How to Care for Your Pembroke Welsh Corgi

Getting a new puppy can be exciting and overwhelming. When adding a new member to your family it is important to know how to care for your new pup.

Find a Reputable Breeder

Before adopting a pup be sure that you are purchasing from a reputable source. Do not purchase from a pet store or puppy mill because these places have been known to treat dogs poorly. Puppy mills breed dogs without properly caring for them because they are more concerned with making money than the health of the animal. Because you expect your dog to live for at least over a decade, you want to ensure that you are getting a healthy puppy from the start.

After finding the right dog, it is recommended you take them to the vet around 2 weeks after you bring them home.

Physical Care/ General Facts

Be sure to make sure your corgi is getting enough exercise. Corgis typically weigh between 25 and 27 pounds and stand 10 to 12.5 inches tall. Because of their short height and stout bodies, they are more prone to becoming overweight. Corgis are very intelligent, active and animated dogs.

Feeding Your Corgi

A Corgi’s diet should consist of proteins and good fat. To ensure that your dog food is the best choice for your pup make sure you thoroughly read the ingredients. Petsafe has a more conclusive list of dog food ingredients to avoid.

Because puppies are growing they will require more calorie intake than an adult dog. Be sure to monitor your dog’s diet and adjust as they grow.
