Noise Sensitivity

A vital component of a stable temperament is for the dogs to be able to handle any loud noises or sounds, such as fireworks, gun shots, loudspeakers and especially thunderstorms. I believe it is unacceptable for a LGD to be noise sensitive. Let’s imagine for a second that LGDs are entrusted to watch over a flock of sheep and a thunderstorm ensues, would it be acceptable for them to run away and hide and leave the flock unprotected? Of course NOT! As a result, I would not breed any Kuvasz that is noise sensitive.

Zenta's reaction to fireworks.

Notice in this clip how close and intense the fireworks are, yet Zenta and Labanc just continue on about their business.
