Cardigan Welsh Corgi was originally bred in the same family of dogs that produced the Basset Hound and the Dachshund. The first Cardigan Welsh Corgi was shown at an English dog show in 1919. This breed is a family companion and a show dog with an easygoing personality. Cardigans make excellent watchdogs, and they can easily become reserved with strangers. If they experience anything that is unusual, you may notice sounds from them. Cardigans are very intelligent dogs, and therefore they can be trained very easily. This breed loves children, but they have the herding instinct that can lead them to nip a young child’s feet or ankle. But with the right training, they can easily learn this is not the right behavior. They are usually friendly with other pets around the household; however, they can be aggressive with other dogs that are not part of the family. The size of the Cardigan is about 10.5 to 12.5 inches, and it weighs about 25 to 38 pounds.
