The Slovenský Cuvac is originally descended from the arctic wolves. The name, in turn, comes from the Slovak word “cuvat”, which translated into English means something like “to hear”.
It is precisely this characteristic of the watchful dog that ensured that it was used in particular as a watchdog for sheep and cattle herds on the farms. He also protected his master’s farms from robbers in the Tatra region.
