Komondor Dog Grooming Tools - Checklist

Komondor Dog Grooming Instruction - Bathing your Dog
Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Komondor dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • The Komondor has a unique, long, corded coat which resembles dreadlocks. The coat is the heaviest of all dog breeds and it is very long, measuring around 20-27cms in length. The coat doesn't shed except for when the Komondor's are puppies when their coats shed before their cords fully form. The coat must never be brushed or combed, however, it must be regularly bathed and washed. When the Komondor becomes an adult dog, it will be giant in size, many of the dogs measuring more than 30 inches tall! Therefore, if you do not have the space outside to sufficiently take care of your dog's bathing requirements, then a professional pet salon will be able to take care of this.

Komondor Dog Grooming Instruction - Bathing your Dog
Bathing your dog is very important for its health and hygiene. During bathing check your dog for lumps, bumps, parasites, fleas and skin irritations or allergies. Komondor Bathing instruction is as follows:

  • Wash your dog or puppy when they are dirty or smell!
  • Gather bathing equipment and place bathing tools and shampoo near to bathing area
  • Check the water temperature before you begin washing the cords
  • Gradually place the puppy in the bath - be aware that this may frighten your pet
  • Gently shampoo your pet - be careful of delicate areas such as eyes and ears
  • Rinse shampoo and towel dry
  • The Komondor can take around 2 and a half days for its cords to completely dry!

Komondor Dog Grooming Instruction - Trimming Nails
Some dogs do not need their nails trimmed as they are kept short by general activities. However, should your dog's nails become long then they should be trimmed. It is important to know exactly what you are doing, as cutting too deep into your Komondor dog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Komondor is too high.

  • Your vet can help initially by demonstrating how to trim your dog's nails and supervise your first attempt
  • Spend some time touching your dog's paws and gently squeezing the area around the nails in order to familiarize them with this sensation
  • Seek advice from your vet about the most appropriate nail clippers for your pet
