• Kuvasz

    Kuvaszok are large, muscular dogs that are strong, agile, and quick on their feet. These medium-boned dogs show no hint of bulkiness.

  • Group: Herding
    Lifespan: 10–12 yr
    Height: 26–30 in
    Weight: 61–122 lb

  • Care

    Brush Kuvasz coats at least once per week to remove dead hair. These dogs will shed during semi-annual “shedding seasons” and daily brushing is essential to remove all of the dead hair. Occasional baths will keep Kuvaszok clean and smelling fresh. Regular ear cleaning and nail trimmings to prevent cracking, splitting, and painful overgrowths are important and regular dental care that includes at-home teeth brushing

    Feed Kuvaszok a high-quality dog food that is appropriate for their life stage (puppy, adult, senior) and consider a diet formulated for active breeds. Portion out their food with a measuring cup and limit treats to no more than 10% of their daily calories to avoid overfeeding. Kuvaszok, like other large breed dogs, are at higher risk for bloat. Offering several small meals per day (as opposed to a single large meal) could reduce the risk.

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
