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. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Determined

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is believed to have existed in Wales over 3,000 years ago and is much older than the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. HIstorically, these Corgis were bred as cattle herders, but nowadays they love relaxing and playing with their families and are active, fun-loving playmates for children and other pets.
 
Standing slightly taller than their Pembroke counterpart, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi stands around 10-12 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 22-31 pounds. Apart from being a little bit larger, the Cardigan can be easily identified by its long flowing tail and different shaped ears. Both breeds of Corgi are notorious shedders, so frequent brushing and grooming will be necessary to keep stray hair to a minimum around the house. The Cardigan comes in merle, red, blue, and other colored coats.
 
After seeing a Corgi, people are often surprised to learn of their herding heritage. As a result, these dogs have an abundance of energy and a strong desire for purpose. Providing your corgi with ample daily exercise will be crucial to prevent bad behavior within the house. These dogs also enjoy training for agility or obedience games, which helps provide mental stimulation as well as physical exercise. 
 
Finally, the Corgi tends to overeat if left unsupervised, so meal planning and exercise are the necessary one-two punch for keeping your Corgi at a healthy weight.
 

How dog-friendly is Montana?

Montana is a great place for dogs, especially in the summer – with gorgeous outdoor space and plenty of room for adventure. 


The state ranks pretty consistently in the average range for overall pet-friendliness but has great strengths in animal welfare and dog-friendly attractions. 


We reviewed two significant studies that rank all 50 states by pet-friendly factors. The first, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Montana as the 34th most pet-friendly state. 


The second, by consumer safety review site Safewise, ranked Montana quite low at 45th.


The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. However, because of its harsh winters, and less access to pet services in rural areas, Montana took a hit. 


Combining these two studies together put Montana towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
