More details about the Mudi

Mudi: Origins and history

The Mudi originates from Hungary. It’s believed they’ve existed since the 1800s, though the first official ‘breed’ was listed in 1936. They’re relatively rare and were at threat of extinction some years ago, but have been repopulated by a dedicated group of breeders.

FCI classification of the Mudi

  • Group 1 - Sheepdogs and Cattledogs (except Swiss Cattledogs)

  • Section 1 : Sheepdogs

Training a Mudi

The Mudi is eager to please and enjoys taking on jobs and completing tasks - yep, they love training! With plenty of rewards and positive reinforcement, this breed is easily trainable. However, it’s essential to start young as once they’re older and more independent, they could become a little stubborn.

Mudi: Purchase price

They’re pretty hard to come across in the UK. We do not have enough data to set an average price, but you can expect to pay upwards of £1000 for a well-bred dog. Looking after a dog of this size typically costs between £50 to £80 a month, including food, medical/insurance, and incidental expenses.
