Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

      We must be smart and take into account all factors. We are the boss on Earth so it's the duty of human race. It's not an option.
      I saw a problem (this case) and did everything what I could. I do not want anybody impossible.

        The simple fact remains that regardless of reason. the dog was no longer even remotely relliable around people, even ones very knowledgeable of the breed. Sometimes being adopted by God is the kindest safest solution not only for the people but the dog as well. One can be sad and angry over the circumstances without being wholly irresponsible in placing that animal. Kudos to the people who had the bravery and morality to do the right thing for the dog and the people.

            This was smart and did take into account all factors in my opinion. This was the closest thing to a happy ending this story was going to have. It could have been so much worse.

              Sorry but a tea cup poodle with an unpredictable biting issue needs the same decision made as this dog, breed not important. Kudos to them for making a hard but responsible decision.

                Last weekend we did a 5 mile walk with our Kuvaszes in beautiful natural surroundings of Hungary.
                I wish you had been there!

                  My ex husband liked to play tug of war with our SWEET Doberman. I told him it was a stupid idea as it promotes dog's agressive behavior and toward humans. Now mind you, this Dobergal didn't have a mean bone in her body...but she growled in this 'game'.

                  TUG OF WAR WITH A DOG IS STUPID!! with a big dog is really stupid...with a dog with a biting history....really?? that takes the prize. Don't mean to offend OP's friend but what are they thinking??

                  I am a bit passionate about this as I volunteer at Animal Control and see the badly behaved dogs who have not had training or bad handling and end up being euthanized for human stupidity. And sadly the sweet ones because owners do not reclaim their un neutered strayed dogs...or they surrender unhandelable ones..all due to owner neglience.

                  Pick the right type of dog, train it, handle it consistently and DO NOT PLAY TUG OF WAR...some Pits are lovely...but there are laws against owning them because of stupid owners!

                      There are bad representatives of EVERY breed. Some are born that way, some are made that way.
                      Euthanizing a dog with unpredictable aggression that does not quickly reform with training is kindest to everyone. I'm glad they made the right decision.

                            I do not have experience with Kuvasz dogs but would like to say that I think some of you have completely forgotten what it means to be dedicated to animals, and knowing what people can do to damage an animal. I adopted a JRT from a shelter, I had to go to the county attorney and have him sign over the dog to me because the shelter wanted to euth. The dog had bitten several children, and adults and was brought to the shelter to be destroyed. I volunteered there and experienced what this dogs was really like. After I finally adopted him, got him home and settled in I saw what a wonderful dog he was. He wore a bright orange collar alerting children to not mess with him...Years later and no bites since I adopted him I found out what happened to him. I ran into a person who knew the dog when he belonged to his previous owners...the previous owners children use to pick him up by his ears and tail and sling him around and then when he would whelp and bite the parents would beat him. He never bit another person and lived a happy life.
                            If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, come sit by me.

                              So where were you when this Kuvasz who supposedly had been the recipient of good and experienced handling and yet was still unpredictably biting was in need of someone to save him? It is swell that you saved your JRT but sometimes they can not be saved and it can be irresponsible to try. See the thread of the pittie who was 'saved' by a neighbor and yet has attacked other dogs twice. Even well intentioned people are more often than not unqualified to deal with dogs with dangerous behavioral issues. So not, I don't think anyone is forgetting anything...not one would deny the damage that can be done to animals by people.

                                Nor can comparing a Jack Russell Terrier with a large male guardian dog. Just in the damage that could be inflicted alone, nevermind the physical reality of handling the dog on a daily basis. This is unreal that this subject keeps coming up when thankfully the caretakers handled this competently almost 9 months ago.

                                  "competently"? To kill a living being because of human ignorance?
                                  Sorry, as I see it's not an explainable thing.
                                  It's not about Kuvaszes, or dogs… it's about us…

                                    Being obsessed about this is not showing your best most rational side.

                                      Sorry, but it's not an answer for the case.
                                      It's been a healthy dog. The owner of the dog had little experience in education. This caused trouble. Then gave the dog a week and euthanized.
                                      As I see to give a real chance for a healthy living being it's very rational.

                                        my advice... just move over from Hungary to the US with your dogs and than experience the way of living over here..... I think you have no idea what you are talking about.....
                                        Sorry to say that, and by the way, I know Hungary. I have been there several times as we have very good friends there....
                                        I think nearly everybody on this thread made very good points...
                                        And by the way I did rehome a Kuvasz some years ago. It was a very very nice female. She came from a great home, lived at a boarding barn with summer camps was used to different people and everything... Her owner was foreclosed and had to give up everything...
                                        My brother in law was looking for a new dog at this time. So I brought this dog to him.. IMO nobody did this dog a favour. She was still nice and did a great job, but I think loosing her original owner kind of broke her heart..... She did become quite old, but she never really settled in and developed a close connection to anybody.
                                        I think this breed is very very special and it should really be avoided to rehome them... And as a breeder you should know that....

                                        Oh and my personal opinion.... Im not even sure whether its useful to breed this type of dog nowadays at all.... The world changed and dogs in most countries are not supposed to be 100% loyal to only one person and defend it against woolves.... You certainly dont do this type of dog a favor in case anything in their surrounding changes... That was the lesson I got out of my rehoming thing...

                                          Yes, as I believe I know this breed. You knew one Kuvasz only.
                                          A young male can rehome easily. This completely sure.

                                          Sorry, I do not want to cause inconvenience, the case is totally clear for me (and as I know for many others as well…).

                                          Please allow me a picture from one of our walks in a Folkmuseum in Hungary. Just look at the dog's and the owner's eyes! HAPPINESS !
