Cutting their hair short or even shaving is a BAD idea!!! Unless medically necessary, I would never, it can ruin the fur. Corgis are heavy shedders, over time, it will grow on you...no pun intended, LOL.
Brushing, brushing and more brushing is what I reccommend and also learning to embrace the fur, especially with two.
(1) We add some skin/coat supplement to their dinner
(2) We bathe them rarely, only a few times a year
(3) we feed healthy food
(4) we brush regularly
(5) We get strong muscles from vacuuming
(6) we learn not to be scared when huge tumbleweeds of fur roll across the room
(7) We invest in multi-packs of lint rollers
(8) We never, ever, EVER think about shaving them!
Excellent rules to live by!
You're never supposed to shave double coated breeds. I'd suggest a good vacuum and lots of lint rollers.
I agree with the others. Do not shave your corgis! Their undercoat (which is what is shedding) protects them from the sun. It is very important to keep it!
While Ellie doesn't shed nearly as badly as Yuki, she does shed quite a bit. I deal with this by brushing her daily (a good 5-10 minutes of brushing) and vacuuming 2-3 times per day. It's a bit of work, but it's not so bad once you make it into a habit. :)
Don't shave, they are probably just blowing their coats so brush daily for a week and they will probably be back to shedding normally soon.Usually happens twice a year. A bath loosens up the dead hair too but brush well after they dry. Welcome to Corgi-World!
Even if you did trim them, you would still have the shedding. It would just be shorter hairs.
You brush and you vacuum and you resign yourself that having corgi = excessive shedding lol.
Do NOT shave (please read this FAQ page about shaving)
Thought you might find this discussion humorous...
No on cutting hair. Try buying a Furminator or similar style brush and use that in concert with your regular brush. We brush Camber outside to mitigate some loose hair. Corgi's shed and that ain't gonna change.
thanks for the suggestions guys! :) i definitely wont be cutting their hair. Im just going to have to stick to brushing and try lint rollers Ruby and Bear go crazy the minute they hear the vaccum.
