Up to the day the komondor puppy didn’t receive all vaccinations, 12-15 weeks age, we suggest not to bring it into company of dog. The puppy has to be socialized at home, we have to be engaged a lot, it has to get know with the family and the other personos who belongs to the family. If there are, also the animals. If we have a puppy komondor and he is a single dog, it worse to give him a gnawable toy, being busy himself with them, but we can be convinced, he will discover all holes of our garden and he try to destroy it sooner or later. After the vacccinations it is to allow to walk also in exeternal territories or to be in company.
The younger he gets know with the noises, sounds, strange smells, strangers the more stabil he will be later. The komondor is instinctly a suspicious race, it doesn’t mean he will bit everybody, who would like to enter in our house, rather that means he doesn’t allow top et himself and we don’t have to expect such a big familiarity, particularly in case, we expect him to protect our family and our goods. The komondor behaves in front of the family, her members and especially with the children very meekly, but we have tol et him know, who is the boss at home.
The good komondor is a courageous, hard characterized dog, we have to care him accordingly this fact to be sure in his role in the pack. If we have questions regarding his education let ask an expert. (either a breeder or the rescue) Be careful, the most dogschool isn’t familiar neither with the komondor nor with the shepherd dogs. The shepherd require a different education as the other races. The shepherd dogs require an other type of education s the other races. Don’t allow to train our dog by clicking. This kind of training uses the instinct for prey, which not at all exisst in a good shepherd dog. Therefore this training damages only our dog. The same situation is in the schools, where the goal the round up is. The round up is a series of behavior based on the instinct for prey, which is not characterizing a good komondor.
The loyalty to the owner and his intelligence allow him to learn quickly. But don’t forget a dog of 20-25 kg is better to motivate to learn anything ( for example travelling, spring into the car.etc).The owner can refuse walking with his komondor ( of any kind of reasons or because of misapprehension), but for every dog is important to get know with other dogs, with new and exciting smells, to contact with people. 1-2 walks is suggested also for us. 😉
Hold in kennel has advantages and disadvantages. Advantage is, that the lasy owner needn’t spend more time with the traning of his dog, only he closes the dog in the situation which seems to be difficult to manage. A dog won’t be abetter watchdog, when he is separated from strangers, as this fact is approved by a few practical examples. The good komondor behaves neutral, eventually friendly against stranger in the presence of his owner. In the lackof the presence of the owner protects the house courageously the goods of the family against the intruders. The intruder can be a not closed member of the family, and hasn’t got direct contact to the dog. SO we can’t expect that he let enter the traktor driver working for years to the family to the territory of our farm without the presence of the owner. The good komondor doesn’t work so.
To manage it well, must begin the training of the puppy as early is possible. The komondor feels excellent who is favorized by us and who not.In the interest of these we have to teach the following habit; when the bell ring sor somebody knocks, the dogs are running soon to the door( or before) Step ahead and movement of arm send them 3-4 steps back and open the door when they are calm.
In case they are moving to the door against our order, then let step to them and repaet the order. When they are calm, we can open the door. Of course we have tol et know with every fguests, that our dog(s) refuse an over-familiar behavior ( they don’t like the caress or pomelling of strangers) therefore it is useful to avoid these approaches.
