Basic Procedure for Judging the Pembroke Welsh Corgi

  • Assess the outline and balance of the dog from at least 15 feet away from the dogs - both standing and gaiting.
  • Always examine a Pembroke Welsh Corgi on a table. Wait until the first dog is set up on the table before examining him. Stand away from the table to assess balance and outline.
  • Evaluate true Corgi expression on the ground, not on the table. Do not throw items to get expression.
  • Judge both sides of the Corgi to check for mismarks.
  • Special emphasis should be placed on side movement.
