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.

Annual cost of owning a Kuvasz puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Kuvaszs true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Will a Kuvasz go after cats and chickens?

1 Comment


The Kuvasz is an intelligent livestock guardian breed of dog. If raised from a pup and taught what he/she is to be looking after, then no. A family friend has three as guardians on their farm and none of them chase their indoor/outdoor cats, chickens, goats, or horses that they have. Each dog was brought into the family as a pup and taught from an early age how to behave around each of the farm animals.

Anonymous asked:
I'm thinking about getting a Kuvazs dog, but the breeder says he wants 4,000 dollars, he said that the dog was extra healthy, but I saw a picture of the dog and he doesn't look like the other pictures I see of them. Is this a scam?

1 Comment


In one word, Yes. The person you are talking about is scamming you. There is no such thing as an 'extra healthy' dog. It is best to find a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder if you plan on getting a Kuvasz, or any purebred dog for that matter.

Anonymous asked:
If you don't use shampoo, is it okay to wash a Kuvaszs with only water?



A dog-shampoo is formulated to not only clean a dog but to help the natural oils on the dogs skin move to the hair follicle. If you don't want to use shampoo, water will be just fine.


Kuvasz don't need baths. I had one for 8 years and he was wet only twice and that was to wash off skunk.


The fur repels dirt. We have red dirt in SC. My dog can look filthy and after about an hour she is white with no dirt left in her fur.

Anonymous asked:
How many puppies are in a Kuvasz litter?

1 Comment


The average size of a litter of Kuvasz puppies is between 6 - 8 puppies. But it all depends on how many eggs the female drops. A Kuvasz could have 1 puppy or as many as 15 - 20. The world record was 24 puppies in 2009 by a Neapolitan Mastiff.

How is the Kuvasz breed in protecting goats and living with them?

The Kuvasz breed has been created and bred for 100's of years to protect livestock and to live with them. They are amazing guardians and grow very attached to the herd that they are living with. It is best to get your puppy in with your herd of goats as soon as possible and start training early.
