Breed Group: Herding Dogs
Pulik (plural) are loyal, bright dogs that need early obedience training.
Vigorous, active, and alert, the puli is a good home guardian and companion
dog but usually does not make a good pet for children.
They get along with other animals if raised with them, but will probably
attempt to herd them. Pulik may bark at strangers. They can live in the
city as long as they get enough exercise.
The dense, profuse, corded coat of the puli is weather-resistant. The
long outercoat is wiry and wavy or curly; the undercoat is soft, woolly,
and dense. The outer, wiry hairs connect with the woolly undercoat hairs
to form long cords.
Coat color is rusty black, black, all shades of gray, or white.
Grooming & Exercise Needs
Pulik require an enormous amount of care. If trimmed short, they must
be brushed every other day or severe matting will occur. If left long,
cords must be separated by hand occasionally and rinsed well when shampooed.
Pulik require a lot of exercise or they may develop behavior problems.
The puli was developed in Hungary over a thousand years ago for sheepherding.
The puli is not suitable for inexperienced owners.
Breed-related health concerns include hip dysplasia.
