Pembroke Welsh Corgis believe that they are big dogs in small bodies. Known for their intelligence, these active dogs never want to be left out of the action. As all-around farm dogs, corgis need constant exercise and training. Most corgis are fine with other pets and children if they have been raised with them. However they will probably chase and nip at the heels of small running children because of their herding instincts. Pembroke Welsh corgis are hardy dogs and also make for excellent watchdogs. Corgis are year- round shedders, and they shed their coats in some form on a daily basis. They shed more frequently in the Summer and in the Winter.
