Komondor

Komondors make good watch dogs and are protective of their family. It is a large breed, needing training & socializing while young, for they can be stubborn.

The komondor is said to originate in Hungary, Europe, where they are still used to herd sheep. The dogs' appearance makes it easy to hide alongside the sheep, from where it can surprise & attack predators.

They have long floppy ears somewhere amongst the cords of hair.

The tail hangs down to the hocks, with a slight curve.

Coat: The komondor has a coat like a puli, hanging in soft, wooly dreadlocks. It is not washed, as it takes up to 12 hours to dry. It's best to avoid swimming, or muddy ground. Showdogs are not clipped, but pet-owners sometimes find it easier to manage the coat if it is clipped. Daily brushing helps. The thick coat is not suitable for a hot climate.

The feet are big.

Colour: white coat & brown eyes.

Class: working

 

 

This komondor had his photo taken at a boarding kennel in New Zealand.

The name is hard to spell! At first I thought it was commodore - but that's a naval officer! Then I spelled it kommondor, commondor, but finally got it right - komondor!

How breeds of dogs originated

 

man sitting in barber's chair  What would you and I look like if we never did a thing to our hair? Every time we looked in a mirror, we'd get a jolt! The Bible says, "If a man or woman wants to make a special vow to God, no scissors or razor should be used on the head. No drinking alcohol for the whole period of the vow - let him separate himself from the world, and be holy for God." Numbers 6. It sounds drastic, but if we took it seriously, every time we longed for scissors, or for a drink, we'd be reminded of our vow to God and it would be a good way to keep God in our minds!
