A Kuvasz is the ideal family friend, provided you properly understand his or her needs.
They are gentle, affectionate and loyal companions that will provide you with protection to the point of self-sacrifice. Give a Kuvasz the socialization, basic training and a well secured fence and you will be rewarded with a lifetime of love and devotion.
The breed’s devotion is extreme. They adore the children they have been raised (or socialized) with, love to be in a child’s presence and are very protective of them.
Kuvasz are natural guardians that have courage, loyalty and daring. Without any formal training, they will watch over your property and your home and give you considerable peace of mind. However this also implies a level of commitment and responsibility from their owners. You must aware of situations that could trigger a guarding response and avoid putting your dog into a situation which awakens his protective instinct or puts him in harm’s way.
