Cardigan Welsh Corgi Dog Temperament

Fun-loving and high-spirited, yet easygoing, the Cardigan is a devoted and amusing companion. This is a hardy breed, capable of a day dodging cow kicks, so he is agile and tireless. At home he is well-mannered but inclined to bark. He tends to be reserved with strangers.

Cardigan Welsh Corgi Dog Care

The Cardigan needs a surprising amount of exercise for its size. His needs can best be met with a moderate walk or vigorous play session. He is a very good house dog and best when he is allowed access to both house and yard. His coat needs brushing once a week to remove dead hair.
