Overview
The Puli, also known as the Pulik crossed the plains into Hungary with the Magyards a few thousand years ago when they were commonly used as sheep dogs. The Puli was used mainly for driving and herding flocks, while the larger Hungarian breed, the Komondor, was used as a guardian for flocks. Many shepherds preferred the Puli, as they stood out easier among the flock, while the Komondor was used to blend in.
Character
The Puli surprisingly makes a very good watchdog, as they are very protective of their master and territory. This is a very intelligent breed making him fairly easy to train. This breed does very well in obedience and agility and is a favorite in the show ring. His light and agile movement give this breed an advantage when it comes to guarding flocks of sheep.
Temperament
Happy, cheerful, and devoted, this dog does very well in a home environment, however is not recommended for a home with small children. The Puli can do well with other animals if they are properly socialized at puppyhood, but should not be trusted around smaller and more passive animals. If children are taught how to handle a dog properly, this breed can do well providing the children do not pester or pull on the long cords of hair.
Care
The Puli has a strange and unique coat making grooming for this breed a learned technique for the inexperienced. Professional grooming in the beginning should be required. After bathing, drying of the coat can be a task. Blow-drying with cold air works best. Brushing is not required, as the Puli should always have naturally formed cords.
Coat
The Puli has a very unique coat. The coat is fairly weather resistant and is dense and profuse. The outer coat should be wavy or curly, while the undercoat is soft and wooly. In an adult Puli, the coat should form cords naturally and never be man made. The coat should never be clipped, always natural.
Training
Pulis are very intelligent and are eager to please making them fairly easy to train. With a firm and consistent hand, this breed can do amazingly well in obedience and agility. Obedience classes for this breed are recommended at an early age, however training can be taken upon the owner if they are experienced.
Activity
The Puli should have regular exercise, as they love to play and roam free, however should always be in a fenced in yard. An average sized yard works best for this energetic breed. They love to jog with their owners, and does very well running along side a bike. The Puli enjoys hikes, however the coat should be protected.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Puli puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Is the Puli breed Hypo-allergenic? We have grandkids that visit. Could the dog adapt to kids? All but one kid is over 6.

Yes, the Puli is considered a hypoallergenic breed of dog. The Puli is a herding breed of dog that enjoys being a companion animal. So if the dog is raised with kids and the children as respectful of the puppy/dog's space, the dog should do just fine. Please note that all interactions between children 10 and under with a dog should be supervised at all times.

pulis were bred to have coats like this, so i don't see why it wouldn't grow out back how it should.

My question is this: Due to its apparently homeless lifestyle, it's cords are a mess. Dirt, sticks, etc.... Can I shave her, and if I do, will the cords regrow? Also, will the shaving cause emotional damage to her?

Shave her only if necessary! It takes time and a lot of dog food to replenish the Puli coat but you can keep the under coat and work with it. What I suggest is that you cut her coat only with scissors and leave the nubs of the unkept dreads. They will grow longer faster but you should use your fingers just pull and slenderize them by separating them with a tug. Otherwise as you feel they need to be split cut into with scissors at a vertical angle, leaving a thinner dread lock in place of a matted mess.

You betcha. I keep my Puli clipped as neither of us can bear his cords. He gets a #2 buzz cut in the hot of summer, and I trim him by hand to about 1/2" one to two times a year. He doesn't love it, but he endures like a trooper.

At 5 years its necessary to give Puli's a scissor cut only the ends of the dreads in layers so that their dreads bounce when they walk or run. It fans them in the summer. The layers should be cut making the shortest with the dreads linked to the spine. Allow the second row to be 3 inches longer, the forth 5in longer. Try to make your rows parallel to each other running from head to tail.

I have worked out of the house for almost two years and have a roommate that owns a small dog. While my Puli is tolerant of other animals, much like strangers, she isn't to into other dogs. With that said, she does spend some time during the day with the other dog. I am now moving and she will be solo for ten hours a day, with the exception of fifteen minutes to walk in the middle. She seems content alone, but then again, I'm not there so... Trying to decide if I need to look into another dog as a companian, Any ideas? Thanks

Puli's don't shed but they will pull their dreads out if they have one flee! They like to be bathed and pampered, particularly the females.

You can trim the hair around your Puli's face, but not around eyes to keep them visible. Pulis actually have a great eyesight, I have no idea how, but they do. So don't worry about that, if you want to trim around the face just so that it doesn't get into his food, etc, that's fine.

Multiple vets have strongly encouraged me to keep my Puli's hair around their eyes trimmed. Something about the Puli coat in the eyes that causes abrasion and speeds cataracts. Seems reasonable, so I do my best to stay on top of it.

If you do you might just cause eye problems. The Puli's do rub them and irritate them if the face is shaved. Cut the ends only with a scissors

We have bred and shown over 50 Puli. Their cords start forming as the denser undercoat of an adult grows. This generally happens beyween 12 and 16 months of age.

You have to tie the Puli's hair up on the sides for girls and get a special cut for boy if you want them to not smell like urine. I would also suggest trimming the hairs around the butt.

My Puli loves to be outside no matter what the tempature is. I have read the the hair works as a natural heating and cooling system. The coat takes 5 years to fully grow so if you want the Rasta look shaving him down seasonally is not an option.

DON"T SHAVE YOUR PULI. You willjust throw her hairs growth curve back. My Puli lived in Milwaukee Wisconsin for part of her life and is now in South Florida. No worries. Just use common sense. Water when you take them out. Shade after a while. Their coat is amazing. I can feel under her coat fifteen minutes after leaving the house and can still feel the cold a/c from the house.

The Puli's dreds happen naturally around 9 months. You have to split the cords to make them well organized and consistant size. Takes alot of time at first... but its well worth it.
