Overview

An ancient breed from the Middle East region, the Kuvasz is hailed as one of Hungary's fearless and courageous flock-guardian dogs. His large, muscular frame is enrobed in a solid white, full, luxuriant coat. This powerful sheepdog cannot be excelled as a guard; he's a self-motivated, thinking dog who lives to protect his family. His innate desire to guard his herd extends to his family, and he's particularly fond and protective of children.

Author Nikki Moustaki has compiled a comprehensive and useful guide in this Special Limited Edition dedicated to the Kuvasz, covering the breed's origins, characteristics, the breed standard, showing and more. Guest authors and top breeders, Connie Townsend and Bea Page have provided an extensive look at the breed's history in the United States, highlighting the important dogs and breeders responsible for the breed's progress here.

This full-color volume also discusses topics such as selection of a puppy, rearing the puppy, house-training and obedience lessons. Keeping in mind the Kuvasz's unique temperament and high sensitivity to praise and blame, the author instructs owners about the advantages of positive reinforcement in training the breed. As strong-willed and independent as the Kuvasz is, he is still a quick learner given the proper training.

General maintenance, including feeding, grooming and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the preventive healthcare of the breed, capably handled by Dr. Lowell Ackerman, covering parasite control, vaccinations, infectious diseases, spay/neuter and much more.
