DUAL CHAMPION VORTEXES AND THEIR CLUBS
“UPLAND VIZSLA CONTINENTAL FAMILY WARFARE
WITH STRUCTURAL BREED REPRESENTATIVE INTEGRITY”
It takes a diverse “family club” to raise up a Dual Champion of multiple qualities. It takes a club where the political structure, education, competition and education are composed by a minimum of three separate high class breeding programs that proliferate enough to have impact for over ten years as a minimum.
If there are less than three lines in a club interest in field AND show, what you have is a club administrated, politically structured to the surviving breeding programs, to that power structure’s education and competition values and is not a club whose pedigree lineage is being tested from top to bottom on multiple levels, multiple functions and multiple interests. If there are lesser numbers of people actively working on Dual Champion heritage, then the active numbers of the lines left will have even less people involved, had the three distinct lines not been visibly active in a club. This doesn’t mean that club with one or two dual lines doesn’t have a high class Dual Champion, only that ability has not been tested (education, training, competition)within the club and not as likely to proliferate if had it been fully tested by two other lines from years of breeding programs and competition. Nor does the club with three lines have a guarantee of high class Vizsla Champions, only that there is quantity available to decide depth of class, a depth that has already been tested within that club.
When dual interests in one club converge and focus on at least three primary breeders who are active in show AND field activizts, a higher than average number of Dual Champions will occur in that club and as time passes those Dual Champions coming from that same club will become more competitive representatives nationally of the breed because they have been tested at all levels of DC competition and have been for years. And may indeed be likely to then march to “Upland Continental Warfare” for Vizslas and AKC Sporting breeds… to do well.
The three top clubs for Dual Champions, all formed in the sixties are Vizsla Club of Illinois, Vizsla Club of Conestoga, and Miami Valley Vizsla Club. The first two named are large clubs who had more than three major breeding “engineers” many times. The club to start the Dual Champion Roll Call was the Vizsla Club of New England, today’s club longest in continual existence regional club. The Prairie States Vizsla Club was the first regional club and became an Iowa Vizsla Club, and created the Vizsla Club of Nebraska. Between the Iowa and Nebraska Vizsla clubs there are nine Dual Champions.
The reason, the top, but very small Miami Valley Vizsla club was so successful is everyone, nearly everyone show, did the field, did obedience and represented Midwest political measures in local and national Leaders. Many gave one puppy from every litter to Pilot Dogs (dog leaders for the blind). They were innovative, pivotal and most of all they opened their home and hearts, both with wonderful facilities to everyone.
Not only does a true Dual minded club have at least 3 major breeding programs involved in field AND show, there must be at least 3 major places clubs can hold meetings, do activities without having to pay for grounds and be not be responsible to other entities for justifying/paying for their existence. These factors MVVC club had in spades. When the need came to change to new grounds, there were other MVVC members like Kayser, Keetons and Schaefers who also had wonderful facilities for the club to get together, stay active by bustling communications that was primarily done by Editors of the MVVC Newsletters.
In 1988 Gary Jagoda and Cindy Hibler finished their first Dual Champions. Both Gary and Cindy started as members of Miami Valley Vizsla Club until moving to Michigan and New Jersey. In 1991 Dr Nancy Boggs Heinold DVM finished her first Dual Champion DC AFC Paradox Remarqueable Jake, still a member of the Miami Valley Vizsla Club and recently moved to Dearborn, Mi.
While Chauncey Smith’s heart club is not MVVC, he has been a member for many years, attended as an entrant or judged many Field Trials. It was with pleasure and pride that Smitty has sponsored the two Amateur Challenge trophies as the man who makes Dual Champions from the training and handling as an Amateur the very first Dual Champion and Dual Champion bitch, along with owning, training and handling as many dual quality Vizslas as he could get his hands on for over fifty years.
One item of note is that MANY owners of Dual Champions had multiple club membership, particularly in the clubs mentioned and the top three clubs, Miami Valley Vizsla Club, Vizsla Club of Illinois and Conestoga Vizsla Club. It was nothing for any of the three clubs to need help and the other two clubs would answer the call even if they had to drive over one thousand miles. Not only was it necessary to have diverse families within a club to consistently produce Dual Champions, but it was necessary for the clubs to work together as a family.
Deciding which Dual Champions went where was not an easy task to assign home clubs.
In the end I used all DC’s accredited to the first club someone started in. If they moved they still got credit if their membership remained constant or nearly with the original club. Had I used the theory that Duals remained with the club someone started out with, MVVC would have 33 Dual Champions. That meant the Vizsla Club of New England kept all of Chauncey’s Dual Champions and MVVC kept all of Randy Boggs and Debby Fridlund Lynn’s but not two of three Nancy and Dave Heinold Dual Champions.
