Breeding for Temperament & Type
Breeding is our passion, not our profession.
Metropolis Hungarian Vizslas is a small kennel. Originally established on Sydney’s upper North Shore, after 3 years of regular travel down the south coast, we relocated near Jervis Bay in 2015, to acreage with more extensive facilities.
First registered for breeding in July 2010, the principal of Metropolis, Robyn Hanney, had decades of experience at Australia’s premier commercial law firm, before reskilling and pursuing other interests. She has owned and been involved with Hungarian Vizslas since 1999.
Robyn was mentored for 3 years by one of Australia’s most successful and well known breeders, Brian Neaves, who with his wife bred Kimlise Hungarian Vizslas at the property we now occupy. Robyn brings a professional approach to all her dealings.

Our approach to breeding is to linebreed for up to 3 generations, and then breed to a healthy outcross, to ensure genetic health and variation. The significance of a particular dedicated linebred bloodline is predictability of behaviour and development, and consistency of temperament and structure.
