After doing a lot of research on LGDs we settled on Komondors. The main reason was because we have had other breeds and had to put up with barking at night. Komondors are silent when they patrol and have an outstanding loyality to their "pack" which is every critter and family member on the property. Another breed trait that I like is that they do not wander. In my opinion there is nothing more worthless then a dog that wanders off after a Coyote or Fox that is near and leaves the place ungaurded.
Another breed trait is that they don't jump up on you. Ours will stand up on the fence and greet you until you go through the gate then it's paws off.
It is said of the Komondor that once you are a member of the pack that will always stand true. We got a pup and when we drove up to the breeder's place there were a couple of big males that raised their heads and gave a single "woof" and laid their heads back down. The wife looked at me funny and I told her "you have just been put on notice to be at your best behavior". As we walked around the males would move so that we could be seen just in case that they needed to intervene.
Well we got our pup and then decided to go back down the next weekend and pick up another pup and when we drove up all of the dogs came to greet us like we were long-lost kin. Every trait that I have read about has rang true with these dogs.
They are not quick on the draw to bite humans either. The old Hungarian breeders say that chances are a Komondor will allow an intruder to come onto your place, but they will not be allowed to leave. They have been known to knock an intruder down and then stand guard until they are found, be it tomorrow or in a day or two.
We run ours with goats, chickens and horses. Ours have had little training but do come from working parents. All that I have trained them on is basic obedience.
My back took me out of comission for nearly a year and I was not around the dogs very much. One day the wife comes in and informs me that we are going to clip the boys because of the mats and such. I'm thinking "yea, right" We got the boys on a lead and I proceded to use the big Sunbeam clippers on them. I figured that I was going to be in for a fight since they hadn't been messed with much but they just calmly stood there, even when I trimmed around their eyes and face.
I can't say enough good about the Komondors, if you can find them they are pricey but well worth it.
