West Highland White Terrier


A Komondor is a large dog that was used to herd sheep. As such you can expect to have a number of "large dog" issues with this breed. Large dogs, like the Komondor, require enough space to exercise and high fences to keep them within your property. When inside the home, they can be destructive when bored. They are not as playful as other breeds but are fiercely loyal.

This dog is very dominant and needs a firm owner who can take the time with some obedience classes. Left untrained, the dog's natural temperament makes it suspicious of strangers and highly protective of their owners and property. This is the reason that it was highly prized as a sheep dog or to guard horses, llamas, chickens, and other livestock. However, as a pet, this same trait can come out as being overly serious with strangers. If you want a Komondor that is socialized to accept the presence of strangers without potentially seeing them as threats, you need to get them some obedience training.

This is especially important if you have neighbors who have their own animals or small children around. You don't want this large dog to perceive a threat to your person or property from someone that is just minding their own business. If you don't mind some of the potential liabilities of owning a large dog and have ample space to keep it, then it can be a wonderful family protector.

The Komondor does like to sit on peoples' laps, despite its size. Its beautifully corded coat can easily become matted or dirty. Some people find the breed very endearing and don't mind the additional grooming required to keep the coat in good shape. While owners are advised not to brush the hair, it will need to be untangled at times and kept somewhat clean of debris. Bathing a large dog like the Komondor can be a handful and also takes more time than a small breed.

This is a dog that requires supervision as it grows from a puppy into an adult dog. These are the years when it can be socialized to be more friendly and obedient. It is a very strong-willed dog and does like to be dominant, left to make up its own mind. They can even be very noisy dogs if left alone, causing your neighbors to get irritated. That, along with additional grooming needs, means that it can require additional maintenance and companionship. So the owner who gets a Komondor must be able to devote a bit more time to this dog breed than with others. The payback comes in the fierce loyalty and love this dog has for its owner.
