Is A Komondor right for you and your family?
I would say yes, if you are looking for a dog that is devoted, loyal and is a natural guard of the whole family.
Komondors are reasonable, friendly, calm dogs when everything runs on a normal routine.
The Komondor can be aggressive if he feels his flock, family, or property is in danger.
Komondors are independant thinkers and tend to make decisions to do what they think is best on their own.
Komondors like children, other dogs,family pets, farm animals.
They will protect and care for anything that is in the family, even cats.
The Komondor has a corded, long and soft white coat that requires frequent care.
They have sensitive skin so special treatment is advised when bathing.
Special attention must be paid to the komondors pads on his feet, because long hair can grow and knot between the pads of is feet.
Hair on foot pads should be trimmed a few times a year.
Training a Komondor is relatively easy as this is a very intelligent dog.
The kompondors trainer must be calm, consistent yet heavy-handed, as Komondors are usually willful and independant.
Early socialization is vital and concidered a must for this breed.
We whelp all of the puppies on our farm in our basement and handle every puppy everyday.
Puppies that leave Feathers And Fleece Farm are far more socialized than any other breeder can offer you.
All in all, these dogs are perfect for families living in the suburban areas as they naturally love big places and require large yards and runs.
It is just not advisable to place a Komondor in an inner city apartment.
