Brenda (CTChin) has a corgi so I'll leave this one to her. They are adorable though, I know that.

Hello!

Don't let that adorable face fool you LOL They can be one tough dog underneath that cute exterior. Don't get me wrong they aren't mean just too smart and sometimes a bit too dominant for their own good. A large dog in a smallish package if you will. They are the ultimate dog if you are smarter than them, can be firm, meet their exercise needs and yes, they need a good grooming especially in the spring and fall. Over all though it isn't terrible.

Out of my 4 dogs, my corgi is the most reliable outside loose (when I'm with him of course). While sometimes he barks a bit too much protectively inside, outside he is the quietest.

Over all I like Corgi's Go with a female first if you decide to get one. They tend to be less dominant.

Corgi's were popular with the people at the horse shows I used to go to. Every one I met was friendly and seemed very smart and well mannered. That's all the experience I have with them.

Mine has never nipped heels. Yes, they do shed but brushing alleviates this. They have a double coat so if you are against any type of shedding, you may want to consider a different breed.

I have a Pembroke Welsh corgi. He's only 8 months old right now, so this will be his first shedding season.

My guy definitely tries to "herd" us when we take him outside to play. Simply meaning that he runs circles around us while we are play-growling at him and trying to catch him.

The only real problem he has is that he's too smart and stubborn for his own good.
