Overview
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.
Character
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".
Temperament
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.
Care
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.
Coat
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.
Training
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.
Activity
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
As a breeder, we take pride in offering the best healthiest, smart and loving puppies. We are dedicated to serving the needs of our customers each and every day. We live on a ranch and have plenty of room for our dogs to explore and play. Each and everyone of them are special to us. The Border Collies all are trained to work cattle and are level headed and very enjoyable to have as pets or highly competitive in agility. The Border Collie is a well-balanced, medium-sized dog of athletic appearance. The body is slightly longer than the height at the withers. It is very agile, and has a well proportioned body of lean muscle. This dog breed is highly intelligent and hardworking that responds quickly and eagerly to training. The Border Collie is the world's premiere unsurpassed as a sheepdog in terms of agility, stamina and patience. It excels in obedience competitions. It thrives on games and is eager to please. The Border Collie is bred for working ability and intelligence rather than for physical beauty. Although, I believe, they are very beautiful. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is low-set, strong and sturdily built, gives an impression of substance in a small space. There are one of the most agreeable small house dogs, as well as an avid competitor in many dog sports, including conformation, herding and obedience. The Pembroke Corgi is a separate breed from the Cardigan Corgi, possessing a shorter body and straighter, lighter boned legs. His ears are pointed at the tip and stand erect, and he has a short tail. The coat can be red, sable, fawn, black and tan with or without white markings. Our corgis are very lovable and fun. Who can beat a Corgi smile? A Pomsky puppy, is most definitely to a dog lover the cutest pup you could ever lay eyes upon. One of the more recent additions to the designer dog arena, Pomskies are a result of a crossing between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. As with most hybrid breeds, the physical appearance of a Pomsky puppy can be somewhat unpredictable, and as a fairly new breed, Pomsky breeders are still tweaking the perfect look for the breed. However, most enthusiasts seem to gravitate towards a look that is similar to a Husky but smaller in size. The Pomsky's temperament too can be varied depending on each parent's genetic contribution, but they are generally considered to be highly intelligent, loving and playful dogs. Our huskies are very social and obedient. They love to hike, and we even hook them up to slay, in the winter. Our Pomeranian is my baby he loves to play fetch and is always at my side.

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.

Anonymous asked:
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.

Do Welsh Corgi, Pembroke shed a lot?

4 Comments

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.

Are Pembroke Welsh Corgis good swimmers? I have lost two Schnauzers to water.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi or any Corgi for that matter are normally not good swimmers. Their legs are too short for their bodies and they can not keep afloat. If you do get one, I would suggest a life jacket whenever around water for the safety of the dog.

Anonymous

Our little buddy would paddle around in a local slow moving stream. His body kind of floated and his short legs would paddle madly like he was running. Generally he would swim for about a minute or so. Since Corgis tend to have a bit of extra fat, I think it helps them float.

We cannot keep our Corgi out of the pond! She LOVES to swim and if we throw the ball too many times she will trot over to the pond and swim back and forth to cool off. It is a challenge to keep her out of the water.

Anonymous

My first Corgi was an ace swimmer, he would even dive off the diving board and swim out to the float. He would spend hours at the lake with us

Anonymous

Corgis are water dogs but due to their short legs they get exhausted quicker than most dogs and it is recommended that you buy them life jackets

Anonymous

Our two pembrokes swim a lot, but not long. Agreed they get tired from paddling so keep a watchful eye on them but they do love the water.

Anonymous

When we take our Corgi's camping they will swim from the shore to a raft and back again, nothing longer. But they do like the water, so sprinklers, hoses and a child pool for their enjoyment and yours.

Anonymous

Our Corgi loves the water. They tend to float with their back end. She will play with two full size Labs in the water being very vocal to them and last as long as they do. While swimming, she will use her front legs more and it seems that she just lets the back end follow. You just keep an eye on them like you would your kids.

I am thinking about getting a Male Welsh Corgi and a Male Mini Aussie. I do not know how they will react to one another? I don't know which I should get first or just get one then wait a few months to get another.

Never ever should you get two puppies/dogs at the same time! The puppies/dogs will become so bonded to each other that they will not bond well with the humans in the household. As a breeder, I would never allow someone to take a puppy home that has another dog under the age of 8 months to a year old -- depending on the situation. Puppies are a ton of work and two puppies are even more work. Please take your time. Get one puppy first, raise and train the dog and at a year old, then get your second dog. This way the two are still close enough in age to play. But remember, the closer the dogs are in age, the higher the probability that in 10 or so years -- both of them will pass close to the same time, so please take that into consideration.

I don't know Mini Aussies but I know Corgis. My immediate reaction to your question was, "don't do it!" If you want more than one dog at a time, the last breed I make part of a pair, especially two males...is a Welsh Corgi.
