Falling in love with that beautiful, white Čuvač puppy or dog in a photo is the easy part. Living with one, training, socializing and paying the food and vet bills is not that easy. Bringing any puppy or dog into your life is a big decision and a life-long commitment, at least for the dog's life. Puppies grow up, get big and as they age you will need to be prepared to love and care for them ALWAYS. This is even more important with a rare breed like the Čuvač who forms such a close bond with their family and usually does not adapt well to a change in owners when they are older.
But Čuvač owners will tell you that this breed is worth it! These are wonderful companion and guardian dogs - intelligent, beautiful, large, loving, loyal and fun. It is important that the person who buys a Čuvač understands the nature and needs of this breed. These smart, somewhat independent dogs are not for everyone. So read through this website again and ask yourself if you are ready for this serious commitment. Are you willing to care for and love your Čuvač from puppyhood, adolescence, maturity, old age and to the end of its life. Nothing else is acceptable. Loving, lifetime homes are very important. Your reward? The best dog you may ever own.
There are very few Slovenský Čuvač breeders in the USA. Since 2010, only 11 litters were born in America and only two litters in Canada. Usually there is only one litter born in a year. READ MORE
The good news is that Čuvač dogs rarely show up in rescue or in need of re-homing. At this time we are not aware of any Čuvačs that need a new home.
