SP126 A Trio of Royal Corgis
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi was originally a cattle herding dog that hailed from Pembrokeshire in Wales.
Their fame comes from being the preferred breed of Queen Elizabeth ? who kept more than 30 different Royal Corgis during her long reign.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has been ranked 11th in Stanley Coren’s ‘The Intelligence of Dogs’ book which states that the breed is an excellent working dog.
In a family environment they tend to follow wherever their owners go and behave well around children. Besides herding, they also function as watchdogs due to their alertness and tendency to bark at strangers.
Because of their herding instincts they also love to chase anything that moves and occasionally nip at their owners ankles as this is what they were originally bred to do with cattle.
Among some of the names of the Queen’s Royal Corgis were Sugar, Honey, Sherry, Whiskey, Cindy, Rufus, Brush and Pickles… Take your pick!
