Welsh Corgi Training

About This Breed

The Welsh Corgi group includes two breeds, namely the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The distinction between the two breeds dates back in the early 1920’s. Up to this date, both the Pembrokes and the Cardigans were considered one single breed.

The two breeds share many common characteristics. Their appearance is almost the same, except for the presence of the tail. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi does not have a tail. The Cradigans have usually longer bodies than the Pembrokes. The Pembrokes are more sociable with people and other pets.

Both breeds brag with cleverness, so the Welsh Corgi dog training will be an easy thing to do. Both the Cardigans and the Pembrokes can be used as guard dogs, considering their alert temperament, and the fact that they will bark at strangers.

The Welsh Corgi does pretty well in an apartment and will be active indoors. Anyhow the Welsh Corgis love to run outdoors, so consider this fact when buying a Corgi.

The Welsh Corgis are the favorites of Queen Elisabeth II.
