WHAT IS IS LIKE LIVING WITH A CORGI?

Hope you like hair. hugs, and walkies!!

First and foremost, Corgis are a herding breed. When researching, learning about the traits and behaviors of herding breeds is good place to start. Corgis love to run, chase, and play which means they require a substantial amount of exercise. A simple walk down the street is not enough for a corgi, so be prepared to provide many outlets for your corgis endless energy. Corgis also have a double coat, which means they shed year round but "blow their coat" twice a year as the seasons are transitioning. Pembroke Corgis especially are very vocal dogs. They will alert you to unfamiliar sights and sounds that they notice. 

Lastly, Corgis are a "long" dog, meaning extra care and attention must be paid to prevent back injuries. Limiting access to stairs and preventing jumping on/off furniture is crucial for at least the first 2 years of your corgis life to prolong their lifespan and mobility.

If you have any other questions about life with a corgi, please reach out! We love when owners do their research!

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A NEW PUPPY?

At 8 weeks old, our pups go home with a introduction to crate training, which is the foundation of house training. Nipping, mouthing, and chewing are all standard developmental behaviors for a Herding breed puppy. These behaviors must be managed while the pup grows into a dog. There is no quick fix for these behaviors. only proper management techniques. If nipping or mouthing is intolerable for you, you may want to consider another breed. it's also important to understand that the potty training process can take up to 6 months from brining your puppy home. We do not recommend puppies be left loose in the home while unattended until 2 YEARS OLD. This helps to assure your dog is not poisoned by getting into the trash, electrocuted from chewing on wires, or able to use the restroom unnoticed in your home. Play pens and crates are a puppies best friend.
Our puppies come home with a "New puppy, Now what?" packet to give new pet parents a jump-start on techniques for managing a puppy in the home, setting expectations, and some general info about training puppies and dogs.

HOW DO I PURCHASE A PUPPY?

We ask that everyone who is interested in adopting one of our puppies submit an adoption application.

This application lets us get to know you and your home a bit so that we can assure you find the best fit in your companion. It is uncommon that we turn people away but we have to do our due diligence in screening homes for the well-being of our pups.

Once puppies are available for selection, we will contact waiting families and inform you of how to submit the holding deposit ($400) for the puppy of your choice. We require a sale contract be signed at time of deposit submission. The deposit is credited to the total price of the puppy at 8 weeks of age. The remainder of the purchase price of the puppy is due in full prior to pickup. Cash payments can be made at time of pick-up but all electronic payments must be received and processed prior to pick-up of puppy.

We currently accept credit/debit cards as well as cash for the purchase of puppies. Buyer is responsible for paying any associated fees or taxes.

HOW DO I REGISTER MY PUPPY?

Our puppies are all come with limited registration through the AKC. We register all of our pups with their new owners information prior to going home. Our pups are named according to the letter assigned to their litter and registered names include "CC" or "Camp Corgis" at the beginning or end of their registered name. This allows us to keep track of all dogs produced here at Camp Corgis.

WHAT COMES HOME WITH MY PUPPY?

Our pups go to their new homes with their first 2 rounds of puppy vaccines, first 3 deworming's, AKC registration, already introduced to crate training, and a puppy pack containing: a toy and blanket that smells like mom and littermates, AKC welcome folder, "new puppy, now what?" info packet, sample of kibble they're eating, slicker brush, nail trimmer, and puppy safe chews.

With the purchase of a Camp Corgi puppy, you also receive lifetime breeder support and advice, as well as discounted boarding and training services from us here at Camp Corgis.

HOW MUCH DO PUPPIES COST?

We currently charge the same fee for all of our puppies, regardless of color or gender. 
We charge $2,200 total. We require a $400 deposit to hold the puppy of your choice, which is credited to the total price of the puppy upon pick-up. Puppies are available to be chosen according to the order of which deposits are received. If you are the first one to place a deposit on that litter, you get first pick and so on.
A lot goes into responsibly producing a litter. Health testing, veterinary care, training, whelping supplies, time, and love are just the beginning. Our pricing reflects the level of care and time that is necessary to produce our puppies.

WHAT IF I NEED TO REHOME MY CORGI?

Here at Camp Corgis, our dogs are family. We offer a partial refund for any Camp Corgi that needs to be returned, no questions asked. Our sales contract does specify that if at any point in time, for any reason a camp corgi can no longer be kept, they must be returned to us. Our hope is that no dog produced by us ever ends up in a less than ideal home or animal shelter for any reason.
