The Komondor is a loving dog who needs little exercise and likes to keep its human companions in sight, often following them. Intelligent with a keen instinct for protection, the Komondor's independent thought process can make this breed ill-suited to many. Always alert; the Komondor is a loud barker.
Lactation is often delayed after whelping, so puppies may need to be bottle fed for a couple of days.
The Komondor, which has an average lifespan of 10 to 12 years, is susceptible to minor health issues like canine hip dysplasia (CHD) and gastric torsion, as well as otitis externa, hot spots, and entropion. To identify some of these issues early, your veterinarian may recommend hip tests for dogs of this breed of dog.

An ancient breed, komondors are originally from Hungary. Experts believe the breed, descended from the Caucasian shepherd, was brought there by traveling nomads in the 13th century. The breed was revered in Hungary, used for centuries to guard—not herd—flocks of sheep.
