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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
