Komondor

The Komondor (plural is Komondorok) is a big, muscular dog with plenty of bone and substance, covered with an unusually, heavy, white corded coat which resembles an old-fashioned string mop. Puppies are white and fluffy and tend to form cords at about 3 to 4 months of age. He is very strong and agile for his size. A hardy, healthy dog he can tolerate changing temperatures. Keeping the coat of a Komondor is a challenge and should not be taken lightly. Cords continue to grow and must be maintained by dividing new hair growth every two to three months from the skin out to the existing cords. If not trimmed regularly the coat will reach the ground by the time he is 6 years old. Another consideration is that coat is always picking up debris from outside like dirt, leaves, twigs, small living creatures and this needs to be removed.
