Hello :) I'm very VERY interested in buying a Corgi sometime in the next few weeks, and I was hoping I could get some tips, suggestions, and advice from anybody that's owned a Corgi pup. I've read a…Continue

"1.)  I had NO IDEA how bad the shedding would be.  Luckily, it doesn't really get on our furniture.  But the carpet - oh the carpet!  And our clothes!  You need to INVEST in some lint rollers!  We use the…"

"You should get a corgi. Both of mine do not shed very much. Only once a year. All year long. It is a good idea to take to the groomers on a regular schedule."

"I just have to say something else. I love this site because there are so many people to give advice and recomendations.  And they all love this breed and want people to be serious about wanting a corgi and taking care of it.  But just…"

"At our house everyone knows that corgi hair is an accessory and sometimes a condiment.  Although that last one is not on purpose lol.  I have to say that two of my corgis I don't notice the shedding as much as the third one. …"

Lucy & Ricky-Rafa (Wendy/Jack ) replied to Alison Prexta's discussion Looking For Information From All of the Owners of Corgis!
"Ahh, Sam. Great advice, as always. Shedding is the least concern when taking on the responsibility of owning a Corgi. Re-homing Ricky-Rafa was a humbling experience to Jack and me, seasoned Corgi owners for more than 40 years. But, with lots of love…"

"Do I have the only corgis who don't shed that much?  Yes, if I wear black and they sit on my lap I have quite a few visible dog hairs.  But, I don't vacuum daily, nor do I brush my dogs daily and we just don't have that much…"

Jenny, Tucker, & Zoey replied to Alison Prexta's discussion Looking For Information From All of the Owners of Corgis!
"1) Tucker used to shed a ton. I started taking him monthly to the groomers. They use Furminator shampoo on him and then Furminate him for 15 minutes. This has greatly reduced his shedding. However, he still sheds and there is still hair to be…"

"I second that notion.....Munchkin has been out in the rain and snow (she is a city dog) and after 6 months she still has no doggy smell.  Corgis are ridiculously clean! The only smell you may get is "Frito Feet" LOL."

Jane Christensen replied to Alison Prexta's discussion Looking For Information From All of the Owners of Corgis!
"I second that (Jane) on the bathing! Mine only get a bath if they roll in something also and then with a very mild shampoo. Mine normally get a bath at the most every 6 months but usually once a year:) Brushing is good but you don't want to…"

Jane replied to Alison Prexta's discussion Looking For Information From All of the Owners of Corgis!
"I have to totally disagree on the bathing, corgis don't need to be bathed every week and doing so can really dry out their skin and make the shedding even worse. I wouldn't advise bathing more than monthly. I actually love it when mine…"
