The Komondor was originally bred in Hungary to guard livestock and homes. His appearance is quite unique making you think that he was designed to be a floor mop rather than a guard dog and family companion. The average height of a Komondor is 2 feet, 1 inch to 2 feet, 3 inches weighing about 80 to 100 pounds. They have a lifespan of 10 to 12 years.
Originally bred in Hungary to guard livestock the Komondor is well known for his bravery and strength. He is also very territorial and protective and will always do all his best to protect his owner, his family and all the possessions. The Komondor loves all the energy demanding activities like fly-ball, Frisbee, running, swimming and many others. If he is left alone more than a few hours a day he can become a bit anxious and might become very loud and destructive. The Komondor is a great watchdog because he is very reserved with strangers and will always let you know when a stranger is approaching your property. He is known to behave well when children are around but very small children should always be well supervised when they encounter any type of dog breed because they might have the tendency to tease and no dog will accept that. Obedience training and early socialization are very important in this case and can make a big difference. Overall the Komondor can make a great guard dog as well as a great family companion.
The Komondor can be a bit harder to train than other dog breeds but with a bit of perseveration or sending him to a good dog training school you can accomplish this thing too. This dog breed can learn commands a bit slower than other dog breeds but once they learn something, they will never forget it so you shouldn’t be worried that you are wasting your time with his training.
Shedding should not concern you at all if you plan to buy this type of dog breed. In fact you will never find a hair in your house because the Komondor is not a type of dog breed that sheds hair.
The Komondor, like many other dog breeds, need daily exercise. Don’t worry, those needs can be met quite easy with simple walks or playing some fun games. His coat needs to be shaped two or three months and proper brushing should be done every now and then.
As with many other breeds the exact year when the Komondor was developed is uncertain however there are some descriptions of this breed that dates back to the 16th century. He was originally developed in the European country called Hungary with the main purpose to guard livestock and homes. Time has passed and now besides the fact that he is still an excellent guard dog he also makes a great family companion.
