Pembroke Welsh Corgi "Another Gift from the Fairies"

Pembroke Welsh Corgi picture To the novice, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi resembles the Cardigan Welsh Corgi.  Look closer, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi hasn't got any tail, it - "broke" off.  If you remember that, you won't confuse the two Corgi breeds.  Actually, it is either born with no tail, or it is docked short.  To Welsh Corgi fanciers, of course, there are many other differences, including their origins.  The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a much younger breed than the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Prior to 1934, both the Pembroke Corgi and Cardigan Corgi were registered and shown in exhibitions as one breed. Interbreeding was allowed and certain characteristics of the one, were passed to the other. The importance of the Pembroke Corgi being born tailless diminished which led to the docking of tails of those born with one. Many objections were raised until the Kennel Club, in 1931, banned the docking. The ban, however, only lasted three years. The subject remains a less sensitive subject today.

A Pembroke Welsh Corgi is intelligent, and quite easily trained. Its temperament must be irreproachable. Its head is foxy in shape, but the expession is alert and intelligent, not sly.  It is quite happy in a smaller house.  It is moderately active, and so its exercise needs are short, about 15 minutes, 3 times a day.  Although it is a small dog breed, it thinks big, and many larger dogs soon learn to respect its immense bravery.  They are never shy and are usually not quarrelsome.  Its grooming needs are minimal most of the year, and generally once a week is quite sufficient.  Seasonal shedding however, is rather heavy, lasting a couple of short weeks.  The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is very fond of children and it usually bonds with the whole family.  In addition, they are considered excellent watchdogs, thus making a Welsh Corgi puppy a very worthwhile and exciting addition to a family! Obedience training is a natural for a Welsh Corgi puppy and both owner and dog benefit immensely.
