Komondor Characteristics

Truly a unique breed, the Komondor stands out in a crowd with ease. While their floor-length rope-like coats make them quite distinct, the Komondor is a herding dog and can herd with the best of them. However, these dogs are more commonly found as household companions these days, thanks to their loving personalities and extreme loyalty.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Responsive

Standing around 25-27 inches and weighing between 80-100 pounds, the Komondor is a large herding breed that has a protective streak and is never happier than when watching over the family.  Early socialization and obedience training works wonders with this breed and will ensure the Komondor knows who the alpha is, and will keep their protective side in check.  
 
This protective side can also make having other dogs in the house difficult. Again, obedience training will be your best bet towards a peaceful household, but some Komondors will simply not stand for another canine in the house. They typically have a good relationship with livestock and cats, however.
 
Their iconic coat needs consistent care as well, as it can develop a mildew-like smell if left damp for too long.  Brushing is not necessary for their unique corded braids, but those braids tend to attract dirt and parasites. Frequent trips to the groomer will be necessary to keep the Komondor's coat looking white.
 
While not the breed for everyone, these dogs are loyal to the core, and if you can provide the right level of leadership and stability, these dogs will protect you with their lives.
