Kuvasz are best known as family, home and livestock guardians. They are gentle, obedient and innately protective to those they love and serve. They are also smart, strong and fiercely defensive against predators such as coyotes, wolves, bears, moose and bobcats.
With the right socialization, training and physical environment Kuvasz make wonderful Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGD) as well as loyal and loving family pets.
Kuvasz stand guard like a sentinel and although they are obedient and devoted to their family, they remain aloof and circumspect toward strangers. Due to their strength, temperament and reliable nature, Kuvasz have been used to assist disabled owners and to watch over and protect small children.
