Over the years our expectations of our corgis have changed. Today we are focusing on temperament and health as well as our dogs meeting AKC standards. All of our dogs are health tested and we are breeding our dogs to be of sound body and mind. Our corgis are not necessarily working dogs, even though a few do have the herding instinct. Most of our dogs are going to be better pets and family dogs then helpful on a ranch. All of our dogs live in our home, together. We raise our puppies as a part of our family. From day one they are exposed to other dogs, people, sounds, etc.
