Komondor Puppies

Have you been looking at Komondor puppies and wondering if this dog is your new forever friend? These dogs are great in the right home, but there’s a lot to bear in mind when taking on any new breed.

Here’s a rundown of everything you need to know about these dogs.

Where to Get Komondor Puppies

The Komondor is a pretty popular breed, which means you’re not likely to see one in shelters. You can, of course, always look around though. If you’re happy with a mixed dog or one similar to the Komondor, you might have more luck adopting. Otherwise, you’ll be looking at a breeder. Freya…

Breeders are great when they’re ethical. You should make sure your breeder has a spay/neuter contract in place, health-tested parents, and AKC papers. As well as that, they should be willing to answer any and all questions, and even Facetime with the puppies to ensure they aren’t a scam.

If you’ve found a puppy for a low price but the breeder seems shady, walk away. Backyard breeders will sell you puppies that aren’t healthy or socialized. It’s important not to support these businesses, as that’s how they’re able to create more dogs who are sick and unhappy.

The Cost

The average Komondor is around $1000. If you can find one in a shelter, you’ll pay much less. Almadi…

Appearance

The Komondor is nothing if not a distinct breed of dog! It has long corded white coat which is most unusual in dogs, and needs quite specific care. It’s a big dog, so be aware of that!

Temperament

A Komondor is going to be very loyal to their family. They’ll usually do well with other dogs — as long as introduced carefully and slowly — and will be good with children in the family too. They truly love their family but, as they were bred to be guard dogs, they can be wary of strangers. Make sure to socialize them lots.

They’re not really velcro pups — they tend to be independent. This can make training them a bit of a challenge, as they usually have their own minds! It’s best to have a fenced-in yard for this dog, as they will roam otherwise and don’t have very reliable recall. Skybluefarm…

Komondor Puppies Veterinary Needs

Komondor puppies are among the healthier breeds, but they can be prone to hip dysplasia and some eye issues. You should make sure the parents are health-tested if buying from a breeder to prevent them from inheriting this, and visit a vet if you notice anything out of the ordinary.

Otherwise, you can expect the same needs as any other dog would have.

Firstly, you need to get them their puppy shots (if you get the dog as a puppy). This is a series of three or four that protects them from parvovirus, distemper, etc. Keep them away from other dogs and places others dogs have walked until they have them, as they can be picked up off the ground. At the end, they can get their rabies shot. Kodak…

They’ll usually need a preventative vet visit once a year where they’ll get their booster shots and be checked for parasites and other issues. You should also give them monthly flea and heartworm prevention meds.

Diet

You may have heard owners discuss — or argue about — whether kibble or raw food is best for your dog.

Kibble is, undeniably, the convenient option and usually the cheapest too. Although some will say raw food is healthier, kibble can be perfectly healthy if you pick a good brand. It’s true that many brands are full of more fillers than nutrients, and this can be detrimental over time to the health of your dog. However, if you do your research and ask your vet’s advice, you’ll find that your dog can do great on this food. Danablue…

Raw food is also fine, but you should ask the advice of an expert or have a dog nutritionist prepare the meals. Many subscription services will do this. It’s expensive, but your dog is an omnivore, and you may fail to meet their dietary needs if you don’t do your research.

Unless absolutely vital, you should avoid grain-free food, which has been linked to heart disease in dogs over time.

Grooming

The Komondor’s grooming needs can be a little complex. They don’t need brushing, per se, but they do need coat maintenance. The best thing to do, aside from research, is to take them to a groomer frequently to keep up with their coat.

Make sure you clean their ears and teeth regularly too. Kodak…

The main last thing you need to remember is to take care of their nails. Trim or file their nails often (how often depends on the dog, but a good rule of thumb is when they start to tap on the floor). Some dogs hate this process, but that’s okay! Have patience and plenty of high-value treats on hand (chicken works great) to get them accustomed to the process.
