The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Dog Breed Essential Tips, Advice And Information

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is active indoors so they can do well in an apartment as well as a house. They are highly intelligent, short dogs that make great watch dogs. They are cattle herders so they may tend to try to herd children, adults and other dogs. They can be aggressive with other dogs, especially male on male. They like children but do not like to be teased. As a reminder, never leave a child unsupervised with a puppy or dog.


Approximate Adult Size


The approximate adult size (two years old or older) of the male Pembroke Welsh Corgi is 10 to 12 inches to the withers (highest point of the shoulder) and 25 to 30 pounds. The female ranges from 10 to 12 inches to the withers and 24 to 28 pounds.


Special Health Considerations


Most dog breeds have certain inherited health problems associated with that specific breed and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is no exception. Be on the look out for back problems, epilepsy, hereditary eye disease and obesity. This disease list is an informative guideline only. Other diseases may also be significant threats, please contact your veterinarian for a complete list.


She should visit the veterinarian several times in the first year for shots, boosters and check up. Then, as an adult, she should visit the veterinarian yearly for shots and check up. As she gets older, six years and on, she should visit the veterinarian twice a year for check ups and shots. Remember; avoid feeding your dog sweets.


Grooming


The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a medium length, coat with a weather resistant inner coat. She should be brushed regularly. Brushing will help her maintain a clean and healthy coat, help you keep a closer eye on her health and strengthen your emotional bond with her.


Her teeth should be brushed at least twice a week with toothpaste and toothbrush designed for dogs. Brushing removes the accumulation of plaque and tartar which can cause cavities (rarely) and periodontal disease. Dog periodontal disease can lead to pain, loss of teeth, bad breath and other serious disease.


Her toenails may need to be examined for growth and clipped regularly. The toenails of the rear feet grow slower than the toenails of the front feet. Generally a guillotine type trimmer is the best for this chore and competent instructions to accomplish this can be found on the net.


Life Span


The Pembroke Welsh Corgi can live between 13 and 14 years with proper nutrition, medical care and excellent living conditions.


History


The Pembroke Welsh Corgi comes from Wales where they were used to herd cattle. They were first registered by the American Kennel Association in 1934.
