Description: The Kuvasz (plural is Kuvaszok) is a working dog of larger size, sturdily built, well balanced, neither lanky nor cobby. Their weight is evenly dispersed on the body, and they largely resemble the Slovakian Kuvasz. They have medium to long fur that requires grooming. They are white in color with no markings. They have medium length drop ears, and a bushy tail. They impress the eye with their strength and activity. A one-family dog, they are extremely loyal, obedient, active and strong but wary of strangers. They are an excellent guard dog, which is what they have been bred for. The Kuvasz needs plenty of exercise, and training would certainly be beneficial. Kuvaszok are wary of strangers, but polite. They can, however, misinterpret rough play for threatening behavior and will act accordingly. A powerful breed, the Kuvasz is impressive in appearance, strength and personality.
