ABOUT THE MCA
The Mudi is a rare herding breed from Hungary where it is still favored by shepherds to work sheep and
cattle herds. In the United States the breed is extremely rare with a small number of fanciers. The Mudi is
a breed that still has strong herding instinct. We believe that while it is important to maintain the Mudi’s
natural herding abilities, the breed is also very versatile making it a contender in many active dog sports.
Although most Mudi certainly show the ability to perform as a herding dog, we realize not all owners have
the opportunity in which to foster this herding instinct, nor the means in which to expose their dog to
sheep or cattle. We certainly do encourage any Mudi owner to have a simple herding instinct test done with
their dog. Some may find it will open new doors of opportunity for themselves and their Mudi. Others may
wish to target a sport like Agility or Flyball in which to unleash their Mudi’s hidden talents.
What the Members are saying:
"I belong to a National Club because I want the Mudi to succeed - not just my Mudi - the MUDI. I want to be
a part of a club that looks for answers to health problems, that pushes for better conditions for dogs,
works to help junior fanciers with their dogs, that makes the members stand by their puppies and looks
out for the wonderful breed I own. I want members to take pride in their dogs and if they don't - I want
the parent club to ask that they do."
