Kuvasz Grooming and Breed Care

Kuvasz Temperament

The Kuvasz is a dog that is very loyal and protective, and has plenty of courage, spirit, and determination. The Kuvasz will be very protective of adults, children, and pets in his own family, but can be very wary, distrustful, and overprotective when strangers - adults or children - are around. He can also be aggressive with strange animals in a bid to protect his family and his territory. Early socialization is important with the Kuvasz, and when it comes to training he is a quick learner and is intelligent. However, he can be dominant and can get bored easily, and is best suited to an experienced dog owners who can be assertive, confident, and provide plenty of variety when it comes to physical and mental stimulation.

 

The deep bark and protective nature of this breed makes the Kuvasz an effective watchdog. This is an energetic breed, and it is important to ensure that he gets daily walks and also has a secured and safe area in which to play and run. This is not a dog that is suited to enclosed environments and apartment living, nor is he suited to those that cannot establish themselves as the leader. However, with the right owner and the right environment, he can make a loyal, devoted, and loving family pet.

Kuvasz Appearance

The Kuvasz is giant in size, and this is something that needs to be taken into consideration if you have small children in the household. He has a sturdy and robust build, and an intelligent, attentive expression. The coloring of the Kuvasz is white, and his coat is long, can be flat or wavy, and has a softer undercoat. A handsome creature, the Kuvasz weighs in at around 70-90 pounds for females and 100-115 pounds for males. The height of the Kuvasz is around 26-28 inches for females and 28-80 pounds for males.

Kuvasz Grooming

Although the Kuvasz has a beautiful, long coat, the grooming requirements for this breed are not excessively demanding. Brushing his coat once a week will help to keep it in good condition, although you will need to step up the grooming when he is shedding more heavily. This breed sheds heavily on a seasonal basis, and is a constant shedder throughout the rest of the year too, so he is not suited to allergy sufferers.

Kuvasz Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Kuvasz is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health issues relating to this breed. Some of the health issues to look out for include thyroid problems, HD and elbow dysplasia, torsion, OCD, sensitivity to chemicals and drugs, and low metabolism. You should ensure that the parents of the Kuvasz puppy have OFA certificates.

Kuvasz History

The Kuvasz originates from Tibet, where the breed was used to guard rulers and act as bodyguards. He went on to become popular for guarding livestock for villagers.
