The character of the corgi:

Robustness, vivacity, sociability are some of the characteristics of the Welsh corgi. Very curious, he likes to explore new places and constantly face new situations. Energetic, full of life, he is always ready for games and walks, but still enjoys moments of calm.

Very close to his master, he needs his presence and suffers from being kept away, left alone or in a kennel. He has kept from his past as a shepherd dog a natural reserve for strangers, but also speed, tenacity and a certain desire to satisfy his master. His atavism as a herd driver is reflected in his tendency to chew your heels: he tries to gather his whole little world like a herd.

The corgi dogs is a small dog that does not know it is small: it behaves like the strongest of the shepherds, not hesitating to do the 400 strokes if you give it the opportunity. As soon as he arrives home, set the rules he will have to follow throughout his life in your home. There is no way that one of you will allow what the other has prohibited or that you will ever accept what you refused the day before.
A firm education does not mean brutal, the Welsh corgi would not tolerate it. Consistent orders command given in a clear voice, and adapted punishment (the puppy can be shaken by the skin of the neck, the adult put in "quarantine" for a while), is enough to make your corgi the most obedient of the doggies.

The lifestyle of the Welsh corgi:
The corgi welsh is an active dog, which needs its cash for outings and activities. He can easily live in an apartment, as long as he regularly lets off steam during a few long walks.
He excels in many dog sports. The herd, which is its primary activity, is, of course, one of its favorite sports, but it is not always easy to practice... On the other hand, it is possible to initiate it to agility or obedience, because it is a lively, intelligent dog, always ready to please its owner. These qualities have also made it possible to train Pembrokes to track, search for rubble, or be dogs for the deaf. This function is quite common in the United States.

Hygiene and health:
Grooming Its maintenance is limited to a comb stroke to be carded from time to time.

It only requires routine eye, ear, tooth, and pad care.

On the health side, the corgi welsh is not a good customer for the veterinarian. There are very few individuals with hereditary diseases in the breed (dermatomyositis and retinal dysplasia) and he is a robust dog, which does not require special care.

Power supply:
The dog's diet will depend on its breed and weight as well as its lifestyle. The corgi's role must take into account, among other things, its activity.

Origins of the corgi:
In the 12th century Wales, farmers sold their cattle far from their villages, sometimes even as far as London. The corgis were useful to them in guiding cattle herds to markets. Industrialization put an end to this work as herd drivers. They then become companion dogs or farm dogs. At the end of the 19th century, it was said that in Wales each farm had 1 or 2 corgis.

The first dog show where corgis are presented took place in Bancyfelin in 1892. In December 1925, a major step forward in the recognition of corgis was taken with the founding of the Corgi Club. In 1934, the Kennel Club recognized the cardigan and Pembroke varieties separately.
