The Welsh Corgi Pembroke. A 'royaly' good dog.
People of all ages love the Welsh Corgi Pembroke; they are natural charmers. The queen of England even currently owns two as they have become a traditional companion in England's royal family.
Corgis can excel in various activities and dog sports, including obedience, exhibition, track and agility.
Only the imagination sets a limit as to what you can use a Welsh Corgi for.
Independent, intelligent and brave
The Corgi was initially a farm dog in spectacular Wales. There they herded cows and performed other tasks on the farm, including removing pests and guarding property.
They were good playmates for the children too!
The Corgi had to be independent, energetic, and brave to do these tasks (cows are big, they are small).
These qualities still persist in the Corgi. Other describing words for this breed are intelligent, bossy, humorous, and docile.
It needs lots of stimuli
An owner should utilize the shepherding qualities, ingenuity, and intelligence. Otherwise, the Corgi might develop destructive behavior.
When this breed becomes restless, they might chew shoes or run off with your clothes.
The best medicine against such behavior is to activate us, preferably by giving us work assignments at home or participating in dog sports. In addition, of course, we need daily walks in the woods and fields to thrive.
Do not be surprised if you see Corgie with bossy tendencies towards other dogs. Historically they were the only dog on the farm, so they have been evolutionarily trained to become the 'boss dog'.
Though, if socialized from an early age, they will become more accepting of other dogs.
Welsh corgi Pembroke is talkative.
Something most Corgis do is make a lot of noise. Not just barking but also howling and other "weird" sounds.
Welsh Corgi Pembroke are robust and healthy dogs. Some can suffer from hip dysplasia, and spinal prolapse in the back occurs, though this is rare.
Healthy individuals have a life expectancy of 12-14 years.
