This stunning, young dog has it all! We could not be more pleased…outstanding conformation, sound structure & movement, and lovely temperament. Kudos to Tanner's "Best Friend" and handler, Diana Wilson, and Breeder/Owner, Lynn Brady, on the fabulous job of conditioning and handling Tanner to his record breaking AKC show wins that made him the Top Winning Kuvasz in breed history.  

Tanner is currently training in Obedience and Therapy to round out his achievements.

Thank you to the many judges and "Fans" who appreciate Tanner as an outstanding representative of the breed who encompasses the Total Package!!!
