The Kuvasz is a majestic, well-proportioned white sheepdog with a very handsome head. The Kuvasz (plural is Kuvaszok) is a working dog of larger size, sturdy, well balanced, neither lanky nor cobby. It is white in color with no markings. It is extremely loyal, obedient, active and strong but is wary of strangers. It makes an excellent watch dog and guard dog.
Longhaired, slightly wavy or flat double coat, soft undercoat. The coat should be brushed weekly. Avoid bathing this dog, as the coat naturally sheds dirt and bathing will remove the oils that give the coat this property. The more you bathe this dog the more it will need to be bathed. Instead of bathing, the dog should be brushed frequently.
It is prone to hip dysplasia. Some minor issues are osteochondritis dissecans (a disease causing lameness from inflammation of the shoulder joints), hypertrophic osteodystrophy, skin problems and allergic reactions. This breed may drool and slobber. To minimize the risk of your dog developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a Kuvasz dog from a reputable breeder.
