Komondor Description

The first thing you notice about the Komondor breed is the beautiful, corded coat similar to it’s relative the smaller Puli. The head and muzzle are heavy and short. The ears are pendant styled and the tail is long. Their extraordinary coat is corded and is appoximately 11 inches long and always white, the coat helps the dog blend in with its flock of sheep as essentially this breed is a working breed. The coat also protects them from any predators after their flock, the outer coat actually fuses together with the dog’s undercoat making the cords.

Komondor Character

The Komondor as a breed is a working breed they need a lot of socialising as a puppy to make a good family dog, if they are raised with children and other animals they can fit in well. They have protective natures and are reserved around strangers. They are independent and dominant so training them is challenging. The Komondor is a very loyal breed and affectionate with its family but not recommended as a first dog due to its high herding and guarding instincts.
