Welsh legends say that fairies rode Welsh Corgis as steeds into battle, and this is why the breed has iconic saddle-shaped markings on their backs. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a favorite of the Queen of England, and she’s had 16 of them. With their fuzzy waddle and cheerful face, it’s hard not to fall in love. This is part of the reason they’re excellent family dogs, and we’ll outline other reasons below.

Welsh Corgi Breed History and Characteristics

Originating in Wales, this breed claims the title as one of the oldest herding breeds in the world, and you can trace their origins to 1107 AD. The American Kennel Club classifies them as a member of the Herding group, and they can grow between 25 and 27 pounds. They’re medium-energy, and they live between 11 and 13 years.

Corgis can adapt to both city and country living with few problems, and they’re flexible enough to handle changes in their lives. This makes them great family dogs, especially families that plan to expand and add kids.

Welsh Corgi Temperament

This dog’s stubborn disposition means you’ll need the patience to train them. However, they love to please their owners. This willingness makes this dog an eager student who is smart enough to grasp obedience training relatively quickly. They adore having and mastering tasks, and this makes teaching them new tricks and tasks fun and easy. You’ll get a very outgoing and strong personality with this breed, and this is what draws families to them.

Welsh Corgis and Their Families

Many families search for Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppies for sale when they start considering adding one of these dogs to their families. This breed has an excellent disposition, is highly affectionate, loyal, and they adore their families. Additionally, Corgis need to be around their humans the majority of the time to prevent destructive behaviors, and this is perfect for families who have children or stay-at-home moms.

They get along well with other animals, including livestock. Since they were originally bred to chase strays away from livestock, they make excellent watchdogs. They’ll guard kids, your home, and their families, and they have a big dog bark that is an excellent deterrent to any unwelcome visitors.

Bottom Line

Both large and small families can benefit from adding a Welsh Corgi to the mix. As long as you get them from a reputable breeder, you can get a happy, well-adjusted, and healthy puppy that will be a loyal companion for years to come.
