Corman Shepherd is a German shepherd and Corgi mix. It is a crossbreed, and not much is known about its history. It inherits the size of Corgi and looks of Alsatian Dog (German shepherd).

Corman Shepherd puppies are very intelligent and smart enough to amuse their owners. They are very protective of their property and their family members, much like its parents. This quality makes them an ideal watchdog. With their pleasing personality, they are active and also go well with kids and other pets. They are obedient enough but have a craving for love and care from its family. Leaving them alone regularly for longer duration makes them aggressive and suffers from separation anxiety.

German shepherd and Corgi mix puppies are very active and require a proper exercising schedule. Long walks twice a day will be ideal for sufficient time for playtime in a fenced yard or Dogs Park will be adequate. Additionally, providing with puzzle toys will work as a psychological stimulant.

Their dense coat requires regular brushing. Every day cleaning will clean mats and tangles and keep the coat in shape.  Bathe them when they are incredibly filthy. Trim their nails at regularly, long nails will be painful for walking. Additionally, clean their ears every week to prevent infections at bay.

These full grown or puppies are attention seekers, but too much expectation will affect its psychological health. Hence, it is crucial to teach them to stay alone. Start with basics, leave it for 10-15 minutes and gradually increase the time frame, it will adjust accordingly. They are very selfish of their owners, and it needs to be associated with other persons. For instance, if there are two people in the room, make it sit close to both and give it a treat, it will enjoy the presence of another person.  Command training like, “sit,” “yes,” “no,” come,” etc. will help in communication. Obedience training and early socialization will also make lessen their aggression and help to mix correctly with other people.

They love eating, but ¾ or 1 ½ cups of dry foods will be adequate. Homemade food is optional as it contains a high nutritional value. Diving meals into two halves will improve digestion and reduce craving for food.
