Corgis have been around for a long, long time. They are from Wales and are similar to their cousin the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The exact history and development of the breed is unknown, but date back approximately 900 years. The corgi is the smallest member of the herding group. The Pembroke and Cardigan Corgis were recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1934. Do not underestimate the working ability of these little dynamos! They are farm dogs that are bred to herd cattle and sheep. A corgi is gentle, protective and make for wonderful family pets.
It is important to feed a corgi (or any dog) quality food in moderation. I feed my corgis Blue Buffalo
twice daily. I add a little plain yogurt in the morning and often add treats to their dry food at night such as cooked green beans, carrots, plain canned pumpkin or a couple of tablespoons of quality canned food.
Corgis require regular exercise as they can be prone to weight gain. Regular nail trims and brushing are part of owning a corgi. I recommend weekly grooming. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! You won't regret the required annual health checks and vaccinations.

Manners are important. Housebreaking and basic commands (come, sit, stay, walking on a leash) create better pets. Socializing is part of that responsibility. It is important that a dog is able to be around other dogs and people. We put a great deal of time and energy to make sure our dogs are well socialized.

puppies. You can contact us via email for more information. You will be asked to provide information about yourself, and your plans for a prospective corgi.
