Corgipoo – A Guide to the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Poodle Mix
The term “corgi” refers to two different breeds: the pembroke Welsh cobbler dog (also known as a pembroke shepherd or pemmican dog) and the common poodle. They are both dogs from the same family, but they have been bred differently.
The pembroke Welsh cobbler dog was originally developed as a working breed for hunting small game such as rabbits and hares. It has since become popular with families because it is easy to train and very obedient. Its intelligence makes it a good companion dog, though not suitable for all homes due to its size. The pembroke shepherd is a smaller dog, which is ideal for children and those with small hands. It is intelligent enough to learn commands, but may still act stubbornly at times. Both dogs are loyal and affectionate towards their owners, though the pembroke shepherd tends to be friendlier than the corgi.
Both breeds make excellent companions for people with allergies or other sensitivities. They are also smart enough to learn tricks and small chores without much trouble.
The dogs require regular exercise and mental stimulation, otherwise they will get bored and start to misbehave. Both dogs shed moderately and require regular grooming. However, they are less likely to cause an allergic reaction in people with dog dander allergies than other breeds such as a golden retriever or rottweiler.
The pembroke Welsh cobbler dog is often confused with the similar-looking Cardigan Welsh cobbler dog. The two breeds are actually quite different despite their similar appearances.
The pembroke was originally developed in Pembrokeshire, Wales from the now-extinct Welsh corgi (a dog bred for hunting). It is often called a cobbler’s dog due to its short legs which make it easier to climb through tunnels and under fences. It was primarily bred to hunt small animals such as rabbits and foxes, though it is also a good ratter and will keep the rodent population under control. It stands at 10-12 inches in height and weighs between 13-17 pounds. It has a thick, weather-resistant double coat and a long, straight tail which is heavily coated with hair. It has a short muzzle with a black nose, though lighter-colored dogs are preferred. It has a docked or bobbed tail. The ears are naturally erect, but are often cropped as a show of pedigree. Its chest is broad and its legs are longer than its body to allow it to flow through tunnels easily. It often appears in paintings by English artists.
The pembroke shepherd dog is very easy to recognize due to its thick, curly white coat and bright tan points (ears, nose, feet, and tail). It has a distinctive, easy going nature which makes it a popular pet with both families and farmers.
It was originally developed in Pembrokeshire, Wales by breeding a standard poodle with a corgi. The name was changed to Pembroke Welsh corgi in 1974 in an effort to give it more distinction from the cardigan, but it is still often called a poodle cross or a corgi-poodle mix. This breed stands between 10-12 inches and weighs between 18-27 pounds. Its double coat is thick, weather-resistant, and either curly (with a well-defined curl) or wavy. It has a long, straight tail which is heavily coated with hair. It has a broad chest and a distinct stop. Its ears are naturally erect, though they are often cropped to avoid damage while working in tight tunnels. Its muzzle is fairly long and its legs are longer than its body to allow it to flow through tunnels easily.
Its temperament is friendly, gentle, and easy going, though it may be a bit stubborn at times. It has a good work ethic and enjoys learning new tricks.
It gets along well with children and other dogs, though males may sometimes become aggressive towards other male dogs. It does not tend to bark excessively, but does have a loud alarm bark. It prefers to spend most of the day outside and does best with a yard, but does require regular exercise. It may become destructive if it doesn’t get the mental stimulation it requires. Its natural endurance allows it to work all day without tiring. It is loyal to its family and will defend them if necessary. The pembroke shepherd dog is widely used by farmers to protect livestock from predators such as coyotes, foxes, and cats. It is a naturally efficient ratter and will keep the rodent population under control. Its easy going nature allows it to get along with all the animals on the farm except pests like rats and mice.
It currently ranks at #78 out of 194 in popularity on dog ranker’s list of popular dog breeds . Its friendly, easy going nature, and loyal attitude allows it to do well in most environments.
It thrives in suburban environments where it can get adequate exercise. Though it does well in farming communities where it can work alongside its owners. It is not recommended for apartment living due to its size and active nature.
It is important to note that some smaller farms may still refer to this dog breed as a poodle.
Who did what?
