Best known for his long, corded coat resembling dreadlocks, the Puli is a hardworking herding dog and family companion. There are TOP 10 interesting facts about Puli. SUBSCRIBE NOW: https://goo.gl/bTqgiS Web - http://www.rocadog.com/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/rocadogcom Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/rocadog/ 1) Herding History The Puli is an expert herding dog — he's had more than 1,000 years of practice. When the Magyar tribes first settled in Hungary, they brought their herding dogs with them. They had large herding dogs that resembled today's Kuvasz, and smaller dogs that resembled today's Puli. Others believe the Puli derived some 2,000 years ago from Tibetan Terrier stock. Pulik have been working as sheepherders in Hungary ever since the Magyars first settled there. 2) Coat Very few other breeds have a coat like the Puli's. The Puli's coat has two layers that naturally tangle together and form into woolly cords. This coat protects the Puli from harsh weather and potential predators. Some Puli owners choose to brush their dogs so that the two coats stay separated, and the cords do not form. 3) Appearance The height of the female Puli ranges from 36 cm to 42 cm, and the height of the male Puli ranges from 39 cm to 45 cm. The Hungarian Puli's strands of fur grow as it grows in height. Interestingly, shedding stops once the dog stops growing. This dog is very strong and runs like the wind. It has muscular legs and also has a bit of a wild streak. The Hungarian Puli needs to exercise daily and needs wide open spaces to run freely. 4) Temperament The Hungarian Puli has a calm and steady temperament, but all hell breaks loose when this dog is provoked. This breed should be trained very early, and they are ready to be trained when they are just four-months-old. They are strong and aggressive by nature because they are guard dogs, so they must be taught how to behave. Bad behavior should also be corrected as soon as it appears. 5) Color Pulik can be black, gray, or white. Black Pulik were put to work herding the sheep, because sheep are more inclined to obey a dark-colored dog than a light-colored one. Shepherds could also more easily spot the black Pulik among the sheep. Meanwhile, the white or gray Pulik served as nighttime guards, protecting the flocks or herds against robbers and wild animals. 6) Pulik Formally, the plural of Puli is not Puli's, but Pulik. Both are widely used and grammatically correct, but Pulik is preferred by most Puli enthusiasts and certainly by any Puli purist. 7) Around Others The Puli is an intelligent and a cheerful dog. It is excellent with other dogs and other pets also. However, caution is advised with children as children can become aggressive which the dog may not like. It is reserved with strangers, although not very aggressive. It is fiercely loyal and protect the owner at the slightly pretext of threat. 8) Agility Expert You might think all those cords make it difficult for a Puli to move around, but Pulik actually excel at agility competitions. Pulik have to be able to run fast and make sharp turns in order to herd sheep. They can easily navigate agility courses, and they are very trainable dogs because they are so eager to please their masters. 9) Grooming This dog's coat needs extra attention because it is corded. As the puppy grows, the cords need to be separated so that they don't get intertwined into a huge knot. Once the cords touch the ground, it needs to be trimmed to prevent the Puli from tripping on its own hair. Their nails also need to be regularly trimmed. 10) Health The Puli does not have any particular genetic disorders. However, it is prone to hip dysplasia and allergies of the eye.

Great video, but I would like to disagree, with the Health part. Just as any dog, who comes from a breeder, Pulis get health issues too. For a perfect appearance these lovely dogs pay with their health too. Try to rescue a Puli, rather than buying one from a breeder.

I definitely agree with you on the rescueing! I would always prefer adopting over buying a dog

+Laura Barber Is your dog a male or female? The males smells, or you need to castrate him :( The healthy Puli has a good typical smell. When your dogs live inside the house, then you need to feed them with good food Royal Canin etc, not just a common dog food! The good food is colorless, I mean it has only one color. The colored foods are extremely smelly (I also have a Ragdoll, inside the house and when I bought for her some colored food, brrr... she smelled like a drain pipe. Canned meat is the worst food for any animal (or buy it only premium), like we also hate canned meat don't we? If your dogs live outside, and you have normal sized garden, then you can feed them sometimes with cooked chicken back or something !WITHOUT TUBULAR BONES!, or some cooked cattle marrowbone. They love the cooked rice as well, and you can feed them weekly a spoon of honey for their hair care. (not a joke!) But which goes in, it comes out somewhere, and sometimes - because puli has long corded coats, and sometimes they get stomach cramps - the muck get stuck... so you need to maintain their back, this is a 4 handed job, so you need another person to help you. And at last, the Puli is an outside dog, hundreds of years they lived outside the herd along with the shepherd, they don't need bathing (1-2 per year), do not cut their coats, because the cords maintain their body temperature even at hot summer! If you have some more question, I reply it ASAP. Sorry for my bad English.
