The Komondor is built for livestock guarding. His temperament is like that of most livestock guarding dogs; he is calm and steady when things are normal, but in case of trouble, the dog will fearlessly defend his charges. He was bred to think and act independently and make decisions on his own.
He is affectionate with his family, and gentle with the children and friends of the family. Although wary of strangers, they can accept them when it is clear that no harm is meant but is instinctively very protective of its family, home and possessions. The Komondor is very good with other family pets, often very protective over them, but is intolerant to trespassing animals and is not a good dog for an apartment. The dog is vigilant, will rest in the daytime, keeping an eye on the surroundings, but at night is constantly moving, patrolling the place, moving up and down around the whole area. These dogs usually knock down intruders and keep them down until the owner arrives. Hungarian Komondor breeders used to say that an intruder may be allowed to enter the property guarded by a Komondor, but he will not be allowed to come out again.
When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.
Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Komondor Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
