Alert, active, and intelligent, the Mudi (pronounced “moody”) is a highly trainable herding dog capable of performing almost any task well, including watchdog duties, hunting, performing in agility and obedience competitions, search and rescue, and more. Also known as the Hungarian Mudi, this breed originated in Hungary where it helped shepherds maintain their flocks, and it was often called the “driver dog.” Even today, Mudis are used in Hungary for their herding abilities and are known to help shepherds with flocks of up to 500 sheep. Even though Mudis have high exercise needs, they can also be calm family companions when they are properly stimulated, both physically and mentally. Train a Mudi with positive reinforcement and don’t rely on punishment or harsh rebukes. If you do, you’ll have a loyal, smart, and loving dog that will protect you and adore you for life.

Highlights

The Mudi shares much in common with the Pumi and Puli, two other Hungarian dog breeds, though the Mudi was designated as a separate breed in the 1930s.This breed is still quite rare with only a few thousand in existence. Most Mudis can still be found in Hungary, though some Mudis live in Finland and, rarely, other parts of the world.The American Kennel Club does not fully recognize the Mudi as an official breed, partially due to the rarity of these dogs. They do, however, include the Mudi in their Foundation Stock Service, which helps keep records of the breed’s lineage and allows them to compete in certain competitions.The plural form of Mudi in Hungarian is ‘Mudik.’ Some use this word instead of ‘Mudis’ even outside of the Hungarian language.Mudi coats come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, white, fawn, grey, or a marbled mix of black and grey.
