SO MUCH EAR FEATHERS!!

Thank you for all the lovely corgi photos! So i'm hoping to adopt a corgi really soon. I've been researching over a year, now own my own home, have a fenced in backyard that will be checked over(I don't underestimate the ability of a corgi puppy to squeeze through a hole!). My only confusion is, how do corgis do with cats? If raised with them from a young age, does that work? I would love any tips! I found a breeder nearby and will be emailing her soon.

Corgis and cats live together in relative peace often! Sometimes they even become the best of snuggly friends (or you know, don’t outright murder each other)! Sometimes the cats have utter disdain for their stumpy roommates, but it can happen.  Make sure that your cat has somewhere that they can go to be free of the new puppy, a “cats only safe haven,” make sure you pay attention to your feline friend so they don’t feel ignored, and introduce your cat and your corgi slowly.  Make sure to work on a solid “leave it” or some other command to curb your pup from trying to herd or wrestle a cat that just isn’t having it.

Some cats take better to dogs than others, some never really learn to “love” their new corgsiblings, but with a little work and a little patience you should be able to make it work or at the very least live in peace!

is it true that if you shave a corgi their hair grows back in really patchy? Mine is shedding so badly and I've wanted to shave her but wasn't sure. Thanks!

Hi!

Thanks for asking and I hope this message finds you before you do anything drastic with your corgi.  First of all, shedding is part and parcel of sharing your life with a corgi.  It’s been said that they blow coat only twice a year — but that twice a year really means July-December and January-June :p

That said, first look at whether or not anything has changed in your household or your corgi’s life.  Any extra stressors? Changes in environment? Or severe change in diet?  Things like stress, illness, dietary changes can effect how your pet sheds, and how much.  After that, how often do you groom/brush your corgi?  I’d say once a week at BARE MINIMUM if you’re not already regularly grooming.  

Now, regarding shaving the corgs, you should NEVER DO IT.  Unless there is a case of extreme matting, or a skin condition that requires access for medical treatment repeat after me: NEVER SHAVE A CORGI.

This is true of all double-coated dogs.  I know it may seem like a lot of fur, but it has a purpose and helps keep your dog warm in the winter and, believe it or not, cool in the summer.  Remember, dogs cannot sweat like humans do, so they rely on different means of regulating body temperature.

Now, you may come across someone who says “oh, but I shaved my corgi and it was fine!” Well, bully for them.  But you have to think what is truly best for your dog and their well-being.  

Shedding is something you sign up for when you welcome a corgi into your life, it’s not so bad, really.  But please, do not shave your corgi.
