Once upon a time, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi was originally used as a herding dog. From sheep to cows, this little rascal did it all! Nowadays, this may not be an activity that the breed is well known for; however, if you are interested in this activity or have the need for a herding dog job, the Pembroke will be more than up to the task. With a bit of training and guidance, this peppy breed can fall right back into the paw prints of their ancestors and assist with getting that livestock in line. This is a great bonding experience and even if you don't use it as a real job for your dog, the Pembroke will have a great time burning off energy in this way.
Although the Pembroke has rather small legs, that doesn't slow the breed down any! Going for long walks or a brisk jog every day is an excellent way to help burn off energy and keep your dog in shape. Just keep in mind that while the Pembroke Welsh Corgi may believe he can go forever, their small legs don't allow them to be as capable as say, a Siberian Husky. So get your running shoes on and go for some great exercise, just pay attention to what your Pembroke is telling you so that everyone can benefit from the activity as much as possible!
If you were feeling down on your luck, don't you think seeing an adorable little Corgi would boost your spirits? That's what we think too! Pembroke Welsh Corgis have big ears and a big personality to match. Even though they can be a bit wily and can be stubborn from time to time, they are an extremely intelligent breed with a lot of affection to give. Because of this, Corgis are a great breed to take on pet visitations. Their small size and fluffy coat make them perfect for cuddling while their smiling faces can lift even the saddest heart. So if you are looking for an easy and free activity to do with your Corgi, visiting the sick or elderly may be a great thing to look into.
