If you clip down a Komondor then they shed their double coat twice a year like any other. The cords themselves ARE the shed out coat so they do shed but it does leave the dog much if at all...it simply becomes part of the cording. They are high maintenence just a like a Poodle, which would require a groom every so many weeks....but Poodles can also be kept corded.

That is cool. I love seeing St. Poobles work they arent my type of dog by any means but they are awesome athletes. But they can show them like that?

Fordraceing Man, as already been said by darkchild, the BRT is guardy, but highley energetic. Although they are low shedders, they do require grooming because they can grow an impressive coat. I recommend a professional groom every couple of months which would keep your shedding very minimal and to prevent matting. They do require a quick brushing on a daily basis aswell. The guarding instinct comes natural to them, so they require an experienced hand. I know 2 families with them and they are wonderful dogs. They are great with their families including children, however tey can be energetic for small children. If grooming and energy are not something that you would be interested in I would not recommend one for you.

I cant think of any guardian breed that doesnt require grooming or that doesnt shed alot.
