His coat is hard-textured, short to medium length, and weatherproof with a good undercoat. All colours are acceptable, with or without white markings.

The Cardigan Corgi has a steady, even temperament. He is alert, intelligent, affectionate and adaptable. He makes a good family companion but does require plenty of outdoor exercise.

The Corgi also excels at many activities including: conformation showing, obedience, herding, tracking, and agility. Because of his eagerness to please and love of people, the Cardigan also makes an excellent Therapy Dog.

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is a descendent of the Teckel family of dogs which also produced the Dachshund. The breed is believed to have been developed after being bred with local herding dogs in Wales with the purpose of developing an all-purpose farm dog. One that drove, guarded and herded cattle. The breed was little known outside of Wales until the 1920s. Corgis were recognized as pure-bred dogs in the U.K. in the 1920's and, in 1934, the Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh Corgis were recognized as seperate breeds by the Kennel Club (England) as well as the American Kennel Club. The Cardigan is one of the less common breeds but is not considered a rarity. The breed was imported into the United States from Great Britain in 1931.
Corgis are generally a healthy breed with few diseases. Some incidence of Progressive Retinal Atrophy has been reported in the Cardigan as well as Hip Dysplasia, Spinal Disc Problems, Autoimmune diseases, and Cataracts. The average lifespan for the Cardigan is 12 to 15 years.
