Records have been discovered that states that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi has existed in the UK since a least 920 AD. They are thought to have been brought to Wales by the Flemish weavers. They were very popular in the 14th to the 18th centuries as cattle drovers. They became Kennel Club registered in 1928 and accepted by the American Kennel Club in 1936. The Pembroke and Cardigan Corgis were recognised as separate breeds in the UK in 1934.
The Pembroke Corgi is a small sized, sturdy little dog that is set low to the ground. Their straight, medium length coat is waterproof.
Feeding & Ownership
Feeding must be watched as they do have a tendency to become overweight.
The Pembroke Corgi is an intelligent and active little dog. They are obedient and are loyal to the family. They do get on well with children as long as they are treated with respect. They are ideally suited to the active family. They should be socialised and training started at an early age.
The coat of the Corgi is of medium length, straight and waterproof with a dense undercoat. This coat needs a small amount of time spent on grooming. They do need to be brushed to remove any loose and dead hairs. If they have been out in the mud then it is easy to remove the dirt once it has dried.
