The Puli was used mainly for driving and herding flocks, while the larger Hungarian breed, the Komondor, was used as a guardian for flocks.
An average-sized yard works best for this energetic breed. The Puli enjoys hikes, however, the coat should be protected.
With a firm and consistent hand, this breed can do amazingly well in obedience and agility.
The Puli has a strange and unique coat making grooming for this breed a learned technique for the inexperienced. In an adult Puli, the coat should form cords naturally and never be man-made.
