Happy: Corgis are a fun dog known to have a bright, cheerful personality. This is especially seen when they interact with families and children.
Intelligent: Corgis are quick to pick up on things, whether it is routine, training, or social activities. Their herding instinct also makes them quick to learn who their family and tribe are.
Herding: The Corgi breed were originally raised and bred for their herding instincts. To this day, they love running and being involved in energetic activities, especially when part of a group of their “herd.”
Watchdog: They may be small, but Corgis are known for their watchdog tendencies. They are known to be fearless if they sense danger, and are quick to use their big bark to alert humans to intruders.
Independent: Although they love socialization, Corgis are known to be more independent than some breeds. This can especially come through when they are being trained, and at times show a stubborn streak. For this reason, some find crate training the best way to housebreak their Corgi.
- Alertness: Corgis are naturally alert and make excellent watchdogs. Even as puppies, they may be quick to bark at unfamiliar sounds or people approaching the home.
- Strong Bond with Family: Corgis are known for forming strong bonds with their human families. They are loyal and devoted companions who often want to be involved in family activities.
- It’s important to note that while these characteristics are generally associated with corgi puppies and dogs, individual dogs may vary in their personalities and behavior. Early socialization, consistent training, and proper care are crucial for raising a well-adjusted and happy corgi puppy.
Corgi Breed history
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has its origin in Wales, as is suggested by its name.
There are several stories in regards to the Corgi’s history and beginnings.
One version of the Corgi’s beginnings is a fairy tale rendition. It says two children were in the fields with their family’s cattle when they found several puppies. Thinking they were baby foxes, they brought them home.
Their parents realized they were actually puppies, and they told their children the Corgis were a gift from the fairies. The parents also said the Corgi’s small size made them the stallion upon which fairies rode, and their white markings around the neck and chest were saddle marks from the fairies.
A more factual version involves a group of weavers in 1107. Known for their ornate tapestries, these weavers were invited by Henry I of Britain to work for the British crown, and he had them work and live in southeastern Wales.
Along with their tools and skills, these skilled weavers brought their short-legged dogs that they used to herd their cattle and sheep.
A third version says Vikings introduced the Corgi to Wales in the 10th century, and the breed was kept by local farmers due to their herding abilities.
Corgis were recognized as a distinct breed in the 1920s. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi and its cousin, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, were recognized as separate breeds in the 1930s.
Corgi Average size
Adult Corgis usually reach 10 to 16 inches tall at the shoulder.
Healthy Corgis weigh 30 to 35 pounds, but be careful: They love to each, so watch their weight!
Average Corgi lifespan
Pembroke Welsh Corgis have an average life span of 12 to 14 years.
Corgi body features
There are two types of Welsh Corgis: The Pembroke Welsh and the Cardigan Welsh.
While they may look similar, the key between the two types is their tails. Pembroke Welsh Corgis have short (or docked) tails, and Cardigan Welsh Corgis have long tails.
Corgis are known for their color scheme: They usually have white markings on their legs, belly, chest, muzzle, and neck.
grooming Your Corgi Puppy
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are double-coated, which means they have a thick undercoat and a longer topcoat. This means they will have frequent shedding, so regular and proper grooming is important.
It is recommended to groom your Corgi a minimum of several times a week, and preferably daily.
Not only does daily brushing remove loose hair and reduce shedding; it also keeps knots from building up in their hair and coat.
A key to grooming your Corgi is to start when they are a puppy. If grooming is done consistently as a puppy, it becomes routine to both you and your dog.
Regular baths are not needed due to oils in their skin. However, if your dog is dirty due to mud or grime, then give it a bath. Some also find shedding is reduced if baths are given during the peak shedding times.
Keeping Your Corgi Puppy Healthy
Most dog breeds love to eat, and Corgis are no exemption! However, with their smaller body mass and temperament, it is especially important to be aware that your Corgi does not overeat.
It is suggested you feed your Corgi twice a day instead of leaving food out all the time. This helps prevent your Corgi from overeating.
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two common health issues found in most dog breeds.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from excessive running on hard surfaces. This is especially vital when they are a puppy.
Corgis love to exercise, and moderate daily activity helps maintain their physical and mental health.
Typical Corgi Allergens
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.
Because Pembroke Welsh Corgis are double-coated, they shed more than some breeds. Often they have heavier shedding several times a year.
This tendency to shed should be considered if someone in your family has concerns with pet allergens.
However, proper and regular grooming and cleaning reduce the number of allergens a Corgi releases, especially if you start as a puppy and it becomes routine in your schedule.
- Are Corgis stubborn?Corgis definitely do have a stubborn streak in them. They are more independent than some breeds and have their own ideas sometimes. Because they are herd dogs they are strong willed and like to make their own rules. That said, Corgis still love their people, and with proper training they are quite obedient and respectful.
- What is the difference between a Cardigan Welsh and Pembroke Welsh Corgi?The main difference between the two types of Corgis are their tails. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi has a long tail, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a docked tail. Here are a few other differences between the two breeds: The Cardigan is slightly larger and heavier than the Pembroke. The Pembroke is a newer breed than the Cardigan. Cardigan Corgis’ ears are slightly larger and more rounded. Cardigan Corgis come in more colors than Pembroke Corgis. Blue merle Cardigan Corgis are allowed to have blue eyes, whereas Pembroke Corgis are not allowed to have blue eyes.
- Do Corgis ever have blue eyes?Yes. Both Cardigan and Pembroke Corgis sometimes have blue eyes. However, blue eyes are considered a fault in Pembroke Corgis. In Cardigan Corgis that carry the blue merle gene, they are considered OK.
- Are Corgis ever different colors?Yes. Corgis are most often a reddish color with white markings on their face, chest, and legs, but they can come in different colors too. They can be: Red and white spotted, Tri-colored (red, black, and white spotted), Sable (red, black, and white all mixed together), Black and white spotted, Blue merle (marbled gray, black, and white), and Brindle (brown base with black overlay and white markings).
- Do Corgis bark a lot?Yes, corgis do tend to bark more than some other dog breeds. They may bark out of alarm, fear, boredom, attention-seeking, greeting, or just for fun. With proper training and response, they can be trained to not bark as much.
- Are Corgis affectionate?Yes, corgis do tend to bark more than some other dog breeds. They may bark out of alarm, fear, boredom, attention-seeking, greeting, or just for fun. With proper training and response, they can be trained to not bark as much.
- Do Corgis like to roam?Corgis are not excessive roamers. They are active and intelligent, so they may wander off and explore at times, but they do not have an irresistible urge to go and see the world.
- Are Corgis hard to train?Not usually. Corgis do have a stubborn side, so they need their owner to clearly tell them who is in charge. But they are also very intelligent and eager to please, so if they are socialized well at a young age they should be fairly easy to train. Start training them as young as possible because if you wait they will grow more headstrong.
- Do Corgis like to have their paws touched?Most dogs don’t like to have their paws touched. This is probably an instinctual desire to protect their crucial body parts from harm. It may make them feel awkward or vulnerable to have their paws touched. If you want your Corgi to be OK with you touching its paws, get it accustomed to you doing so at a young age.
- Do Corgis get smelly?Yes, Corgis can get stinky due to their double coat. Many owners acknowledge that their Corgis smell mildly doggy. That said, they are not the stinkiest dogs out there either, and they are fairly clean as they shed their coats often. In summary: How much your Corgi smells depends on the environment they live in and how often you bathe them.
