Hi all,

This is my first post here in years (I had an old account, no idea what it was so I made a new one). You guys were so helpful when I got my boy Otto years ago (he's 9 now, time flies!) and I figured I'd come here to chat with people who love their pooches as much as I do!

My husband and I have decided that we'd like to add a corgi to our family. We've done a lot of research and I've contacted a few breeders, but I've not heard back from any of them except for one on Facebook, and so far it doesn't seem like she's actively breeding her Corgi's, so I continued on our journey to find a great breeder.

Has anyone here found a breeder of Pembroke Corgi's that they've enjoyed working with? I went to the PWCCA and looked at listings, but they're not all that detailed, and I'm not sure what is and isn't accurate anymore. Any advice would be spectacular. We have always been a rescue family, and this is the first time we'll be going with a breeder.

Thank you for your help! :)

Typically, to be listed on a parent club's breeder referral list, you have to be a current club member, and agree to follow the club's code of ethics. That said, not all good breeders are on the referral list, and sometimes there are some on the list that probably shouldn't be. You still would need to contact breeders directly for more information about their dogs and their breeding programs.

Typically, I would suggest that your go to some shows and meet people, but that's not on the agenda at the moment. As an alternative, you should be able to check out the show superintendent's websites to see the results of past shows, and get an idea of the breeders of dogs in your area.

Thank you LeoRose! I had contacted several different breeders over the last few days but none were getting back to me until last night. We think we've actually found our breeder after a lengthy talk on the phone. We put down a deposit to hold our place, and we'll be heading over to her farm soon to check out her adult pups and see what we think. :) I'm extremely excited!
