These dogs are easily recognised by their trademark – their coats! The Puli's coats are covered in long cords (that look an awful lot like dreadlocks). The cords cover the entire body, some even reaching the ground in length, and making it pretty difficult to tell which way is what. A playful breed that trots along, its fine bones protected by sturdy muscle. The Hungarian Puli is a lively mop of fun.
Pulis are not usually fussy eaters, nor do they wolf down large portions at a time. It is best to feed your dog two meals a day, rather than leaving food out.
Just like everyone else Pulis have an awkward adolescent phase and their distinctive coats won't fully develop until they are at least three years old. If you're not a fan of the corded look the coat can be brushed out, however if you are hoping to compete in dog shows know that they only accept Puli's with corded coats. The advantage of this type of coat is that Pulis do not shed, although dirt and small objects can be caught in the hairs and will need to be untangled. A Puli's coat can take days to dry thoroughly so it's very important to only wash this breed in the summer.
