Fall is here which means it is time to update your corgi’s daily regimen for the colder months ahead.
Be sure your corgi is safe this season by following these tips:
Your corgi should be groomed regularly to maintain their coat and overall health. It is best to establish a regular grooming routine with a professional.
Be sure to brush your corgi’s coat weekly to keep him or her clean and comfortable. Be sure to check their skin in between grooming for eczema, dry skin, or infections.
Update Allergy / Flea & Tick Medication
If your puppy suffers from seasonal allergies, be sure to update their medication this autumn. Your vet may recommend Benadryl or another allergy medication or specific grooming tips that can help.
Check Food & Water
This may sound obvious, but it is key to make sure your corgi has fresh, clean food and water at all times. If you keep a water dish outside, be sure to check it regularly and change it whenever needed. For puppies, you may also want to consider slightly increasing the amount of food you feed them in the fall/winter to help him or her stay warm, which requires more energy. Be sure to consult your vet before changing your dog’s diet.
While you may want to lounge around more the house more than usual this season, it is extremely important that your corgi receives proper exercise. Because they are prone to becoming overweight it is easier for them to pack on a few pounds this season. Even if you have a short game of chase, or fetch around the house for 15 minutes this will help give them a chance to release some energy and burn some of those corgi calories!
