The Corgi is an intelligent, friendly dog. They are the smallest of the herding dog breeds. As herders, they are strong, energetic, and require regular exercise to be happy and healthy. They can also tend to bark and nip at heels unless properly trained not to. They can have a tendency to overeat, and if you think you might be a match with a Corgi, you must monitor their weight carefully. They are charming, exuberant dogs who are also good for people without a lot of experience owning dogs, according to dogtime.com.
