  • Care

    Pembroke Welsh Corgis have waterproof double coats that require regular grooming. Brush them at least once per week to remove loose hair and prevent shedding. During seasonal shedding periods in the spring and summer, regular baths and daily brushing with an undercoat rake will help loosen excess hair. Keep their ears clean, and their nails trimmed. Pembroke Welsh Corgis benefit from a regular dental care routine that includes at-home teeth-brushing and professional cleanings.

    Feed Pembroke Welsh Corgis a high-quality dog food that is appropriate for their life stage (e.g., puppy, adult, senior). This breed may easily become overweight. In addition to other health concerns, weight strains their long backs, potentially leading to disc problems. To avoid overfeeding, portion out their food with a measuring cup and limit treats to no more than 10% of their daily calories.
