Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: Cheers for Bug the Cardigan Welsh Corgi
We always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige. Thanks Julie for submitting Bug, your Cardigan Welsh Corgi to be featured in our series.
Hey furiends, say "Hi' to Bug, a 5 year old Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Bug loves herding and working in general. He really loves the Himalyan Dog Chews! Herd on over to his blog!
Height: 10.5-12.5 inches
Weight: Male 30-38 lbs; Female 25-34 lbs
Coat: Cardigan Welsh Corgi coat is medium length but dense as it is double. Outer hairs slightly harsh in texture; never wiry, curly or silky. Lies relatively smooth and is weather resistant. The insulating undercoat is short, soft and thick
Color: Cardigan Welsh Corgis can be any shade of red, sable, or brindle; they can also be black with or without tan brindle or blue merle with or without tan or brindle points. They usually have white on the neck, chest, legs, muzzle, underneath, tip of the tail, and as a blaze on the head, known as the "Irish pattern." Other markings include ticking on the legs and muzzle, smutty muzzles, monk's hoods, and others. A few other unofficial colors can occur, such as red merle.
Appearance: The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a long, low dog (low set with moderately heavy bone and deep chest) with upright ears and a bottle brush tail. The old American Kennel Club standard called it an "Alsatian on short legs". The Cardigan's tail is long (unlike the Pembroke Welsh corgi, whose tail may be long, short, naturally bobbed or docked)
Temperament: The Cardigan Welsh Corgi equals big personality in a little dog. These are intelligent, active, alert little guys who will want to be the center of your world. They love to be with their families, and will shower you with loyalty, devotion and affection. They need daily exercise and love to take long walks with you. They are intelligent and eager to please and do great with obedience training. They excel in obedience, agility, flyball, Frisbee, herding, and tracking competitions. They get along very well with respectful children, but parents need to be aware that Corgis might try to herd kids. (They also might try to herd other animals and your houseguests.) Most Corgis like to be with other cats and dogs. They are adaptable dogs and can live anywhere as long as they get walked, but they do like to bark, so close neighbors might object. While personalities differ within the breed, in general, the Corgi is even-tempered, hardy, friendly, loyal and loving. And they are always full of fun.
Health: The Life expectancy for Cardigan Welsh Corgi is 12-15 years. Cardigan Welsh Corgis are prone to glaucoma and PRA and should not be overfed. The most common cause of death for the breed was cancer, old age and neurological disorders
