About Puli

Country of Origin, History of Pulis

The Puli is a happy dog that is good with families. Unless they are raised with children they will probably not get along with children.

They are very smart and easy to train and make good obedience and agility dogs. Pulik (plural for Puli) do not necessarily need a yard as long as they get enough exercise.

Around six months the Puli begins to get its corded coat. The outer coat and undercoat start to mingle together and mat. The mats need to be separated by hand on a regular basis, torn from the tip all the way to the skin by hand. They should not be thinner than a pencil. The coat is easy to take care of as long as it is kept separated on a regular basis.

Puli Personality Traits

Dog with lovers


Pulis are intelligent and active dogs. They need obedience training from an early age.

Are they suited to homes with kids?

Cozy and very friendly especially towards children, they are sensitive and prone to resentment.

Living Conditions

Puli can live indoors as long as they get enough exercise. With proper exercise, they can live in the city. Ideally, houses with a garden are best for them.

Puli Activity Level

Pulis need exercises like running, running with a biker, hiking, jogging and field work. Just a walk around the corner is not enough for them.


The Puli should be bathed regularly, but drying is another story. It will take a long time to dry a Puli – around two hours with a dryer, and about two days without a dryer.

Regular care should be taken to clean out ears and eyes.
