Kuvaszok Pet Insurance News

Kuvasz, a relatively rare breed, is an ideal dog breed for ranchers and farmers looking for a large dog to guard their herd, flock, and family.

At Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in September 2016, secretary-treasurer with the Kuvasz Club of Canada, Amber Kunz, said the breed don’t attack and they are not mean. “They just stand their ground, try to push the predator away and then come back to the flock”, she said.

Kunz, a breeder for 25 years and owner of Kuvaszok for 30 years, said you don’t have to train a Kuvasz to do his job, they have an instinctive trait. The dog will protect your livestock and if you don’t have livestock, he will protect you and your family. The dog thinks for himself and can solve problems on his own. He learns by watching and observing, she added.

If a potential threat approaches, just like a light switching on, the guardianship quality of the dog lights up even though he’s not aggressive.

Also, Kuvs are low odor breed. Their coats are non-allergenic and self-cleaning. If the dog gets in mud, the mud will fall off when it dries off. The Goderich, Ontario, based breeder, Kunz said she keeps the dog primarily as a hobby but she also sells the pups. Each is worth about $1,000.
