    Overview

    The Kuvasz is the best known of the Hungarian dogs. His name, however, is not Hungarian, but Turkish, and it means “Guardian of Nobles.” The Kuvasz has existed in his present form for over a thousand years. The Kuvasz is an outstanding sheepdog and farm dog, intelligent, methodical, fearless.

    Character

    He is a one-man dog who selects his friends and never forgets his enemies. He always knows who wishes to hurt his owner or himself and who is a friend. Unsurpassed as a watchdog and a farm dog, he must be handled as a puppy and carefully as an adult. He is very sensitive to loud voices.

    The Kuvasz has a highly developed parental instinct causing it to “adopt” lambs, kittens and children, but his protective instincts are not always discerning. A scuffle between children could be perceived as a threatening situation. Because their work ethic is still intact, if left to themselves, they will often take it to another level, assuming that you need to be protected from your dinner guests or a postman. The more the dog is included in family life, the more likely it is to protect it, yet accept guests.

    You would be wise to educate yourself about the hereditary dog diseases and what measures and precautions your Kuvasz reputable breeder has taken to ensure that your new puppy will grow into a healthy and happy dog.
