The Corgipoo is a cross between the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Poodle. Like the corgis, they stand on short, stout legs, and often inherit an elongated body. Found in a wide range of colors, they have a long, soft coat covering their bodies. Other features include a roundish face, erect or floppy ears like the Corgi or Poodle respectively and round dark eyes. Besides making an excellent pet choice for first timers, they are often used in military training owing to their small size and high levels of energy.

This breed is much friendly by temperament, enjoying human company, also mingling well with all, irrespective of age – kids or elderly people. With a high level of energy and intelligence, they might act tricky and mischievous at times. Their sweet faces might often be deceptive since it’s tough to get crossed at them because of their cute, innocent looks. Corgipoos are alert, always cautious about what is going on around them.
Be prepared to teach your Corgipoo thoroughly the very basic general commands like ‘halt,’ ‘freeze,’ ‘stop,’ ‘come back,’ ‘sit,’ or ‘go’ to instill obedience in it. Use positive reinforcements like treats or even a tap, hug or praise when it achieves following a command. You can even opt for dog behaviour classes.
Feed them with 1 to ½ a cup of dry kibbles daily.
