Despite its power, a Cuvach’s movements are surprisingly light, supple and speedy, whatever the terrain or time of year. Its preferred gait is the trot.

About the Slovakian Chuvach

Slovakian Chuvachs are solidly-built mountain dogs with a thick white coat and a robust bone structure. They are members of a lively, vigilant and fearless breed.

Over the centuries, these imposing, rectangular dogs have become accustomed to the harsh climate of the Tatra Mountains in Slovakia. The breed name is related to the Slovak word meaning “to listen”.
