Revered as cattle herders and guardians of the home, the Corgi's origins are obscured by folklore. This breed garnered popularity and notoriety due to long time fancier Queen Elizabeth II.
The Corgi is low-set, sturdily built, hardy, and strong. They are a breed of substance and stamina. Corgi's exhibit an expression of interest, intelligence, and vivaciousness.
The Corgi breed is loyal, devoted, alert, and playful. They are family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. If they become bored or lonely they will become destructive. The Corgi is a very vocal breed. They do best in a home with older, considerate children. They are wary and suspicious of strangers and will fearlessly protect their family, property, and territory. They do well with dogs and other household pets they have been raised with.
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when necessary. The Corgi breed is prone to such health issues as PRA, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, Von Willebrand's disease, and spinal problems. It is important to not overfeed.
The Corgi is a double coat breed. The outer coat is long, coarse, straight, and longer and thicker around the neck, chest, and on the shoulders. The weather-resistant under coat is thick, short, and of medium length.
Early socialization and obedience is recommended. Corgi's do not do well with repetitive training; sessions should be short and varied. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training should be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
The Corgi is suited for apartment or city living provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They enjoy securely leashed walks and family play sessions. They excel in agility, obedience, conformation, and as therapy dogs.

Annual cost of owning a Corgi puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Corgis true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

ljmartin asked:
Do Corgi's have eye health problems? Since they have long backs - are there issues with back problems also?

1 Comment


There are two types of Corgi's. The Penbroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Both breeds have similar life spans and the main cause of death are similar in both breeds, being cancer and old age. However, the Pembroke breed has shown a higher proportion of deaths attributed to either kidney failure or urethral obstruction. Both breeds can suffer from eye conditions such as progressive retinal atrophy and canine glaucoma. Other health issues both breeds can be known for are musculoskelatal issues such as arthritis and slipped disc's. Both breeds should have help getting on and off high surfaces such as furniture, or be given stairs or a step up to help keep health issues at bay.

How well do Pembroke Welsh Corgis do with special needs children? I have a 17 year old adopted son who has autism.

1 Comment


The level of autism your son has will depend on if the Pembroke Welsh Corgi will be able to adapt to the house hold or not. If your son has frequent aggressive moments where he lashes out and has hurt himself or someone before (of course not on purpose) then I would not suggest a dog of this breed or a puppy at all. However, if your son has a mild or moderate form of autism and does not have aggressive tendencies because of his condition; then this breed should do very well with your family. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is very loyal, loving, sweet and intuitive with its owner and family. They are also a bit stubborn, but of course make up for it with their well known "puppy-dog eyes". Getting your dog young so that he/she can be exposed to your sons average daily routine and behaviors is best so that the dog can know the signs of when to leave your son be, or when to ask for affection or attention.

Anonymous asked:
How do Corgi's do around chickens that have free range? Thanks



If the dog is raised around chickens as a puppy and has been trained to leave them be then the dog should do just fine. The Corgi is a natural farm dog that enjoys the puttering around of farm work.


Just remember...Corgis ARE herding dogs..they WILL herd almost anything, esp if it runs from them! But they won't hurt your birds if you train from the start that it's ok to herd, but not hurt. Supervise the herding activity at all times until your puppy matures and understands the rules. Should not be any problem. I watched a 20 lb female herd a 2000 Lb horse!

Anonymous asked:
We just had our new corgi puppy checked by our vet and he has giardia. It is curable because we caught it early. Do I have an obligation to tell the breeder, who in my opinion should already know because our vet said he got it from his mother. Should I put his info anywhere so others who buy pets from him know to get their pup checked as soon as they get it?

1 Comment


You do not have any obligation to tell the breeder of your puppy. However, as a breeder I would hope that if there was something wrong with one of my puppies my new puppy owners would tell me. As I have good relationships with my new puppy owners, I would feel there would be unsaid tension between you and I if you never told me. Sometimes Giardia does not show symptoms as quick in adult dogs as it does in puppies. So your breeder may simply not know. Please contact him and let him know so that he can have the rest of the litter checked out, and mamma dog as well. Also whatever other dogs he owns can be checked. You should ask for the contact information for the other puppy owners of your puppy's litter and contact them yourself to make sure they know. Posting it anywhere else is up to you, but it would depend on my breeder's reaction to the news as to whether or not I post in any public forum about the Giardia. As it is as easily caught as Parvo or Kennel Cough. I hope your puppy is okay and I hope that all the other puppies, mamma dog and whatever other dogs the breeder may have are all okay.

Anonymous asked:
Do Corgis shed? Do older Corgis adjust to a new family, a new home and a new environment as well?



The Corgi breed does shed, however, a light brushing twice a week for 20 minutes and a high-quality dog food will keep the shedding to a minimum. Adult Corgi's can adjust and adapt to a new home with minimal problems as long as the owners are dog-savvy and have done their research on the breed.


Corgis shed an unbelievable amount!! I have two now and they are worth every bit of work but you have to vacuum daily!
