The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is better known as Welsh Corgi who originated in Wales. There are two types of Cardies: the other, maybe even more popular Corgi is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

How to separate them? The quickest way is to look at the tail: Cardigans have tails, Pembrokes don’t. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is one of the oldest known breeds.

Dog experts claim that this breed has a long line of at least 3,000 years. They have a very noticeable appearance of short height, sturdy bone, short legs, and a deep chest.

They are famous for having red to the popular blue-merle pattern. They may be cute, but they are super-hard workers of great speed and grace.

Cardigan Welsh Corgi usually weights up to 34 pounds and should be on a strict diet, since they are foodies and as such prone to obesity. Cardies are highly trainable and faithful dogs with a ‘big dog’ bark and attitude.

When socialized the right way and trained properly, they are great with children and other pets. These small dogs are passionate outdoor lovers and will love nothing more but following you outside.

They are extremely fond of children, although children should be educated on how to behave around them, and not to treat them as toys. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi will also do fine with other pets.
