Some practical advice for prospective puppy buyers

You want to buy a Cardi puppy?

There are so many things to watch out for when buying a new puppy, to begin with, where will you start your search?
For many people the first thing is to refer to Google, however, your first point of reference really should be either the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Association or visit the Kennel Club for information on new litters, .
Then talk to as many reputable people within the breed as you possibly can, Cardigans are a vulnerable breed in this country, with only around 100 pups born in an average year, so you may need to wait, you should ask in detail about how the pups are bred and just as importantly, how they have been reared.
Always expect to see the mother with the pups, you probably wont be able to see the father as well because many people go to other kennels to find the best stud dog for their bitches.
Always make sure you are given a pedigree of at least three, preferably four generations
Always expect a KC registration document, although, there are some delays at the KC currently.
Always ensure that you have a vaccination card with details of the injections your puppy has received if any. This also applies to worming treatments, your puppy should have been regularly wormed and you should be told which medication has been used and when the next dose is due.
Always expect microchip details, although again, if the pup has been chipped at the same time as it's vaccinations, then the breeder may not at that time received the details from Petlog.
Always expect to be given a free four or five week puppy insurance document, all breeders are able to offer this and it gives invaluable cover should anything go wrong in those very early days.
Always Expect to receive full details of the rearing of your puppy, a diet sheet, information on training etc.
Always be aware that certain colours are not acceptable in the Cardigan Corgi standard. Some colours (like liver) may appear naturally, however other colours have been appearing which are the result of indiscriminate breeding or at least breeding displaying a lack of knowledge of the breed. Blue merles should only be bred to tricolours, if they have been mated to red or brindle dogs then red or brindle merles may appear. These are highly undesirable and could cause health problems further down the line. You should certainly not be paying a premium for them. In short, blues should only appear in litters with tricolours, reds and brindles should never be in the same litter as blues. Tricolours can appear in any litter of any colour.

Cwmderw Cardigans are absolutely thrilled to announce the safe arrival of a healthy litter! Brindle boys available, all perfectly marked. Dad (Diesel) is a UK Champion, mum (Cwtch) hasn't been shown as I had two small human babies around the same time she was born, but her mum who can also be seen here at home, won her class at Crufts the first time we went! The puppies are being raised in the home, following the Puppy Culture Protocols. This is a series of a range of experiences which, when experienced at the optimum age (3-12 weeks), helps develop the puppy emotionally into a secure and stable adult. There are lots of youtube videos showing in better detail what it means. Our Cardis are first and foremost beloved members of the family, but there are a number of pups showing potential to be show dogs if thats something you are interested in. They also have a unique-to-the-uk damline, their grandmother was imported from Finland as a puppy. Puppies will be fully Kennel Club registered, have 5 weeks insurance, be vet checked, wormed, well socialised and be working on crate training, lead walking etc before they leave. I'm not a big breeder, this is my second litter, but I am really passionate about helping the pups to be as happy and healthy as possible. The cardiped link to their breeding is here: We are in Ceredigion, where the cardis originate from. Pups will be ready from 8/9 weeks (i want to see how they are mentally developing before sending them off to their new homes, I don't want to send them too early). They will come with a comprehensive puppy pack with helpful info on training etc, a bed from home, and a lifetime of help from me should you need it! If you have any questions please ask away!

KC registered, micro chipped, wormed, and vet checked, first vaccination depending on current vet policies, they will have been well socialised, have a full record of their upbringing, and have puppy insurance. These babies are being reared in the family home and are becoming familiar with all the usual household noises etc. The pups are just four days old in this photo. Please be aware that despite the high prices being advertised on some online site, it is currently possible to buy well bred, well reared puppies of this breed for between between £1,000 and £1,500, from a reputable breeder.
