Those who have ever had a Corgi would understand this video. Corgis are such happy people! The list of “facts” about them in this video are quite insightful. These are dogs who somehow find ways to entertain themselves, and know how to stay the joyful people that they are, whatever else is going on around them.
Corgis used to be cattle herders. That is why they need a lot of exercise. And they are very intelligent. Well, if their job was to herd cattle, they had to think on their feet.
Exercise needs of a Corgi
If you can think of activities that stimulate their mind and their body, you’ve got a winner. Because they were bred to be active, it is an excellent idea to keep them from getting bored and from getting overweight. The weight issue is not just about staying healthy, but also to prevent future back problems because they have a long body. If they are overweight, it puts stress on their spine.
Because Corgis have an instinct to chase, dig, chew, retrieve, and herd, find activities to help them channel their energy.
Corgi puppies may need to ease into these physical activities while their bodies are developing. One article recommends that they exercise at least two times a day. Perhaps 45 to 60 minutes the first segment, and the second one for 30 to 45 minutes. Aerobics exercise is good for Corgis. However, if your dog is a couch potato, it would be best to ease him into it so the activities won’t stress out his body. If you don’t have time to exercise them twice a day, consider training them to use a treadmill. In fact, there are actually treadmills for dogs. If you have time to take him to a dog park where he can run without his leash, he would love the feeling of freedom and a chance to mingle with other dogs.
