About the family of Livestock Guardian Dogs...

“To this day flocks are guarded in the hills of Asia, Europe and Africa* by powerful, robust dogs that are neither clumsy nor pacific. Despite the distances that separate them these breeds have much in common, and the Kuvasz is a member of this extended sheepdog family,” as is the Slovak Chuvach (Čuvač).

Dr. Buzády Tibor. 2002. Dogs of Hungary. Translated by Bernard Adams. Budapest, Hungary: Nóra Kiadó.  p. 100

Shocking news that doesn't involve LGDs (but maybe should have)

 This Little Penguin story from Australia is so horrifying I don't want it on my Klips blog, but I think it's important to know about this situation, so I set up a separate blog to share it. Click below to see the story on its own separate blog. Warning: it's really bad.

Dr. Buzády Tibor, 1934 - 2021

Thank you for all the knowledge you shared with us.

See more about Dr. Buzády here: dr-buzády-tibor-author-of-dogs-of-hungary
 

 I will always love this quote from Dr. Buzády's book, Dogs of Hungary

"The Kuvasz:

"Breeders and owners treat their dogs as if they were their own children. There are always a couple of characteristics of the dogs in which they like to take special pride.

"Long tales are told of the mischievousness or emotional instability of the Puli, while the attentiveness and enthusiasm for work of the Vizsla are spoken of with pleasure.

"The Pumi’s crazy behavior or the way in which the mighty Komondor can be gentle as a lamb....the list could grow.

"Owners of the Kuvasz, however, are convinced that theirs is the most beautiful dog in the world – and not without reason.  The handsome animal never fails to give passers-by in the street something to stare at, and there is always a crowd around it at a show."

Dr. Buzády Tibor. 2002. Dogs of Hungary. Translated by Bernard Adams. Budapest, Hungary: Nóra Kiadó. P. 89.
