How Bad Do Corgis Shed Hair?
Last Updated on December 20, 2021 by May Jones
If you wonder how bad corgis shed, it really depends on what you’re used to and what other dog breed you’re comparing them to.
But overall, most people find that corgis shed pretty bad in comparison to other breeds.
Luckily, that doesn’t mean we can’t make a corgi part of our family if we fell in love with the breed.
How do I stop my corgi from shedding?
You can’t get a corgi that doesn’t shed, and you can’t completely stop your corgi from shedding, but there are many things you can do to manage the shedding successfully.
Brush your corgi frequently
If you brush your corgi frequently with a suitable brush, naturally, there will be less loose hair to go to other places.
How often should you brush your corgi?
How often you should brush your corgi depends a little bit on how much your corgi tolerates the brushing.
If your corgi is happy to be brushed, there’s nothing stopping you from establishing a 2x a day brushing routine. Morning and evening. It will become a habit just like brushing your teeth.
By brushing your corgi frequently, you can keep the sessions short and there’ll be less hair coming out of their fur.
So, you may find that frequent short sessions are better than the occasional long session.
What’s the best vacuum for corgis?
I find a mix of different tools best when it comes to best vacuums for corgis.
Here’s what we use in our home:
1. A vacuum robot that’s programmed to automatically vacuum our living area once a day
The vacuum robot won’t be able to get all loose corgi hair, and it’s definitely not perfect on carpets, but it’s a huge help to keep the amount of loose hair in our main living area under control.
2. A cordless vacuum that makes it easy and saves me so much time
Honestly I didn’t know how much I was missing out until I finally got myself to buy a cordless vacuum cleaner. It makes vacuuming so much quicker and easier if you don’t have to worry about the cord.
3. Small tools like lint roller and silicone brush for carpets, couches, and clothers
I always have a lint roller by our door to help clean hair from my clothes before I go out.
Recently we added a little silicone roller to our toolkit too, which is a huge help in cleaning carpets and fabric couches from stubborn hair.
