Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted March 29, 2014
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a great family dog. It does not necessarily need too much exercise so can live well in an apartment, but they can be trained for agility trials and will happily acquiesce to playtime and walks. Corgis are very affectionate and playful, and tend to follow their owners wherever they go. Because they are so eager to please, training can be fairly straightforward. Importantly, though, inside their compact bodies tends to come a bold and colorful personality, so a bit of sass should definitely be expected! Corgis are natural herders so it is important to socialize them well with small animals and small children, as nipping behavior can occur. However, I can honestly say I've fallen in love with every corgi I've ever worked with, and problematic behaviors do not tend to be too hard to curtail. Plus, how can anyone NOT love such a goofy, adorably mis-proportioned pooch?
