The Kuvasz has a double coat, formed by guard hair and fine undercoat.

COAT
The Kuvasz has a double coat, formed by guard hair and fine undercoat. The texture of the coat is medium coarse. The coat ranges from quite wavy to straight. Distribution follows a definite pattern over the body regardless of coat type. The head, muzzle, ears and paws are covered with short, smooth hair. The neck has a mane that extends to and covers the chest. Coat on the front of the forelegs up to the elbows and the hind legs below the thighs is short and smooth. The backs of the forelegs are feathered to the pastern with hair 2 to 3 inches long. The body and sides of the thighs are covered with a medium length coat. The back of the thighs and the entire tail are covered with hair 4 to 6 inches long. It is natural for the Kuvasz to lose most of the long coat during hot weather. Full luxuriant coat comes in seasonally, depending on climate.

CHARACTER
The Kuvasz is a spirited dog of keen intelligence, determination, courage and curiosity, yet very sensitive to praise and blame. Primarily a one-family dog, it is devoted, gentle and patient without being overly demonstrative. The Kuvasz is always ready to protect loved ones even to the point of self-sacrifice. It has an extremely strong instinct to protect children. It is polite to accepted strangers, but rather suspicious and very discriminating in making new friends. An unexcelled guard, possessing ability to act on his own initiative at just the right moment without instruction, the Kuvasz is bold, courageous and fearless. It has an untiring ability to work and cover rough terrain for long periods of time. It also has good scent and has been used to hunt game.
