5 Reasons why a Pembroke Welsh Corgi is the perfect dog to live with
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are the most lovable dog you will ever come across. They only want to be
with their people and have a good belly rub. Their huge, happy personality and energetic, goofy
behaviour will have everyone in love with them in no time. Their ability to adapt their energy levels to
the people around them is what makes them so suitable to everyone from children to their
Here are 5 reasons why we think a Corgi will make a great new addition to your family.
1 Their size
Their short legs and long bodies are usually the first thing that draws someone to the breed.
Females can be a little smaller than males. A Corgi can range in height at the shoulders 25-35cm.
Males can weigh up to 14 Kg and females up to 12.5 Kg. So if you are looking for a smaller dog who
still has a brain, go no further than the Corgi.
Not only does this make them easy to lift up if needed, but also some landlords require a dog to be
less than 15Kg or shorter than 45-50cm.
These dogs are as loyal as possible. They generally love the attention of all people, but will know who
their family or their person is and love you unconditionally. They will do anything for you once they
decide that you are family. For most Corgi owners, this is first shown by the corgi staying right by their
side all day. Even after closing a door on them, they’ll wait behind the door for you to come back.
3 Easily trainable
People who have had more than one breed of dog always say the same thing: “None of them have
been as easy to train as my Corgi”. Corgis are not only loyal, but they want to please you and receive
the good praise that comes with a job well done. They have a drive to be a good dog and have people
happy with them.
Corgis were originally livestock herding dogs and have since been amazing at agility trials.
Corgis love to learn new things and work very well with positive reinforcement. Corgis don’t need
treats to be well trained.
Of course, like all dogs, they can be naughty. However, teaching them that they are being naughty
and that you don’t like that behaviour is very easy to do with a Corgi.
This is the major seller for the Corgi. They have an amazing friendly temperament and are great with
kids. Kids and a Corgi make great friends and love to play together. However, Corgis also adapt to
your energy levels. If you are the kind of person who would rather walk slowly, instead of run, then a
Corgi will adjust their speed and high-energy output to match yours. You could also let your Corgi run
faster when outside, but walk slowly inside. This is what makes a Corgi so suitable to families with
Elderly people. There aren’t many breeds of dog that will be perfect for every member of your family.
All it takes is a very short amount of time for the Corgi to know what is right and wrong.
Is there a downside to having a Corgi? Much like a lot of other breeds, they shed. However, most will
argue that brushing and combing a dog is much easier than taking the dog to a groomer or having to
cut and trim their hair once a month.
A corgi will need a brush every week or two to keep their shedding under control. As long as you have
a cheap fine toothed comb/brush and ten minutes a week, you are ready for a Corgi!
