Overview
The Kuvasz is incredibly intelligent, is very devoted and loyal, and makes an excellent working dog. This breed does have a strong protective instinct over his family and territory, which makes him a good watchdog.
Character
The Kuvasz is somewhat suspicious of strangers and requires much socialization to avoid shyness or aggressiveness. A very obedient breed, this dog is very willing to protect his family no matter what the circumstances.
Temperament
This breed has been used in herding so he does have a protective instinct, which makes him not quite right for the average family. However, he can do well with children providing they are always supervised. The Kuvasz is also very gentle and affectionate towards his family.
Care
The Kuvasz should be brushed on a regular basis all the way down to the undercoat. This will remove excess hair during shedding, and will keep the hair free from mats. This breed does best in colder climates mentally, and physically. In warmer climates, the Kuvasz tends to shed quite a bit all year round, while in cooler weather, he sheds seasonally.
Coat
The Kuvasz has a very sturdy double coat. The outercoat should always remain moderately coarse, and should never be smooth. The undercoat is fine, soft, and somewhat silky. This breed may have either a straight or wavy coat.
Training
This breed is naturally very intelligent and obedient, however he should require a firm handler yet gentle training as this breed can be sensitive to the tone of your voice. The Kuvasz does remarkably well in herding and obedience.
Activity
The Kuvasz should have regular exercise, preferably daily. This breed bores easily and can become destructive without the proper entertainment, so he should always have room to run. A medium fenced yard will suffice.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Kuvasz puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

aggression with our Kuvasz Great Pyrenees mix dog We acquired my parents dog which is kuvasz and Great Pyrenees (jewel). She is very loving and constantly wants attention. We love here dearly. We already had 3 other dogs, a Pomeranian (male), black lab (female) and a 13 year old Shepard Mastiff mix (male). None of our current dogs are aggressive what so ever. Jewel has now attacked our Shepard Mastiff a few times, and it has always been right after feeding. The attack has always been unprovoked from the shepherd mastiff (he was just walking by). Jewel has never shown aggression to the other 2 dogs. We are unsure what to do. Jewel is not fixed but thinking that might help. Is this a common problem with this breed?

Jewel should be fixed. But what could also be the problem is food aggression or possession aggression. Meaning she feels possessive of her things, such as a food bowl, because she is used to being alone and now she's not. Since your Shepherd/Mastiff is the largest of the three, she could feel him as a threat.

How many weeks until you can bath a Kuvasz puppy

1 Comment

Anonymous

Puppies can be bathed anytime after their eyes are open, which happens at about 2 weeks old. But it is best to allow the mother to clean her pups until they are at least 6-7 weeks old before you do their first bath. Spot clean if they have poop or pee on them with a warm/wet cloth.

We were thinking of getting a Kuvasz but were not sure whether the Kuvasz (Male or Female) would be an issue with the Berner. Thanks a ton!

In general, there should not be an issue, I know a gal who owns Kuvasz and Berners. The issue is individual dogs, and particularly at what ages you get them/introduce them. Again in general, getting a female Kuvasz (is your Berner neutered??) is the safest bet for making fast friends, but males can get along just fine. In Kuvasz, if any combination is more likely to have issue it's two females not getting along. Good luck!

Are Kuvasz good with children?

Are the children good with dogs? If the children are dog savvy and you know what makes a kuvasz tic, then kuvasz can be quite nurturing with children and will lay down their lives for their families.

I am about to get a Kuvasz puppy, but the boy that my children liked from the litter has slight pink on the nose and pads are pink too. I believe both should be black. The breeder, a very reputable one in southern Ontario, says that the nose and the pads will turn black soon. Is this so? I do not mind the pads, but a little streak of pink on the nose in Kuvasz, if it does not go away, will certainly look odd. Any advice?

If it's a winter/late spring Kuvasz litter the pigment can be slow coming in. I had one pup in Alaska that had all pink pads at 8 weeks, by the time he was in the show ring at 6 months he had the darkest pigment.

My family bought a dog 10 years ago, she looks like a Kuvsz but is super small. She also looks like a mini golden retriever, but her furr and characteristics fit more with the Kuvasz.

An exceptionally small female Kuvasz can be the size of a Golden Retriever, but will never be the size of a Cocker spaniel :-)

The kuvasz in the American seem to be getting smaller and smaller but females are 24" and above at the shoulders (26" and above is preferred) and males should be 28" and above at the shoulders. Anything smaller is not a kuvasz.

Is this dog (Kuvasz) good with cats?

Depends on bonding. I will not take a chance if Kuvasz are not socialized with people and other animals. Although Kuvasz is a livestock guarding breed, in order to be effective and safe, Kuvasz puppies have to be introduced to sheeps and goats early in their lives so that they can bond with the livestock. You just can't expect a fully grown Kuvasz, not bonded with the herd in his / her life, to be thrown in and work wonders.

Is the kuvasz coat wavy or curly?

i've seen both, some are curly like the original kuvasz, but usually america and canada will have them wavy/fluffly with the big mane. if you look up the history of kuvasz and look at todays american kuvasz you'll see the difference.

The Americans have allowed straight coats for some odd reason. Straight coats are a disqualification in Europe. Most ethical kuvasz breeders strive for wavy coats (which appear curled, versus the curly/nappy coat of the poodle)
