Corgis 101: Raising Your Corgi Puppy, the Basics

Welsh Corgis of both the Pembroke and Cardigan breeds are stumpy little working dogs. You wouldn’t know it by looking at them, but they are powerful squat sheepherders. This fact alone makes them eager to please, hard working and usually high energy dogs. They require a lot of exercise, along with training in order to thrive. When we first got our corgi puppy, I was terrified that I wasn’t going to be a good owner, trainer and all around dog mom. I did my research and found an excellent breeder which I discussed in my article, “Finding a responsible breeder”. I bought some wrong things and some right things, which I highlighted in my last article, “Shopping for your corgi puppy”. When it came to raising a puppy, I had no experience other than what I could remember from my childhood. You see, we’ve always adopted, so we never really raised puppies. Thankfully we live in a world where YouTube exists and the Internet it abundant with information so that made my experience a lot easier.

Corgis 101: Shopping for your puppy

It’s time, it’s time! You’ve brought your corgi puppy home, now what? Depending on your beeder, your puppy will be between 6 to 8 weeks old when it comes home. The average weight a corgi can get is usually between 22 to 31 pounds, and sometimes larger. Preparing your home for a puppy feels a lot like human nesting in various ways. You’ll need to keep your puppy safe, prepare for potty training and begin buying things you’ll need to raise your puppy.
