‼️NOTIFICATION OF CANCELLATION OF CLUB SHOW & POSTPONEMENT OF 2020 AGM ‼️
In the interest of the health issues/risks arising from the Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic, the Hungarian Puli Club of GB Committee have taken the unanimous decision to relunctantly cancel the forthcoming Championship show and postpone the Annual General Meeting due to be held on Sunday 4th October 2020. It is hoped that we will be able to re-arrange the show in tandem with the 2021 Championship show.
With regard to the Annual General Meeting and with the Kennel Club permission, it is anticipated we will hold the Annual General Meeting in 2021 alongside the Championship shows.
Under the circumstances, we trust everyone will understand the action we have taken.
As the UK is still in Lockdown, things are slowly returning to the new normal. However, if the worst should happen and you’re admitted to hospital, have you thought about who’d look after your dog(s) if, for whatever reason, there’s nobody else at home? With that rather depressing thought in mind, the committee, mostly Hannah, have produced an “Emergency Dog Information Form”. You can fill in this form with information such as your dog’s name, breed, age, vet details, likes/dislikes etc.
This would be vital information for anyone asked to look after your dog(s) whilst you’re incapacitated for any reason, and not just the Covid-19 virus. We recommend that you download the form and fill it in, one form for each dog, and leave it easily accessible if you are in the unfortunate position that someone needs to collect your dog(s).
Finally, keep looking after yourselves and those wonderful Pulis. Try to stay sane and above all stay safe.
The club rules have been updated please review them on the link below:

We are in the process of updating our Puli Adoption Waiting List and were wondering if anyone would be interested in being on the list.
Whilst we don’t have any Pulis looking for a new home at the moment, it is always helpful to know that there are homes out there willing to adopt should the situation arise.
If you are interested, and are willing to wait, could you please complete the “Welfare form – Application to go on Adoption list 2019” which can be found by following the link below:

PAW aims to make sure that puppies live healthy, happy lives with suitable owners by spreading the ‘be puppy aware’ message.
Being puppy aware involves making sure you know which dog and breed is right for your lifestyle so that you can care for it for life, and making sure you can separate responsible breeders from puppy farmers. Every year the Kennel Club holds a Puppy Awareness Week (PAW) to spread this message.
STOP puppy farming
The cost of sickly puppies soars when puppies are bought from disreputable sources. Puppies from puppy farms are bred with no regard for their health and well-being and are kept in appalling, unsanitary conditions.
Research carried out by the Kennel Club shows that a shocking:
- 1 in 10 people bought a ‘mail order pup’ from the internet online or from a newspaper advert, without seeing it first.*
- Almost half of dog owners are spending more on vets’ fees than they had accounted for – more than one in four people (27 percent) say that they suspect that their puppy came from a cruel puppy farm.*
- 1 in 5 pups bought online without the pup being seen first end up with gastro-intestinal problems and 15 percent with the potentially deadly parvovirus.*
- Many people are unknowingly sold pups smuggled into the UK from puppy farms abroad.*
Make sure that you don’t buy from a puppy farmer, or from an ill-informed and unknowledgeable breeder, who has not taken all of the steps to give your puppy the best chance in life. The Kennel Club recommends that ‘ABS is Best’ and always advises people to go to a Kennel Club Assured Breeder. The Kennel Club has United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS) accreditation to certify breeders on the scheme and it is the only one in the UK that sets standards for and inspects dog breeders. You can find out more about Kennel Club Assured Breeders here.
Do’s and don’ts of buying a puppy
Kennel Club research has shown a shocking number of people still buying puppies from disreputable sources: one in three revealed their puppies were sourced on internet sites, through social media, in pet shops and newspapers advertisements – all sources popularly used by puppy farmers.
Finding the right breed
There are 217 breeds of dog, and many crossbreeds, that have very different needs. Pedigree dogs are bred to have predictable traits and characteristics and by doing research people can easily find the dog that is the best fit for them.

What to expect when buying a puppy
TV Vet Marc Abraham reveals some of the many health and welfare problems that you could be confronted with if buying a puppy from a source often used by puppy farmers. He meets Irish terrier breeder, Candace Bugden, to find out what to expect when buying a puppy from a responsible breeder, and why getting a puppy from a Kennel Club Assured Breeder is always the best option.
We are pleased to announce we have a new online shop. There are many different Puli items for sale, some at a reduced price to make way for new stock.
