The CWC’s height ranges from 27-33 cm. Its weight usually ranges from 11-17 kg.
What is the difference between a Welsh Corgi and a Pembroke Corgi? The Cardie, also called the yard-long dog, is bigger and comes in more colours. The Pembroke, on the other hand, does not do well as a guard dog due to its more amiable temperament. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi, however, is no slouch in the congeniality department.
A robust breed, the CWC has a tremendous stamina for a dog of its size. Its medium-sized, compact body is longer than it is tall. It has a head that is fox-like and ears that are disproportionately larger than its frame. Its nose is always black. It has well-defined jaws and medium-sized eyes that are dark and sits obliquely on its face. The overall effect of its look is a keen and kind expression that adds to its charm factor.
The Cardie has a broad chest and muscular shoulders. The topline is level and the tail is bushy. This canine may stand low on the ground but its legs are powerful and muscular, with the hind legs more developed than the front ones. The paws are round, slightly larger, and well-padded.
This dog’s coat is medium-length and very weatherproof. As such, it feels quite rough. Cardigan Welsh Corgi colours come in a wide range of hues and combinations, from black brindle to tricolour.
Grooming is done twice a week. To keep its fur’s sheen, wipe the CWC down with chamois leather.
