The Puli makes an excellent house dog despite his difficult coat which is a distinctive feature of this breed. He is a compact active dog of sturdy appearance, muscular and wiry with fine bone. He has a very quick step. The corded coat, consisting of top and undercoat, is separated into tight cords when young. It is surprisingly easily kept after the cords are 'set' as they do not wash out. Washing is something that must be done often and the breed is often seen with 'bunches' tied up at the loin to help keep the cords clean. Drying can be a problem.
