About the Pumi
Welcome to the Pumi world! On this page we tell you something about its origns, its history in the US, and what it’s like to live with a Pumi.
The Pumi is an active dog, combining the biddability and intelligence of the herding dog along with the alertness and activity of a terrier. Because they are intelligent, they need daily work to do, whether it’s herding, obedience, flyball, jogging, or chasing tennis balls. They do not shed, but must be combed every 2 weeks, and groomed approximately every 3 months. Some Pumis are very cuddly, and others prefer to lay at your feet.
They are not a breed for every family. If you have an active family with or without children, and have a commitment to do daily activities with your dog, such as frisbee or tennis ball throwing, jogging, or playing at a park, then the Pumi may be right for you.
