Kuvasz as Livestock Guardian Dogs in Canada

Vas Krisztián

The demand for livestock guardian dogs (LGD) is strong in Canada due to added environmental protection laws and the continuous presence of large predators. Coyote (canis latrans) populations are at an all-time high in most places and continue to expand and are even evolving into new hybridized species, such as the coywolf. From the 1970-80’s onward the ancient tradition of utilizing LGDs has been introduced to North America.
