Pembrokes and cardigans are two varieties of corgis that were bred and developed separately. Both are dwarf dogs with stocky built and upright ears. You can easily recognize Pembrokes since they have “broken” or bobbed tails in Sable, Red, and White color.
The fondness of Queen Elizabeth II of England to cardigan welsh corgis led to the stardom of these shepherd dogs. Due to their herding background, it’s not surprising that these short-legged dogs have the stamina for running.
Pembrokes are ideal for families who are active and fun-loving. With the right training and socialization, they can also be dependable house guards and drovers.

GROOMING YOUR CORGI
Corgis have a double coat with a thick undercoat and long topcoat. Keeping one means being committed to daily brushing. They even shed continuously, and may shed more during summer. Thus, investing in a vacuum cleaner sounds like a great idea. As for dental care, brush their teeth at least once a week. Give them a bath when needed, considering their lifestyle and physical activity.
