Living Area: The Komondor is a hearty breed and will do best if it lives in an area or circumstance that allows it to be out of doors. This breed loves to run and exercise itself and having space to do so will add to animal's quality of life. However, the breed can do well in apartment dwellings too as long as it is given enough time and opportunity to exercise outside. The Komondor is very well suited to different climates. It will do fine in high heat climates and it will do equally well in cooler climates. Unlike many breeds that are better suited to living indoors, the Komondor can live out of the home if needed. This should only be done if the outside portion that it will live in is securely fenced and gated. Remember, this is an instinctive guard dog and it will go after what it feels is a threat to the owner or to the owner's property.

About this Breed

There is almost no mistaking the Komondor for any other breed. The Komondor is a massive dog with a proud gait and a long history of honor and pride. The Komondor worked with the Puli in ancient Hungary. The Puli would do the actual herding during the daylight hours, and the massive Komondor would guard the flock at night. The Komondor is completely covered with an extraordinary felted and corded coat. The coat can run from 8 to 11 inches long and is one of its most unique features. This coat is always white. Some people believe that this corded white coat helps the dog blend in well with the sheep that they guard. It has also been thought that this unique coat add protection to the animal. In the Komondor breed, the head and muzzle are massive and impressive even though they are somewhat short. The animal will have eyes that are dark brown and alert to movement. The Komondor has U-shaped ears that hang down and often seem to blend into the rest of the coat. The body of this breed is characterized by a powerful, deep chest, which is muscular and wide. The breast of the healthy Komondor is broad and well-muscled. For most animals the belly is somewhat drawn up at the rear, but this can be hard to see when the coat has fully grown out. For show purposes, softness or lack of good muscle tone is a fault. This breed should not only be strong but should look strong as well. When looked upon from a short distance the animal's bone structure should appear massive and strong. The tail hangs down, and this is considered normal.
