The hair of a Hungarian shepherd (Komondor) is admirable, and before that served as protection against bear and wolf teeth. These are heavy thick cords that feel like felt. Komondors successfully guarded herds of sheep and cattle from wolves. Previously, commander puppies were raised along with sheep, and when they grew up they even sheared them at the same time. They wash the Komondor solely for medical reasons, and then carefully dry it with a hairdryer.
The very first recognized Belgian Shepherd Dog was Malinois. It looks more like a German and a smooth-haired Dutch shepherd, often used by the police.
