PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion


Having a dense, protective white corded coat, the alert, confident Komondor is a large, muscular Hungarian dog bred to guard sheep and cattle. Fiercely loyal to his human companions, this courageous breed is extremely territorial and thrives on having a responsibility. Although somewhat inactive as an adult, the Komondor should be exercised and taken on several leash walks daily.

Did you know?
Descending from various Tibetan dogs and the Aftscharka, a breed discovered by the Huns while passing through Russia, the Komondor was imported to Hungary in the 14th century by nomadic Magyars. The distinctive corded coat of the Komondor, which begins to cord at 9 to 12 months of age, protects the guard dog from attack and weather extremes.
