Cardigan Welsh Corgi
We had been wanting a corgi puppy for a long time but when we were ready to have a dog, no local breeders had litters available. Enter puppyspot. We love our little guy who arrived in perfect health. There were some bumps in the road getting him here due to the pandemic but puppyspot was committed to constant process improvement. If you are looking for a specific breed of dog and have a specific timeline for getting a puppy, I recommend this service.
Cardigan Welsh Corgi Characteristics
While not as popular as the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is still a herding dog turned loving family companion. These dogs are a hit everywhere they go, and early socialization and obedience training will ensure your Corgi makes new friends every day. Their intelligent personalities and desire to please make them very trainable, even for novice dog parents.
How dog-friendly is Louisiana?
Louisiana is a wonderful state for dogs and their humans to live and travel! The state ranks consistently higher than its neighbor, Mississippi, as well.
A few regular studies help us rank the 50 states by pet-friendliness. Two reputable studies rank all 50 states according to factors like animal cruelty laws, pet services, pet-friendly living, dog parks, hiking trails, and more.
The first study comes from the animal advocacy group Pawsafe. They rank Louisiana as the 24th most pet-friendly state. The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
The second study comes from the safety review site Safewise. THey ranked Louisiana a little bit higher, as the 18th most pet-friendly state in the country.
Overall, these two rankings set Louisiana in a solid, healthy spot for pet-friendliness.
Are cities in Louisiana pet-friendly?
We also keep an eye on a study by Wallethub that reviews the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness.
New Orleans is Louisiana’s biggest city with a population of nearly 400,000. Wallethub ranked New Orleans in the 10th spot overall out of 100! The city ranked 34th in pet budget and 10th in pet health and wellness, but slightly lower at 44th in outdoor pet-friendliness – mostly due to the heat and humidity.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study ranked New Orleans 58th for dog parks compared to the 100 other largest cities. New Orleans has 0.8 dog parks per 100,000 people.
The top dog-friendly attractions in this very popular tourist destination are Ghost City Tours and Metairie Cemetery.
