Kuvasz Breed Maintenance
This dog needs a lot of exercising if it is not a working dog. They are not recommended for apartment living because of their active nature and this hybrid is best in a large, well fenced yard. If they are not exercised enough or are left alone in a small yard for long periods of time, they can become quite destructive or even aggressive. They love to have access to the home to be with their family but will guard the house and family with its life, and unless they are well socialised when young, any stranger is suspicious and the Kuvasz will decide for itself whether to take action or not. These dogs need a strong leader to guide them and respond best to teaching, not training – especially not harsh training. The coat is relatively easy to care for, although it is not advisable to bathe them too often or it will remove the natural oils that give the coat its natural ability to shed dirt and almost self-clean. It will require regular brushing though, to keep the coat from matting and assist with shedding. If they are a drooler, their mouth may just need a quick wipe now and then.
