Pembroke Welsh Corgi Grooming and Breed Care

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Temperament

Active, intelligent, and quick to learn, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a dependable dog and is easy to train. This breed is well suited to the more inexperienced dog owner as well as experienced ones, and makes a good family pet and companion. These Dogs are very alert and will bark to raise the alarm if anything seems to be amiss, making them effective watchdogs - be warned though, as some can bark excessively. These are herding Dogs by nature, and this is still reflected in the way that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi will try and herd people and other animals, often by nipping at the heels, which is something that will need to be addressed. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi thrives on the love and companionship of his owners, and is not the right dog for those with little time to dedicate to a pet - neglecting this dog can lead to boredom and destructive behavior.

 

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a loving and affectionate dog, and will get along well with gentle children and family pets. He is likely to chase off strange cats and Dogs, as he has been trained to do historically. With strangers the Pembroke Welsh Corgi may be very suspicious, which adds to his watchdog abilities, but with guests he tends to be polite and dignified. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi needs a moderate amount of exercise, and will enjoy playing games and joining in family activities. Owners do need to exercise some assertiveness, as these Dogs can be independent and strong minded. However, he is also attentive and eager to please, often excelling at obedience training.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Appearance

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a low, long body, and is small to medium in size. He has a sturdy build, short legs, and quite large, erect ears that add to his inquisitive, alert expression. Unlike the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, these Dogs have no tail or a far less bushy tail. The coat of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is straight, smooth, and water resistant, with a dense undercoat. The coloring of the coat can vary, and includes sable, fawn, or red, with white patches, or black, white, and tan. These Dogs weigh in at 25-30 pounds, and the height of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is around 10-12 inches.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Grooming

The coat of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi will need to be brushed on a daily basis during periods when he is shedding more heavily, and on a weekly basis at other times of the year. These Dogs shed quite heavily on a seasonal basis, and will also shed more lightly for the rest of the year, so they are not best suited to allergy sufferers.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is around 12-14 years, and there are a number of health issues to look out for with this breed. This includes PRA, vWD, spinal problems, lens luxation, retinal problems, and HD. Excessive jumping, lack of support when handled, or excessive weight gain can all add to the risk of spinal problems for this breed. The parents of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi History

A firm favorite with the British Monarchy, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was developed in Wales, and enjoys a rich and long history.
