The Komondor stands up
to 31.5 inches tall at the shoulder. He is perhaps one of the most unusual looking dogs in the
world. When fully mature, The Komondor sports a long, straight, white coat
that forms natural cords. Cleaning and grooming can be a chore. His cords need to be separated
by hand to keep them from tangling. After a bath, the Komondor can take up to three days to
The Komondor's dignified attitude belies his "dust
mop" appearance. His size and demeanor command instant respect. His distinctive coat has
a purpose - it protects him from the weather and the biting jaws of wild predators! Naturally
protective, he makes an excellent watch dog and guardian. However, he's an independent thinker
used to being on his own, assessing a situation, and taking action without human guidance. He
can be bossy, and may not be the best choice for every family.
Large, territorial, and fiercely protective of his flock
(which will be his family if he has no other animals to guard), the Komondor needs early
socialization and training to learn what is acceptable behavior. He is very smart and learns
quickly. He is devoted to his family and will want to keep an eye on them so you may find
yourself being followed from room to room by your new best friend.
The Komondor is best suited to outdoor living in a rural
or country environment. He needs long daily walks.
