Pembroke Welsh Corgi
My husband and I have wanted a corgi puppy for what seems like forever but living in NYC without a car made it difficult to find options. PuppySpot made the process quick and easy and they brought Bagel (our amazing little puppy) to us with an awesome starter pack, a microchip, all his vet papers, and a health check just before. The customer service was amazing and you can really tell how much they care about finding these puppies the right home. If we get another puppy down the line, I will...
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 Connecticut?
Connecticut has always been a good place for dogs, but the state has given even more effort recently to create a welcoming environment for pet-owners and dog-lovers.
Pawsafe, a trusted source for dog safety ratings, ranked Connecticut 21st for pet friendliness. They also placed Connecticut fifth for the number of pet services available throughout the state and 11th best for pet-friendly accommodations.
In recent years, Connecticut has increased the number of pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and other establishments. If you want to bring your pet with you when you travel, you won’t have trouble finding a place to stay overnight or to dine out.
Pet-friendly rentals in Connecticut
A similar study from Safewise gave Connecticut a less glowing review. They graded the state 39th for pet-friendliness. One of the main reasons they rated the state this low is the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 9%. That’s very low compared to other states.
Additionally, only 24% of Connecticut residents own a dog, which is far below the national average of 40%. In fact, it’s second to last for dog ownership in the United States. In contrast, the state’s total pet ownership percentage is well above the national average with 50% of Connecticut families owning a pet. Maybe Connecticut is more of a cat person?
A few more pet-friendly statistics in Connecticut
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC) the most popular dogs in the state are large, active, family-friendly breeds: German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Labrador Retrievers. Hartford’s most popular dog breeds include Huskies, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles. Clearly Connecticut loves a companion for the whole family.
Connecticut has 1.4 dog parks per 100,000 residents. There are also many laws and statutes to create a pet-friendly environment. The state doesn't mandate that dogs remain on a leash at all times, as long as you don’t let your dog wander onto another person’s property.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Connecticut
