What They Are Like to Live With

The Kuvasz is a devoted family dog with a strong sense of independence. Protective and faithful, this dog would much rather patrol the perimeter of the household than cuddle on the couch. The Kuvasz is known for being a gentle and watchful presence around children. While intelligent and easy to train, it is somewhat sensitive, responding to consistent but positive training.

Things You Should Know

The Kuvasz can live as long as 13 years. Common health issues include deafness, hip dysplasia and eye problems. Its thick coat requires daily brushing, especially during spring and fall shedding seasons.

Being a natural-born working dog, the Kuvasz needs to be busy. Farmers and ranchers (especially in colder climates) will appreciate the Kuvasz’ dedication and intelligence. Not the best apartment dog, they need at least a medium-sized yard and vigorous daily walks to stay mentally and physically sharp.

Kuvasz History

Named after the Turkish word for “guard,” the Kuvasz appeared in Hungary (by way of the Magyars) more than 800 years ago. Used as both a hunter and shepherd, the Kuvasz eventually became popular in Europe as a police dog. Today, the Kuvasz still tends sheep around the world, but it also serves as a beloved household pet.
