Although the focus of our breeding program is our AKC Miniature American Shepherd, we have always had an equal love for Pembroke Welsh Corgis! We got our first AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Tucker, in 2009. Although he was never intended for breeding and was neutered at a young age, he has ALWAYS been a big part of our family! In early 2015 we made the decision to bring in an AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Rey, with intentions of producing occasional purebred AKC Pembroke Welsh Corgi litters in the future. We plan on using outside studs with her. We are VERY excited about our future PWC puppies!
At Popchop's, we strive to provide the healthiest, happiest puppies possible! Puppies are born and raised in our home, and will be socialized with several adults, children of all ages, other dogs, & many different animals from the day they're born. We're very active in the physical and mental development of our puppies. Our puppies are fed premium-quality grain-free diet to assure that they start off as healthy as possible! The future of each and every puppy born here is of the utmost importance to us. We strive our hardest to form relationships with each family who brings one of our puppies into their home, and love to receive updates and photos as the puppies grown. We stand by our puppies for their entire lives, and will always be willing to take back a dog we produce, at any point in it's life, if the owner is no longer able to provide it with the care that it needs.
FAQs ABOUT THE PWC & OUR BREEDING PROGRAM
What kind of temperament and personality does the Pembroke Welsh Corgi have?
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are typically outgoing and spirited. They all have HUGE personalities, and can be pretty talkative! They truly have a "big dog" personality with a smaller body. Pembroke Welsh Corgis are herding dogs and have a moderate energy level. They make good family pets for a semi-active to active family.
Do Pembroke Welsh Corgis bark a lot?
PWCs are typically a "talkative" breed. They are not yappy, but will bark during play & to alert their owners about a knock at the door, stranger, etc.
What grooming will be required for my Pembroke Welsh Corgi?
PWCs shed a LOT. If you do not like or can not handle shedding, then this is not a good breed for you. They are not hard to groom and only require occasional brushing to remove the dead undercoat and help with shedding the loose hair. They SHOULD NOT be shaved. Shaving will not only cause them to shed MORE, but will in time ruin their coats. Shaving will cause them to over-heat in the summer, as well, because their coat insulates cool air and protects them from the sun.
How much can I expect to pay for my corgi puppy, what will they come home with, and at what age are they ready to go?
Our Pembroke Welsh Corgis will sell for approx $950/puppy with spay/neuter agreements. This will include AKC Registration papers, tails docked & dew claws removed, 8 week wellness check & vaccinations, sample food, microchip that is prerolled, & a few other puppy supplies! We typically begin letting our puppies leave around 9 weeks, unless adjustments are needed on a case-by-case basis.
Do I have to live on a farm or a lot of land for my Pembroke Welsh Corgi to be happy?
Absolutely not, and this is a common misconception. We've had puppies go to farm homes, and puppies go to homes in 1 bedroom apartments. As long as you have the time to dedicate your PWC play time/exercise daily, they are capable of thriving in almost any living environment.
What if I do not live in your area? What transportation options are available?
We take shipping/transport on a case-by-case basis. We prefer to drive our puppies over shipping, if possible. Transportation can be made available on a case-by-case basis. If you are from another area, contact us and we can talk with you about what options are available.
