Komondors are calm and serious, but they need a great deal of supervision, and lots of space for exercise. They're extremely protective and aggressive with other dogs. Komondors need professional obedience training, and they love to bark.

Komondors are working dogs. In general working dogs pull sleds and carts, guard homes, and serve in the military. Because these dogs are intelligent and capable of learning almost anything, they make excellent companions.

Their very size can make them difficult to control, so they must be trained by a competent professional. Most working dogs are pack dogs, so they're often aggressive with strange dogs and other pets.

Special considerations: 
Although this dog looks like a lovable dust mop, it's strong and independent, which makes it hard to handle.
