WELCOME TO THE WILD, WILD WEST! HOME OF THE CORGI CORRAL!
QUEEN ELIZABETH'S CORGIS, 2011
Yes, we will take a dog back at any time, at any age if for some reason you cannot care for it anymore!
Please browse our pages as most of your questions will be answered here! Please note that if you are viewing this site on a phone, it may not present as it actually is. Sometimes photos are not in order, etc.
We get several inquiries a day, so answering the same questions over and over is very time consuming. Please go over the website thoroughly to save us time. For other questions, please feel free to email or call. Our phone number and contact form are on the bottom of this page.
Page tabs above have drop down menus.
Here is a list of how to find what you are looking for:
Under Home tab: Safe dog food list, Copy of contract, info for flying pups out of state.
Cowboys and Cowgirls: photos and descriptions of our breeding dogs.
Puppy Corral: Photos of sold pups, plus new puppy care instructions
*Prices & Reservations*: Pricing info, reservation instructions, and photo examples of the colors Corgis come in.
We hope you'll have a hootin' good time! Corgis are VERY entertaining, which is why most of our customers come back for a second or third puppy! Just ask the Queen of England, nobody can have just one! The Puppy Care Page has been updated with some important info!
If you just want Corgi information, we'll be glad to help you. Please check out our listings for safe dog foods while you're here. You will find the dog food page link if you scroll over the "HOME" page link above, as well as our contract.
OUR PUPPIES: All of our pups are AKC registered, born and raised in our home, never in a cage, but have a crate they like to sleep in inside of their play area so they are used to it. They are loved and cuddled, bathed weekly so they will be used to it, (usually with just a bit of water) but we don't recommend over bathing once you get them home. Always paper trained, first shots, wormed bi-weekly, and come with a health guarantee that also covers genetic defects. We welcome your calls and emails with questions/problems and love getting photos and success stories from our puppy parents, like our AKC Agility Champion pup, "SMART AS A WHIP!" We study and practice Cesar Millan dog training methods so you start with a well behaved puppy.
WE BREED OUR CORGIS ON THE SMALL SIDE, WHICH MATURE 16-24 LBS. THEY ARE SMALLER THAN THE STANDARD CORGI MAKING THEM EASIER TO PICK UP. ;-)
THERE HAS BEEN NO CROSSBREEDING INVOLVED IN GETTING A SMALLER DOG, JUST CAREFUL, SELECTIVE BREEDING OF NICE HEALTHY DOGS, NOT RUNTS.
Corgis originally were smaller than what is considered standard now, which is why 20 lb dogs can be found for breeding the smaller dogs. The crossbreeding that occurred with Cardigans pre-1970's has increased the size. (just look at some of the Queens first Corgis, they were small!)
Health: Pembrokes have an average life expectancy of 12-15 yrs. I find 13-17 to be more common when feeding a chemical free diet as suggested in our safe dog food list. Health problems may include: degenerative myelopathy, hip dysplasia, and Von Willebrand's disease if their parents suffered from the same problems. No Corgi Carrying these defects should ever be bred.
Temperament: Pembroke Welsh Corgis are very affectionate, love to be involved with the family, and tend to follow their owners closely wherever they go. They have a great desire to please, making them eager to learn and easy to train. They are ranked as the eleventh smartest dog in Stanley Coren's "The Intelligence of Dogs". Besides herding, they also function as watchdogs due to their alertness
and tendency to only bark as needed. Most Pembrokes will seek the attention of everyone they meet, and behave well around children and other pets. It is best to socialize them with children, pets and other adults while still young. I give my neighbor's children each a dollar to come and play with the puppies! They can't understand why I pay them for it because they have so much fun, but I tell them it is very important work!
All pups love to chase and chew on people feet, but if they start herding you too much, a firm sharp sound from you, (preferably not a word) will stop the behaviour quickly. Do not kick at the pup. You don't want him to become afraid of you, it rarely works, and can even make them aggressive thinking they have to defend themselves. (please see a Cesar Milan video, or call us for help!)
