Your Relationship With Your Welsh Corgi

All corgi owners can give different reasons for why they own dogs. Others may show enthusiasm that corgis are their best friends and best companions; others nonchalantly raised dogs to guard their house and belongings; others got themselves more than one to be trained for shows; and others intentionally owned a dog to guide their ways so they can walk along busy streets. Surprisingly, many others will express unlikely expectations in raising corgis as their pets. Nevertheless, no matter how impossible their beliefs in dogs, these animals can become more beneficial to men than any other material possessions.

Adorable dogs and puppies are charming animals to pet. Not only there are costs involve in raising puppies, but there are emotional investments as well. Bonding with these domesticated animals is more valuable than exhausting personal finances. Fitting corgis into your lifestyle is both a challenge and pleasure.

It becomes easier and more comfortable to own a corgi in the house once you understand your dog. Their needs, wants, temperaments, and their potential behaviours are to be considered. Humans and dogs can have the best interaction and relationship. Though corgis are not complete substitute for humans, but they are best for specific reasons. There are popular stories printed in papers and shown in televisions where dogs instinctively save human lives at stake like drowning, getting lost in deep woods, a child coming face to face with a poisonous snakes, etc.

Accepting and appreciating your corgis depends wholly on you as the owner. This is a good start to provide full care to your dogs. Their health and development will depend entirely on how they are treated.

Naturally, corgis identify their social positions in packs. Being part of a family or being owned by someone identifies their position in the hierarchy. They would feel secure and confident as they sense respect in a given environment. It will help your dog if all the members of your family treat him the same way you do. If he gets different treatment from each one, he tends to get confused and may behave differently.

Consistent training and discipline from all may convey the message to the corgi when he can act as a child, when to be an adult, his time to eat, play, stay out of the house when needed, where to pee, where to relieve his waste, or how to treat other people. As humans grow and develop so do corgis to certain degrees. They respond according to how they are cared for as well.

In cases of unlikely behaviours for some corgis may be perceived that they are not happy with their owners. Most often than not, these owners thinks that the dogs they have are psychologically or neurologically disturbed, when in fact 95% of the reason is because on how they treat and feed them.

Your Corgi Dog’s Sensory Perceptions

Welsh Corgis, to some degrees and considerations, are living creatures similar to human beings. They breathe, play, eat, run, walk, sleep, and learn. They do not merely exist as machines or rather non-interacting mammals. Behaviourists convince the world that dogs are more than just animals that are confined in their own world. They go beyond building links and connections with the human world.


Their past experiences influences thought patterns that allows them to behave as they are asked to do. Corgis also have their own nervous systems at work which are responsible to analyze and collect data. They possess sense of smell, sense of hearing, sense of sight, sense of taste, sense of balance, sense of well-being, and sense of time.


Corgis are known to have excellent memory of odors. They are keen to use their noses to identify lost or stolen things. They remember the scents more than by looking at them. They are best in identifying distinct and arduous smells.


Much as they have good sense of smell, they are more or less sharp with their sense of hearing. They pick up vibrations even at the farthest distance. They react to coming dangers ahead than humans just by sensing sound waves. They are quicker to identify commands through different tones by their owners or masters. Using the voice to make a corgi obey is one good tool.


Corgis are also visual. Humans can communicate with them through movements. They can identify body language and human behaviours as long as they come in patterns. They can sense when a person or other animals are ready to attack them. Their responses are determined on how they visually perceive the environment. They can identify eye contacts from their master or owners. They know when they show love or expresses reproofs.


Your corgis can also identify the kind of food being fed to them. There are dogs which are developed into healthy pet and trained mammals by the kind of diet they eat. As they become used to a specific flavours, they may feel discriminated if they will be given another menu.


Other sensory perceptions are results of the corgis’ mental traits. Socially, dogs identify their positions in packs. They also have that sense of belongingness since they have natural instincts to hold position in a hierarchy. They behave in aggressive manners when they feel threatened and dominated. They also have the sense of balance wherein they can learn given a patterned behaviour. When they are taught on how to behave properly, every word uttered should only be said once, otherwise the proceeding ones becomes too many for them.


Corgis grow. Puppies need to be fed by their mother at a particular span of time and at regular intervals. The warmth of their mothers helps in their complete development. They have the luxury to snuggle. The only activities they know are being fed on their mother’s milk and take a nap. As they grow they play with their littermates. At the proper time they become independent and can live on their own. As to becoming a pet, they are ready to have their own new family.

Seeing Life From Your Welsh Corgi Dog’s Perspective

pembroke welsh corgi understanding your dog One of the best ways to appreciate and bond deeply with your corgi is see things from his own perspective. We may react and interpret our dog’s behaviour differently because we fail to understand the impact of our instructions or a certain experience to him. Odd behaviours may constantly surface because of some traumatic events in the past which dictates his unnatural behaviours.


An individual may intend to be friendly but that person’s behaviour can be extremely threatening to him. To understand that corgis are naturally not crazy, psychologically imbalanced, or insecure- you will know that the display of an aggressive behaviour must be because of external factors. It might be difficult to zero-in aggressiveness because of its given complexities, but basically, from the dog’s perspective, they will not behave otherwise if they are not threatened. There might be exceptions, but only rarely will they act as one because of disease or sickness.


Although Cardigan and Pembroke corgis are known to be friendly breeds, individual dogs can become aggressive because their social status is challenged. They have gotten used with their social position. Once they sense that they are losing control over it and their social interactions with others are weakened, then they tend to behave what they are not trained to. Their human families who accepted them as their very own, is what they consider their pack. He remains unchallenged if you put him at a certain status where he knows he belongs. But when he get used with the idea of him being above you, his natural instinct to dominate the “hierarchy” will lead him to challenge you at certain point in time. It is best to identify how to communicate effectively to these canines. There might be chances or situations wherein you are interfering with their social status and thus challenging them with their social positions.


A corgi with a dominant individuality will give you his deep growl when you have disturbed his sleep, or automatically bite you when you accidentally stepped on his tail while resting. Even when you attempted to hug your dog with such behaviour may find it uncomfortable and unpleasant because he feels that you are physically restraining him. Reaching his collar over his head may stimulate aggressive and surprising behaviour because you become more dominant than him.


There can also be instances when your corgi suddenly bites you when you were about to throw a stick for him to pick up. He was alarmed and instinctively protected himself because his perspective may be to that of you hitting him with something. Your intention may be different from his own perceptions. This kind of behaviour is rather identified to becoming aggressive because of fear. He may also react unusually when there are other dogs approaching him, or gives him a surprise and sudden visit.


These dogs however, can become extra friendly when they are not threatened by anything else. They are best described by dog lovers as Jekyll and Hydes, because of sudden shift of behaviours. At one point in time they are adorable that melts your heart but can suddenly turn fierce.

Identifying Your Corgi’s Personality

Why Finding Your Corgi’s Personality Is Important

Besides what every corgi personality normally has, energetic, loving, and playful, every corgi has other traits to make their personality unique. Any attempt to train or instruct a corgi not on the basis of their individuality is not likely to succeed. As a corgi owner you have to be keen enough to identify what type of mannerism and behavior your dog has. In this case, you will be able to tailor your treatment towards him and meet his specific needs and wants. You can properly motivate and effectively teach him some good manners or teach him to unlearn some of those bad ones.

How To Identify Your Corgi’s Personality

Your corgis can sense the way you value and respect them. As you recognize their individuality they will understand their place and role in your home, neighborhood, and environment. They possess the natural instinct to live in packs. And for them to know where they are in your everyday routine and lifestyle, they behave comfortably and confidently. Canines become aggressive and threatening if they are treated as one, while those that are treated in a friendly and loving manner behave accordingly.

You can also identify your corgi’s behavior when he meets with other dogs, probably of different breeds. Corgis interact with other dogs. Their body language will show it. Wagging of stubs or tails may show fondness. Low growls, raised ears, exposed sharp teeth may indicate they are threatened. They, themselves, can sense when there is a bad or good chemistry between one of their kinds. There are dogs that don’t like sudden greetings by suspicious unfriendly ones.

Be careful when your corgi wants to play with other dogs. Like a person, your corgi is a thinking, breathing creature who could suddenly have “bad chemistry” with another dog. Don’t wait for a dogfight to find out – learn how to read your ‘s body language. Plus, even if your corgi loves all other dogs, an unsuspecting not-as-friendly dog will not appreciate a sudden greeting.

When Your Corgi’s Personality Develops

Growing pups are like human babies that experience stages and changes. They also explore, get curious, and can be taught. Dog trainers say “don’t let these pups chew anything today if you don’t want to be chewed tomorrow.” So what is taught today for these growing puppies in your homes may also determine and develop their future behaviors and individuality.

Corgis mature only when they reach 3 years old. You can be keen of the single uniqueness of your own corgi from others. By that, you can have the authority over him by giving consistent training especially their “testing” stages where they are mostly vulnerable and open.

The Common Corgi Personality: Energetic

A corgi is the energetic type (like many Pembroke and Cardigan corgis) if he constantly runs around and plays on about everything he sees. These types of dogs most likely are happier to establish a life outdoor. They are the best company for camping and hiking. Dogs, which are calmer and laid-back, can be best as guard dogs. They seem to be contented staying and cuddled under their master’s feet.

It is quite difficult to ask a corgi to perform work in which he does not want to do. To please an energetic corgi by confining him in a small space may be unpleasant to him, similar to a calm, laid back dog finds it hard to pick a thrown Frisbee.

The Effect Of Food On Your Corgi’s Personality

The kind of food your eats may directly affect his behavior and personality. Like humans, diet dictates their responses in their workplaces, family problems, peer pressures and individual stress. A well-fed and healthy corgi enjoys being around and are more obedient than dogs which are kept hungry for days.

A Overview Of How To Identify Your Corgi’s Personality

When identifying your corgi’s personality, look at how your corgi interacts with his or her environment. Especially if other dogs are around. Besides the usual personality that every corgi has ( loving, playful, and energetic ), every corgi has a personality unique to them. This develops during the first few years of a corgi’s life.

Other dogs do influence your corgi’s personality because of the instinct of being in a pack. In packs, the runt of liter will act much differently than the alpha of the group, and both of their personalities will reflect that.

A corgi’s personality will also reflect its owner in some ways and how you interact with your corgi will effect the personality too. Someone who is outgoing will most likely have a corgi who is outgoing while someone who is shy will have a corgi that is shy. If you walk a lot with your corgi, you will be more likely have a corgi who will be more energetic while playing with your corgi will cause your corgi to be more playful.

Looking at how your corgi is interacted with, how he or she grew up, and what foods your corgi eats can give you an idea of what your corgi’s personality is or will be.
