Kuwazzok arrived in Hungary in the Middle Ages, but it was thought that his dynasty goes back to ancient Turkey and Tibet. As livestock guardians, they had the patience to keep a close watch on their herd for days on end, and also the courage to take on wolves or armed dons when called upon. His skills eventually came to the attention of Hungarian nobles. It is said that King Mathasi I, whose court was beset by intrigue and treachery, trusted Kuvasok more than his palace guards.

Kuwaz has deep intelligence and determination and is extremely dedicated to his family. While these qualities make them wonderful companions, they can also challenge the novice dog owner. Early socialization and puppy training classes are a must for the Kuwaz puppy. Kuvas training takes patience, as this independent breed gradually matures. Sensitive problem-solvers, Kuwaz do not respond well to rigorous or repetitive training techniques. Kuvas was reared to protect livestock, and is a natural protector and will protect family, home and property.
Having developed into a strong, active Working Dog, Kuvas needs daily activity for his health and happiness. A fitted yard is required for this large and agile dog. Adequate and controlled exercise is a requirement for a fast-growing Kuwaz puppy.
Kuwaz should perform well on high quality dog food, whether it is commercially manufactured or prepared with the supervision and approval of your vet. Any diet should be appropriate for the age of the dog (puppy, adult or senior). Some dogs are at risk of being overweight, so watch your dog’s calorie consumption and weight level. Treatment training can be an important aid, but giving too much can lead to obesity. Know which human foods are safe for dogs, and which are not. If you have any concerns about your dog’s weight or diet, check with your vet. Clean, fresh water must be available at all times. Like many large dogs, kuwaz can develop bloat, or gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), where the stomach expands and turns. The causes of bloat have not been fully understood, but experts believe that preventing multiple, small meals per day and vigorous exercise around meals may reduce the likelihood of this happening.
Kuvas is an overall healthy breed, and will screen its stock for responsible breeders for health conditions such as elbow and hip dysplasia, autoimmune thyroiditis, patellar laxation, cardiac status, and progressive retinal atrophy. No ethical breeder would object to questions about the results of a health test of their breeding stock. Big and deep-breasted breeds can develop an abdominal, sudden, life-threatening disturbance of the abdomen that can occur with twisting. Owners should learn what signs to look for and what they should do.
