The Puli is the best known of the unique herding dogs of Hungary. He has been a part of the Hungarian shepherds for more than a thousand years. They were bred to be their sole companion and workmate during the long days and months of isolation on the grazing lands of the vast Hungarian Plain. The breed unusually thick corded coat helps it withstand the extremes of weather.

Grooming- The Puli's coat will naturally develop cords and although the dog does not require brushing they still need to be groomed. The puppies coat begins to cord around nine months with the most intensive grooming period from nine to twenty-four months. The coat must be worked regularly, using your fingers to separate developing cords. The assistance of the breeder is recommended at this time. In a heavily corded dog it may take up to an hour to wash and up to six hours to dry with a blow dryer. For easy maintenance a non show dog's coat could be trimmed to four inches in length.

Exercise- Daily exercise needed.

Health- Robust breed with few genetic diseases. All breeding stock should be hip x-rayed and eye tested.
