These cute, sturdy little creatures have such short legs that when they run it can seem that they bounce off the ground with their bellies to get an up-lift! The Welsh Corgi's teddy bear looks don't reflect their eagerness to work both mentally and physically.
They require long walks and daily outings, and their endurance will surprise you. They adjust well to any living situation - apartment, house or farm life - they can do it all as long as they get their daily exercise.
Welsh Corgis are confident little dogs that won't back down easily. They can assert their way, if they please to do so.
They bond very closely with their family and want to be part of any family activity. They don't cope well with being left at home alone for long periods of time.
Corgis are very playful and patient with kids and they make great watchdogs. They are very alert and their spiky fox-like ears certainly assist them to detect any noises.
If you decide to do agility or obedience sport with him, you will want to do more, just to see those cute little legs jumping. With this breed, there is sure to be lots of applause and cheering from the audience too!
