Known for its dignity, strength and courage, the Komondor is generally reserved and serious with strangers but demonstrative with those he loves. Owners should be willing to provide daily exercise and obedience training. Early socialization for puppies is critical, especially to any unusual situations the dog will encounter later in life. This is important in reducing the number of situations that might trigger an unexpected protective response.

The Komondor is chief of the herdsmen dogs, but not often utilized for rounding up the herds; merely accompanies the flocks and herds in exceptional cases, acting as more of a protector than herder.
Descended from Tibetan dogs, the Komondor was brought to Hungary a thousand years ago by nomadic Magyars.
Failure of the coat to cord by two years of age is a disqualification in the Komondor breed.
