My name is Leonard, and I am interested in getting a Corgi puppy for the first time. I want to learn how to raise a puppy properly, puppy training, puppy health, among other things. I live in the Bay Area so in Northern California, and am currently searching for Corgis right now.

I fell in love with corgis ever since my friend took me to Corgi-Con two years ago, and I felt like now is the best time to get one during these turbulent times to keep me and my family occupied with a little bundle of joy.

Thanks everyone!

What specific questions do you have? I have 8 month old right now, and I'm always learning as well.

Hey Leonard!

I have a follow up on your search for corgis in the bay area. There are family-raised fawn color corgis in San Francisco, and you can learn more about them here: [Moderator edit: Please read forum rules.]

I also visit Corgi Con every summer, and they all look so cute as a crowd. But due to the pandemic, there wasn't an event this year so I was sad :(

Hey Deacon!

These resources are really helpful! You made my day. I guess I just need to know how to tell if a puppy seller or breeder raised their puppies well. So how I can tell if a puppy is healthy or if it has good qualities or bloodline as the breeder advertised. But this is a good start of what I want to learn. Thank you so much! Stay safe!

Corgwin are neat little big dogs. Are you interested in a Pembroke or a Cardigan? I personally prefer Cardigans. For either breed, I suggest starting with the AKC parent club websites. They will have tons of information, as well as a list of member breeders. This the Cardi club The Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America and this is the Pem club Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America

As far as the breeder mentioned, I'm not very impressed with them, for multiple reasons.

What Leo Rose said.. follow those clubs, they likely have a breeder listing.

How to find a reputable breeder - How to find a responsible dog breeder.

You are also welcome to send me, or post breeder websites for a second opinion.

I look for titles on the dogs in sport or conformation, health tested suited for the specific breed, 1-2 litters per year, only standard colors (like a pembroke welsh corgi shouldn't be merle...), doesn't have a ton of dogs, is resposive and happy to answer questions, lists ALL dogs on their website, etc.
