IN SWEDISH HISTORY CARE  STANDARD RAS

 

The Kuvasz share the same long history with other big white dogs such as the Slovensky Cuvac, Maremmano-Abruzzese, Polski Owczarek Podhalanski and the Great Pyrenees. There are various theories about the orgin of the Kuvasz but we know that nomadic tribes that settled around the Carpathian basin used kuvasz as guard dogs. As they started to live a more agrarian life, the Kuvasz assisted the sheperds guarding the sheep as well as the farms. Compared to other white flock guards there is evidence showing the kuvasz as more closely tied to families and even prefering human company.

King Mátyás, who ruled Hungary from 1458-1490 always had a kuvasz beside him and Kuvasz puppies were given to noble visitors. Kuvasz became a popular breed and was used as guard dogs and as police dogs. But the two world wars seriously diminished the Kuvasz population. A hard work to collect Kuvasz dogs started and a standard was drawn up and was accepted by the FCI in 1963.

Some years later, in 1969, Dr Tibor Buzády imported the first Kuvasz to Sweden. It was an Hungarian male: Betyartelepi Bicsak Csigo. Dr Buzády did also import the bitches Gyapjus Rokolya, Pecelói Bojtár Csipke, Pecelói Cinka and the males Budagyöngye Bihar and Sokorópátkai Andul from Hungary. He had good contact with Antal Kovacs, the manager of Gyapjus kennel. He helped T Björnsson to import the bitch, Harosi Ani , sired to Petröczi Atti and the first Kuvasz litter in Sweden was born in 1970. But Dr Tibor Buzády is the first breeder of kuvasz in Sweden with more than one litter and he started the first club for Hungarian breeds in Sweden (SvkFUR).

A male from the first litter, Arro, was later used for breeding and is also the father of Kövi-Dinka, the foundation bitch of kennel Trevnaden. Through Kövi-Dinka, Arro is behind the first Swedish World Winner SV-95 NORDUCH DKUCH INTUCH SV-97-98 WW- 98 Trevnadens Egészséges and the second Swedish World Winner SUCH Red Dog´s Czabina. He is also behind NUCH SUCH HUCH Red Dog´s Czaruso, the first non hungarian Kuvasz to win the Hungarian Kuvasz special (2008) and the first Swedish Kuvasz to become Hungarian champion.

There are some more new imports that hasn't yet been used for breeding. In Sweden almost only dogs free from hip dysplasia have been used for breeding. Health issues have always been important and we are happy to say that kuvasz today do not have many health problems. They also do very well in the show ring. At the Swedish Kuvasz special 2008, 65 kuvasz participated and our judge András Kovács was impressed by the quality of the Swedish dogs. Andras Kovaszc is a son of Antal Kuvasz, he grew up at the Gyapjus kennel with kuvasz and has a excellent reputation as a judge. 

One of the reason behind our high quality of kuvasz in Sweden is due to the good co-operation between the breeders. The year 2008 kennel Csigora celibrated 10 year as a kuvasz breeder and so far we are very proud of our results. Our next litter is a combination of old swedish lines and new imports. Look for puppies in the menu!
