Do Corgis Shed?
Corgis are a type of herding dog that come from Wales and were originally bred to herd cows, sheep, and horses. They have been called the “king” of dogs because they’re so smart. It’s no wonder why these furry little creatures are such popular pets today! But there is one question we always get asked: do corgis shed? Well, the answer just might surprise you…
Corgis do shed, but it is not as much as other breeds of dogs. They have a double coat: the outercoat and the undercoat. The undercoat doesn’t shed very frequently because it insulates them from both cold temperatures and hot weather, just like humans! However, corgis will still need to be brushed daily or even more often if they are shedding heavily in order to keep up with their fur’s natural cycle.
Do Corgis Shed? If so when should you brush? What kind of dog shampoo should I use? These questions can easily be answered by talking to your vet about what type of grooming routine might work best for your pup’s fur type. Additionally, we found this helpful article from VetStreet with a few tips for the do’s and don’ts of brushing your corgi:
-You should brush daily.
-Keratin is dead, so you can’t hurt it by brushing too much!
-Corgis have a double coat that sheds less than other breeds of dogs. They require more frequent grooming to keep up with their fur cycles which will vary depending on the thickness of their undercoat and how often they shed.

The number one factor in shedding is genetics: about 80% of how much an individual dog will shed is determined by what breed they are! Corgis have double coats with medium length fur, but this still doesn’t mean they don’t need regular care just like other breeds of dogs. This means more brushing than some people might be used to.
