Cardigan Welsh Corgi
|Ease of Training|
- He originated in the British Isles and is one of the oldest herding breeds
- He's existed for 3000 years
- He comes from the same line of dogs as the Dachshund
- He was used to nip at the heels of cattle to guide them and his low height meant the kicks of the cattle would fly over his head
Personality and Behavior
- He's very intelligent
- He bonds closely with his master
- He has a lot of stamina
- He's wary of strangers and takes while to warm up to them
- He's loyal to his family and shows his affection with hugs and kisses
- The herding instinct runs in his blood and he may try to herd people, especially children, by nipping at their heels
- He's very easy to train. He learns commands very quickly.
- He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.
Grooming / Maintenance
- His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
