  • Komondor

    The Hungarian Komondor is a strong and powerful breed of guardian sheepdog draped in chunks of white dread like “cords.” Due to its physical attributes and exceptional instinctive consciousness, the Komondor breed is a natural guardian of livestock and property. Discover more about our Komondor puppies for sale below!

    Breed History

    The Komondor was brought to Europe between the 12th and 13th Centuries by Turkic speaking nomadic Cumans. Komondors are descendants of Tibetan dogs. Historical data speculates that they originate from an area close to the Yellow River. During the second world war, the Komondor breed neared extinction. 

    They were hunted down by German and Russian forces who sought to occupy the farmlands and property of Hungarians. 

    Since the breed is an instinctive guardian, its defensive tendencies were albeit problematic to the invading forces. This prompted the large-scale reduction of their population during the second world war.

    Temperament

    The Komondor was primarily bred for the defense of livestock. Its temperament has a stack resemblance with most guard dogs; at a first look, they appear furry, cuddly, and calm, but when there’s a potential threat to the livestock or property they’re guarding, they snap into an attacking defensive mode. 

    The Komondor breed is bred to function independently and can make decisions on their own. Komondors are notably affectionate with the family they protect; they can also show affection to children and friends of their family as long as there’s no perceived imminent threat to its handlers.

    Environment

    Komondors usually thrive within a familiar setting. A family unit with ample farmland or fenced in backyard is a perfect fit for the Komondor breed. The Komondor is a large dog that requires space to perform the daily physical activity of guarding livestock and protecting the household. In an enclosed space or environment, the Komondor won’t function to its optimal capacity.

     Exercise

    The Komondor is a natural athlete. They’re large, agile and athletic dog breeds that require space to perform physical activities that will keep them healthy and happy. 

    A fenced yard with lots of space is an ideal location for them to perform their daily exercise routine. Dog parks might be ideal for some Dog breeds, but they’re a terrible idea for Komondors. 

    The guardian instinct of Komondors kicks in when they see other dogs, so they usually profile other dogs as potential threats and this could lead to some confusion at the Dog park.

    Grooming

    Grooming the Komondor cords are like grooming dreadlocks. Adequate care must be taken to keep them clean, healthy and free from smell. At 9 to 10 months you’ll notice that the furry coat starts to clump up, you’re required to separate/split them into areas that will eventually grow out into cords. 

    To prevent smells, regular shampoo should be diluted and used to bathe the Komondor. Ensure you rinse out every bit of shampoo and dry out the cords. Placing the Komondor in a windy area or before a large fan will aid in drying the cords. 

    If you fail to rinse every bit of shampoo off the Cord of your Komondor or leave the coat incompletely dry, the result will be “a big old dog with a bad smell.”

    Our Komondor puppies for sale come from either USDA licensed commercial breeders or hobby breeders with no more than 5 breeding mothers. USDA licensed commercial breeders account for less than 20% of all breeders in the country. 

    The unregulated breeders who are selling outside of the USDA regulations and without a license are what we consider to be “Puppy Mills.” We are committed to offering Komondor puppies who will grow up to become important members of your family.
