Dog Training Profile for your dog from one of our expert trainers


Pembroke Welsh Corgi

It is said that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi can be traced all the way back to around 1100AD. Vikings brought the dog down the Wales and used them for herding sheep and many other animals. He may have descended from the Swedish Vallhund Dogs, Schipperke, Pomeranian or other Spitz type dogs.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is very eager to please it's owner and will show great loyality and obedience. They are very good with children if they know where they stand in the pecking order and are very active dogs. He can make a good guard dog as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi barks at most things. He should be socialised from an early age or he may tend to bark and growl at dogs and strangers.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi's fur is soft and fairly short which makes it easy to brush. They should be groomed regularly with a firm bristle brush and bathed only when necessary e.g. covered in mud. The coat sheds a few times a year so shedding is quite heavy.

If he does not get enough exercise or has an excessive diet, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is quite prone to becoming obese. They also experience PRA, glaucoma and back disorders, which may be aggravated further by obesity.
