Intelligence, boldness and independence are the traits that make the Kuvasz an excellent working dog and livestock guardian. Weighing in at about 100 pounds, he's also more energetic and agile than most dogs his size and needs plenty of exercise. Kuvaszok (yes, that the plural) are devoted to their family and instinctively protective. They need early socialization and patient training to keep their protective instincts in check. Your Kuvasz puppy needs to know that you're the leader and will respond best to sensitive, positive training. If you're up to the challenge, you'll be rewarded with a sweet, gentle and loyal canine companion.
