Cardigan Welsh Corgi Breed Maintenance
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi tends to shed often and heavily throughout the year, and to the extreme twice a year. This is because of their thick, medium length double coat. In order to try and keep the shedding to a more manageable amount, brushing should take place weekly using tools such as a shedding blade and slicker brush. Thankfully, the Cardigan’s coat repels dirt and doesn’t have an odor, so other than brushing, the coat is easy to maintain and frequent bathing isn’t necessary. Besides brushing, it is important to keep your dog’s nails trimmed and his ears cleaned. This will ensure that his feet stay healthy and comfortable and no ear infections set in. Due to the fact that the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has upright, alert ears, there isn’t a high of a risk of the ears getting too moist; however, it is better to frequently check for things such as ticks and other mites in order to keep the ears as healthy as possible.
