The Kuvasz

The Kuvasz is a long established, ancient Hungarian Shepherd Dog. It's ancestors came into the Carpathian basin at the time of occupation by the Magyars. These dogs were needed to watch and guard their flocks against wolves, bears and thieves. Compared to other big white flock guards the kuvasz is one of the first breeds to find his way inte to the cities and adapting to our modern way of living. The Kuvasz is today mainly a family member but also used as a watch and guard dog. The kuvasz defends the people entrusted to his care, even with his life.

The kuvasz is strong and large and carry a dense, wavy, white coat. The bone structure is strong but not coarse. The Kuvasz' head is typically wedge-shaped, in harmony with his body, pleasing, noble, and it shows a considerable strength. The head is characteristically lean and dry. In males the head is slightly more massive than in bitches.  But it is also important the head do no become to long and thin, it should be V-shaped with almond shaped eyes that give the special kuvasz-look. The pigment is important and should be black. The coat is white or ivory and should be wavy and sligtly stiff. When trotting, the movement is light footed, springy, ground covering, lively, constant and tireless.

If you buy a kuvasz you will get a friend that will do everything for you but the kuvasz will not accept unfair treatment. They have preserved guard instinct and social training is thus very important if they should adapt to the demands of modern society. It is self-confident and may become aggressive if ill-treated. He is faithful, dependable and loves his master and his surroundings. Kuvasz love to be around the family but if you want the kuvasz to go together with other dogs and people, early training is very important.
