    Default New to dog forum

    Hi Everyone!

    I have only just joined dogforum as I am an huge dog lover. I have two male babies, Duke a 7month old Hungarian Puli & Buster a 2yo Staffy both who are extremely loving and spoilt.

    I was also looking into dog sports to do with them and found TREIBBALL which looks extremely fun! Does anyone have any info on this new sport and does anyone know of any groups in Perth, WA that run this sport?

    Would love to hear from any fellow dog lover

    Welcome to the forum Chloe! It is mandatory of all new members to post up photos of their lovely pooches!

    I've never heard of a Hungarian Puli before though!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I've tried adding a few photos of my babies but soome of them wouldn't upload. I do have a few photos of them on my profile now though.

    Hungarian Pulik or just a "Puli" is a medium sized stocky dog that grow dreadlocks or "cords" but they only start to form around 9-12months of age so at this stage he is just a big ball of fluff and cuddles I know of 3 breeders in Australia which is where I found Duke. They are uncommon in Australia which is one reason why I wanted one. I did a lot of research before I bought him as I'm actually allergic to dogs and they are known to be hypoallergenic. There is a bit of info on them and a number of images on google if you would like to know more about the breed I will try to upload more photos of them though

    Thanks for the welcome

    Hi Bowden! Welcome to the forum.

    My dog is a mini poodle cross. When she was a young pup I had her sitting in the trolley in Pet Barn one day as I browsed and I was approached by a young couple with parents in tow who wanted to know what breed she was. It turned out that the young couple had bought a Puli, but on seeing Misha the parents said 'she's gorgeous and this is what you could have bought rather than your Puli pup'!!!!
    I wasn't sure if they meant that my pup had a better temperament, or that they could have had a dog with dreadlocks for cheaper than they'd paid for the Puli!!

    Hope you can work out how to post some pics of your dogs!

    Hi 'bowden92' and your two pups - to the forum !

    Until your photos turn up - maybe this might allow people on the forum to see what they look like : puli dog at agility - Google Search

    They are awesome pups - I saw photos of them a while ago and did some reading up about them !

    Can't wait for your photos of both your pups to come through on the forum !

    welcome bowden92

    Sometimes links to photos on other websites don't come up here until you've got a few posts up (not sure if it's 10 or 100). But you can create a photo album connected to your profile and link those with the img tag code provided.

    I like to think of the puli as a "mop" dog and also a more predictable kind of dog than a random poodle cross.

    I think someone in here started a thread on treiball.
    http://www.dogforum.com.au/dog-train...ink-sport.html

    It was Bernie. There's some links in there to youtube on how to train it and then various comments and suggestions for various problems.

    Welcome. I also read about treiball. I bought cheap basketball from K Mart and Maggie is now very good at moving it around. I came across several people who found their dog destroyed the blow up ones before learning anything!

    I'm trying to upload a pic of each but not sure if it'll work. I wouldn't trade either of them for the world! Pulik are sometimes refered to as the clowns of the dog world and Puli owners say that their dogs act like puppies all their lives. Being a Puli owner myself I would believe this haha. My mum has a poodle and I was considering a poodle but I wanted an unusual and uncommon breed and Puli are said to be a bit more protective of their owners and reserved with strangers. He is weary of strangers and when protecting the house he's always alert but likes to have Buster there to back him up. We think it's hilarious that he will run inside and bark at Buster as in saying "Come on!!" and will only run to the front with Buster. It's so cute.

    Buster on the other hand is the biggest sook ever! I don't understand how anyone expects Staffies to be guard dogs. He greets anyone who comes near the fance with a big lick on their legs or hands or face and prefers sleeping on your lap than clowning around. He will sit next to me on the couch with his head on my lap and watch Duke pick a ball up and throw it out front of himself and chase it again.

    Yes, my dogs are spoilt but they are my children and I love them to death!

    Anyone who sees Duke gets a bit confused at which end is which and often call him a mop or sheep haha to me he's my big ball of cuddles and fur. I would recommend both breeds to anyone!
