Intelligent: Corgipoos inherit intelligence from both sides of their parentage. Poodles and Corgis are both smart breeds. Because of their high intelligence, Corgipoos should receive good training and lots of mental stimulation.

Affectionate: Corgipoos tend to be affectionate dogs that enjoy being close to their human companions. They often form strong bonds with their owners and thrive on attention and cuddles.
Adaptable: Due to their mixed heritage, Corgipoos can adapt well to various living situations, whether it’s an apartment in the city or a house in the suburbs. Their adaptability makes them suitable for a range of lifestyles.

Remember, while these traits are commonly associated with Corgipoos, each dog is an individual, and their personalities can vary based on their genetic makeup and early life experiences. Proper training, socialization, and consistent positive reinforcement can help shape a well-rounded and well-behaved Corgipoo companion.
Corgipoo Breed history
The Corgipoo is a designer breed. This means it is a cross between two AKC-recognized breeds, in this case, the Poodle and the Welsh Corgi. This means the AKC does not recognize the Corgipoo as a breed itself.
Nobody knows the exact origins of the breed, but it is fairly recent, and probably shares its origins with the rest of the “doodle” mixes. In the late 1980s, it became popular to cross Poodles with just about everything. The Corgipoo probably made its debut during this craze.
So although the Corgipoo is less than half a century old, both its parents have lengthy and meritable histories.
The Poodle has been an immensely popular breed for years. Although they are the national dog of France, Poodles actually originated in Germany. With excellent swimming skills and top-notch intelligence, they made superb water retrievers. Later, the Poodle’s qualities helped it to rise from a working dog to a favorite of royals in France and England. Today it remains one of the most popular dog breeds in the world.
The Poodle in a Corgipoo generally comes from a Miniature Poodle, as they are similar in size to Corgis, but it can come from Standard or Toy poodles as well.
The word “Corgi” comes from the Celtic word for dog. The Celts used Corgis as herd dogs over 1,000 years ago. The Corgi’s short, low-to-the-ground build allowed them to nip at the heels of cattle without getting kicked. In folklore, Corgis were the dogs of fairies and were given to families in need of protection. These adaptable dogs have also served as all-around farm dogs, hunting dogs, family dogs, and athletes.
The Corgi in a Corgipoo can come from either a Cardigan Welsh Corgi or a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
Corgipoo Average size
Corgipoos generally grow to be about 10-20″ at the shoulder and weigh 15-30 lbs.
Average Corgipoo lifespan
Corgipoos live to 12-14 years old.
Corgipoo body features
Because they are a hybrid, Corgipoos can inherit physical and personality traits from either parent. Their appearance is unpredictable, so every Corgipoo is unique! Some Corgipoo puppies have stand-up ears. Others get floppy ears. Weight and leg length are just as diverse and unpredictable.
However, although their appearance has variety, Corgipoos generally have the body of a Corgi and the soft coat of a Poodle. They come in lots of colors: black, white, gray, brown, or spotted. With Corgipoos, you never know what you’ll get. But whatever it is, it will be cute!
grooming Your Corgipoo Puppy
Corgipoos usually inherit a dense, wavy, medium-long, coat from their Poodle parent. This will require frequent brushing to prevent matting and tangling. Poodles shed very little, and if you are lucky, your Corgipoo will inherit this trait.
Your Corgipoo may shed more if it closely resembles its Corgi parent.
Keeping Your Corgipoo Puppy Healthy
Being a hybrid, Corgipoos are typically a healthy breed. Crossing two pure breeds creates a hardier dog with a lower chance of developing the health issues common to either breed. However, there are still some problems to look out for:
- Dwarfism – This is a genetic disease common in Corgis. Living with the condition causes Canine Degenerative Myelopathy, a progressive disease, later in life. CDM can result in paralysis.
- Addison’s disease – This is a hormonal disorder caused by the deficient production of hormones. It is common in Poodles.
- Bloat – Bloat occurs when a dog’s stomach fills with gas, food, or fluid, and then twists. It is common in Poodles.
- Kidney disease
Like all dog breeds, Corgipoos are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs. Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.
Typical Corgipoo Allergens
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.
Because of their Poodles parentage, Corgipoos are often hypoallergenic. However, Corgis are not always hypoallergenic, so if your Corgipoo takes after its Corgi parent, it may cause some allergies.
If you have someone in your home with animal allergy concerns, it is good to consult your family physician.
- Are Corgipoos stubborn?Corgis are notoriously stubborn, so a Corgipoo might inherit an independent streak from the Corgi side. However, Poodles are eager to please, so Corgipoos are usually easier to train than Corgis
- Are Corgipoos hypoallergenic?Poodles are hypoallergenic whereas Corgis are not. So whether or not your Corgipoo is especially allergy-aggravating depends on which side of the family it takes after.
- Do Corgipoos bark a lot?Corgipoos sometimes bark if bored, alarmed, or left alone. However, they are not known to be excessive barkers.
- Do Corgipoos shed a lot?Poodles are low shedders, but Corgis do shed some, especially when losing their winter coat. If you are lucky, your Corgipoo will take after their Poodle parent and have lower shedding tendencies.
- Do Corgipoos get separation anxiety?Yes, Corgipoos can develop separation anxiety. However, it’s not as bad as with some companion breeds, and with proper training they can become comfortable by themselves as well.
- Are Corgipoos high energy?Corgipoos have a lot of energy, but they tire fairly quickly. (Their short legs make walking long distances difficult!) They will need a moderate amount of exercise per day, but their exercise needs won’t be endless.
- Do Corgipoos make good watchdogs?Corgipoos are friendly dogs, but they are also watchful and alert. They can make good watchdogs with proper training.
- What are the grooming needs like with a Corgipoo?A Corgipoo’s coat may resemble its Poodle parent or its Corgi parent. Which one it takes after will affect its grooming needs. But either way, Corgipoos don’t take too much maintenance. Regular brushing and an occasional bath should do it. Be sure to check your Corgipoo’s ears and trim its nails regularly as well.
- Are Corgipoos mischievous?Absolutely! Corgipoos are known for their cheeky, mischievous personality. We recommend training and monitoring your Corgipoo well so he doesn’t misbehave himself!
- What size is the Poodle in a Corgipoo?The Poodle in a Corgipoo is normally either miniature or toy, as Corgis are small dogs.
