In a litigious society, owning a large dog can be a liability. The owner of any pet is responsible for making sure that it does not cause harm to other people or their property. This becomes even more of an issue if the dog lives in an urban setting, where the chances of it misbehaving increase with the number of strangers in its environment. Add to that the fact that the Komondor was bred to be a guard dog, and an owner has to take extra precautions not to end up with legal problems from people who are intimidated by large dogs.

In order to reduce the possibility that someone thinks you are a negligent owner, get your dog into obedience training as soon as possible. If you show that you understood the risks you took owning a Komondor and were responsible enough to get it training, this can help make your neighbors more confident that the dog is not a threat.

While others may have no problems spotting a dog's aggressive tendencies, the owner may be more inclined to overlook them. Keep in mind that whether you think the dog is aggressive or not, you are responsible as the owner for making sure it does not harm other people or their property. If you are getting a lot of attention from the police, the animal control office, your neighbors, or even some state agencies, then you need to be proactive in addressing the complaints against your dog.

The best way to make sure you are not charged with putting others at risk is to make sure your dog has its own separate yard. It should be enclosed with a large privacy fence that the dog cannot jump over. The posts should be deeply embedded so that it cannot escape by tunneling or chewing them out. The gates on your property should be padlocked and signs should be posted warning utility people and others to beware of the dog.

Keep the Komondor away from children it is not familiar with. Never leave the dog unsupervised with a stranger in your home. If a dog bites someone, your liabilities increase. You may be asked to pay for the medical bills of the person who was bit. Your dog's previous aggressive history will be questioned. If the dog bit someone before this particular incident and it has a pattern of aggressiveness, which you have ignored up until then, you can end up with criminal charges. These can range from misdemeanors for failing to isolate your animal to even first-degree murder charges, if the victim dies as a result of an attack. At the very least, the animal control office will probably begin to show a strong interest in you and your dog and can end up having it euthanized.
