Cavalier King Charles Spaniel


Komondorok love being out in the country. They like to live outdoors in areas that are not too hot and humid. They need a large amount of space to exercise, so an urban environment is not ideal for them. It doesn't mean that they cannot live in the city in an apartment, it means that they will have to be exercised regularly outside to keep them happy in an urban environment. There are also other considerations for creating a large, country setting for the dog instead of keeping them in urban areas.

Most breeders would not recommend an urban environment for this dog also because it is such a large dog. This dog is very headstrong and can pose a threat to people it doesn't know. Even with obedience training, the dog was bred to protect the livestock and persons or herders and it continues to have this tendency to protect and be loyal. It can be socialized, but it should be done in a special environment to keep it calm and obedient.

In an urban area, the dog will still require space outside to exercise. You may have to put special high fencing to mark the boundaries of your property well and keep anyone from inadvertently crossing the dog's path without warning. You would want your property to be somewhat set apart from your neighbors, if you intend to own a Komondor. The fencing should be sturdy and high to keep the dog from breaking through it and disturbing your neighbor's pets or children. The fence posts should be very deeply embedded to keep the dog from digging under the fence too. It can be very aggressive towards other animals and should be isolated from them; however, it can be very protective and loving with your own family pets. It all depends on how well the dog has socialized with people and your other pets.

The dog's coat, which is densely corded, can pick up dirt and debris easily. It can also soak up large amounts of water and take a long time to dry. Try to keep the dog in areas that aren't going to cause you to spend a whole lot of time grooming it or drying it.

This dog used to be a herder and will work well on a farm. It makes an excellent guardian for chickens, goats, and sheep. It takes great pride in its role of guard dog and can work well in areas that are rural. If the dog is out in the country, you do not have to supervise it as much as when it is in an urban area and it's deep bark won't be a bother to your far-strung neighbors. In return, the dog can help with keeping your livestock protected and be a great companion for your kids.
