Welcome to the "The Corgi Lady":
My husband and I own a small horse farm southwest of Ocala, Florida. Here we board retired horses and raise Pembroke Welsh Corgis. I also judge horse shows and run my dogs in agility trails.
Although I have owned dogs all my life, I received my first corgi in 1989 as a gift from my husband, David. I have been hooked on Corgis ever since.
Our corgi puppies are born in our house and stay inside until they are 4 weeks old. They then go out to our puppy kennels with their mothers. They live in big 12x12 shavings-filled stalls until they go home with their buyers. The puppies have their own puppy yard in which they get to play twice a day. As they get older their time out in their yard gets longer and longer. They get lots of fresh air and have many toys to play with. Of course, every now and then I have to round up all their toys, as the adult corgis steal them for themselves.
pups are dewormed every two weeks and get their first vaccinations
at 6 weeks of age. At 8 weeks they get their second vaccination at
the vets office with a complete check up for their health papers, dewormed
again and are given a Bordetella Intranasal Vaccine. I then give them
their first heartworm preventive and put Advantage on them for flea
control. My "puppy pack" also incudes a copy of the parent's AKC registration.
