My New Corgi Puppy Helping Mow My Lawn

Le dans «misc» par Yetta

I recently got a Corgi puppy, and she is so spunky and full of life. It's been so great having a dog around, since mine passed away six months ago. I didn't think I'd ever be able to get another one because I was so devastated. My mom talked me into it finally, and I'm glad she did.

I just call her 'my little rascal' for now, but I guess I should get to a permanent name soon. Every time I mow the lawn with my electric lawn mower, she loves rolling around in the freshly cut grass. It's so cute and it makes me happy to watch her.

I can't let her out until I'm done though because she tries to bite the cord I have to use. After I put everything away, she runs around and I toss things for her to run after and catch. This is going to be another great pet relationship, I can tell!

Pembroke Welsh Corgi Dog Breed

Le dans «misc» par Yetta

Well known for their avid competitiveness in many sports, Pembroke is a low-set and sturdy built dog breed. Ranked number eleven in Stanley Coren’s ''The Intelligence of Dogs'', this is one of the best and most popular breeds of dogs.

 

History

The origin of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi dates back to 1107 AD. It is believed that when the Vikings and Flemish weavers were travelling to reside in Whales, they brought the dogs with them. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is the oldest of the two breeds and is believed to have been used to develop Pembroke in Whales, Pembrokeshire. The Cardigan and the Pembrokeshire were interbred and were considered to be the same breed. However, in 1943, a show judge separated them into two different breeds after seeing that they were very different. After the separation, Pembroke became more popular and was even the first to be recognized by the ACK in 1935.

 

Characteristics

Low to the ground, sturdy, and very strong,  Pembrokes posses a much shorter body. Their ears are pointed at the tip and stand erect. They posses short, weatherproof coats with a color that changes from rich red or fawn to either black or sable with white marks. Although they reach their full size about a year after birth, some will keep growing until they are two or three years old. A fully grown Pembroke is about 10 to 12 inches tall and weighs 23 to 28 pounds. 

 

Personalities

Pembrokes are very intelligent and are known for having a happy and loving nature. Although they have a stubborn streak at times, they like to please their owner and it is very easy to train them. Due to their love for eating, food is always a great motivator in their training. Since they are very suspicious of strangers and will bark when they feel someone is threatening their home, they also make good watch dogs.

Feeding

Because of their high activity and metabolic rate, Pembrokes like to eat and may over indulge if not watched. The recommended daily food is three quarters  to one and a half cups of high quality dry food. It is advisable to divide this into two meals and feed them twice a day instead of leaving the food out all the time. 

Living Conditions

Pembrokes are very easy at adapting to life in the country or the city. As long as they are given sufficient exercise, they will do well in an apartment. They can also do well in most climates regardless of their weather resistant coats. 

Care

Pembrokes were bred to be herding dogs and are very active athletic and fast. Since they are naturally active, they should be encouraged to remain active by taking them out daily for a long walk. Since they have short legs and long backs, they should not be made to hop up or down  for any height since they can get fractures. Pembrokes are very friendly and people oriented, so you don't need to always leave them in the backyard alone. They have a very high affinity for children and are eager to learn. They have herding instincts and may sometimes nip at feet and ankles, so children should be taught how to approach and touch them. Just like all dogs, Pembrokes should be exposed to different people and experiences earlier to ensure they grow up well rounded.
