Our dogs are competitive at large entries. We believe that it is important to prove one’s breeding stock by earning titles prior to breeding but… show records do not say it all!
Titles are important but be careful not to put too much emphasis on show wins! Some champions are campaigned every weekend with lots of money spent on advertising to help make them top winning dogs!
The Ringerings do not believe in making “kennel champions,” which means earning championships by regularly competing against our own dogs. Where is the fun and the sportsmanship in that?
We prefer to allow our Kuvasz show dogs to be “regular” dogs. We really enjoy their company, and occasionally, we allow them to re-enter the show ring!
Our DOUBLE RING KUVASZ dogs live overseas from Central America to south Africa, and in just about every state in the U.S.A. including:
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
