Miles and miles of trials that are dog friendly.
Easy access and most trails are easy walks. Great mountain biking trails to run the dogs.
REDBIRDDOG - a Hungarian Pointer blog following the adventures of two Hungarian Pointers or Red bird dogs (Vizslas) and their human companions through the West in search of birds and some very cool spots! Take a second to indicate a choice (funny, interesting, cool) at the bottom of the post. COMMENTS ALWAYS APPRECIATED AND ENJOYED. Thanks for visiting.
Here John and Juliet from Dorset, England, spent the weekend experiencing a western-style pointing-breed field trial. John and Juliet are the proud owners of Radar, the wonderful 2-1/2 year-old Vizsla who has his own blog:
http://radarreddog.blogspot.com John and Juliet arrived Saturday early afternoon and joined us in the motor home for a beer before wandering through the camp of horses, dogs, trailers, RVs, and trucks.
They joined our friends (fellow Vizsa owners) Ken & Janet, along with their daughter, Sarah, with Joanie and me for dinner at the historic National Hotel in Jamestown for a very nice meal and bottle of wine.
We really enjoyed their company and hope that if other Vizsla owners from England make it out to the SF Bay Area, they drop me a line at the following:

Here our neighbors from hometown Walnut Creek, Henry and Catherine Pokorny, enjoy a break between braces with one of their wonderful dogs, Oliver.
This is a brace ready to go out matching young Derby dogs, a GSP and a Vizsla.
Can I compete against much more knowledgable handlers? Can Bailey compete against stronger and tougher dogs?
I guess I have to believe in the Hollywood heroine pictured below to carry on.
