8 Of The BEST Things About Corgis

I am definitely biased but… Corgis really are the best breed of dogs in the world. I have loved them for years and always wanted one of my own, I still can’t believe that I finally have one!

Recently I shared some of the things you should know before getting a puppy in general, but I wanted to get specific and hopefully encourage more people to get their own Corgi. In the UK, it’s surprisingly rare to see a Corgi anywhere, so hopefully this post will show you what is so great about them… because honestly having one is brilliant!

1. They’re always happy

Corgis always have a smile on their face but not only that, they have lovely temperaments. I’m sure there are some Corgis out there that are grumpy gits, but as a whole they’re a very happy and excitable breed. That energy is infectious and Reggie has definitely been a shining light during this difficult year.

2. They’re full of character

Building on from that, they have generally great personalities and are FULL of character. I often feel like I’m having a proper conversation with Reggie because he’s so expressive (and vocal!). They’re playful, judgmental and all round hilarious.

I’d love to know what he’s thinking sometimes

3. Don’t be fooled by those tiny legs… they’re very athletic!

If you’re looking for a dog to go on long walks or runs with, don’t assume that a Corgis little legs won’t keep up with you! They’ve got the energy to match their personality, that’s for sure. Depending on what you’re looking for in a dog, maybe this isn’t for you but personally I think it’s a great thing.

4. They’re very adaptable

No matter what your living circumstances are, a Corgi will generally adapt and be happy no matter what. As long as you can give a decent chunk of your time to walking and training with them, it doesn’t really matter if you’re in a big house or a flat, the city or the countryside. From experience, Reggie loves a quiet walk along the beach just as much as in a busy town.

5. They’re smart and therefore easy to train

Corgis are very intelligent dogs, which makes them easy to train. They’re working dogs and aim to please so will work hard on learning new tricks… but be warned… they’re often too smart for their own good and will try to be boss!

Reggie learnt how to sit, lay down, roll over and come when called… all within the first couple of weeks we had him!

6. Everything about them is ADORABLE

Everything about Corgis is beyond cute. They’ve got it all covered: huge ears that flop when they run, a cute little waddle with their stumpy legs, a floofy butt, the little paw grabs and of course, the famous corgi sploot!

Sploot!

7. They’re affectionate

As long as he’s had a chance to play as well, Reggie is SO affectionate. He doesn’t understand boundaries though so will often get right up in your face but he loves a good cuddle on the sofa… with plenty of sloppy kisses too!

8. They’re great company

All in all, they’re the best companion you could ever ask for. Whilst I love dogs in general, Corgis really are the best in my opinion and I hope that I continue to have many of these wonderful creatures in my life for years to come!

Kisses!

  1. Omg it’s so fun to keep up with Reggie on instagram! He’s so cute and the photos you post of him are 😍. I don’t own a dog. My man and I have played around with the idea but we just don’t think we can dedicate the proper time to one right now (so I just live through other dog owners like yourself on instagram LOL). A friend of mine just got a corgi too and she’s in love with her. I’ve only ever heard great things about corgis. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Having a dog is the best! But definitely only if you can dedicate the time, we waited until we were ready and it’s so worth the wait 🥰 especially to have a corgi, they’re amazing! ❤️❤️

  2. Oh Gosh, I really love Reggie! I’m a dog lover so I don’t have a favorite breed but I do think corgis are so so so cute! I have a Shih Tzu myself and I love that breed too, my dog really is a little bit of a diva and she’s stubborn but also very affectionate, happy, funny, and knows exactly when to comfort you. Dogs are just the best haha!

  3. What a cool dog! It just so happens that I visited a large dog park last week, and there was a corgi there that really stuck out amongst over a hundred dogs. The corgi was running around without getting tired, and playing with every single dog in sight. Looked like a very happy dog, and my kid was thrilled to watch it. Thanks for sharing.
