    how much do you weigh?

    How much does your corgi weigh? I've read in books and online and in the akc standards a female should be 25-30 lbs ...my roxi is 3 yrs old and weighs between 18 and 20 lbs depending on the day she gets roughly 3 to 4 cups a day (beneful healthy radiance dry food) and and about fourth of a container of the beneful prepared meals I'm sure I'm not over or underfeeding her she's very healthy just petite all the adult corgi I've seen are considerabley bigger and sometimes overweight how common is "petiteness"

    Miss Panda Pooh = 32 lbs

    My 3-year old Corgi, Miss Panda Pooh, weighs in at 32 pounds. She is 1/2 Pembroke Corgi and 1/2 Cardigan Corgi ... with mostly Cardigan characteristics. So she is a longer, stockier, heavier girl. She is very active, fit and sleek. She is fed 1/2 cup Blackwood 3000 kibble in the morning and 1/2 cup in the evening. Her evening meal often consists of raw chicken parts instead of the equal amount of kibble. She gets raw beef marrow/knuckle bones to keep her Corgi smile sparkling clean.

    Henry weighed 29 lbs the last time I weighed him at the vet (and he needs to lose a pound or two), but there are always dogs that are going to be over or undersized. There are also some people that breed what they call "mini" corgis; if you think she came from a mill I wouldn't be surprised if they were intentionally breeding undersized dogs.

    3 to 4 cups of food is a huge amount for a corgi though...I think if you fed her a higher quality food she wouldn't need to eat so much, so there really wouldn't be much difference in cost. Henry only gets 1/2 cup twice a day.

    My guy is 19 months old now and weighs 21-22 pounds. I was wondering if he was on the smaller side, too. He gets 1/2 cup of food 3 times a day. But even at his weight he can knock me over when he comes running!

    It's Prolly closer to 3 cups I don't measure she just gets two bowls of food a day with the 1/4 of the beneful prepared meal at night I've had her on other dog food but consistently on the beneful healthy radiance the last 2 yrs she loves it and I've noticed a big difference in her fur while on it so that's what I've been getting

    Have you looked at the ingredients though? The main ingredients are corn and chicken by-product, and there's also "meat and bone meal" which I believe can legally include euthanized animals, roadkill, sick or dying animals, etc. I'm not trying to be critical but Beneful is just not that great.

    My three year old boy was 41 lbs and on science diet when I got him in early January. At his last vet appointment in mid march he was 34.5 lbs and has finally settled on Costco's adult dog formula (lamb and rice I think?). He might have lost a pound or so since then--but that could also have been just fur, hsha! I personally think he's just a little bigger than average corgis because he's pretty fit.

    Awesome outcome, Haven! You took on the role of nutrition specialist and personal trainer for your new handsome boy, Maurice. And ... you helped him go from chubby "chunk" to healthy "hunk". Good on ya both! Woohoo!!!!!

    "I" weigh more than I should. My corgis weigh between 23 and 30 lbs. for the Pems.

    I had one though that weighed 18 lbs. at maturity. She was just fine, only small.

    Remember the standard is the "ideal" for a corgi. NONE of our dogs are ideal or perfect. Mother Nature makes sure of that. There are corgis that are undersized and oversized. Yours is considered undersized. But if she's healthy and active, she's fine.

    Small isn't as common as oversize but it isn't really uncommon either.

    I always measure the kibble. That way I know how much each dog is getting. And if I need to adjust it, it's easy to add or take away a quarter to a half cup of food. I suggest you measure the dry food at least.

    Beneful is not very good food.... I'll just put that out there. Cheap dog foods make me want to cringe. And there are much worse ones that Beneful....

    Jordi is a 4yr old Cardi, he weighs 34 pounds and is in perfect condition. He gets 1c kibble AM/PM.
    Zero is a 4yr old Pem, he weighs 30 pounds and could lose a few pounds lol. He gets 3/4c kibble AM/PM.
    Fraser is a 1yr old Cardi in perfect condition. He gets 1 1/4c kibble AM/PM.

    All of them eat Royal Canin cocker spaniel diet... I've talked with the Reps and this diet has their "pinch cocktail" which is what is in their prescription foods and breed specific. They do really well on it. I also cook them brown rice with veggies. They get fruits and/or veggies almost daily as treats too.
