Thanks to the late Queen Elizabeth II, the Corgi is perhaps one of the most recognizable dog breeds in the world. And its a beloved pup as well.
When it comes to potentially owning our own Corgi, we know that there are quite a few costs associated with these dogs that we need to pay attention to. And of course one of those costs is the actual fee to bring one home.
And since there are actually two different varieties of Corgi, you may find yourself spending even more for one over the other based on any number of factors, including how hard one is to find. So what exactly is the cost to bring home a Corgi of your very own?
How much does a Corgi cost in 2023?
According to Love Your Dog, you can easily pay anywhere from $400 to $4000 for a Corgi puppy. And the big range is all dependent on the breeder, the age of the puppy, whether or not it is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi or a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, with the former being more expensive due to being harder to find, making them rare.
And of course, if you are getting a Corgi from a rescue or shelter you may pay anywhere from $100 to $500. Obviously, the adoption or rescue fees depend on the organization as well as the age of your new pup.
Then we have the veterinarian costs associated with your new pup. In general, you can expect to spend between $500 to $1500 in your dog’s first year thanks to vaccines, neutering or spaying, and just general visits to the the vet. From there, you can expect to spend between $100 to $300 per year for vet visits, depending on how much your vet charges.
Of course, we can’t forget dog food. And that will definitely depend on your approach to your pup’s diet. On average, you can expect to pay $600 to $1200 per year on food for your Corgi, with prices reaching up to $2400 if you opt for a fresh food diet. And these costs don’t even take into account any dog treats you might be interested in spoiling your pup with.
Beyond the obvious expenses, there will also be costs associated with grooming and even making them feel at home with you, such as beds, bowls, leashes, collars, and more. Don’t forget the dog toys too!
When it comes to owning a Corgi, there are a lot of things to think about. But we definitely think these pups are worth bringing home for so many reasons, including their amazing personalities.
