD, spending most of my time travelling (coincidentally working in Hungary) and Eric was also studying / working away from home.  These barren years gave us plenty time to reflect on what choice we might make for our next dog.  I had many gundogs in my family; I grew up with an Irish setter, relatives had spaniels and weimaraners. Being outdoor people, we were going to have a lifestyle that suited the needs of an active, energetic gundog.

We had always admired smooth vizslas, but weren’t aware of HWV until we happened to catch a rare breed focus piece on Crufts on TV featuring HWV. The handsome good looks, breed standard and above all, the described personalities of wires really appealed and we knew we had found a breed that was probably the one for us.

Much research followed and we contacted and spoke to a few breeders before narrowing our search to a couple who we visited to meet some wires.  One of these breeders was Diane.  There was no doubt having met some wires, they are a very special breed, and in meeting Diane, we had found a special breeder with such remarkable and endearing dogs. We were smitten.

We took the opportunity to ask Diane lots of questions about wires, and Diane vetted us too, asking plenty questions about our circumstances and lifestyle to assess our suitability to be owners of one of her pups.  We were only too happy to answer her questions and it was reassuring to know that she placed such high importance on getting the best homes for her pups. Fortunately, Diane decided we would be up to scratch as a future Leiborschy wire family, when the time was right for us to have a dog again.

In 2006, that time arrived and we contacted Diane and went on her ‘Puppy in Waiting’ (PIW) list. Our beautiful boy Hector joined us at the end of the year.  Delighted with our experience with him, we returned to Diane a couple of years later and we were joined by our fabulous Leiborschy boy, Darwin.  The boys enjoyed many happy, healthy years together.  Throughout their lives Diane was there if we ever needed advice and support, including when we lost our beloved Hector. 

As the breed becomes ever more popular, one needs to be ever more discerning about breeder choice. The welfare,  health and genetics of wires should be paramount. To call Diane a ‘breeder’ undermines the highest level of care and commitment she provides for her dogs and the pups, not to mention her unwavering support for the Leib ‘family’ of owners (and fantastic Facebook Leiborschy group page to keep us all connected). There are breeders and then there is Diane.  She is a breeder with integrity and her commitment extends not just to individual dogs but to the HWV breed and as such is an advocate for the breed, as are her dogs. Diane will remain our first choice of breeder for as long as she chooses to continue to breed wires.

We have recently been joined by our third Leiborschy wire, Noma, a delightful, confident, clever girl who has slotted into our lives perfectly. We really appreciated being able to follow Noma’s development and progress throughout mum Rena’s pregnancy until the time Noma joined us and it was lovely to visit the pups, see Diane, Paul and the dogs (including Noma’s dad, the stunning Ravasz) and eat Diane’s superb cakes on our visits from the Outer Hebrides. I can’t imagine another breeder being able to match Diane and Paul’s care and commitment to raising well adjusted pups that experience the right level of enrichment at the right times during their early development – a stage so essential to set the pups on the right track to be balanced, healthy, happy adults in their new homes. From that point on, the rest is up to us, a responsibility shouldn’t be borne lightly.

Noma is now 6 months old and we have been working hard to maintain the bedrock of socialisation and training Diane provided for her.  She continues to be outgoing, effervescent and fabulous, taking everything in her stride from gundog training (we are novices - she knows exactly what she’s doing!) to ringcraft classes. Diane continues to support us in these new endeavours and we are grateful for the wealth of experience she freely shares with us.  We very much look forward to giving Noma the life she deserves, be it hunting on the hill or just chilling out on the couch with Darwin, and everything in between.

Thank you Diane for raising our wonderful wires, without which the last decade or so would not have been anywhere near as special for having them as part of our family.

“We have had the pleasure of being part of the Leiborschy Family for over 12 years. If you want a Hungarian Wire Haired Viszla, there are a number of breeders throughout the Country but if you are looking for a Hungarian Wire Haired Viszla plus advice and support for your dog throughout its lifetime and lots of interaction with other owners then Leiborschy may be just right for you.

Shaynee is the latest Leib addition to our family. She is a beautiful, confident and healthy puppy and yet again we are totally smitten. It is no coincidence that Leiborschy puppies go out into the world, so well equipped for the next stage in their life journey – it is Diane’s dedication and expertise that produces such well-adjusted, wonderful examples of the breed 

Over the years, Diane has become a valued friend. We have never met a breeder who cares more about her dogs, her breeding and her owners and we are truly grateful for the day that we discovered Leiborschy.”

Over the past 50 years we have owned many beautiful dogs, mostly English Springers and Cocker Spaniels and when in March 2016 we lost our last Cocker Spaniel we decided to consider the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla ~ a breed which had first aroused our interest in 2013 while attending a Championship Dog show.

Our research into the breed involved visiting many shows up and down the country looking to see which kennels were producing the dogs which appealed to us, talking to many owners, purchasing a number of books and spending hours researching on the internet

Our enquiries and recommendations led us to the Leiborschy website which contained a great deal of information and a head study and video of Leiborschy Yendah ~ and there was our idea of the perfect Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla!

Diane's desire for the very best homes for her puppies was obvious from the first time we spoke ~ which we found very reassuring

We found Diane, with the support of Paul, is keen to mentor her puppies owners for the whole of their dog's lives. She is always there for an owner without ever becoming intrusive.

We soon realised that to become a Leiborschy owner you need to work hard at learning about this wonderful breed and be determined to make your puppy's welfare your top priority!

We have found Diane to be a top breeder but also a top person and she has always been there for us and our puppy Heidi  ~ and if anyone is fortunate enough to become a Leiborschy owner they will find  that the family of dedicated "Leib" owners extends throughout the length & breadth of the country and that they are always be there to offer new family members help & advice.

 Having had several Labradors in the past, all of which have had health issues of one type or another, we were keen to discover a breed which had a similar nature, ie loyal, fun loving, trainable, could compete in working trials but didn't have the health problems that we'd experienced in the past.  We fell upon the HWV by chance and have been thanking our lucky stars ever since. We researched the breeders in our area as we thought that as we were new to the breed that there were bound to be issues we hadn't even thought of and it would be good if there was someone on hand to guide us, Diane has more than lived up to our expectations.  From the first time we met both her and Paul it was obvious that their wealth of knowledge was formidable and that they weren't just in it for the money, unfortunately there are some unscrupulous breeders out there.   Their love of the breed is borne out by the fact they still seem to be in touch with most of the people who have been lucky enough to own one of their puppies, and they are always available when needed with support and advice.  We feel that not only are we owners of an amazing Leiborschy puppy who we have high hopes for in the future but are delighted to have become members of the wider family to share our experiences with.

Having recently lost our first wire haired vizsla and wanting to have another wire, we approached Diane and Paul having discovered a litter was being planned. Our first visit to them was to find out if we would be suitable ‘parents’ to one of the puppies. Our visit was a pleasure, a little nerve racking, but we were made very welcome by Diane and Paul and their dogs and found our visit very informative. Diane has a wealth of information that she is happy to share and we were delighted to be approved as prospective parents. Our next visit was a few weeks after the puppies had arrived but we felt we already knew them from the regular Facebook posts and photos that Diane supplied. We really felt we had joined a family as the other ‘parents’ and previous litter owners shared regular updates on Facebook. When we collected our puppy Diane and Paul supplied a fabulous ‘puppy pack’ with lots of information to help us look after our puppy for those vital first few weeks. Diane has also been available on the telephone whenever needed to help and advise with any questions, nothing is too silly to ask and she is always so supportive and knowledgeable. Our puppy is now approaching 4 months and has been an absolute delight, she settled with us so quickly. Diane and Paul put a great deal of effort into ensuring their puppies have been exposed to as many experiences and noises as possible and we have certainly found Gertie to be confident, happy and healthy and completely unperturbed by tractors, sirens, crowds, noisy children, traffic, wheelchairs etc etc. Loving those Leibs and looking forward to meeting up with the Leib family at the next get-together, Helen, Anton and Gertie.

Having been involved with dogs for over 30 years and in particular owning and showing Dobermanns, we decided that it was time to take a new direction with a view to owning a different breed.
After undertaking extensive research we decided that a Wire maybe the breed for us. We had admired them for a long while at shows but didn't really have the time to take the interest further. During the research we stumbled upon the Leib website and kept returning to it time and time again, we were drawn to the comments of the Lieb owners and the in depth information provided, we also loved the look of the dogs!
Having lost our last much loved Dobe we decided that we would pursue our curiosity of the Wire, hence we contacted Diane and Paul and after email exchanges and phone calls we arranged a visit to Leib HQ. The moment that we walked in we were captivated by their family of lovely dogs and after coffee, cake and a couple of hours of chatting we made our way home, having already decided that the Wire was the breed for us, we just hoped that we had met all of the criteria for the selection process.
As soon as we were approved as suitable prospective parents we were put on the PIW list for a Choni puppy.
What a wonderful journey we have been on ever since! We were kept informed during the pregnancy and the whelping with photographs and news from the moment the Sixpences were born through each stage of their development until the day arrived for us to pick up our little Sixpence (Frieda)
Taking our little one home was so emotional for Diane and Paul, I think we were all crying as we loaded the car up with food and bedding that Diane had kindly organised a bulk order for. We were given a beautiful baby bag full of lovely items for Frieda together with our puppy pack ( essential reading and is permanently on the kitchen worktop) which includes a wealth of information and advice, mementoes from her first few weeks of life, tools for development (CD sounds for life), a disc of photographs etc.
Frieda is now 4 months old and doing very well, she is a confident, well rounded, fun loving pup, she loves everybody and everybody loves her. This is all contributed to the excellent start she has had during her first 8 weeks of life and the unending support from Diane and Paul ( reminders to worm, when it is time to reduce the number of meals etc.) they are always there for a chat, an email exchange or for compliments on the Leib Family Facebook Group ( and what a great group it is).
We cannot thank Diane and Paul enough for entrusting us with one of their precious puppies, we feel honoured and Proud to be part of the family. We are just so grateful that we stumbled upon the website! "

When we lost our much loved 14 year old GWP in late 2013 little did we know what lay ahead for us in our attempt to find another dog.

We decided that HWV were for us and began our research. We learned about the importance of breeding stock health checks for HD and HUU (the latter was new to us). On a professional basis Keith has dealt with many breeders, some of whom did not impress him with their approach. When we contacted Diane we were immediately impressed. It transpired that she had once lived in this part of Cumbria, a good start. She welcomed our questions and queries. We agreed to make a visit to Leiborschy HQ to see the set up.

All went well and our roller coaster ride began. The initial planned mating was unsuccessful which was unfortunate but we decided to wait for Lincoln and Griet's litter. We were devastated to hear that Griet had lost her life after producing her litter of Expectations. Along came surrogate mum Tia. This time must have been so difficult for Diane and Paul to deal with. If it hadn't been for the help so freely offered by good friends, the outcome for the litter could have been so different.

We travelled to HQ again to choose our puppy. We felt as if we know each of the puppies because, despite being so busy, Diane had sent weekly update photos of the litter.

Our choice was not easy but we decided on a male and named him Induna. Three weeks later we collected him and set off on the three and a half hour journey back to Cumbria, armed with the best puppy pack we have ever seen as well as detailed feeding information. Induna was a shooting star. He was handsome, friendly, bright and calm. He brightened our world for five short weeks, sadly he  became ill and needed surgery, which he never survived. This was a terrible time for us. Diane and Paul, as well as other owners that we had never met gave us both a great deal of support. This was greatly appreciated.

We were determined to continue our quest for a Leiborschy puppy. We made further enquiries with Diane about future planned litters. We were shocked to hear that she still had Induna's litter brother who was available. After less than a day's discussion, we travelled south again and collected Jabu. His name is a Zulu male name meaning “rejoice”, quite fitting we thought. This was an emotional time for us all. But of course Jabu was blissfully unaware of this of course and we were soon fully occupied settling him into his new home.

Words cannot describe what we both feel. Jabu is everything that we wanted from a new puppy. Diane described him as “kind”. He is much more than that. He's gentle, clever, calm, playful, funny, cheeky, affectionate and he loves to interact with us all, especially in his training.

This breed is very special. In our opinion, they are not for everyone. They are sensitive so need to be allowed to make choices when they interact with strangers as well as their day to day lives. Raised voices or punitive measures would simply make them shut down.

We are now proud to be part of the Leiborschy family. We are also thankful to our new friends, Diane and Paul for their help and support and understanding.

"Evaluating our Leiborschy expectations against our experiences has not been difficult to do. Diane and Paul have demonstrated to us their high standards of both puppy and owner care and satisfaction from:
* The first contact by telephone.
* Meeting the immediate Leiborschy family.
* Visiting the special expectation puppies.
* The detailed written support pack we received.
* Ongoing support, advice and aftercare.
* Networking with the other owners of the litter.
* Becoming a member of the Leiborschy family.
* Keeping in contact with the pups throughout their lives.
In our opinion team Leiborschy should be the benchmark that all other breeders should strive to achieve. As novice first time owners of this wonderful breed the aftercare service provided to us post collection of our adorable Leiborschy puppy has been excellent and very much appreciated. It has been necessary for us to know that we can contact Diane and Paul for advice and support. We have been steered through the problems we have encountered and in every case solutions have been identified. We have appreciated the regular updates with regard to our puppies development requirements as our puppy grows we have become more confident in meeting our puppies needs and we have no hesitation in contacting Diane and Paul for advice, support and a chat. Clearly we would recommend Diane and Paul to anyone interested in owning a HWHV. We would love another Leiborschy puppy in the future as a companion for Mylo and to complete our family."

I came across Wirehaired Vizsla's almost by accident. I had spent a very wet lunchtime indoors browsing the internet idly contemplating future dogs and came across a breed I had not given much thought or attention to. The more I read about them the more I wanted to read and the more they sounded like just the sort of dog I would one day be looking for. I still had my old dog so the search to that point was mostly fantasy. The weather continued to be unsuitable for going out for a walk at lunchtimes and I found myself back online reading more and more about wirehaired vizslas, browsing photos and hunting down breeders. I kept returning to the Leiborschy website and decided that I needed to get in touch and meet some wires to decide if this was just fantasy or a serious long-term option. After many, many re-writes an email eventually got sent and Diane and I corresponded back and forth before setting a date in late spring for me to come and meet the Wires (and her and Paul too). We had chosen late spring with the hope of good weather so we could sit in the garden, on the day we sat inside and watched it rain. Having thought I would be staying not much more than an hour I had arranged to meet friends in the area for lunch. Three hours later, after meeting the wires, getting a guided tour, drinking lots of tea, eating home-made cakes and almost talking ourselves hoarse I bid them all a fond farewell and set off for a rather late lunch.
 
The next day I emailed to say thank you for letting me visit, that the Wires were what I was hoping for and, when the time came, would she be willing to let me be mum to one of her precious pups? The answer came back yes! We continued to correspond, keeping each other up to date with the happenings of various animals and the odd human here and there.
 
A few weeks after I had said the last goodbye to my old girl I got an email from Diane saying that Griet's scan showed a larger than expected litter and there might be a "homeless" pup and did I want to be considered as a potential owner if there was? No pressure to say yes or no but the option was there and let her know - preferably before the pups arrived. I was about to leave for a long weekend away and took the opportunity to have a think about it. When, on the drive home, I found myself thinking of potential names for a new pup I realised that the answer was going to be yes. I was then introduced, via email, to all the other new puppy parents in waiting and have shared with them all the joys and heartaches of this litter. I am looking forward to meeting them all in real life and seeing all the pups again at the get-together in February.
 
Even before they were born we were all kept up to date with events and once they arrived there was a steady stream of photos, videos, status updates and general tales of puppy adventures. There was a puppy for me and the timing of her coming home was just right, she waltzed into my life and home, paused to take a look around and has just taken everything since then in her stride. She came home with lots of fabulous information and supplies and the after-care and support from Diane and Paul has been superb. Just because the pups are now in their homes the photos, stories and updates have not stopped, they just now go from the proud puppy parents back to Diane, Paul and all the other members of the Expectations family. I am looking forward to spending many many years being chauffer, chef, secretary, fan club manager, P.R. officer and all round devoted and doting Mum to Hilda.

"We have known Diane for well over a decade now and Lola is the third Leiborschy dog that we have had the pleasure of welcoming into our home.

Leiborschy dogs are loving, well socialised and an exceptional example of the breed and Diane is as experienced and knowledgeable a breeder as you could hope to find. She cares deeply about her puppies both before they go to their new homes and afterwards. She is careful to choose the right owners and encourages them to keep in touch and is always happy to give advice when requested.

Diane organises get-togethers for the dogs and their humans in the form of training days or Vizsla days out. These are very popular and it is great to meet and get to know the other owners.

Through our Leiborschy journey we have gained so much more that we could ever have imagined, in the form of three beautiful dogs, a dear friend and a whole Leiborschy family who are happy to share photos, knowledge, experiences and laughter.

We are the luckiest of families and not just because we have a puppy bouncing around us with all the charm, mischief and adventure any puppy brings. I believe we are lucky because we have a Leiborschy puppy. Our second one actually. We first met Diane when we went to meet breeds and breeders at Discover Dogs. Otto was our first pup and from the start Diane helped us choose a dog to suit first time owners and owners with three young children at that. She helped through many stages of his life and cried with us when he died. We would not have chosen a different breed or a different breeder for our next dog. Personally, I don't see Diane as a breeder with the negative connections that word implies. She gives them life, love and the foundations for their lives. Our new pup is five months old and Diane is always there, advice yes but also sharing our delight at the odd milestones in a puppy's life - first unintentional swim in the river, fighting Santa's hat etc. Having a dog in your life is too big a responsibility to leave to chance and we know that Diane's extraordinary care means that her dogs are incredible partners for life. One of many lucky families really but of course we think we are just the very luckiest!

Our main worry about contacting Diane about a puppy, was, would we measure up to her very high standards for prospective guardians? We had visited her many years before just to see the breed in the flesh. There were no litters planned, so on that occasion we had to go elsewhere. But we were left with a very positive impression of the Leiborschy dogs and Diane.
When our old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever bitch died, we waited a couple of years before thinking about another dog, and thoughts turned to Diane. I watched the web site regularly to see when a litter was being planned, and contacted Diane as soon as one was announced. We presented ourselves for inspection, and spent a few very enjoyable hours with her and her wonderful dogs. We were accepted and added to the list.

 

That litter did not materialise due to a problem with the stud, but we asked to be kept in mind for the next mating. We were not too dismayed, as we both liked Griet, and were happy to wait.
The very sad story of the birth of the puppies and the death of Griet was a shock, and the heroic efforts of Diane and Paul, aided by volunteers from Diane’s HWV friends really showed a rock solid dedication to her dogs.

 

We now have a gorgeous wee bitch, and the “after sales service” would put Rolls Royce to shame. It’s like joining a club, and a very good one at that.

Diane - this has quite simply been the most amazing experience from start to finish.
 

We are experienced WHV owners and have also bred a couple of litters with Mallard being the sire of both. However, the opportunity to own a Leiborschy pup has always been something we wished for and in 2013 this became a reality!
 
We have known you now for around 6 years and first chanced upon you when we were making enquiries about a stud dog. How lucky were we to pick up the phone to you all those years ago???
 
You became our mentor and very soon a dear friend and now, of course, you are the breeder of our dear Olive!
 
We value your opinion greatly and trust your judgement completely which is why we came to you for our next wire
 
Olive is simply the most beautiful, relaxed, happy, mischievous confident puppy we have ever lived with and this entire experience has been nothing short of perfect!
 
Thank you so much for entrusting one of your little ones to us, we will always take care of her and ensure she has a wonderful life - she is just too precious to settle for anything less!

First a quick line on how we found Diane and Leiborschy..... We contacted Diane 5 years ago when considering another dog after we saw Crufts Friends for Life winner Leiborschy Yepa on TV and became instantly smitten with the look and manner of the breed. We'd been researching our next dog for a while and considered a smooth Vizsla unaware that the Wire coat existed, our attention quickly turned to the HWV, much web browsing later and every aspect of the breed looked perfect for us.

We looked into many breeders, carefully perusing their web sites thinking about a puppy, we agreed that Leiborschy was THE breeder at the top of our list and the one to contact first. On our initial contact with Diane, we found she had no planned litters at the time but she made the effort to put us in touch with another breeder so..... along came Kipper.

When the time was right for another dog, companion for us and mate for Kipper, we were 100% determined that he would be a Wire and a Leiborschy Wire, so made contact again. From this point, the communication with Diane has been and still is first class, communication with your chosen breeder, we now realise thanks to Diane, is one of the most important aspects of responsible dog ownership, nothing is left to chance, Diane will make sure of that!!

So after several emails and phone calls we were invited to Leiborschy HQ to meet Diane and Paul and the resident Leiborschy wires. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed in to what is definitely the home of a family breeder who clearly loves all of her dogs. Our visit was very informal and we got to know Diane and Paul and the wires, at no point did we feel we were being interviewed 1but looking back we think Diane and Paul and the wires were getting the measure of us Herberts from far away. Diane explained her planned litters for the future and that we may be put onto a waiting list at some point. When we found out we were put onto the waiting list for the Mallard / Griet litter we were over the moon. From that point on we were informed every step of the way of every occurrence right up to the births,
then weekly photos and reports on the puppies progress in the very capable hands of Diane and Paul.

We have never been left wondering or uncertain about any aspect of the Leiborschy way and have always felt confident and reassured that they are a breeder of distinction and only the very best is good enough and that their full support would always be there. Another amazing aspect of becoming a Leiborschy parent is that contact with other Leiborschy parents is not only possible but actively encouraged by Diane which gives a brilliant source of information allowing some comparisons between siblings.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Leiborschy to anyone, but would suggest that you are not just "buying a puppy", with Leiborschy, you are being allowed into an extraordinary extended family of Wires, owners and of course Diane and Paul. So if you just want to buy a puppy perhaps look at other breeders or maybe a different breed, all Diane's Leibs, be them at home or away , young or old, are clearly very precious to her.

In our first Wire we found a breed for life, in Leiborschy we found a breeder for life.

Hello Diane, just dropping you a note to say that I sent off my form to the kennel club to record my experience of buying a puppy from you. I found it really difficult to convey the fullness of the experience on a form. Although we already have a Leiborschy puppy, who is now three years old, I had forgotten the detailed, high quality experience that is buying a Leib puppy. The involvement starts pre conception and we were involved every step of the way, right down to scan pictures, your open welcome to come to see the puppies in situ is commendable and exemplary. I have never spoken to anyone else who has had such a full and worthwhile involvement in their puppy's development. The result is a well adjusted, absolutely delightful puppy, which has already been encouraged to develop its personality.
You are the Rolls Royce of breeders. There is no other for me.

"Leiborschy Maisie is the second HWHV we are fortunate enough to have from Diane Parry. Diane has an extraordinary ability to understand not only the breed but also the people who wish to own a puppy from the Leiborschy family. Her guidance, support and aftercare are ‘par excellence’ and we consider ourselves fortunate to experience the professionalism and friendship from this lady.

Penny & Bryan Spencer"

When you are thinking about introducing a new dog into your home, for what hopefully will be well in excess of 10 years it's pretty self evident you need to do some research. We identified what we were looking for from our dog: an easy going family pet, reasonably biddable, affectionate, medium size who will enjoy hikes around Scotland.
We decided HWV was the breed for us so we desk researched as many breeders as we could. Having completed this phase we identified Leiborschy as the breeder we would like to take to the next stage. A fact finding telephone conversation, for both Diane and us, resulted in my wife and I making the 500 miles round trip to meet Diane and her wires.
A lengthy informal chat and time with the wires on the visit convinced us we were going to have a Leiborschy pup. Diane approved of us and included us in her book of acceptable owners.
After that Diane kept us informed of progress leading to conception. When Griet gave birth the level on information increased exponentially now including You Tube videos, weight gain, early personality traits amongst other things.
Diane has a tried and test process to help people choose which is going to be their puppy which worked well for us.
We have also had contact since we brought Eszti home as Diane has been more than willing to give support.
My view is you should probably not contact her if you have just decided to have any type of puppy on the off chance as I suspect you will be given short shrift.
All in all a caring well organised breeder, I can say no more than we will be having a second wire from Diane next year.

Where do we start ? - I suppose a short introduction about us and what made us find this wonderful breed and more importantly why Diane & Leiborschy ?

We are a family of 4 – myself - Kathy, Ian and our two boys James (11yrs) & Jack(6yrs). Our boys had grown up with Shadow, our previous dog – lab cross – who, unfortunately, left us 3-4 years ago. Both boys were heartbroken and didn’t want to replace her and I have to admit, after 16 years, neither did Ian or I. Fast forward a year or two and I was leaving my job to be at home more and missing the companionship of a four legged friend. I voiced my idea of getting a puppy and although there was some hesitation, as no one wanted to replace Shadow, we decided to ‘move forward’ and consider what breed. I wanted a gundog thou something a bit ‘special’, the boys didn’t really know what they wanted other than a friend and playmate and Ian wanted what we did!

A holiday in Devon …… out of the cottage window I saw a HWV playing in the neighbour’s garden, I showed the boys and they approved so I knocked on the door, the owners extolled his virtues and I decided that this was the breed for us.

Arriving home I was straight onto the internet and the research began. Where-ever I looked and whichever dogs we liked we kept coming back to Leiborschy. After several visits to the site, reading testimonials, looking at the pictures, agreeing wholeheartedly with her Ethos … I finally plucked up the courage to phone Diane for more information. I still remember Diane telling me she had a few minutes spare and then me coming off the phone some 30 minutes later. We arranged to visit Diane so that we could meet her and her dogs and more importantly she could meet us and see whether we were a suitable family for a ‘wire’- and more importantly a ‘Leib’.

The look on James’ face as he sat on the settee with Mallard & Nona for company was a picture and with Griet waiting for some attention too Ian & I talked with Diane and with some relief were listed in the ‘Silver Book’ as a ‘puppy in waiting’ family. And wait we did !!

This litter wasn’t called the ‘Eventuallies’ without reason, Yanah wasn’t to be rushed into anything ! The relief when she came into season, had a scan and then the big day when the pup’s were born. Then the worry as there were only 2 boys, we had initially wanted a boy, but they were taken so a change to our plan was needed. Many phone calls later as well as a couple of visits to see the ‘Leiblings’- this was a true test to Yanah’s temperament as my 2 boys very proudly sat in amongst the pups (3weeks old) whilst she kept a sleepy watchful eye, led to us eventually (with Diane’s guidance) choosing Madison to come home with us and join our family.

I really cannot speak highly enough of Diane. The hours of dedication and true grit that she put in to this litter, and the Leiborschy name all along, has led to us having one of the most laid back puppies I have ever met! Diane is always there on the end of a phone or e.mail if needed and hardly a day goes by without me popping onto the forum to see what’s happening in my new ‘family’.

You don’t just get a puppy – you get a new way of life and a new family.

Things have ‘moved forward’ - We have the smartest puppy in our puppy class, have already started HPR training and have thrown a bit of Ringcraft into the mix as well - and all this for our ‘companion’.

And what a companion she is - the boys wouldn’t be without her and she is my true ‘velcro’ dog – Where is she now ? Trying to fit 19kg of puppy onto my lap (-;

Thank you Diane for our Marvellous Madison

We'd been 'dogless' since our beloved rescue dog Molly died.
We couldn't decide on a breed so visited Crufts and came home with a shortlist (all gun dogs), but once we'd looked at the wire haired Vizla, we were smitten.
Researched accredited breeders through the Kennel Club, and something about Leiborschy struck a chord. We liked their ethos, and I phoned Diane to find out more. I expected a brief first contact, but was impressed by the amount of time she spent talking to me about the dogs and what we wanted. The phone call was followed by e-mails and visits. Our first visit and we knew we were being assessed, by both Diane - and her dogs. Luckily we passed and our name went in the book. Once accepted, we were kept informed of Yanah (mum's) progress and we were just involved at every stage.
 
When the pups were born I couldn't stay away from the computer, checking out pics and progress, and eagerly watching their development. We had two more visits, one to choose our pup and then to collect. Diane was a great help, we spent time with all the litter, before choosing. As it had been a number of years since we had a puppy, Diane's help and advice was invaluable, even to acquiring food, bedding etc. We could ask Diane any question and were never made to feel stupid.
Leiborschy is like a big extended family, and although we don't go on the forum as often now, we know everyone will help if we need advice on anything.
Finally, our puppy Bella is the most laid back, well adjusted puppy you could hope for and I believe that is down to Diane's care and love for her dogs that gave her such a fantastic start in life.

Well, we are all settled with our beautiful 17 week old puppy, Scout. It hasn't been an easy ride, but we didn't want or expect that….

We had researched breeds for a long time, having always had Weimaraners we were ready for a change of direction, and we came upon the HWV. After much asking around and further research we came upon Diane and Leiborschy. If we had wanted an easy picking we should have gone elsewhere! Diane gave us a mini-interview on the telephone and then agreed that we could come and visit, to meet the grown-up dogs. Several weeks later and a four hour journey by car we arrived at The Parry’s. We spent a good deal of time asking Diane about many aspects of HWV and she in turn asked us many questions. We knew from then on this was a ‘family venture’. This would not be a buy a pup and off we go situation. Which suited us perfectly, but may not suit anyone who wants to just disappear with their puppy!

After Diane felt reassured that we would make suitable owners to a HWV pup we were allowed to be put in the ‘silver book’ but only after we knew what we were letting ourselves in for ;-)

Several months later after full involvement via email and telephone we were finally allowed to go and choose our puppy – we valued Diane’s input here, as we had never had a HWV before she guided us as to which pup would be suitable for our family. We then only had a few weeks wait to go and pick her up. The story normally ends when you go back and pick your puppy up…. But not with a ‘Leib’. Diane (and the forum) have always been available to answer questions, offer support and advise and share experiences. She helped with buying the food for the puppy, the bedding, toilet training, reminders for worming – I could go on! We could have managed without her, as we always had to do without the breeder when we have bought previous dogs – but I know that Diane’s on-going support has brought us massive amounts of confidence and help with Scout. Scout is the most well adjusted, bright, puppy we have ever owned and I know it is that strong start that Diane gave her at the beginning that has stood us all in good stead. We stuck to the rules and boy did we benefit. We have a pup that is perfect for us and I like to think we are perfect for her!

So if you want to just buy a puppy and run, then maybe you won’t want to be part of the Leiborschy family, but if you want to truly belong and benefit from life-long help and support for your puppy then maybe think about making contact!

Following extensive research into HWVs I suddenly came across the You Tube videos of the Loanstars litter and was immediately besotted by these little creatures. I was further attracted by the very informative and well thought out Leiborschy website and so decided to contact Diane and Jonathan with regard to acquiring another HWV (we already had 2). When we eventually visited them, they were both extremely welcoming and so were their dogs - the Leiborschy dogs are part of the family, live in the house and are very friendly and playful – with the result that we were smitten from the start. Having discussed at length the reason for us wanting another puppy, we were advised to go home, think about it, and if we wanted to go ahead and be put on the puppy list, then we should e-mail Diane.

Of course, it didn’t take long for us to decide and we then became a ‘Puppy In Waiting’ (PIW) and were given access to the Leiborschy Forum. I have to say that this Forum is an absolutely brilliant and well utilised mine of information which is efficiently monitored by Diane who also contributes as she sees fit. It is clear from the Forum entries that the owners Diane and Jonathan have chosen for their puppies are amazing people, the love they have for their dogs clearly showing through their postings. These people are also very ready to help, provide tips or anything else to do with Wires, and are so welcoming that the prospective owner immediately feels that he/she has become an accepted member of the Leiborschy extended family. This in itself is a huge bonus and makes me feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to become a member of it myself.

As soon as Yanah came into whelp, we PIWs were regularly informed of her progress and immediately the puppies were born, updates on theirs and their mum’s development were given several times a week along with weekly photographs. Words cannot really describe the wonderful sense of involvement that this provided, and needless to say, to me it was something I have never, ever experienced from a breeder before. The videos taken of the puppies in action in their nest were awe inspiring and a tear was never far from my eye when I played them over and over again.

Now we have Zak, Leiborschy Yazarek: our own wonderful and gorgeous little boy, and who constantly delights us with his antics. If I have a query, Diane is always there with an answer and her advice is given in a clear and confident manner. This, in itself, is a much admired and valuable quality as it can sometimes be a difficult process to raise a puppy without having appropriate back up from the breeder. Diane, I have to say, is outstanding in the love and dedication she gives to all her dogs, be it her own or to every other one that she has bred. To me, therefore, she surpasses all that one could normally expect from a breeder, and more.

All in all, we are so glad that we chose to approach Leiborschy and ecstatic that Leiborschy decided to choose us.

 

To Diane, our very best wishes

Why and how did we acquire a WH Viszla? We lost our beloved Great Dane in September 2011, she was over ten so had had a good innings for such a large dog. In the summer of that year I had come across a Viszla in a car park and I inquired from the owner what sort of a dog she was as I had never seen one before and thence I started my research on the breed and found a list of breeders and to my surprise there was one only ten minutes drive away from us in Norfolk where we live.
After Remy was put down I contacted Jane who was going to breed from her bitch about January 2012, we put our name down for a puppy and kept in contact.
Our daughter Jess was leaving for Australia for a year on 10th January 2012 for a year so as you can imagine was pretty upset when I got a phone call from Jane the day before to say that Dolly wasn't going to have puppies this year but she new of one near Doncaster that we may be able to have IF the breeder thought we would be suitable owners. So it was with great trepidation that we made the trip to Diane on 13th January to have a look at the then Brona knowing full well that it was not going to be a case of just handing over the money and taking her home, we had to liked by Diane as much as the puppy liking us!
Before the trip I got everything in place at home (just in case) and off we went. Well for us it was love at first sight. We were so impressed with the set up that Diane had, all her dogs were obviously healthy and happy and apart from her family were her life. It was also apparent that Diane would not let her dogs go to just anyone which to us was so important to us but would we make the grade?
Well we must of as we took Ruby back with us that day and she has been an utter delight, she is a happy, healthy puppy full of beans and eager to learn which is a credit to Diane and the way she has given Ruby a wonderful start to her young life. She has been an utter joy so far and has helped us in our sadness at Jess leaving, when I feel a bit sad Ruby will come along and make me smile.
I can honestly say I think we had Ruby for a reason, she has had her first walk on a local beach today and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of meeting lots of dogs even another Viszla! and of course a lot of attention from other walkers.
Thankyou Diane for giving us this special dog called Ruby

I have dreamt of having a HWV for a very long time. I had been a regular visitor to Diane's website over the years, and plucked up the courage to finally contact her during 2010. After spending nearly an hour on the phone, with Diane answering all my questions and chatting about all things wire, we arranged for me to visit. What struck me most about that first visit was how very much she cares about her dogs, each one is individually very special to her. She is very knowledgable about the breeding of each and every single litter she plans is not undertaken lightly. Her attention to detail is second to non.
I visited several times over the next eighteen months, introducing my husband and children to Diane, and she in turn introduced us to others who already belonged to the Leiborschy family. We were made very welcome by everyone even though we didn't own a Leib.
Diane kept us informed as to what was happening with Yanah, who was to have the litter. When she was mated, weekly updates and photos of Yanah as the pregnancy progressed, when she was to be scanned, and an email confirming that she was indeed in whelp.
At the time of whelping Diane texted updates as and when things were happening, and the news at the end of the day that the puppies had all arrived and mum and babes were doing well. It was wonderful how she included us with the updates allowing us to share spiritually in the experience.
Regular emails now came with photos, puppies weights and details of how the litter was progressing. Despite lack of sleep, the worry and the emotion a new litter brings, Diane kept us constantly involved with the puppies developement. She made sure we were ready to welcome a new puppy into our home, and guided us in the choice we made. As with the planning and care of the litter her puppy pack, aftercare, and advice is well thought out, detailed and comprehensive.
Lincoln has been with us now for 8 weeks, it is like he has always been here. He is the most delightful, laid back little chap, who has fitted in so well with the family and our two smooth coated vizslak. I feel incredibly grateful to Diane, for introducing us to the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla, welcoming us into her home and the Leiborschy clan, and most of all for entrusting this special puppy into our care.

Dilys is my second HWV and is a superb example of the breed, both in looks and temperament.

From my first contact with Diane I have been extremely impressed with the high standards she has, not only for her dogs but also of potential owners,
On picking up Dilys I was given a very comprehensive puppy pack and assured support - whenever! This support has been invaluable. On the occasions I have emailed Diane - usually for reassurance that I was doing the right
thing - her response has been almost immediate and always very encouraging.
I cannot praise Leiborschy too much. I wish all breeders were of this high standard.
If you have decided that a HWV is right for you, then I would recommend you contact Diane.

We happened across the Leib Tribe just by pure lucky chance....... We'd been researching the breed and had decided it was the breed for us, but needed to learn more about line-breeding and out-crossing and the philosophy behind them. We decided the best course of action would be to ask a breeder we had not so far been in contact with (having spoken to three over the phone and met up with one other), so Ian basically looked at the breeders list and more or less stuck a pin in, which landed on Diane.....and here I am now with the most beautiful, confident, sparky little HWV puppy curled up by my feet
As it turned out, the litter had been born 3 days before our phone call and after establishing that Diane was the breeder for us, we had to ensure that she would entrust us with one of her precious Leiblings. So off to N Lincolnshire we went to meet the crowd. Diane was very generous with her time and let us get to know the grown up dogs first, before leading us through to meet the litter (read here: Diane spent quite a long time determining whether we were worthy of meeting her pups and finally decided we were!!!).
To be absolutely honest the level of commitment Diane provided for those pups was really astonishing..... correction... IS really astonishing - as she continues to provide advice and support as necessary. I have no doubt that Indy had the BEST start to her young life with such devoted attention and care. She really is one very happy secure puppy,
In addition to this, joining the Leiborschy family is like joining a new club..... I feel we are already getting to know other leib owners through the forum, and we're looking forward to actually meeting everybody (and seeing all the gorgeous "Eventuallies" again) at the ringcraft day in Feb.

Joining the Leib family …

The web site attracted me in the first instance and having plucked up courage to make contact and ask to come and meet the dogs, I was immediately welcomed into Diane and Jonathan’s house. I’m not daft and I knew I was being vetted and that actually served to make me feel really comfortable, knowing that this was not just a money making venture – these people really cared about their dogs and were very keen to ensure they went to appropriate homes.

A mating was imminent and puppies would be available in about 6 months … nothing was getting me out of the house until I knew my name was in the Silver Book!

Throughout the long wait for the arrival of the litter, I was kept informed and educated into all things Wire, through emails to Diane and contact through the Forum on the excellent web site.

After the arrival of the puppies I was welcomed to visit on numerous occasions and guided in my choice of puppy, according to what I wanted from the new arrival. On every occasion I was impressed by the care and attention given to raising a well socialised and well reared litter. Diane’s life was completely dedicated to this litter and it showed in the quality of environment they were in.

Since the splendid puppy arrived at my house, I have had constant support even over the most trivial things. I know that I can post questions on the forum and receive plenty of advice, but more importantly, I know I can go straight to Diane by phone or email, and receive sensible, no-nonsense advice from a highly respected breeder, who clearly has the interests of the dogs at heart.

There is no chance of handing over the cash and walking away with a puppy. Diane wants to be sure that dog and human are well matched and that everything is as it should be before the puppy leaves her. She ensured that I had a very high quality puppy information pack, that I had good quality food ready, worming solution ready, beds, leads, everything absolutely right and ready. She keeps in touch, sends reminders when vaccinations or wormings are due.

If I think of everything a breeder SHOULD be, how careful they should be about who is taking a puppy, how well brought up the puppies should be, how much follow up should be expected, Diane and Jonathan surpass all that.

Thank heavens I found them.

We can honestly say that our experience with Diane and Jonathan as the breeders of our happy, healthy puppy has been very, very special indeed.
Prior to meeting with Diane and her gorgeous dogs we had little knowledge of HWV. Our first introduction to this breed was at crufts where we saw these dogs in the show ring and where we instantly fell in love with them. Being novices though at buying and owning a puppy we were conscious of the fact we wanted to do all that we could to find a reputable breeder, so we contacted the Kennel club who directed us to Diane.
Our initial contact with Diane was via emaill where she began to vet us as to whether we would be suitable owners. It was clear from the start that Diane cared deeply for the dogs that she has and the litter that she was planning and would not settle for them going to just any home. Far from putting us off, this reassured us and on meeting Diane and her dogs and listening to the wealth of knowledge that she had about the breed, what our puppy would expect from us, how we could provide this and spending a couple of hours with her lovely dogs, we felt very honoured and excited to be put on the list for one of the puppies planned for the summer.
We went from April to August which seemed like an age but Diane kept us informed throughout about the progress of Yeva's pregnancy, scans etc and when the pups were born we were able to follow their progress through all of the lovely pictures posted on the website and through emails that Diane sent to keep us up to speed. We felt like we already knew the puppies before we met them for the first time. The only problem came when we had to pick our puppy. How do you choose just one, when each is as gorgeous as the last?
So we have had Neo for just over a month now and still Diane maintains the valuable support network, something, I am pleased to say, that will continue throughout Neo's life. I can confidently say that Diane goes above and beyond what is expected of a breeder and I would not like to purchase a dog any other way. Neo could not have been given a better start in life, what more could we ask for? Thanks Diane.

Hello
Here's what happened for us!
In May 200 we lost our first dog Oz a beautiful Old English Sheepdog and such was the trauma we decided that we couldn't go through that ever again.
Then this summer the fickle hand of fate dealt her cards in such a way that we are now the proud owners of Paddy our Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla puppy.
Let me explain; we still loved dogs, but resisted the urge to get back onto the bike, that was until we met a fabulous dog in a beer garden in Cornwall in August this year
.
I will be absolutely honest I had never heard of a Vizsla let alone a Wirehaired one, we were just captivated by this big larger than life character who was in our view a proper dog!
So the seed was sown, we returned from holiday still talking about this experience and via the wondrous internet we found out more about the breed and even discovered a few breeders, and the Leiborschy site.
It all looked too good to be true, but it wasn't, I contacted Diane and after a 45 minute telephone interview! well conversation, (there are strict requirements to be met before you are considered as a potential owner) we agreed to visit to see the new litter.
We duly visited one Sunday afternoon and after a couple of hours we had passed the selection and were on the list!!
I am not trivialising this, the process is to match her puppies with the best possible owners, and given the communication that I have had with the other owners, they all seem to be really great folks with a shared love of the breed.
We were very honest that we are unlikely to show Paddy, our primary motivation was to have a beautiful pet, and this was never questioned.
The hardest part of the process was choosing, fortunately as we were not showing and were fairly late in the process we only had a few to choose from, but it was a real challenge, but Diane seems to be good at steering you towards a particular dog. She assesses the dogs character and the new owners personality, experience and requirements to help you decide.
With no regard to breed standard I had an idea of the type of chap we were after so my request for 'the biggest hairiest dog' was probably an unusual request, but one which didn't phase Diane!
So we chose and then collected our puppy, but the most reassuring element is the support you get as a new owner, regular e mail updates about Paddy's brothers & sisters, answers to any questions, and the knowledge that Diane & Jonathan are only a phone call away with help and advice, and she is planning to get the litter together early in the new year with other Leiborschy brethren.
We are delighted with our new edition and are delighted to be part of the Leiborschy Family.

Dear Jonathan and Diane

Well here we are – with another Leiborschy puppy. Who knew that 3 years later we’d be back to do it all again?!! Actually I did, and I suspect you’d guessed that one wire wouldn’t be enough J

I just wanted to say another big thank you for our latest ‘experience’, from early discussions right through to choosing Syrus you’ve provided great advice, good hospitality and a healthy dash of common-sense. Syrus is such a delightful dog and we absolutely thrilled to have him.

Whilst I’m writing my thank you’s I also want to say how much we value your help and support for not only our Leiborschy dogs, Ylai and Syrus, but for our mongrel Finn too. Your timely question about an obstruction quite probably saved his life and there is no thank you big enough for that so ‘cheers – here’s to another 4 years of good dog advice and valued friendship’.

Much love from, Rebecca, Mel, Jack and Lily and the woofs (Finn, Ylai and Syrus)

We only came into your breed family Leiborschy late on in the puppy process but we can say hand on heart its been the best puppy purchase experience we have ever had.
Your professionalism and dedication to your breed, your own dogs and the new arrivals is second to none.
Its been an eye opener for us especially after experiencing another "top breeders" methods of sale only just last year.
Luckily for us our first wirehaired vizsla Monty has turned out to be fantastic and left us in no doubt about the breed.
Even more luckily this time we found Leiborschy and our puppy George.
From our initial meeting we knew everything was right and it got better and better.
When we picked up our puppy everything was prepared and explained excellently. The puppy pack is by far the best we have ever seen.
Since returning home the ongoing support and help from Diane is really re-assuring even after owning dogs for many years.
We would like to thank Diane and the Leiborschy team for all their hard work and continued support.
Yours sincerely
Iain, Karen and Lucy Randell

Good afternoon

Just to introduce myself...I am Bev ...often known as kiz or kizzy... www.kizkiznobite.co.uk

I am a canine psychologist/behaviourist specialising in gundogs and strongly believe giving credit where credit is due...especially in these times of such negativity against pedigree breeders and pedigree dogs.

As you may know, I have been to do an assessment on Kupa today; and so i would just like to say what a credit he is to you...well bred...well raised...excellent temperament...absolutely gorgeous.... all in all a healthy wee boyo.... that is just...well...to die for...I think I said more than once ok...tell you what?...I will take him home with me now :) and...With a client base of over 30 active at any one point 200 in sleep mode...that is not said lightly...I rarely see a dog that I would want for myself...he is a super wee boy and he has done you proud.

I do not break client confidentiality so I am only be prepared to discuss aspects of training/re-modification with the owners consent...but I assure you I will do my very best to get him to where his loving carers want him to be.

Kind regards

Kupa has been with us since 2nd October 2009 and what a joy it is to have him greet you every morning. He is developing into everything we’d hoped for, an affectionate dog and clever companion on our country walks.

Over the past couple of years we had been thinking long and hard about having an HWV puppy to join our family. Our research of breeders led us to the Leiborschy website. Most of our questions were answered there, however during our first contact with Diane and Jonathan we quickly realised that they had quite a few to ask us. It was still quite early in Yendah’s pregnancy and they encouraged us to visit before the litter was born.

During this initial meeting we discussed the characteristics of the HWV and whether this breed would be a good match for our lifestyle. We were given information about the pedigree and sire. It was a relaxed and enjoyable visit meeting the impressive Leiborschy family of HWV and wonderful mum-to-be Yendah whose quiet affectionate nature made up our minds there and then. We were very happy to know that at this stage we had been accepted onto the list of potential puppy adopters.

We visited a couple of times before we finally brought our puppy home. Each visit just confirmed the passion and dedication that Diane and Jonathan have for their dogs and puppies.

Diane kept us informed with emails and photos of Yendah’s progress, the birth of her pups and the early stages. At five weeks old we were able to handle the pups and observe them with mum. They were all perfect and beautiful, what a task to choose just one! Diane discussed their individual personalities, their care and health and our responsibilities. Thankfully Jonathan’s helpful assessment of us and puppy made the ideal match. Before we left that afternoon we were given tips and advice about preparing to bring our pup home, at last.

By the time we collected L. Kupa at eight weeks we had learned a good deal about the Leiborschy canine and human family, the lifelong support and advice from them also what was expected of us. Our new puppy was adorable, we knew immediately there would be no regrets even when, inevitably, we were called to walk the moonlit garden in the early hours! He was micro-chipped and a feeding/toilet training schedule had already been established. Over several cups of tea the contract and K.C. documentation was explained and we departed with a Leiborschy puppy pack. Kupa snuggled up to his ‘comfort square’ – a piece cut from fleece used in the litter bed – and slept almost all the way home in his box.

Diane and Jonathan carefully select the new owners of their puppies and set them up to succeed with every kind of help and support possible. We have kept in regular email contact for their excellent advice and made the occasional worried phone call for reassurance. The Leiborschy website forum for owners is a great source of information and the place to be if you just want to say how fabulous your own Leib puppy is without feeling shy about it!

Over the years we’ve always had dogs but earlier this year a “wire” was to be a new departure for us. A significant joy of the internet is that one can research almost anything and we, as most prospective dog owners really should, took advantage of the ability to narrow down the search for a breed which, on paper or screen, matches the lifestyle on offer to the dog as much to the humans. Our own experience was that only after a great deal of investigation were we ready to take the next step of looking for a breeder with the integrity and experience to take that next step with us as part of a relationship rather than merely undertake a simple transaction. The Leiborschy web-site is well designed and informative and helped in the initial research as did that of the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association – if we’d been looking for a no questions asked puppy farmed dog it was clear from the off that Leiborschy wasn’t the way to go. Obtaining a dog from Diane and Jonathan isn’t really a transaction at all; it’s more a negotiation whereby you get a wire if it’s right for you and right for the dog – money changes hands but our experience was that cash was very much secondary. Once you meet Diane and Jonathan and the adult dogs in their home you can expect a warm welcome and a bit of a friendly grilling to make sure you’re right for the dog and visa versa before you go on the waiting list. Within the banner of “HWV” there are some physical variables such as density of coat etc and, whilst there are no guarantees, the process helps to make sure there are no surprises when you take your puppy home for the first time. Another thing that helped is that before we took our puppy home we visited Diane and Jonathan a couple more times to see how the puppy was maturing in the weeks before he was ready to leave. Even for people seasoned and used to dogs taking a new puppy home can be a little worrying as well as exciting given that you and the puppy are starting out on a long relationship and the responsibility it entails is no small matter. Help is on hand in advance to prepare for the new relationship and guidance forthcoming on purchasing crates, food bedding etc and as Leiborschy’s lights fade in the rear view mirror a very comprehensive, professional and detailed “idiots guide” to the first few nights and weeks is provided together with the knowledge that help is just a phone call / email / forum entry away. The first few days with a puppy are of course happy but not without stresses. At 3am, when the dog will not go back to sleep and you’re stood in the garden in the icy rain with a torch and little idea what’s wrong, the knowledge that a next morning chat with Diane or Jonathan and some wire “lore” will get you back on track is priceless. The guidance just keeps on coming from food and weight-gain to training days and shared experiences across the litters; not only does one get guidance from Leiborschy but also a direct line is available from every owner of every past Leiborschy dog via the web-site and forum – it’s really difficult to see how it could be more comprehensive.

Our experience of looking at this breed has been a very positive one. From hearing about them first through "Friends for Life". We had looked extensively at the breed over the internet but found your site the most informative, and easy to use. It is kept up to date and is concise.
From our initial phone conversation it was obvious the care that was taken to choose owners for your pups. We feel very lucky to have been able to have Archie. He is turning out to be what we were told he would be, a delightful and intelligent companion.

10 weeks on.........where do we start ? Yepa has now been with us an unbelievable 4 years on the 28th!! what a whirlwind experience we've all had and too think I/ we have had the boy" Pipster" Odon now 10 weeks. He has settled in so quickly and seems like he has never not been here! we all love him soooo much a credit to both you and Jonathan as breeders and friends.
You forget all too soon those early days of puppy hood and get a little rusty so as before it is so nice to have those reminders and emails to fall back on from you both and to know you are there!! and it is such a joy and comfort to see how others are doing on the puppy pages!


Although a little behind the others the Pip has grown into a beautiful boy and a temperament to match although Yepa doesnt always agree when he's nibbling her ears!!!

We could not have wished for a more perfect addition to the family and as always you were spot on with the help and advise in making our selection!

We look forward to meeting up with the others in the New Year!

Love to all at Christmas and Love and Best wishes for 2010

Thank you for your time and hospitality last night it was a real pleasure to meet you all. The dogs are all stunning but Mallard what can I say he has totally melted our heart with his laid back charm and totally banished any slight trepidation we may have had about taking on a male puppy. The puppies are even more gorgeous in the fur than on screen but it was a bit overwhelming having so many at once wanting to make friends .
It was fantastic to meet someone so motivated by love for the breed and not "in it for the money" as sadly so many are. We are counting the days till we can welcome our new arrival and hear the patter of tiny paws and grateful to you for giving us the opportunity to be a proud owner of a Leiborschy Puppy
Regards
Jacqui and Mark

We had been interested in the HWV for about a year and finally decided in late summer to actively inquire about the breed. Diane spoke honestly and helpfully about all aspects of the breed and invited us to a ring craft day where we were able to have a hands on experience with the dogs and speak to lots of different owners. We were very taken with the breed and were accepted as a future owner of a Leiborschy puppy. Just a month ago we took home Leiborschy Hebe (litter name Lucy) and just Hebe to us who was born from Patties litter in November. Throughout Hebes time in the litter Diane and Jonathan gave us the most amazing experience with 24/7 web cam, photographs and constant updates, so we really were a part of the whole experience. Now that we've got her at home the puppy pack we were given is entirely comprehensive, no stone is left unturned. The backup support is phenomenal, we are never on our own and don't feel embarrassed to ask even the smallest of things. We are happy and ever growing confident owners because of this. We would just like to say a huge thank you to Diane and Johnathan for our wonderful puppy who is now a cherished member of our family and a great friend to Rufus and we will enjoy being part of the Leiborschy family too.

We still come back regularly and direct friends here when they say 'you got a what?' Our boy is now 12 months old and is delightful. thanks again

Diane and Jonathan, Arek has turned two, and it's times like this that you come to reflect on what you have and how you got there. I waited a long time to bring a dog into my life; almost thirty years if I'm honest. What I have "ended up with" is born out of asking, listening, reading and a little bit of patience - I have an amazing dog, an amazing breeder, and a best friend: just what I wanted. Thanks for your continued support , assistance and friendship. Cheers loads, KevB.

Thank you Diane and Jonathan, we are looking forward to Yannik maturing and are confident he'll be as fabulous as Wilfek and Lajka are

From the moment we as a family decided to get a HWV, Daine and Jonathons support and advice to us was outstanding, with Niamh being severly visually impaired Diane and Jonathon looked at what temperament of dog would suit her needs. Diane encouraged us to visit her regularly, to see how Niamh interacted with all her dogs. Niamh decided that she would like Lorne (Randall - luckily he wasnt already picked!)and Diane said that he would be the ideal puppy for her. Randall has settled in very well at our home and Niamh is delighted with him. We are very proud to be part of the Leiborschy family and we thank Diane and Jonathon for their help, advice and continued support.

Diane & Jonathan, We would just like to say a big thank you for all your help in the preparaion of the new arrival. Day 2 of Hugo being in his new home and he really is a happy bouncey puppy, healthy and full of life. We could not have asked for anything more. He is the perfect addition to our family and we can not wait to see all the puppies together again in October. We will practise the stacking daily, although it is definitely us that needs the practice more than Hugo. Thank you for welcoming us to the Leiborschy family, the wait was certainly worth it.

    Hi Diane and Jonathon
    Just a quick email with some of my reflections on the Leiborschy puppy adoption experience.
    I was put in touch with you when I had a chance encounter with the owner of one of your puppies. He assured me that if I wanted to know more about the breed and ultimately own a wire I could do no better than contact you. He couldn't recommend you highly enough. He was right. What a lucky day that was!
    I have been delighted with all the help you have given me leading up to Yeva coming to live with us. We've greatly enjoyed our visits with you and the dogs both before and after the birth of the puppies. Nothing is too much trouble for you and Jonathon when it comes to the care of your dogs and puppies. It is lovely to see how much you care both for the dogs you are responsible for (adults and puppies) and the welfare of the breed in general. Not only do you work tirelessly for the future health and happiness of your pups - you do your very best to support and advise the new owners. If only all breeders were like you.
    Thank you both so much
    love and best wishes
    Jules and Yeva xx

    Think I'm the happiest and luckiest person as our household has been doubly blessed by two beautiful Leiborschy puppies. Our first pup, Kaleb, joined our household in July 2006, and our latest bundle of joy, Yusef, moved in - and took over - last week!!! After having several dogs over the years from mongrels to a very challenging bloodhound, and after a lot of research, I felt the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla was the breed for us. I was so fortunate to then find Diane and Jonathan who spent so much time with us and helped us to reach the firm conclusion that this was indeed the breed for us, but most importantly, that we would be a suitable family for such a special breed. However, this vetting by Jonathan and Diane (somewhat harder to pass than a job interview!!!) would have counted for nothing, I am sure, if their wonderful dogs hadn't also given us their seal of approval! Since Kaleb moved in Diane and Jonathan have always been there with a word of advice and encouragement when needed - as well as much laughter and humour through our regular e-mail contacts. They were absolutely right when they said that once you have a HWV you become besotted, and I was soon back banging at their door to ask to be considered for another gorgeous babe. And what a babe, from the most precious litter of Yendah and Mallard. Yusef is as well adjusted and socialised as Kaleb was when he moved in, and healthier and happier puppies you couldn't wish to find - absolutely perfect examples of their breed with striking personalities and brimming with confidence. Diane and Jonathan are incredible breeders - so committed to the breed, but also to the health, happiness and welfare of their dogs and little ones. For them it is a vocation, and one that they carry out with such love and devotion - they deserve every success in everything do, and the gratitude and thanks that anyone fortunate enough to be entrusted with one of the Leiborschy Lovelies owes them.
    With much love, gratitude and happiness,
    Susanne, Les, Kaleb and Yusef xxx

    Just thought I'd say how honoured we are to be chosen by you and Jonathan to be able to own a Yendah puppy. The whole litter was absolutely
    gorgeous, with lovely ,gentle temperaments and we wouldnt have been able to choose without your help and guidance. Our puppy, Yaara, has been with us just a week today, but we couldn't love her more. Both Andrew and I would like to say that after 2 not so good experiences choosing our other 2 dogs, that is was great to find such friendly breeders who are so committed to their chosen breed and to taking time to get to know the potential new
    owners of their puppies, making sure the owner and puppy are well suited. More importantly, it was nice to find breeders also committed to the welfare
    of their dogs and to their puppies throughout their whole life, not just while they are living in their home. We are so glad our friend Emily (who owns Leiborschy Ido of Vorosarkany), put us in touch with them and I would just like to say to anyone thinking of owning a dog from this wonderful breed that you could not do any better than to get in contact with Diane and Jonathan,you will not be disappointed.

    Finally To Diane and Jonathan....Thank you so much for choosing us and for all the help, advice and friendship you have given us and will give us in
    the future. We will not let you down.
    love and best wishes

    There is a saying, "Be careful what you wish for - it might come true"! Diane and Jonathan have given me just what I wished for (more, in fact, because my puppy is a dream come true), now the rest is up to me! They have come up trumps with a HWV puppy with a larger than life character, all the best attributes of this lovely breed and a super-charged engine for working. The litter's fabulous Mum "Nona" raised this wonderful, even litter (her third) of 12, "single handed" and looked fantastic afterwards. Diane is a totally dedicated perfectionist, who puts all her interest, love and energy into doing the best that it is possible to do for each and every one of their dogs, their puppies, existing and prospective Leiborschy owners and the breed as a whole, in her capacity as Chairperson of the Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Association. There is no limit to the amount of care, time and patience she gives everyone who comes to her for advice or, for those fortunate enough, as prospective owners. My trust in her and Jonathan was not misplaced and I thank them for all of this.

    Well Iorys (aka Babar) has been with us for only 3 days and already he's joined the family (although the cats are reserving judgement). Diane and Jonathan - what can we say? Firstly, a MASSIVE thank you for all your time, advice, visits and support in helping us decide what was right for us (breed, dog v bitch etc). Secondly, congratulations on the breeding and rearing of 12 wonderful puppies (not to mention the exisiting Leiborschy clan!) We are so pleased with Iorys - he is so friendly, healthly and excited....! Can't wait to get on with the training and meet up with others at various events!

    We are lucky enough to have our absolute favourite pup of christmas Leiborschy Eppie (Mary Ellen) home with us in Belfast. The fact that Eppie's epic journey across the Irish sea (a five hour car journey and a very choppy ferry ride) did not phase Miss Eppie one bit says much about the kind of attention and care a Leiborschy puppy receives. She is the most friendly, confident well-adjusted little girl! Diane and Jonathan ensured we had everything we needed for the big trip and indeed have been incredibly supportive through the whole "adoption" procedure. What a great start in life Leiborschy provides! We know that they are on the other end of the phone (or computer) should we need any advice in the future. We cannot thank you (or Nona, an incredible mother) enough...

    Congratulations, the pictures of all 12 and their proud mum is brilliant. We're sure that the slepless nights over the next few weeks will be worth it. This has got to be an early Christmas present and makes up for last years disappointment. Nona has produced two litters in one. Good Luck. Sharon, Bill , Ochre and Skarlat (the grandchildren)

    Huge thanks, Diane, for a great day today, at the HWV Association Mock Field Trial Day. It took place in the most stunning weather for November, with friendly jolly company, on excellent ground with a good amount of assorted game, dogs all behaving themselves and doing well, helpful, patient guns and kind, constructive instruction. Everyone took something home - happy memories of a super day, fresh knowledge, new skills acquired, boosted confidence, game for the pot and even a certificate! If members are fortunate enough to be offered this sort of opportunity again, it should not be missed - there is no pressure, the instruction is tailored to each person's ability and even the chance to just walk round, and watch the dogs working is worth taking. Thanks to everyone involved, but particularly to you Diane. (p.s. I found the sloe gin bottle!).

    My family and I visited Diane and Jonathan yesterday to meet them, their HWVs and of course the new puppies. What a caring, friendly, relaxed atmosphere the puppies are growing up in. We fell totally in love with all of the HWVs. They are a true reflection of the excellent care and dedication they receive from Diane and Jonathan. The attention given to this website alone is an indication of their committment to their dogs. Better breeders would be extremely hard to find.

    I came in contact with Diane when we got our first bracco puppy, Ensemble Benelli, called Ben. His father is the very beuatiful Nico. It´s been hard to get info about the bracco breed in Sweden, but having contact with Diane has helped me alot. She´s got a uniqe passion for her dogs and it´s a joy to follow her dogs progress on this site. And winning at Crufts 2006 just shows that Leiborschy´s are great breeders. Of course being a bracco-owner Nico is my favorit. He is a fantastic dog and I can only hope that his son will get some of his greatness. Who wouldn´t want to own a dog like Nico. He seems to have a lovely caracter with big personallity. That´s something his son has inherited. Ben is a great dog with a big heart, having a beuatiful head and expression. I thank Diane a lot for helping me with all my questions and for all her advise. We are entering Finland worldwinner dog show in june and Diane has been helping a lot with preperations for Bens debute. Hopfully he will follow in his fathers footsteps.... For me Nico is a role-model fore the Braccobreed and looking at all their great looking "wires", who are all of very high quality. It´s not often you se a breeder that has so many correct and sound dogs. I´m of course planing a journey to England and I´m looking forward to meet all the Leiborschy´s in real life. Thanks for all your help!!!! Keep up the great work!!! Your kennelsite is great!!! Nicole/Ben Sweden

    We are now the proud parents of Leiborschy Yaani, Honey, born 28th Dec 2005 and we waited a long time for her. The whole process has been flawless, we felt part of the daily changes with the litter and watched them all develop. It was pretty daunting taking Honey home but Diane was always happy to answer my questions and give some really sound advice. The Leiborschy experience has been better than I expected and I know that Diane and Jonathan will always be at the end of the phone should we need anything. They are passionate about their dogs and it is very refreshing.

    Hi Diane & Jonathan are good friends of mine and i must say it is a pleasure to see a breeder who gives so much care with their attitude when rearing a litter of pups, if only everybody who bred dogs did the same. Im sure every one who has one of her pups will agree its wonderful treat to visit their home to see how much love and care goes into everything they do with their dogs, long may it continue.

    I am the proud owner of Tezza the Bracco Italiano Diane and Jonathan own her Dad Nico! Diane helped me research the breed and gave me all the helpful and honest advice about the breed. I met both Emma (the breeder) and Diane when choosing the puppy and from the day we brought Tez home, she has been always on the end of the phone or on e-mail with help and advice about this wonderful breed. I went to visit Nico's AI litter with Diane in Sweden and learnt alot about the breed from the European perspective. Diane and Jonathan are really knowledgeable about all aspects of breeding, they are passionate about their wires and I would recommend them as reliable breeders and friends. Val

    I recently met Diane through my friend Emily, who owns Leiborschy Ido of Vorosarkany and was lucky enough to be invited to meet their latest litter of puppies. I was impressed with Diane's knowledge and passion for wires,and could see that she not only cares for her own dogs but also for their puppies for the whole of their lives, no matter where they live. I've learnt a lot more about the breed from Diane herself and also from the fantastic website which shows each puppy's development through to adulthood. From my own personal experience, you could not wish to find a more kind,honest and trustworthy breeder than Leiborschy and anyone lucky enough to be given the chance to own one of their puppies should consider themselves deeply honoured.

    There are Wirehaired Vizslas and then there are Leiborschy WHV The difference being that having a Leiborschy WHV is like buying a car with a full service history you not only know exactly what you are getting but you also get the most incredible support team in the form of Diane and Jonathan Ochre is a working dog but is also a brilliant pet companion and has had some success showing We are waiting for another puppy we know that it may be a long wait but we know that it will be worth it Leiborschy know how special the breed is and they want to keep it that way If you are lucky enough to have one of their puppies it becomes your responsibility to help keep it so special You will never be disappointed with your Leiborschy puppy

    This is a FANTASTIC site The facility to follow the progress of each puppy that Leiborschy has bred provides an amazing learning tool for anyone wishing to find out more about wires A brilliant way to find out loads of information on wires and if the site cannot help you Diane always will Some lovely pictures of some of the best examples of the breed Well done Diane and Jonathan
