This dog is independent and may be stubborn. It is happy to follow its guarding instincts. It is protective and needs plenty of socialization to get along with strangers and strange dogs.
The Komondor originated in Hungary around the 1500s. Because they looked so similar to sheep, they were able to effectively protect the flock and keep wolves away. They are very independent and stubborn which means they do not do well with strangers or other dogs. However, they are calm and quiet and make good protectors. They need regular exercise such as a daily walk to keep them happy. The Komondor's dreadlock coat can be difficult to clean and dry. Cords must be separated regularly to prevent matting.
