Originating in Wales, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is similar to the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. A multi-purpose breed, the Pembroke's many duties included that of a bird hunter, duck and geese herder, and sheep and cattle herder. They are the smallest member of the Herding group, and are well known as the favored breed and pet of Queen Elizabeth II.
Long and low with a robust build, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is spirited, athletic, and dependable. This versatile companion has a strong work ethic, and displays an intelligent and interested expression. They are often considered to be "a big dog in a small dog's suit".
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is obedient, loving, loyal, and deeply devoted. They are outgoing, friendly, and thrive on human companionship and attention. This breed is alert, fearless, and assertive. They make an excellent guard dog, but their tenacity can sometimes lead them into trouble. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is best suited for a family with older and considerate children. If they are left alone for extended periods of time they will become restless and bored which will lead to destructiveness and excessive barking. They are often wary of strangers and over-protective of their family and territory. Due to their herding nature, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi will attempt to perform this task on anything and everything that moves. This breed typically does well with other pets.
This breed requires minimal grooming. Regular brushing will minimize loose hair. Bathing should only be done when necessary. It is important to keep the nails trimmed to prevent splaying of the feet. Their ears need to be checked and cleaned on a consistent basis. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is prone to cataracts, retinal and hip dysplasia, epilepsy, disk disease, and Von Willebrand's disease.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a double coat breed. The outer coat is of medium length, straight, and coarse in texture. The under coat is thick, short, and weather resistant. The coat is more profuse around the neck, on the shoulders, and on the chest. The hair is longer on the back of the forelegs and rear of hindquarters. The color of the coat comes in sable, fawn, red, and black and tan. There may or may not be white markings. This breed is heavy shedding, and does completely shed bi-annually.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi's intelligence and willingness to please make them easily trained. However, they do not enjoy repetitive training as they easily become bored. They require early socialization and obedience. They excel in tracking, agility, herding, and conformation. This breed is also used for therapy and as hearing ear dogs. Training should be done with consistency, positive reinforcement, firmness, and fairness.
Full of stamina and spunk, this breed enjoys going for walks, romping in a securely fenced yard, family play sessions, or farm work. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is always eager for adventure, but is also just as content to be in the home with their family. They are suited for apartment dwelling provided they are sufficiently exercised, entertained, and stimulated.

I have Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppies for sale! See My Profile
Established, realistic and approachable AKC Welsh Pembroke Corgi breeders since 1992. We gladly provide references from past purchasers. One or two litters annually with pet quality puppies available and sometimes an exceptional litter will produce several outstanding pups offered to show homes. Our goals for these puppies are that they become happy, well adjusted adults, well cared for and not crated, kenneled and left alone for long periods of time, whether it be a pet or a show home. All pups are guaranteed to be structurally sound in body and limb and mentally well adjusted. Most sell to non-show homes and have limited registration. Occasionally, we sell an individual to a show home with no restrictions. We feel that one does not have to show and/or breed in order to own a quality Corgi and it is our first priority to make our puppies available to those we feel will provide a happy, healthy homes for the life of the dog. Stud service to approved bitches. Next litter anticipated summer 2012

Are Corgis bad for allergies?

1 Comment


Every person is different. One person can be allergic to the dander of the dog, while another could be allergic to the fur, or the protein in their saliva when the dog pants. Some people can even be allergic to a dogs urine or feces. Since every person is different, it is best to test themselves with the breed they are looking to getting. The Corgi, both the Cardigan and the Pembroke are not considered dogs that are easy on people with allergies, but again it all depends on the person.

Is it typical to have runt Pembroke Corgis? I have two sisters one which is normal sized and weight.(Lizzie) Her sister only weighs 20 lbs and is lower and shorter. Today I ran into a guy with a runt Cardigan. She was the same size as Maggie and also 20 lbs.



The average weight for a Cogi, both Pembroke and Cardigan is anywhere between 22 - 27lbs. With your dog being 20lbs; it suggests that she is a little smaller but not as drastic as some runts can be. Runts happen when they do not get as much nutrition from the mother while in utero and then again when they are born. It happens now and again with any mammal that gives birth to live young in a litter; all depending on the genetics of that animal. As long as your dog is not under-weight, is healthy and doesn't have any health problems; then your dog is just fine the way she is.


My Fluffy was great with people and dogs. She was healthy 14 years but developed Cushings and became gradually weaker for the last 6 months. Her weight at 11 months was only 18 lbs but was healthy at 25 lbs until she developed Cushings at 14 years old.

Anonymous asked:
Which gender of the Welsh Corgi, Pembroke make the best pet for a family pet - male or female?



There is no difference in gender when it comes to which is best for a family pet. Male or female, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi makes an excellent family companion.


In my experience males are often more even tempered. My male dogs have consistently been sweeter tempered and more easy going. Males often get along better with other dogs as well.

I have a Pembroke Corgi, she is 7 y/o. She is out of a litter of black tri-color puppies, all were this color except two who were white tri-colored (mine is one of these). The breeder said they were full blooded and her female usually always had at least one white in each litter. I haven't seen this color mentioned and wondered if this is common? I have never tried to register her because I'm not breeding her and I never asked to see her papers. She is my grandson's pet.



I am unsure what a white tricolor is in Pembroke Corgi breed. But there are several different colored coats that are standard and recognized in the breed. Red-headed tricolor, Black-headed tricolor, Sable, and Fawn. It sounds like you might have a black-headed tricolor and because she has more white on her than the other pups, the breeder named her color differently.


Maybe the stripe between the ears predominates. But a tri color means there are 3 colors...

Anonymous asked:
Do Welsh Corgi, Pembroke shed a lot?



Yes, this breed is heavy shedding, and does completely shed bi-annually. Meaning that the dog will shed its entire coat twice a year, normally in spring and fall. A 5 - 7 minute session of brushing every day (in the evening) will not only promote a healthy coat, but will help with the shedding and it is also a bonding exercise between you and your dog. Five minutes a day is all you need and then either a good 30 minute brushing once a week or taking your dog to a groomer once a month for a good thorough brushing and a bath with a de-shedding shampoo also works well.


No, it varies. Most corgis will never really need brushing. Some will only need brushing once a twice a week for 2-3 weeks during major temperature changes. Then older to middle age corgis shed a lot during major temp changes.


Just like any breed, they do shed, but regular brushing can bring this to a minimum.


Corgis shed a LOT!! But these dogs are such absolutely wonderful creatures God has blessed us with, shedding is the only negative thing I can say about them.


Yes, the show coats do..but it pretty well stays on the body until you comb or brush it out. I had a fluffy...who left a bit of cashmere fur on the carpet. I never saw it but the vacuum picked up cashmere looking stuff that could only have come from her. I had a show coat female that had such a heavy coat the fleas never bothered her. She would leave little puff balls occasionally on the floors. My male show coat would walk along the edge of our one sofa and I would take a brush and run it along there occasionally and get a brush full, but outside with a curry comb ,it really came out of both of them. Not so with my fluffy. It had to be pulled out so I kept her clipped short and she looked like a cute little bear from 4 years to 14.5 years when she passed away, which everybody including her...loved...if she had shed like the show coats I could have used her hair for spinning into knitting yarn.
