Overview
The Komondor is self assured, protective, and pretty serious. This beautiful dog likes people, is very affectionate, but is wary towards strangers. However, he will warm up quickly if the person poses no threat. This assertive breed is great for guarding flock.
Character
The Komondor can be very protective, but calm in the house if he senses no danger. Does very well in obedience, and is willing to please his owner. Due to his protective nature, this breed should be well socialized at an early age.
Temperament
A very devoted member of his family, the Komondor is loving and loyal. This breed is naturally a great guardian, which makes him good for guard dog work, however his guarding instincts can turn into aggressiveness, as he tends to protect everything he believes is his.
Care
The Komondor has very sensitive skin when it comes to certain flea and tick preventative, however it must regularly be treated as the coat is thick and corded making it difficult to remove them. Long hair can grow in between the pads of the feet, so this must be trimmed.
Coat
The Komondor has a long and soft white coat that should always be corded. The coat of this breed helped him in earlier years blend in with sheep while on lookout. The coat of the Komondor should always be heavy, and be natural.
Training
The Komondor is very intelligent, but can be willful and is independent, so he should require obedience training as an early age. As a puppy, he should be experienced to new sights and surroundings to avoid aggression later.
Activity
The Komondor is not recommended for apartment life or city life. He does best in a country type environment. However, will do well in a home if given regular opportunities to run in a fenced yard. Komondors can also be very lazy, making exercise mainly his responsibility.

Annual cost of owning a Komondor puppy

When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

What is a "heat" and how long does it take for a Komondor to grow its full size?

1 Comment

A "heat" is when an intact, female dog is ready to breed. Just like humans, a female, intact dog will go through a period of estrus when they are ready to breed. The females vulva will become swollen and then she will start to secrete a pinkish fluid, after a few days of that she will begin to bleed for 5 - 10 days. Then she will secrete a clear fluid for 3 - 5 days; this is the time when she is ready to breed and can become pregnant. Also a Komondor will become fully grown at 2 years of age.

How are Komondors with younger children, ages 4 and 8?

The Komondor should have no problem with children of that age, especially if the dog is a puppy and grows up with the children. However, all interactions between a puppy and child should be supervised as children can accidentally hurt a puppy quite easily.

Anonymous asked:
What about breed colors? Why in breeds like the Komondor for instance-their color is white, yet, I see photos of black and grey. Same with other breeds, all colors aren't listed, or the photos are wrong.

The Komondor breed of dog is white. That is the breed standard. However, the Hungarian Puli is a black breed of dog that looks just like the Komondor, only smaller. What you are most likely seeing is the other breed. The Komondor ranges from 2.2-2.6 feet at the shoulder and weighs between 85-130 lb. While the Hungarian Puli ranges from 1.3-1.4 feet at the shoulder and only weighs in at 23-25 lbs.

Does a Komondor's coat take a lot of time, and are their dreadlocks high maintenance?

Komondor's coats can sometimes take a few hours to separate every day to keep from matting. The cords are less work to groom if they are cut shorter. But if kept how it naturally grows, their dreadlocks are very high maintenance.
