Welsh Corgi

The Welsh Corgi is a small herding dog that originated in Wales. There are two varieties of Welsh Corgi, The Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi with former being more popular. These two varieties differ in bone structure, body length and size. They have been named after the counties where they were developed.

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is the larger of the two breeds and comes with rounded ears and double coat that comes in more colors than Pembroke variety but should not be predominantly white. The Cardigan’s coat is of medium length, harsh and dense while the undercoat is short, soft and thick. This dog stands around 12 inches and weighs about 30 pounds.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs are low-set, relatively smaller in size than Cardigans with a height of around 10-12 inches and weigh about 28 pounds. This dog comes with erect and pointed ears. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a double coat with medium length hair and are fairly heavy shedders. In addition to their regular shedding, they blow their coat twice a year (in the spring and fall).

Both these breeds are efficient herding dogs that are popular around the world.

They are recognized by AKC as well as other major kennel clubs like FCI, UKC, CKC and many others.
