Cardigan Welsh Corgis are active, obedient, intelligent and alert. They make good watch dogs, as well as good guard dogs. They can be possessive, and can be scrappy with other dogs. But with their friends and family they are playful, affectionate and loving. They may nip at the heels, trying to herd you or your children. They need strong training in avoiding nipping humans, and they learn quickly. They are fun loving, easygoing, and sprightly. Wary of strangers, they remain devoted to their owners and are usually good with kids. They can be amusing with their jaunty attitude. Welsh Corgis are little dogs with big hearts, hard working and affectionate.
Brush the Cardigan Welsh Corgis coat twice a week with a firm bristle brush. Bathe only when necessary. Shedding is twice a year.
Obesity, spinal problems, degenerative myelopathy (neurological disease known to cause lameness) and some inherited eye disorders such as PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy).
Plenty of exercise at least twice a day as you do not want them to become obese and lazy. Cardigan Welsh Corgis love to have room to run around freely.
Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppies are good listeners and are very attentive, making their training and upbringing easy. They are not difficult to train because of their high intelligence and quick learning ability. They should be socialized early on to avoid confrontation and suspiciousness with friendly animals and humans.
