Pembroke Welsh Corgi History
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a breed that was originally bred in Wales by farmers. The first mention of the Corgi can be traced back to 1107 when records indicate that Henry I gifted one to his brother Robert. Although initially used for herding, the original purpose for breeding them was likely as a small hunter.
They were brought to North America and given their AKC recognition in 1934. Today, they are more commonly used as family pets due to their loyal and loveable nature but they still retain their willingness to please, making them easy trainees out of obedience classes or agility courses.
