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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Komondor puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

What about breed colors? Why in breeds like the Komondor for instance-their color is white yet, I see photo's of black and grey-same with other breed's, all colors aren't listed, or the photo's 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 a communication as to which breed is which. 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.

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

the best way is to seperate them by hand. it's best to get them used to you seperating them at least once a week. it should never be brushed or combed and needs to be bathed frequently.

Most vets will tell you that you should wait until a bitch and dog are two years of age. Not to breed on their first heat also not to breed on every heat. You shouldn't breed a dam after the age of five.

When it says the coat is corded it really means that instead of fur the Komondor dogs have giant white dreadlocks! The coats don't always have to be kept in cords. Instead you can clip them down to shorter cords so you don't have to separate the cords every day. They are born without cords but the cords develop when the dog is around 2 years old.

Yes, if a Komondor's hair is kept shorter and not in dred locks. They are more cleanly when kept short though.

No, Komondor's don't shed. They are a non-shedding breed whether the coat is cut short or corded.
