Stoney Lake Vizslas


I started Stoney Lake Vizslas in 2016. I think I like dogs more than people but at least people give me room on the couch. (ha!)

Chillin Charlie

2023: #1 VIZSLA IN CANADA (Breed Points)


Chillin’ Charlie (GChB Stoneylake Chillin Charlie) finished the year as the #1 Vizsla. He was awarded with two Sporting Group 3, and two Group 4 and twenty-four Best of Breeds. Meanwhile… in the U.S., in Wisconsin, Charlie won a 1st Award of Merit, Select Dog and Best of Opposite – with entries of 50+ Vizslas, and in Syracuse won two Best of Opposites. He then finished the year at the AKC Championship in Orlando and won another BOB over outstanding competion!

I’m proud of what Stoney Lake Vizslas has become in just a few years. Our dogs have done well in the show ring, the bird field and most importantly found wonderful forever homes. I try to breed our dogs for a soft gentle temperament and still be amazing.

Bonneterre Ripblaz Copper

‘Our’ first vizsla was Copper. My son, Daniel fell in love with vizslas and decided he wanted to buy one from a nearby breeder and friend, Ray Rowan of Bonneterre Vizslas. So he worked all summer one year to earn the money to purchase ‘Copper.’ With Ray’s help, Daniel and Copper discovered the exhilarating world of bird hunting with a vizsla.

And then, of course, my daughter wanted a vizsla too! ‘Stella’ was destined for confimation.

Then Ava was my first dog. It became a family affair and Stoney Lake Vizslas was born.

Chillin Charlie CGN

Our Charlie has excelled as Show Dog! Multiple Group Placements. And the first Vizsla to earn his Grand Champion Bronze. Charlie is also an emotional support dog for geriatrics.

St. Patricks Day in Stoney Lake

Each year we help fund the local St. Patricks Day and also show up with the whole crew including the dogs.

Dog Shows have become a family affair.

We had a great weekend at Erie Shores Kennel Club: Jessica with Millie, Nick with Charlie and I was showing Stoney.




Stoney Lake has become a great place to raise vizslas and children…
