Overview
Originating in Wales, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is similar to the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. However, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is considered to be the older of the two varieties. Bred to drive cattle, guard the farm, and hunt vermin, this breed was also an integral part of the family. This breed is relatively rare but is continuously and consistently gaining public recognition.
Character
A small yet hardy breed, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has a fox-like face and is long and low in build. They are extremely versatile in both thought and action. They possess strength, endurance, and speed. A handsome and powerful breed, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is also dependable, trustworthy, loyal, and affectionate.
Temperament
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi has an endearing and delightful personality. This breed is highly intelligent, sensible, alert, and courageous. They thrive on human companionship and are deeply devoted to their family. They are wary of strangers and will guard and protect their family and territory. This breed is best suited for a family with older considerate children. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi gets along well with non-canine pets and with other Corgis, but has a tendency to be aggressive with other dogs. Caution, care, and control must be used with this breed to keep them safe from harm when they are in defense mode. As members of the herding group they will attempt to perform this task with everyone and anything that moves.
Care
This breed requires minimal grooming. They should be brushed with a firm bristle brush on a regular basis. During their heavy shedding period they should be brushed and combed daily. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary using a mild shampoo. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is prone to such health problems as progressive retinal atrophy, glaucoma, cataracts, and back problems.
Coat
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a double coat breed. The outer coat is harsh, straight, water resistant, and of medium length. The under coat is dense and soft in texture. The hair is more profuse around the neck, the underside of the tail, and the backs of the legs. The coat comes in a variety of colors such as sable, red, brindle, black, blue merle, black and tan, and black and brindle. The coat also has white markings. The Cardigan is a constant shedder with heavy bi-annual shedding.
Training
Eager to please and very obedient, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi benefits from early socialization and basic obedience training. The crate training method is recommended for housetraining this breed. They excel in agility, herding trials, tracking, conformation, obedience, and love to learn and perform tricks. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is also used extensively as a therapy dog and in search and rescue.
Activity
This breed requires daily exercise such as a securely leashed walk, family play session, or a romp and run in a fenced yard. They are moderately active indoors. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi will do well in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, companionship, and stimulation.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

At what outside temperature (Winter) should I limit the amount of time my Corgi spends consecutively outdoors? He is very energetic and loves exercise/walks, etch. He has a well-insulated, custom-made doghouse on which floor I keep partways layered w/hay.

I would get booties for your dog and a jacket, and then couldn't see why your dog couldn't go outside anytime you are outside. As long as you watch the dog for any shivering/issues, then the dog should be fine.

No, they are not known as a patient breed of dog. But like all breeds, every dog is different.

We are having a very hard time potty training our Corgi. Is this common?

Corgi's are stubborn in certain areas and this might be the problem. Use of bribery is usually not advised but with a stubborn corgi you can use this effectivly. Try using the liver treats and lots of praise. You can also use a strong smelling oil such as peppermint or cedar to keep them from going potty in any area that is off limits. I have raised 4 corgis and I have found the females much easier to train mainly because they don't want want to hike their leg. Hope this helps!
