- Hungarian Kuvasz
The Kuvasz (plural: Kuvaszok) is a large to giant sized purebred dog that originated in Hungary around 900 A.D. The breed makes an excellent guard and watch dog and are incredibly loyal to anyone they consider a family member. Kuvasz are good family dogs, but are independant which can make training difficult.
Since the breed was bred to protect families and livestock from wolves, coyotes, and other predators you can expect Kuvasz to be wary of any potential threat to their family. Because of this, it is important to train and socialize Kuvasz at an early age to help reduce tension with strangers and other animals.
