HIS TEMPERMENT

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi are intelligent, active, alert little little dogs who will want to be the center of your world.

They love to be with their families, and will shower you with loyalty, devotion and affection.

They need daily exercise and love to take long walks with you.

They are intelligent and eager to please and do great with obedience training.

They excel in obedience, agility, flyball, Frisbee, herding, and tracking competitions.

They get along very well with respectful children, but parents need to be aware that Corgis might try to herd kids. (They also might try to herd other animals and your houseguests.)

Most Corgis like to be with other cats and dogs.

They are adaptable dogs and can live anywhere as long as they get walked, but they do like to bark, so close neighbours might object.

While personalities differ within the breed, in general, the Corgi is even-tempered, hardy, friendly, loyal and loving.

And they are always full of fun.

TRAINING

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is very intelligent and easy to train. He learns new commands very fast.

COLOUR

Can be red, sable, fawn, or black and tan – almost always with white markings on feet, tail, face, chest and/or around the neck`

COAT

The undercoat is short to medium in length, thick and water-resistant. The outer coat is longer and slicker. The ruff around the neck is slightly thicker and longer.

SHEDDING

he Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a very heavy shedder. He sheds an awful lot of hair! You'll find hair all over your home, stuck to everything! You'll probably even find it in the butter!

GROOMING

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi only requires an occasional brushing. But because he sheds excessively you may find yourself brushing him daily to remove loose hair. (What you get out with a brush doesn't fall out in your home!)

• Providing lots of mental stimulation that fulfills his desire to work and gives him something productive to do

• Destructiveness when bored or left alone too much

• Territorial aggression toward dogs and cats he doesn't know

• Strong-willed mind of his own, requiring a confident owner who can take charge

• Chasing and nipping at things that move: children, joggers, other animals, bikes, cars

• Barking

• Heavy shedding
