That breed of dog looks to need work put in by the owner to keep it balanced and productive.
Drives me wild that people go "brain dead" in picking the wrong type dog for the lifestyle the owners live. Like people who choose working dogs, but themselves spend most of their time sedentary, then wonder why their dog is chewing the woodwork, disassembling the sofa, and bouncing off the walls!

As for talking to the guy...
You know how a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, maybe look into if there is a local group of Kuvasz on FB an maybe see if you can possibly invite a couple of them to join you for an outing where everyone gets to see how great the breed is without the bad behavior? The Guy is going to have a chance to talk to others specifically and I'm sure he'd get called on his laxness with his own dog.

Plus, an this sounds a bit nuts, it'd do his dog good to be around others like himself!!!

Know it's prolly more of an investment than you'd intended, but worth a try?

my guy had been dumped off and for 3 years no one even knew what he was. Not the Vet, no one. While camping my husband saw a identical dog & thought it'd be great to tell me ours had gotten loose, enjoying watching me try to go apparently kidnap another campers dog!!!

Turns out He was a Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier mixed with Pittbull. 90lbs of sheer muscle and ALL the Terrier smarts. Because he looked like a giant carnival stuffed toy people underestimated him. Hence all the work in getting his behavior in hand and patience in waiting for him to "get it". Because his original owners had obviously mistreated him, collar grown into neck & matted beyond belief, he needed lots of consistancy.

Knowing what he was helped immensely!!
Working dog, overly sensitive to discipline, and the "Wheatie Welcome" that no amount of work from us was ever going to stop. They are also "runners" so mixed with smarts we had to change exterior door handles to ones he couldn't open.
Also had to change his grooming. Puppy cut in winter. left long in summer to dissuade him from rambling off too far if he did get out.

Every animal has a personality, it's not just dicipline or training, sometimes you just have to use your brain and figure out how to do work arounds that both of you can live with & make sense.

This is turning out to be a great thread!

You're right, I wrote that. But then I thought, let's try to have a normal conversation, you know, jumping over the own shadow and such. I took the insults and thought if I am just friendly long enough it would click with you.

Just like you escalated out of the blue, I hoped you could get to normal that fast too.

I understand though and agree to disagree. But one thing at last, being a "good hostess" does not mean being hostile.

Wish you a nice day, hope you can calm down a bit and find to yourself

Kuvasz are amazing, they got such an interesting history and beautiful too. Maybe the dog felt that and that's why we don't have an issue and others are scared and he picks up on that?
A group meeting? Hm... I don't know if I will go that far but I think you gave me an idea.

Collar grown into his neck, whoa that's aweful! Does he have any long term issues from that?
I think it's Terrier in general who are very unforgiving when treated unfairly, or too harsh, right? I never had one. But looked it up and seems really cool.

You have a picture of that mix of yours?
edit on 16-1-2022 by Peeple because: asked for pic ...

I might have reacted a little too strong, but I strongly feel it is wrong.
I have said my piece I know you read it.
Let's not overdramatize it it's just two people disagreeing on the internet.
Next thread or whenever I won't treat you differently that much I can promise. I mean I don't get hung up on it. And you shouldn't either.
But also: read the links. Because it's really wrong.
Last time I mentioned it because the boss lady will bann me if I don't behave...
