Komondor Dog Temperament
Bred as an independent protector of livestock, the komondor is true to his heritage. He is an independent thinker and can be stubborn or domineering. He is not for meek people who can be dominated and socialization is essential. He is good with other pets and especially livestock. In fact, he is happiest when he has something or someone to watch over. Although usually calm and quiet, he is utterly fearless when the need arises. As a natural guardian, he is protective of children in his own family, but he may at times misunderstand rough-and-tumble games of visiting children.
