Welsh Corgi: Cardigan


General information

  • Originated in Great Britain for use as a livestock herder. Bred to herd by snapping at the heels of the cattle, a common trait retained to this day.
  • Watchful and exuberant, it is not wholly reliable with children or other dogs, does not take readily to obedience training and requires little moderate exercise.
  • Size makes it suitable to the urban environment and it is a good watch dog.
