KOMODOR and PULI Dog
Even when the Komodor is twice as big as the Puli, they both have many things in common: they proceed from Hungary; they are used to conduct the flocks and have a very strange and spectacular coat that has given them the nickname of "walking doormats". Both of them have very deep-rooted shepherd instincts that sometimes need to be controlled. Dog Toys
Their braided coat is their main attraction, but also their main inconvenient since it can take three years to grow. The large locks of hair get compressed, turning into some kind of long strips of compact felt.
If you don't take proper care of the coat in order to get the braids with a good aspect, you may have no way to solve it later. They are resolute, self-willing and kind of territorial. They need to exercise a lot. The Puli is lighter and more agile than the Komodor and this last one is so strong and imposing that it is mandatory to train it and socialize it from a very young age to be able to control it.

The Komodor's tail is slightly raised on the tip and can be distinguished from the rear quarters; the Puli's is raised forming and tight curl when the dog is alert. The Komodor's feet are bigger than the Puli's. Both have straight backs and kidney slightly leaning.
