Cairn Corgi Breed Maintenance
The Cairn Corgi is not a hypoallergenic dog and sheds moderately, given its parent breeds. The medium hair requires daily brushing to prevent tangles and mats and to remove dirt and debris that clings to the coat. Regular ear cleaning with a veterinarian approved solution will help to avoid ear infections in your Cairn Corgi and brush your dog’s teeth at least twice a week to prevent dental disease and keep his mouth clean. The Cairn Corgi does not drool much at all and keeping his coat and teeth clean with help with any “doggy” odor that might arise; though this mix is not known to smell. Cairn Corgis can resemble either the Cairn Terrier or the Welsh Corgi and have medium to high energy with moderate intensity needs. This mix requires daily exercise of moderate intensity. They are smart dogs, but the Cairn Terrier parent added elements of independence and stubbornness, which makes the Cairn Corgi a little harder to train if he resembles the Welsh Corgi.
