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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Annual cost of owning a Puli puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Pulis true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I have Puli puppies for sale! See My Profile
We breed a champion line of Hungarian Pulik. Pulik is the plural form for Puli. These dogs are highly intelligent, athletic, affectionate, loving, full of energy, easy to train and they love to be a part of a family, always willing to play with children. They are suspicious of strangers and therefore make a great watchdog for you and your family. You can keep their hair combed out or make it corded for show. We are located in Lawton Michigan and have the litters in our home and not in kennels. All of our puppies are "Crate" trained which makes their trips to the vet or shows just an everyday activity. We do not have any "kennel" type arrangements with our dogs. We use the "invisible fence" system in our yard so that our dogs can run and enjoy the great outdoors. All of our puppies will be protected by using the American Veterinary Identification Devices. We encourage visitors to come and meet our Puli's. We have Puli's at various ages & cord development. A great way to Meet & Greet the breed. Spend some quality puli time with a Prestige Puli.

My Puli girl Meecha is losing her cords, seems to be going back to baby hair, she is 4.5yrs. Any help would be appreciated.

It may be time to take Meecha to the vet and then to a qualified groomer that you trust. If she is losing her cords and going back to that soft, plush baby hair; it could be a sign of an allergy or other under-lying problem.

What is a Puli like at 6-7 months old? I'm interested in buying an older puppy. If the puppy has bad habits, would it be hard to correct with training and practice?



Puppies go through A LOT in the first several months the owner has their puppy. The bonding phase at 9 - 11 weeks old, the first fear stage at 11 - 12 weeks old and then the second fear stage at 4 - 4 1/2 months old. All three of those stages GREATLY effect how a puppy will turn out. Including how the puppy will react to socialization, new situations, etc. It is nice getting an older puppy because you do not have to do the house-training or anything like that, but there are draw-backs. Learned bad habits can be fixed with training and practice, but bad habits that are a part of the pup early, early on and not addressed are much harder to work with. So if you get an older pup, make sure you do a week of fostering to see if the pup works with your family.


I bought my Puli puppy at around 4-5 months old. An older puppy is much easier to take care of. They don't have to go to the bathroom as often. They also learned a lot of manners from the parents. You still need to give the puppy time to adjust and concentrate on training. But I had no issue with an older puppy.

Anonymous asked:
Is the Puli breed hypoallergenic? 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 are 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.


All dogs are individual. My Puli does well with kids more so than with an adult. But they are not overly loving or a people pleaser type of dog breed. A Puli would sit by his person and relax rather than run off to play with the kid or other dogs. If you want a breed that is a people pleaser and great with kids then I suggest the Rough Collie and Newfoundland. They would act like a nanny to the kids especially the female dogs. They are both very gentle and loving and also want to please you and your family.

My Puli is 1-year-old and I have been brushing her since she was a puppy. I did not want her corded, however now I do. She was in the hospital for 2 weeks and is now matted. If I shave her will she regrow her cords? I really do hope so. Thanks Gerrie

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