The only Dual Champion Vizsla in the state of Wisconsin, Max was bred, trained, and handled exclusively in the field by my mother, Wanda Berner. He was handled to his show Championship exclusively by Nancy Russell.

Max was in the Vizsla Club of America Top Ten Field in both Open and Amateur at the time of his retirement from competition.

After the completion of his Dual Championship, he was campaigned in the show ring for one more season, where he took multiple Best of Breeds over Nationally ranked show dogs.

Max is included in the Dual Champion Database 

Max joined my parents on December 30, 2005 to run the big field trial in the sky. Heartbroken since the August 2005 death of my mother, I think the loss of my father on December 26 was too much for him to overcome. Hunt 'em up, old man.
