Origins

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is one of the oldest breeds in the United Kingdom, with a history that can be traced back over a thousand years. Unlike the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, its more famous counterpart, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has a deeper and more diverse lineage that includes a blend of influences from various Scandinavian and Celtic herding breeds.

Believed to have been brought to Wales by the Celts during their migration from Central Europe around 1200 B.C., these sturdy dogs were instrumental in the Celtic farming culture. They were bred to be expert herders, capable of managing cattle, sheep, and horses.

This herding instinct can still be seen in the breed today. It’s said that they earned the name “Corgi” from the Welsh words ‘cor’ (dwarf) and ‘ci’ (dog), a clear nod to their short-legged yet stout and hardy physique.

Over the centuries, Cardigan Welsh Corgis endured ups and downs in their population due to various societal changes. Post World War II, the breed saw a decline in numbers, which fortunately stabilised over time due to dedicated breeders’ efforts. Despite this, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi remains less common than the Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

Nature / Temperament

Intelligent, Devoted, Hardworking, Energetic, Sweet

Suitable Environment

While they are adaptable to various living conditions, Cardigan Welsh Corgis need space to run around and play due to their active nature. They are well-suited to homes with a backyard but can also adapt to apartment living if they get regular exercise.

Other Considerations

– Their historical background as herders has made them vigilant and protective, which can also make them excellent watchdogs.

– Care should be taken to prevent them from jumping from high places or climbing steep stairs frequently.

– They enjoy being part of family activities and are known to be quite playful, making them great companions for children.

How can I take good care of my Cardigan Welsh Corgi?

Nutrition

Cardigans, like all dogs, thrive on a balanced diet. However, they are prone to obesity, so careful attention must be paid to their food intake and weight.

High-quality commercial dog food that is appropriate for their age (puppy, adult, or senior), size, and activity level usually provides balanced nutrition.

Treats can be a good tool for training, but they should make up no more than 10% of a dog’s daily caloric intake to prevent weight gain.

Always consult your vet if you have questions about your dog’s diet or if you’re considering feeding them a homemade diet.

Grooming

Regular brushing (at least once or twice a week) will help manage shedding and keep their coat healthy. Bathing is only necessary every few months or when they are particularly dirty.

Exercise

They require around an hour to an hour and a half of regular exercise to keep them fit and prevent obesity. Daily walks, play sessions, and access to a secure outdoor area where they can run around are ideal.

They also enjoy more structured activities like obedience, herding, and agility trials, and even dog sports such as flyball. Their intelligence and love of a challenge make them excellent competitors in these fields.

Training

With their intelligence and eagerness to please, Cardigans are generally easy to train. However, they can sometimes show a stubborn streak. Positive reinforcement methods work best with this breed, and consistency is key.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Cardigan Welsh Corgi Questions

No, Cardigan Welsh Corgis are not considered a hypoallergenic breed. They have a double coat and shed regularly, which can trigger allergies in sensitive individuals.

Housetraining a Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppy, like any breed, can take some time and patience, but their intelligence and eagerness to please can make the process easier compared to some other breeds.

Finding a reputable Cardigan Welsh Corgi breeder is the key to getting a healthy, well-behaved Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppy. A puppy from an ethical breeder has a much better chance of growing into a calm, gentle adult dog.

The average cost of a Cardigan Welsh Corgi for sale is usually around AUD $3000 to $4000.
