The Pembroke Corgi is a member of the pastoral group. They were originally used for livestock droving; today they are still used for livestock droving but are more commonly kept as companion dogs. Records have been discovered that states that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi has existed in the UK since a least 920 AD. They are thought to have been brought to Wales by the Flemish weavers. They were very popular in the 14th to the 18th centuries as cattle drovers. They became Kennel Club registered in 1928 and accepted by the American Kennel Club in 1936. The Pembroke and Cardigan Corgis were recognised as separate breeds in the UK in 1934. The Pembroke is an intelligent dog that loves a challenge. They are not too difficult to train but they can be try to be dominant if given the chance. As puppies they do require to be properly socialised and trained.
