The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a centuries-old breed, originating in Wales as far back as the 10th century. They were used as herding dogs on farms, responsible for driving cattle to market. Over time, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi became a popular pet for families in Wales, and eventually spread to other parts of the world. Today, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is recognized by the AKC and is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a small dog, standing at 10-12 inches tall and weighing between 20-30 pounds. They have a distinctive appearance, with short legs, a deep chest, and a long body. They have a double coat, with a soft and dense undercoat and a harsh, weather-resistant outer coat. The most common coat colors for Pembroke Welsh Corgis are red, sable, fawn, black, and blue merle.
Personality and Training
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are friendly, outgoing, and energetic dogs. They are known for their love of play and their strong herding instincts. They are highly trainable and make excellent family pets. With proper training and socialization, Pembroke Welsh Corgis can be well-behaved and obedient. However, they can also be stubborn at times, so it's important to use positive reinforcement training techniques to keep them motivated and engaged in training.
Health and Care
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are generally healthy dogs, but they are prone to certain health conditions. Common health issues include hip dysplasia, intervertebral disc disease, and eye problems. It's important to keep your Pembroke Welsh Corgi at a healthy weight and to provide regular veterinary care to keep them in good health. They are also moderate shedders, so it's important to brush their coat regularly to keep their fur healthy and shiny.
