Pembroke Welsh Corgi Characteristics
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are the Queen of England’s favorite dog! It doesn't get much better than that. Intelligent and active, but still fairly small, these Corgis make a great fit for any living environment. They’re also adorable with their gorgeous coloring, cute stubby legs, and huge inquisitive ears. They are easy to train and are great with children. Note that Corgis are frequent shedders and require regular grooming to keep looking their best.
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are purebred dogs that were originally bred to herd sheep, horses, and cattle. They are the smallest breed in the American Kennel Club’s Herding Group.
Corgis are best known for their short stubby legs and clever, fox-like faces. They have thick coats that come in a range of different colors including black, brown, liver, white, and red. They will shed regularly and require weekly grooming.
For a small breed, Corgis have a lot of energy. Regular exercise will help them stay physically and mentally sharp. A long walk around the neighborhood or romp in the yard is a great way to bond with your Corgi and make sure she stays healthy and happy.
Corgis are highly adaptable and can thrive in any living environment, whether it’s an apartment or large home. They generally get along with everyone, but their herding instinct can lead them to nip at kids’ ankles or other dogs when playing.
Corgis are rather vocal dogs, and you might feel a bit like they bark at everything. But not to worry – they’re easy to train and typically respond best to being rewarded with food. (Don’t we all!)
Corgis are a medium-sized breed. They can grow to weigh between 22 and 31 pounds and 10 to 12 inches in height. They are usually quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 12 to 13 years.
How dog-friendly is Colorado?
Colorado, like the land itself, has a lot of highs and lows when it comes to dog-friendliness.
Two very different studies on pet safety
Pawsafe surprisingly ranks the state as the 8th least pet-friendly in the country. The study evaluates several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. While this ranking is low, there are few areas where the state excels. Pawsafe ranked Colorado 3rd for animal welfare laws and 4th for available pet services.
Safewise conducted a similar study and came to a much different conclusion. In their analysis, they found Colorado to be the 14th most pet-friendly state. Safewise notes that only 25% of rentals in Colorado are pet-friendly, which may be why Pawsafe ranked Colorado so low.
Are cities in Colorado pet-friendly?
A WalletHub study ranked the nation’s 100 largest cities for their performance with pet-friendly criteria. In their study, two Colorado cities were among the top 20 pet-friendly cities!
The highest-ranking city was Denver, which ranked 16th. This ranking is driven by a 7th position for pet health and wellness.
SmartAsset has a similar study in which they rank the largest cities by pet-friendliness. They ranked Denver 10th for pet-friendliness. Their study found the city to have 250 dog-friendly shopping centers, among the highest in the country.
A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study shows that Denver has the 24th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.8 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
The city of Aurora, right next to Denver, has the 45th most dog parks per capita, with 1.1 per 100,000 residents.
Colorado Springs ranked 18th overall in the WalletHub study. The city scored well for pet budget and outdoor pet-friendliness.
Colorado Springs also has a high number of parks per resident. The study found Colorado Springs to be right behind Denver with 1.7 per resident.
A few more pet-friendly statistics for Colorado
Only 27% of Colorado residents own a dog. This is far below the national average of 40%. The 47% overall pet ownership rate is also well below the national average.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Colorado are German Shepherds, Goldens, and Labrador Retrievers. These are loyal, energetic working dogs, great for farming, outdoor activities, and family life.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Colorado
Colorado is one of the best states for animal welfare. The state saved 81,044 dogs and cats during 2020. Out of 74 animal shelters, 66 have a no-kill policy. The overall save rate for the state is 89%, one of the highest in the country. Good job, Colorado!
