Welcome to Glacier Creek Hungarian Kuvasz,
founded in Eagle River, Alaska! Temperament and working ability
are our top priorities, and our puppies combine the finest imported
bloodlines to become trustworthy family pets, Best in Show and Top 10
winners, obedience stars and proven livestock guardians. We
strive to preserve the Hungarian style heritage of the kuvasz we breed.
Our puppies are raised in our home as versatile working members
of our family where they patrol our forest to drive off wayward
bears and wolves.
