The Komondor is a massive dog with a proud gait. It is serious, confident, alert and commanding. It is very strong and agile for its size. This is a hardy, healthy dog; it can tolerate changing temperatures. Its body is totally covered with an extraordinary felted and corded coat, which is 8 to 11 inches (20-27cm.) long, and always white.

The Komondor (plural is Komondorok) is a big, muscular dog with plenty of bone and substance, covered with an unusually, heavy, white corded coat. Puppies are white and fluffy and tend to form cords at about 3 to 4 months of age. It makes an excellent guard dog.


Color of the coat is white, but not always the pure white of a brushed coat, a small amount of cream or buff shading is sometimes seen in puppies, but fades with maturity. In the ideal specimen the skin is gray, pink skin is not desirable but is acceptable. Color other than white, with the exception of small amounts of cream or buff in puppies, is a disqualification.


Dense, protective coat. The puppy coat is relatively soft, but it shows a tendency to fall into cord-like curls. Never brush or comb the coat! It is divided into cords and trimmed. Its coat needs a lot of bathing and takes a long time to dry. It sheds very little if any.

Health Issues:

The Komondor is prone to hip dysplasia, bloat and skin problems. To minimize the risk of your Komondor developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a dog from a reputable Komondor breeder.
