Before You Rescue... More About Caring for a Corgi

 Daily Care ​​
Pembrokes require a proper diet and regular medical care with yearly vaccinations for protection against diseases.  Owners who have taken proper care of their dogs are usually rewarded with their Pembrokes living a long and active life. Proper pet care also includes regular exercise, grooming, a regular check of the dog’s teeth (and brushing their teeth), and toenail trimming. Corgis are notorious for not liking to have their feet touched and nail trimming can be a challenge.  Do not let your Corgi get the better of you in this regard!  If you cannot trim the nails yourself, have your veterinarian do the nails.  Also, the hair between the pads of their feet needs to be trimmed regularly.

Your Pembroke has had bloodwork completed, has been spayed or neutered and has had all his/her shots completed by PWCCR Corgi Rescue. 

Corgis love to eat anything they can get away from you or your children.  Please do not allow your dog to become overweight. A thinner Corgi will live a longer life, free of health issues and back problems. If your dog is overweight, revert to the green bean diet that we discussed with you when you adopted the dog.  Avoid table scraps and extra treats; replace them with fresh vegetables or apples.  Never feed your dog grapes, raisins, or chocolate.


Pembrokes are energetic, highly intelligent herding dogs. They need to be exercised regularly and given a job to do. Too much inactivity just might cause him to think up unacceptable activities for himself. Basic obedience training is strongly recommended.  his training is best when it teaches you how to teach your dog. The time you spend in training, especially during the first year of your pet’s life, will be repaid many times over by giving you a well-behaved companion, one that is bonded to you and your family for the rest of his life.

Pembrokes can be seen in many areas of dog activities. This includes tracking, obedience, herding, agility, fly ball and rally.  ou can read more about these activities under PWC Activities. Pembrokes are also still used as working cattle dogs and are loyal family companions.
