Default How much do Pembroke Welsh Corgi's shed?

You know I've been listening to what some of you guys have been saying about just how much work border collies are. I think a dog more compatible for me would be a Corgi. I do have a question as to just how much these dogs shed?? I was considering a Shetland Sheepdog but the excessive barking and constant shedding plus unstable temperments turned me off. Corgi's seem more stable for what I want to do (competetive obediance and agility)... And JRT's are way to animal aggressive for me. Also any insights into the Corgi breed would be great.

Yeah, peanut sheds like crazy. I'm guessing, however with a good bath, haircut, and grooming, it will be a lot less.

Every dog is different. And it especially depends on what food you're feeding. I've never heard of Shetland Sheepdogs having excessive barking... and I've never met one that did. Same goes for JRT's aggressiveness. It all has to do with their breeding. As for the shedding... ALL dogs shed. And they shed ALOT. You can control that by putting them on a good, premium food and raking out their coat at least twice a week. Don't think you're going to find a silver-bullet breed that doesn't shed. You want a dog? You get the dog hair! I am always approached by people who say "I think I want a lab instead of a golden because of less hair." HA! They only have billions of smaller hairs insted of the longer ones which are much easier to sweep up with my hand!

Shelties are yappy, but it depends on the lines you get them from too. Some show lines are bred to be a bit quieter and slightly mellower than others. (Working lines in shelties are virtually unheard of anyway)

And yep, dogs come with hair BUT if you don't want to deal with the dog hair, clipping the coat is an option. I personally like my dog's coats but if you're anal about dog hair, just shave 'em.

Oh and BTW, yes Border Collies are a lot of work, but virtually any herding dog is.

Fandogg if you want a dog that doesn't shed is good with obedience and agility the poodle may be the dog for you.They come in three sizes standard poodle,miniature poodle,and toy poodle.They also come in a wide varity of colors black,brown,blue,sliver,parti,beige,white,red,apri cot,and phamtom in the show ring only the solid colors eg black,brown,white,red,apricot,white,and silver not sure about the others tho.Also stay away from the teacup poodles there toy poodles but there a runt they have nothing but problems and don't live very long.Toy poodles are known to live for 10 to 14 years not sure about the miniature and standard poodle.They do require alot of brushing about once a week for 20 minutes.They also need to have professional grooming eg clipping,teeth cleaned,ears cleaned,toe nails cut every 6 to 8 weeks.Have any questions about poodles feel free to ask.

From everything I've heard, Corgis shed just about as much as a GSD sheds. And GSDs shed a LOT. Hey, if you wanted a really smart dog that could do obedience and agility, that sheds lightly and isn't girly, get a Schnauzer. (Mini or Standard. I don't think a Giant could do agility. But watch out, different sizes comes with different temperament.) lol Those have to be some of the toughest dogs I know.
