"Kuvasz is not only a dog, but a companion. Everyone is afraid of him, but with his family, he is like a cute plush bunny, to whom you can entrust your life. I love that he's not a slob, whining at all strangers, and giggling for the sake of it all. I love that he is headstrong, strong-willed, smart, intelligent and independent. It's not a fashion dog, it's not for everyone. I think a Kuvasz should be earned' (T. Magdolna, Kuvasz fan, Hungary)


"The saying of the Hungarian nobles is true: "Kuvasz is not just anyone's dog". This says it all." (István J., Kuvasz fan, Hungary)


"Your partner, your neighbor, a lifelong commitment! True love, spiritual connection! Independent, argues, decides, I'm not a servant! The kind of person who should keep a Kuvasz is strict, consistent, reliable, who will do what he says or promises to the dog! It requires a patient, persistent, calm owner who looks for a companion, a partner in his dog, and accepts that the dog has independent decisions and arguments!! There is no place for harsh strictness, keeping on a chain, unreliability!" (O. Henrietta, Kuvasz fan, Hungary)


"Kuvasz is a dominant breed. In the pack, they also try to gain dominance amongst each other, and then they decide who is the pack leader. If they learn and accept you as the leader of the pack, when they are puppies, then there will be no dominance struggle. If you treat them like a Barbie doll, they will come out on top” (A. István, breeder, Vojvodina)
