Welsh Corgi Temperament
Welsh Corgis are for the most part never shy or vicious. They are known for their loyalty and their intelligence. Despite their small size, Welsh Corgis make great watchdogs as they will bark to alert their owners of a stranger’s approach. Some Corgis may bark a little too much, but this behavior can be managed via obedience training.
Corgis, like all herding breeds, may nip the heels of small children and animals in their attempts to herd them. Like the barking behavior, this natural behavior can be managed through obedience training in that they either learn not to do this or learn how to herd a specific kind of animal, like sheep.
Pembroke Welsh Corgi Temperament
One of the most noticeable features of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is that they are never shy. That is because the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was bred to herd animals many times larger then themselves. Although most Pembroke Welsh Corgis are now kept as pets, they still retain the same boldness and brains needed for their herding.
Because of this, their outlook tends to be bold yet at the same time kind. Pembroke Welsh Corgis are known to bond very closely with their owners. They are very loyal, intelligent, and are a very trainable breed since they love to please their people.
Cardigan Welsh Corgi Temperament
Cardigan Welsh Corgis are known for being even-tempered, loyal, affectionate, and adaptable. This breed loves to have fun and always wants to be involved with his family. They will also reward their family with devotion and lots of affection.
For this herding dog, caring for their people comes naturally to them. They are devoted, alert, and dependable. As a result, they can sometimes be distant with strangers and other dogs, especially if they perceive the stranger as a potential threat to themselves or to their people.
