Welsh Corgis (Pembroke)

Pembroke Welsh corgis are known for their quick intelligence and forceful will. They are active, animated dogs and do not ever want to be left out of the action. In their own minds, they are big dogs in small bodies.

Corgis need exercise and training to make the most of their talents as well as keeping their weight under control. Corgis can be prone to excessive alarm barking and to digging or chewing if left alone too much or not exercised enough. Most corgis are fine with other pets and children if they have been raised with them. Beware that they will sometimes chase and nip at the heels of small running children because of their herding instincts.

We strongly believe in responsible breeding, only breeding from dogs that have passed a range of tests.  While this doesn't guarantee a puppy will be free of genetic health issues, it does mean we do as much as we possibly can to reduce the likelihood of it occurring.  

Corgi DNA testing is done to screen for the following diseases:

  • Cone-Rod Dystrophy I - PRA (cord I)

  • Degenerative Myelopathy

  • Exercise Induced Collapse (Retriever type)

  • von Willebrand's Disease Type I

Other screening is done to identify:

  • Hip and elbow displaysia

Before our puppies go to their new home, they are fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, wormed, sterilised and registered with Dogs West on the 'Limited Register'. You will also receive a puppy pack containing the food they are used to, a file packed with all the information you need along with 6 weeks of free puppy health insurance with PetPlan.
