Who is this dog for?

Makenna Graham

Why do you want a Pembroke?
I have taken multiple matchmaking quizzes with the AKC and other reliable dog resource websites and they all recommend corgis as my ideal match. It isn't just that they're cute, they're also just the right energy level and maintenance for me. Additionally, they're just the right size; I'm a smaller woman, so I have a tougher time walking and caring for my friends' larger dogs when I dogsit because they're much stronger than me. They are also just the right level of independence for me. I've spoken with friends of friends who own corgis about their experiences, and they seem to match up with my impressions of the breed and what I have learned from research. I love how smart they are and how it seems they'll always keep you on your toes.

Activities planned with Pembroke:
Depending on their age and activity level, I would love to take mine on my evening walks around my town parks and play some frisbee. If they are up to it, I would also like to take them out hiking with me. I do moderate difficulty hiking in the spring, summer, and fall. I have many friends with dogs, so if they are the type to enjoy time with other dogs, they usually have get-togethers where all the dogs come to one house and run around the backyard to play. I'd also like to take my corgi out to dinner with me at the restaurants with outdoor, dog-friendly areas. Of course, I would also love to have some cuddle time at night while watching TV or reading books.

No

Vet contact info:

Will handle mistakes Pembroke makes like this:
It would depend on the mistake. If they chewed on something important, I would work on converting them to a chew toy instead by discreacting them with a sharp noise and replacing the said item with a chew toy. If they were begging, I would teach them to go to their bed whenever I ate. If they were jumping up, I would turn away and ignore the dog until they relax and remain still (and then I would reward them). For excess barking, I would provide more exercise and find mentally stimulating toys. I would seek the help of obedience classes if this would not work.

Discipline:
For problems with jumping, I would ignore my dog until the jumping and overexcitement ends. For excess barking, I would use basic commands like sit or down to distract them from the behavior source. If biting is the problem, I would say "ouch" in a firm voice and if it continued, I would step away from playing for a few minutes.
I would never yell at or hit my dog, or use a device like a shock collar. If my tactics didn't work, I would seek the help of a trainer.


Where would Pembroke spend the majority of the time:
In my home or on walks around my neighborhood.

House dog

People at home during the day?
Not all day, but I can come home during lunch time.

Where would dog eat?
In the kitchen

Where would dog sleep:
Either in a doggy bed or in bed with me

Play & exercise:
I go out for walks around my neighborhood and parks most days of the week after work, so they would get exercise on walks and if we go to a park, I could bring a frisbee. On the few days when I don't walk or if it rains, I have a long hallway that would be good for fetch. If they are friendly with other dogs, my friends with dogs will frequently have get-togethers every other week where everyone brings their dogs to one of their houses and lets them all play and run around their fenced-in backyard. On the weekends, I live nearby a lot of state parks and I like to go hiking with friends, so I could bring them with me.
