It doesn’t require much effort to keep your corgi’s short and fluffy coat looking its best. This is one of the reasons why a Welsh corgi makes a great pet. It won’t even take you more than ten minutes to groom your corgi unless your playful dog likes to roll in the dirt. The first step to having a healthy Welsh corgi with a good looking coat is by feeding your dog right. Your corgi needs a well-balanced diet to keep his skin healthy and his coat shiny.
When grooming your corgi, use a metal comb with medium spaced teeth. Brush your dog’s coat one section at a time. Once you are done, you can then follow up with a closely spaced teeth comb. Doing this several times a week will ensure that you don’t have to deal with excessive hair or tangles. You should pay close attention to areas like the base of the ears where tangles are likely to develop.
Take your time to ensure that your corgi’s skin is in good condition. Check for any redness or bald spots. If your corgi has a collar, take it off while grooming him so that you can thoroughly comb the hair around the neck. Check to see that the collar is not rubbing the skin around the neck that may cause irritation.
