Questions about the Puli breed

The Puli is a special breed, because it is so different with its cord than what is known. Also the Puli is often reduced only to this special coat and the versatile, friendly and winning character of this Hungarian shepherd dog takes a back seat. Therefore we want to give them a more comprehensive view of the herding dog with these questions and answers.

In addition, we have noticed that there are a number of questions about the Puli breed dog that are asked again and again. We have added the menu item "Frequently Asked Questions" to our homepage to provide you with quick and comprehensive information. Perhaps your question is already included.

You can browse the questions and answers yourself or simply click on the category and select one of the questions about the Puli breed:

The first question is actually whether the Puli gets really wet so quickly. Because a light rain shower does not manage to penetrate to the skin. The decisive factor is the moisture absorbed, which, depending on the time and the factors described below, has an influence on how long the Puli has to dry. The coat of the pulis does.....

Sport / Recreation

The Puli is bred as a herding dog. That means he looks after the herds of sheep and cattle of the Hungarian shepherds. A hunting instinct is rather disturbing there, because it would distract the Puli from its work. During our hikes with the other Puli friends we often experienced situations where deer jumped over the path just in front..... Read More »

We have defined exactly in the German Puli Club how long breeding with a Puli is allowed in order to protect the bitch. The bitch must not be older than 8 years.
