Canis ISSN: 2398-2942 Welsh Corgi: Cardigan Introduction Biological Data Introduction 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.
