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.
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!
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!
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!
Are you a corgi lover? If so what’s your favourite thing about them?!
