THE VIEW FROM OUR FRONT DOOR

 

 

Welgem's Cardigan Welsh Corgis are found just south of the Arctic Circle, at Mile 929.9 on the Alaska Highway, just northwest of Whitehorse in the Yukon.

Al & Lynn Alcock are the proud breeders of these wonderful dogs and are pleased to say that we have always found excellent adopting families for our pups all across North America and even as far away as Holland. 

Our Cardigans have achieved many first milestones in Canada's far north.  The first tracking dogs, as well as the first Cardigans in the Yukon, to achieve their Canadian Kennel Club titles.  We have been blessed to have one of our puppies take Best Puppy in Show, only one of a few Cardigans ever to have done so in Canada.  Our family is involved in many activities ranging from showing, tracking, agility, obedience and pet therapy.  A small dog with an attitude but with a heart of gold and a temperament to go with it.

All our puppies are raised with a great deal of  loving care and only leave when we are satisfied that their well being will be assured and that they're fit to travel to their newly adopting home.    

The history of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is rich with lore.

Cardis, as they are affectionately called, love to be part of the family.  Many Cardi owners have some very humorous stories of their "kids" following them everywhere.  We daily experience this lesson with our guys.  One can not go anywhere without being followed, no matter WHERE we go, which includes even the washroom.

We are proud of our family and are always happy to share our pictures and love of these wonderful dogs.  They have filled our home and hearts with happiness.  There really is never a dull moment when you have Cardi in your family.  We must warn you though - Cardigans are like potato chips, it is hard just to have one...
