Cardigan Welsh Corgi

Cardigan Welsh Corgi


Height: 10.5-12.5 inches

Weight: 25-38 lbs.

Life Span: 12-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Herding Dogs

Overview
Cardigan Welsh corgis are loyal and affectionate family dogs, intelligent, and easy to train. This dog has a tradition to uphold, guarding its property, checking on strangers, and nipping the heels of running humans.

Early training and socialization are important. The Cardigan Welsh corgi is a first-rate watchdog, barking when strangers are at the door but relaxing when they enter.

They are not usually aggressive, but will confidently hold their own with larger dogs; two male corgis in a single household will fight for dominance. Cardigans accommodate small animals, such as cats, if socialized with them at an early age. They adapt well to city and apartment life.

Appearance
The corgi's medium-length outercoat is harsh, dense, and weather-resistant; its undercoat is short, soft, thick, and insulating.

Color is red, sable, brindle, black, or blue merle, sometimes with white markings on the neck, chest, legs, face, feet, and tip of the tail. The tail is long and the ears round-tipped.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Cardigan Welsh corgis need to be brushed once a week. They adapt to the exercise schedule of their family and enjoy daily brisk walks.

Origins
The Cardigan Welsh corgi is an ancient breed probably introduced to Wales by the Celts more than 3,000 years ago. Its long, low-to-the-ground body and short legs reflect its dachshund ancestors.

In the 19th century this tough, fearless dog was a "heeler," directing livestock by nipping at their heels.

Breed-related health concerns: progressive retinal atrophy, glaucoma, intervertebral disc protrusion, bladder stones.
