Corgis are an active breed and require regular exercise to maintain their physical and mental health. Without proper exercise, they can become overweight, which can lead to other health problems. The exact amount of exercise a corgi needs will depend on factors such as age, weight, and overall health. Generally speaking, they should get at least 30 minutes to an hour of exercise each day. This can be broken up into two or three shorter walks or play sessions throughout the day. A Corgi enjoys a variety of activities, such as walking, running, playing fetch, and swimming. It's important to vary their exercise routine to keep them mentally stimulated and prevent boredom. They are also natural herding dogs, so they enjoy activities that allow them to use their herding instincts, such as agility training or playing with other dogs. It's important to note that corgis are prone to joint problems due to their long body and short legs, particularly in their hips, which can be exacerbated by too much jumping or high-impact exercise. It's important to avoid activities that put too much strain on their joints, such as running on hard surfaces or jumping from high places. Corgis can become overweight if they don't get enough exercise or if they overeat, which can lead to health problems such as joint issues and diabetes. Therefore, it's crucial to provide your dog with a balanced diet, appropriate portion sizes, and regular exercise to keep them at a healthy weight. In summary, a Corgi needs daily exercise to maintain their health and wellbeing. They enjoy a variety of activities and benefit from a mix of physical and mental stimulation. However, it's important to be mindful of their joint health and avoid high-impact activities that could cause injury.
A Corgi has a double-layered coat with a soft undercoat and a weather-resistant outer coat that requires regular grooming to keep it clean, tangle-free, and healthy. They need to be brushed and groomed at least once a week.
Here are some grooming requirements and recommendations for Corgis:
Brushing: Regular brushing can help remove loose hair, prevent mats and tangles, and distribute natural oils throughout the coat, which helps keep the skin health. Use the deshedding brush to remove undercoat weekly.
Bathing: Corgis needs to be bathed every week in Singapore's humid climate. Use a mild dog shampoo (we recommend Silky shampoo) and be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid any skin irritation. Lastly, remember to blow dry to make sure the skin is completely dry to prevent skin issues.
Trimming: They also require occasional trimming or clipping, particularly around the backside and paws to prevent overgrowth and tangles and maintain a tidy appearance. Bring your corgi to a professional dog groomer every 3 months for a full grooming service to get the best result.
Nail Clipping: Corgis' nails should be trimmed regularly to prevent them from getting too long and causing discomfort or injury. Be sure to use a sharp, proper nail clipper and avoid cutting too close to the quick. Leave the cutting to the Professional dog groomer to avoid traumatizing the puppy if nails bleed during cutting (which is very common).
Teeth Cleaning: Regular teeth cleaning is important for Corgis to prevent dental problems. Brush their teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and use a dog-specific toothpaste.
Ear Cleaning: Corgis can have ear infections, so it's important to clean their ears regularly with a gentle, dog-specific ear cleaner to prevent buildup of dirt and bacteria.
Overall, A Corgi requires regular grooming to keep them looking and feeling their best. With proper grooming and maintenance, you can help ensure your dog stays healthy, comfortable, and happy.
