Exercise Needs

Due to its working nature, the Mudi requires daily exercise consisting of long walks, jogs, romps or play sessions. This breed loves to run in a fenced yard.

Grooming Needs

No special grooming requirements.


Obedient, pleasant and playful, this breed is equally courageous, protective and noisy. The Mudi has tendency to become a "one-person" dog, but will live peacefully with the rest of the family. The breed adapts well to other pets easily if raised with them from a young age. This breed is highly intelligent and is often compared to the Border Collie in its ability and willingness to be trained. Mudis are usually wary of strangers, but warm up quickly when they realize the visitor means no harm."

Compatibility with Kids

Good with children.


The Mudi is extremely rare, even in its home country of Hungary. It was originally used for herding, guarding flocks and hunting wild boar. It is suspected the breed is so rare because herdsmen have preferred the Komondor and Puli as working dogs, although the Mudi is just as capable.
