Komondor Grooming and Breed Care

Komondor Temperament

A loyal, protective, and dignified breed, the Komondor is a sensible and attentive dog. He is devoted to his own family, and is very protective of his owners, household children, and even household pets. However, this can mean that he is over-protective when strangers - adults or children - or strange animals are around, so early socialization and supervision is required. These dogs are very independent and self reliant, as these traits are in their nature. As puppies they can be quite energetic and playful, and although they do calm down as they mature, they still remain fast and agile. As adults these dogs have a very deep bark, which although adds to his watchdog abilities can be disturbing late at night.

 

The Komondor does have a tendency to get bored with routine, and needs a variety of mental and physical stimulation. These huge dogs are not suited to apartment life, and need to have a secured, safe area in which to exercise. These dogs can be very territorial and determined, and training can be difficult - the Komondor is best suited to someone with experience of dog ownership and training. This is a breed that is suited to those with plenty of time to commit to their pet, as they need ongoing training as well as being high maintenance in terms of grooming. He also needs an owner who is confident and assertive, yet positive, as otherwise he can become difficult to control.

Komondor Appearance

The Komondor is a very unusual looking dog, and is large to giant in size. Powerful and muscular, these dogs have distinctive corded coats that resemble string mops. He has a high maintenance, double coat, and this covers his whole body and his head. The coloring of the Komondor is white. The Komondor weighs in at 80-130 pounds, and the height of these dogs reaches around 25-30 inches.

Komondor Grooming

When it comes to grooming the Komondor demands a great deal of time and attention to detail, and maintenance of his corded coat can take a lot of dedication. The cords need to be separated at several week intervals, and without regular clipping or trimming can reach the ground by the time he is six years of age. Bathing can be a very time consuming and laborious task, and in order to ensure that the corded coat is properly washed and rinsed an hour or two has to be dedicated to each both for an adult, followed by 24-48 hours of drying. The coat will also need to be cleaned regularly, as it is prone to picking up all sorts of debris outdoors, such as leaves, dirt, and twigs. On the positive side, this breed is a low shedder and may be well suited to those with allergies.

Komondor Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The Komondor is largely a healthy breed, but there are a few health problems to look out for. This includes bloat, HD, entropion, cataracts, sensitivity to drugs and chemicals, and low metabolism. The Komondor puppy's parents should have OFA and CERF certificates. The Komondor has a life expectancy of around 12 years.

Komondor History

Having originated from Hungary, the Komondor enjoys a long history, and was originally bred to guard flocks of sheep.
