The CWCCA is the parent club for the Cardigan Welsh Corgi breed and is a member of the American Kennel Club.


The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is one of the oldest known breeds. They are believed to have been in existence in Wales for over 3,000 years, and were first imported to the United States in 1932. Cardigans make a delightful companion as well as a working farm, show, or performance dog. We hope that you enjoy this site as you learn about our breed.

While the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi appear similar, they are in fact two distinct breeds that developed separately centuries ago in geographically distinct areas of Wales. They are part of the cultural heritage of Wales and each breed deserves to be preserved and protected like any cultural treasure.

One of the many breed characteristics that distinguish Cardigans from Pembrokes is color. Cardigans come in more colors including blue merle and brindle which have never occurred in purebred Pembrokes. Since canine geneticists have proven that both of these traits are dominant, it is virtually impossible for either color to suddenly appear in a litter of Pembrokes. Blue merle or brindle Pembrokes are a result of crossbreeding which is not condoned by the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America or their members. These puppies are not purebred, are not eligible to be registered in the AKC Stud Book and cannot compete in AKC Conformation or Herding events.
