The Komondor is a serious dog who loves the outdoors. He can think for himself, since his ancestors usually protected sheep with no people nearby. These qualities mean he does best in a family that knows how to handle a bold dog who needs plenty of room to run.

The Komondor is a member of the Working Group and was first recognized by the AKC in 1937.

KomondorThis is what MY Angle Baby would look like if I would let her Cords Grow out. But, because she lives here in Texas I do cut her down for the summer. Infact her hair grows so fast I cut her down every 7 weeks.

So you want to own a Komondor?
 
When you see a dog in a white Corded coat there is no mistaking it for a Komondor. The Komondor's coat is cord-like and requires a lot of work to maintain.  And I do mean a lot of maintains.

This breed was bred to think for itself and is usually intelligent. Given the proper care and home, a Komondor is a responsible, loving dog. Obedience training  is a must... This independent smart dog needs obedience training starting  early .  They have a job to do and they will find it and do it. There job is to Gard....
 
 
The Komondor is a flock guardian, not a herder.
The mature, experienced dog tends to stay close to his charges, whether a flock or family; she is unlikely to be drawn away from them in chase, and typically doesn't wander far. Though very sensitive to the desires of his master, heavy-handed training will produce a stubborn, unhappy Komondor.
 
While reserved with strangers, the Komondor is demonstrative with those he loves, selflessly devoted to his family and his charges, and will defend them against any attack.
 
I do not breed Komondors. There are very few good Komondor breeders. I do know good Komondor people but, as for me" My Angle Baby " is a Pet and a working part of my Kennels.
 
The Komondor Rescue center is a non-profit referral organization dedicated to placing unwanted Komondors into new carefully screened homes.
