Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Behavior

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is an energetic dog that bonds quickly with their family. These pups are known for their brave, smart, alert, and self-confident personalities. The Pembroke Welsh is a bit less aggressive and less boisterous than their Cardigan Welsh relative, but they make good watchdogs and won’t hesitate to bark at anything out of the ordinary.

Coat

Pembroke Welsh Corgis have a long, thick, water-resistant outer coat of hard, straight hair and a short undercoat. They can be red, sable, fawn, or black and tan, all with white markings on the legs, chest, muzzle, or blaze (vertical line between the eyes). Pembrokes also may have a “fairy saddle” of hair on their shoulders pointing in a different direction than the rest of the coat. These dogs don’t need much grooming; brush them once in a while to remove dead hair, and give them a bath only when needed.

Lifestyle

Pembroke Welsh Corgis are good with kids as long as they’re respected. They tend to nip at the heels, but training can help curb their bad habits. Pembrokes also can get along well with cats and other pets if they’re socialized at a young age, but they’re not usually fond of other dogs and may be domineering over nearby Corgis. Pembrokes are small enough for apartment life, but they enjoy homes with spacious yards too. They like being outdoors, but they prefer to split their time between life inside with the family and playtime in the yard.

Activity

This breed has endless energy and needs more exercise than their size may indicate. Pembroke Welsh Corgis enjoy long walks, running around the yard, agility training, and playing catch with Frisbees. They shouldn’t be allowed to jump too high because it’s not safe for their long back and short legs.
