A fully corded Komondor is an incredible sight! Their distinctive corded coat serves to protect them from attack, help them blend in with the flock, and endure inclement weather. They are livestock guarding breed of imposing size, structure, and courage. Like the Kuvasz, they are valued for their ability to work without oversight or commands from their master. The Komondor was developed in Hungary and is thought to descend from the Aftscharka, a dog brought from the southern Russian steppes by the Huns during their conquests. While very loyal and devoted to their human family, they are protectors by nature so are inclined to be suspicious of newcomers and reserved with strangers. They benefit highly from training and, since they are an active breed, need daily exercise. Maintaining their coats requires a large amount of time and attention so it befits an owner to seek guidance from an experienced owner or breeder in regards to caring for their cords.
