A brief presentation of the Pembroke Corswiss

The Pembroke Corswiss is a hybrid of the Welsh Corgi Pembroke and the Great Swiss Mountain Dog. This new hybrid has little or no information available on the hybrid itself, so we'll get our information from the parent breeds. Although the approximate date and place of origin of the hybrid are unknown, we do know that the Welsh Corgi came from the UK and the Great Swiss Mountain Dog from Switzerland. Both parent breeds are ancient dog breeds, and both were bred for breeding and guarding duties. Their unique skill sets and personality traits make them an interesting combination for this hybrid. Pembroke Corswiss owners say this dog has an independent nature, but is always eager for attention and affection.

A little of the Welsh Corgi Pembroke

        
The Welsh Corgi Pembroke is a native UK breed, however, the ancestors of this Pembrokeshire Corgi were actually Flemish, brought to England by Flemish weavers in the early 1100s. Eventually settling in Haverfordwest in southwest Wales, these early Corgis would have a heritage similar to that of the Samoyed, Keeshond, Chow Chow, Pomeranian, Finnish Spitz and Norwegian Elkhound. They were used to herd and guard sheep and cattle, their small size and low form enabling them to nip the heels of sheep and cattle to keep them in line without retaliatory kicks from the center of their attention. Over time, they have become beloved companions of the rich, royal and famous, having also nipped many of these heels. There are two varieties of Corgi, the Pembroke and the Cardigan, but it's the Welsh Corgi Pembroke that is one of the pedigree parents of this hybrid. The Welsh Corgi Pembroke was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1934.

A little of the Great Swiss Mountain Dog

The Great Swiss Mountain Dog is thought to have been brought to remote, isolated areas of Switzerland by the Romans in centuries past. It is the oldest and largest of the four Sennenhund (Alpine Shepherd Dog) breeds that developed in Switzerland. The “Swissy” quickly became vital in the livestock and guarding sectors, thanks to its ability to pull carts loaded with milk, vegetables and other local produce to market, increasing their value to local farmers and breeders. Today, both parent breeds are known for their unwavering loyalty to their owners and their human families, and will be happiest when given the task of occupying them.

Appearance of the Pembroke Corswiss

The Pembroke Corswiss is a hybrid of the Welsh Corgi Pembroke and the Great Swiss Mountain Dog and, as such, may inherit appearance traits from one or both parent breeds. No actual appearance information is available on the hybrid, but when you look at the parent breeds, your hybrid can measure from 25.5 to 73.5 centimeters and weigh from 12 to 63.5 kilos at maturity. The tail can vary in length and can curl or arch over the back. The face may resemble a fox or have a large head with a gentle facial expression, round eyes and dark ears that can stand upright or be of medium length and fold back. Body structure is likely to be robust but variable in size due to differences in body size between parent breeds. The coat will be thick and double, with black, rust, white, red, sable, fawn or tan coloration with or without white markings.

Temperament of the Pembroke Corswiss

Your Pembroke Corswiss, a hybrid of the Welsh Corgi Pembroke and the Great Swiss Mountain Dog, can take on the temperament characteristics of one or both parent breeds. This hybrid will make an excellent member of the furry family, with temperament traits such as: affectionate, lively, cheerful, courageous, friendly, gentle, intelligent, loyal, loving, lively, protective and mischievous. Your hybrid is also social and outgoing, making him ideal with children and other animals, but bear in mind that he's also a little independent. If properly socialized at a young age, he'll be good with children and the family cat, and for the most part, strangers as long as he doesn't sense danger to his human family. He will probably have a moderate tendency to roam and hunt, due to the background of his parent breeds.

Needs and activities of the Pembroke Corswiss

Your Pembroke Corswiss hybrid comes from two active parent breeds. What this means for you and your family is simply that he will be constantly on the move and investigating. He'll need 1-2 hours a day of moderate activity and exercise, which can be accomplished with long daily walks or jogs, romping in the dog park or fenced backyard and interactive games of fetch, Frisbee, search and find, dirt dog. activities and obedience training. He's highly intelligent, so it's important to keep his mind actively engaged as well as his body. This will avoid the annoying and frustrating behaviors that can develop as a result of boredom. He loves his human family and really doesn't like to be left alone for long periods. He can tolerate the cold very well with his thick double coat, but may need extra protection in warmer temperatures, he will do best in moderate climates. Depending on which breed parent has the most influence on the biological mix, his size and weight may not be conducive to apartment or condo living, unless you're really committed to providing him with the outdoor exercise he needs to be healthy, happy and fit. That said, he can live in an urban or rural setting, in an apartment or condo, with an appropriate exercise commitment from the landlord, or a family home with or without a fenced yard. Because of its adventurous tendencies and propensity to follow its hunting nose, it's very important to keep it on a leash when it's outside the house or other enclosed space, unless you like to see it hunting through grasses and brambles as it investigates an unusual or interesting subject or scent that has caught its eye.

Maintenance of the Pembroke Corswiss

Your Pembroke Corswiss belongs to the moderate maintenance category as well as the moderate shedding category, which makes this hybrid's coat non-hypoallergenic. This will require it to be brushed at least twice a week to remove loose hairs, debris and mats. Bathing should only be done when necessary, so as not to remove the vital oils needed to keep the coat healthy and weather-resistant. Check toenails once a week, trimming as needed, unless he's keeping them worn down by daily physical activity. Check ears weekly, cleaning with a cotton ball and an approved canine ear cleaner as needed. The level of odor is low, as is the tendency to drool in this hybrid. His teeth should be brushed at least twice a week, although daily is preferable, to avoid the development of periodontal disease and the accompanying tooth loss.
