I'm not interested in getting a Kuvasz, but I am fascinated by the dogs and also how a top-rated kennel would be run.  They also do training there and I want to see if they'd be an option for puppy-training classes when we get our dog (I'm researching mastiffs, danes, and newfoundlands).  They've been really helpfull in giving references for vets who are used to large/giant dogs and have been really friendly despite the fact I made it clear that I wasn't going to be buying any puppies!   ;)  (I'll be a first-time dog-owner with little kids.  Sound like I should be getting a Kuvasz?  I think not!  But they are brilliant in the right situation.)

I'll try and get pics (if they let me, don't know their rules/preferences about that).  I'm really looking forward to it.   ;D  They even have puppies right now.  I get to cuddle!!!

Visiting a Kuvasz breder in Brazil?  As out of the USA?  Please keep us posted!

Oh it was lovely.  Just lovely.  Out in the scenic hills of rural Paraibuna.  And I must say, probably the safest house in rural Paraibuna with all those Kuvasz!

The folks are really nice and are going to introduce me to some nice great dane breeders and mastiff breeders at a Dog Show a couple hours from here (if I'm able to go that is...).  They are lovely folks and everything was muddy cause we've been having rains like nuts the past few days.

There were only about 2-3 Kuvaszok running about, the rest were in their pens (ivy-coverred pens on a scenic hill mind you  ;)).  Usually everyone is out running about but as I was coming (and with my 2 year old daughter) they decided it was best to play it safe.

I didn't feel right whipping out my camera and taking pics, especially as the place was muddy and it wouldn't show off to its best. 

But if you're curious, check out their website: http://www.canilkuvaszok.com.br/index.htm  and click on "nosso canil" to see pics of the place.   

They also raise French bulldogs and there were constantly about 8 underfoot.  My daughter *loved* it.  And boy are my cats interested in me now!!!!  Sniffing like nuts.   :D

So anyway, lovely morning, lovely folks.
