3 Best Ways To Deal With Corgi Shedding 2018

3 Best Ways To Deal With Corgi Shedding

As a Corgi Owner, we all know that the shedding from a Corgi is a nightmare to deal with. Corgis have a double coat, which consists of a short inner insulated coat and an outer longer coat.

We have come up with 5 of the best ways and tools to deal with Corgi Shedding. The list consists of the 5 best ways to deal with Corgi shedding.  Corgi shedding is something you can’t completely control. You have to make it part of your daily routine.

1. Dyson Vacuum – Dyson Ball Animal 2 vacuum cleaner

This Dyson Vacuum has over 600 reviews, Dyson claims that it is the strongest suction of any vacuum also comes with a 5-year warranty. Dyson claims this is suction tested to  ASTM F558 at the cleaner head, dust-loaded, against upright market. Completely bag free, they claim you will never have to buy a Vacuum bag again.  I personally prefer the shop vac, but I am a guy and just don’t care about all the fancy stuff. 

A Reddit user named “juicyfizz” claims the same as well.

“I’ve heard great things about dyson or similar vacuums.

YES. We have a Dyson and it’s great for picking up Corgi hair. When vacuuming the downstairs plus the master bedroom, usually we wouldn’t have to empty the vacuum at all pre-Corgi. That same space requires us to empty the Dyson five times before we finish vacuuming.”

 


2. Furminators, Detanglers

I see most people going after the longer hair Furminators, the size is up to you. We prefer the medium furminator for corgies but it’s up to your personal preference. We do know the best place to buy a furminator is on Amazon. This is because the markup at pet stores is ludicrous. We have heard that is is not good to use on a puppy. The puppy can grow a fear of the furminator which can cause long-term mental damage. You want to expose the puppy to a gentle experience and also works as great bonding. Also never shave a double coated dog like a corgi.

Here are some products that were recommended by Reddit users.

 

RUBOLD Dematting Tool for Dogs

This product is $18.99 and has over 1200 reviews on Amazon they claim the tool has painless home grooming. Also tested to work on dozens of long hair breeds of dogs and cats. Take a look at this product here on Amazon, let us know what you think.  RUBOLD Dematting Tool for Dogs

We have also found that this product works great as a detangler for Corgies.

Pet Head Fur Ball Detangling Spray for Pets Strawberry Yogurt

This product has 65 reviews and is only $12.14.  The product claims to be in strawberry yogurt scented You just spray on dry hair and brush to fix the knots and tangle free. The product also claims to be made from essential fatty acids, sunflowers seeds surprising, very cool) wheat protein and vitamin E. They also claim that all products are made in the USA. You can view this product here on Amazon.   Pet Head is a premium range of luxury shampoos, conditioners, and sprays for dogs.

 

Between an awesome vacuum, detangler, and ferminators and or matting tools. What else can you do to stop corgi shedding?

So I went out and did some research in a facebook group. I asked what is the best way to Corgi shedding.  Surprisingly it wasn’t a miracle product or a new invention. It was simply maintenance.

3. Maintenance For Dealing With Corgi Shedding

  • This is an unavoidable step for maintaining corgis hair shedding. After asking the question, here are some responses that we received about corgi shedding.
  • Brush Every day
  • Brush Vacuum and sweep, then repeat 🙂
  • A Vacuum
  • A Vacuum with a Roomba chaser
  • Just embrace it
  • Brush, brush, brush!
  • Make a wig with it & pretend your corgi is Donald Trump
  • Coconut oil actually reduces shedding. I own 2 corgis and 2 German Shepherds….it does help.
  • Dustbuster
  •  My corgi loves a leaf blower so we take her outside brush her and then blow her with the leaf blower😂
  • Furminator bath. Shampoo and condition. Works wonders!
  • Undercoat rake when it’s really bad. Furminator helps too. I try to brush mine once a week. Shampoo and condition when it’s bath time. Don’t shave! It’s very bad for their coat. Double coats help keep them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It can mess up their coat very badly if shaved.
  • Brush every day on a regular routine will help reduce the amount There are also several shampoos and conditioners that help.
  • I live in an apartment but right next door to a park. It has its pros and cons anyway after our morning walk and squirrel chasing session( definite pro) we sit in shade and we have a brushing session he really loves those so that helps I think.

Hopefully, this was enough to help with your corgi shedding. We have a Corgi, and we have hair everywhere. So I figured I could write about what are ways to deal with the dogs shedding. Please leave a comment if you found this helpful.

The History Of The Pembroke Welsch Corgi

Pembroke Welsch Corgi History

The Pembrokeshire Corgi was officially recognized by the Kennel Club (United Kingdom, not AKC!) in 1934. At this time he was given recognition as a breed separate and apart from his cousin, the Cardiganshire Corgi. Clifford Hubbard, who was known as the foremost authority on Welsh dogs, noted that the Corgi most certainly dated back to the early twelfth century and probably to the reign of Hywel Dda, King of Wales, in the early tenth century. The Pembroke Corgi is a breed of the Spitz group – that Nordic group of dogs which is so easily recognized by a sharp-pointed muzzle and foxy face, erect and pointed ears, and a high set and gaily carried tail. Near relatives include the Swedish Vallhund (Vastergotland Spitz), the Norwegian Buhund, the old type Pomeranian and the Schipperke. Iris Combe, in her recent book on the origins of herding breeds also feels that the Corgi has a strong relationship to the Norwegian Lundehund – a puffin hunting dog of Norway. More about this connection later.

The Romans were the first to classify dogs, which they arranged into three groups according to the purpose for which they were used:

Class 1: Canis villatica or house dog. This category probably included all types used for human protection and the destruction of vermin around the villa.
Class 2: Canis pastoralis or shepherd’s dog
Class 3: Venatici or sporting dog

Originating in Pembrokeshire, Wales, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is an enchanting dog whose background is steeped in folklore. According to Welsh legend, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi sprang from the lairs of fairies and elves! As the legend goes, one day two children were out in the fields tending to their family’s cattle when they found a couple of puppies. The children thought they were foxes, but recognizing something different about them, bundled them up and took them home. Their parents immediately saw that the pups were not foxes, but dogs, and told their children that the pups were a gift from the fairies that lived in the fields. The fairies used them to pull their carriages and sometimes ride into battle. As proof that Pembrokes were indeed the mounts of fairies, the parents pointed to the marks on their backs where the fairy saddle had been placed on their shoulders. The children were delighted and cherished their pups. As they grew, the dogs became treasured companions and learned to help the children take care of the family’s cattle. For those who don’t believe in fairy tales, there are historians who say that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is descended from Vallhunds, Swedish cattle dogs that were brought to Wales by the Vikings in the 9th and 10th centuries. Others think they may have been descended from dogs that were brought to Wales by Flemish weavers in the 12th century. Either way, the breed has a rather misty historical pedigree. Farmers who kept working dogs in the past bred the best dogs for the jobs they wanted them to do. They didn’t keep good records about the matings. In the 1920s, the UK Kennel Club recognized Corgis as purebred dogs. They were officially known as Welsh Corgis when exhibited for the first time in 1925. At that time, Pembrokes and Cardigans were shown in the same class as one breed. Then, in 1934, the Kennel Club recognized the Pembroke and the Cardigan as two separate breeds. In that same year, the American Kennel Club followed suit. Pembrokes were first shown in the U.S. in 1936. Pembrokes have slowly gained in popularity in the U.S., and today, are among the top 50 most popular breeds for family pets. They’re also popular with Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England, who received her first Pembroke Welsh Corgi from her father (King George VI) in 1933. The puppy’s name was Rozavel Golden Eagle and was a playmate for Elizabeth and her sister, Margaret. Elizabeth has loved the little dogs ever since, and currently has a pack of them lounging around Buckingham Palace.
