Most dogs are driven by food, but this is especially true for pembroke corgis. This can be a bit of a double-edged sword when it comes to health and training.

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s ancestors worked on farms for food, and this hasn’t changed.. This strong motivation to receive food makes positive reinforcement training effective. However, their never ending hunger also makes them prone to overeating. Your corgi’s weight is important to their health, as weighing too much can put undue stress on their hips and short legs.

Most corgis require two meals a day, and free-feeding is generally not recommended to keep their weight down. Work with your vet to figure out the type and amount of food to feed your corgi. Additionally, ensure you’re regularly monitoring their weight.
