Dog training by an expert

Filed under: Two Kuvasz Dogs: Suli and Dugo — theotheri @ 5:05 pm

Dugo was, from the start, irrepressible.  He was born believing that he was number one, and was a natural-born show-off as well.

Within hours of arriving at his new home, he discovered he could fit under the couch:


It drove Suli wild because she couldn’t reach him.

When Dugo got bored, he came out looking for trouble:


Suli let Dugo play with her.  But this wasn’t playing. Dugo is on his back for one of his many transgressions.


We were glad for all the help we could get.  In fact, by the time Dugo was trained properly, we knew Suli deserved about 90% of the credit.



  1. What great photos, they really show the personality of the dogs.
    Wishing you and yours a HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  2. Our older Kuvasok helped teach Ami, the puppy, “the Kuvasz way.” And when Ami was nine months old, she taught the two new mixed-breed pups we’d rescued how to be dogs in the pack. Now we have a new Kuvasz puppy, but Ami has recently survived a brush with death — an immune system disorder that destroyed her red blood cells and resulted in severe anemia. She’s on the mend, but she’s not yet strong enough to teach the puppy the Kuvasz way, and the two who taught Ami are now 13 and 12 years old. We are trying to take Ami’s place, but we know that only the training of an older Kuvasz can teach the younger. We can’t wait for Ami to regain her stamina and put the puppy in her place. 🙂

    • Thank you for your comment. I bet you have as many stories as we have! I’d love to hear more. I don’t know about you, but my own rather species-centric views about intelligence, about fairness and sharing, about authority, and about cooperation, and certainly about loyalty all were significantly top-ended by watching our two dogs interact.

      Thank you again.
