Originating in Pembrokeshire, Wales, and named after its origin, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is among the smallest of the herding dogs recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC). Often confused with the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, the Pembroke is very similar and until 1934 was recognized as the same dog. The Pembroke is slightly smaller in size and has a docked tail, whereas the Cardigan has a long tail. This breed originally developed for herding is much less of a working dog today and much more a family dog. Its sweet, affectionate and loyal personality makes them a great pet.
Appearance and Grooming
With dark oval shaped eyes and ears that are always upright on a head shaped similar to that of a fox, the Pembroke is notably a standout breed in the AKC. It has a medium length top coat that can come in a multitude of colors from red to tri-colored (red, black and tan), and often with white markings on the legs, chest, neck and muzzle. It also has a short undercoat, which means shedding can be quite significant in both the spring and the fall. Routine grooming in addition to weekly brushing can help control this considerably.
These pups are very loyal and love attention. Though, intelligent and easily trainable they do have a mind of their own and tend to beat to their own drum if proper training is not extended to them at an early age. They are eager to please their owners and family and so they will be sure to follow you wherever you go. Because of their lineage, they do have the tendency to try to herd - this type of behavior should not be encouraged as it is a sign of dominance.
Family and Companionship
Their devotion and protecting attitude makes them a perfect watch dog and companion. They are great with children and other pets as long as herding behaviors are corrected early on. They adapt very well to all settings both small in size, such as an apartment or in a larger rural setting if they are given proper exercise and play.
This pooch loves to eat as much as it loves to exercise. Make sure to monitor their consumption as these dogs are prone to weight gain. Daily walks along with active play are just what this pup needs to remain fit and healthy. DO encourage this little one to walk side by side with its owner on the lead or leash and not leading the way, as this breed sees being ahead as being in charge.
Training and Socialization
Known for their high intelligence and need to please attitude they also have a tendency to crave attention and leadership, which can lead them to showing off their dominance trait. This is a dog that loves to hear themselves “speak”. If left their own devices, they will develop a bad habit of barking at every noise they hear and herding other animals and smaller children. Early socialization and training can help to break or prevent this habit.
