Traditionally a Livestock Guardian Breed, the Kuvaz is increasingly common as a household companion and in the show ring.
This is a large, head strong breed, used to working independently and being protective of their environment.
They are not an ideal breed for small yards and require exercise and prefer a job to do.
They will give themselves the job of protecting their territory.
The Kuvaz is very devoted to their family and to protecting what is “theirs” — including livestock, people, and property in their territory.
This means that while a very protective breed, the Kuvaz is also good with other animals.
They are also suspicious of strangers and will not immediately warm up to visitors in their home.
A handsome breed, intelligent and devoted to their people, it is easy to see why people are attracted to this breed. In the right circumstances they can be a great companion, as long as their needs are being met.
