The second release in a hungarian shepherd and hunting dogs series. The existence of the Komondor breed in the Carpathian Basin stems from the early Hungarians’ settlement of that region. With their nomadic lifestyle, dogs played a crucial role in guarding their livestock. The main job of the Komondor was to guard territory against humans and wild predators. They were highly valued by herders and shepherds for their imposing appearance and their brave, stalwart behaviour. As adults, they go into “energy-saving mode”, moving and barking little, but if necessary they will serve their masters with unflinching bravery. From the mid-20th century, after animals began to be kept indoors, their scope of work gradually declined and they were used as guard dogs for businesses and industrial buildings. In terms of their character, almost nothing has changed over the millennia. Nowadays, aside from breeders, they are mainly kept for show and out of respect for tradition at Hungary’s National Parks, where the natural environment has changed over time. With the re-appearance of predators (wolves, jackals, lynx), their role may change substantially again. The komondor breed has spread far and wide, and these dogs are faithful human companions around the world.
